How to lose 18kgs in five to six months the healthy way?

I am 17 years old and 147cm or 4 foot 11 inches and weigh 63kgs or 140 pounds, my goal is 45 kgs or 100 pounds as this is a heathly weight for my height. Weight has always been an issue with me and I have tried loads of fad diets, its time to finally do this for me and do it the healthy way!
I do range of exercise every week, monday and wednesday yoga tuesday a combat kick boxing class and thursday a weights and aerobics class and saturday another weights class. I try and walk on the treadmill as much as possible but I am finding it hard with my work load. I am finally ready to lose weight for me, no more set timetables, as they say slow and steady wins the race.

What I am looking for?

Any food tips, or great recipes and the good foods I can eat, I do know only a certain amount of carbs and protein and half a plate of veges (have been doing this for years :P)

To know how to stop my cravings, this is the bit where it gets really hard, I walk into my kitchen and there is all the food, even though it is mostly good, I just don't know how to control my bad eating habbits! So any tips would be great thank you!

I am ready to finally lose this uneccessary weight and I am finally doing this for myself, not for my parents or so people won't judge me or for a certain date like my ball just for me, this is a life change not a quick 2 month quick fix and then go back to your old habbits, this is all about you!
Its your time now, and I am going to take as much time as I need because I know that I can do this, I have the motivation I just need the will power, and thats were you guys come in, so if you could give me any tips that would be great!

Thank you, so much

Answer on How to lose 18kgs in five to six months the healthy way?

u need to run for like 20-30 min at lest 4 times a week, you can do crunches to help lose weight(everyday) do like 3 sets of 20-30 crunches. do push ups(will help your shoulders and core along with chest. do some tricep dips like 3 sets of 15-25 and do it like 3-4 times a week. also u might want to do some lunges and squats about 3 sets of like 20-30 and do it 3-4 times a week. and do stair runs (running up and down stairs). also if u have a jumprope do like 70- 100 jumps. don't take more than 1 minute or 2 minute break between each set otherwise your workout wont be as effective.

you need to do some exercises everyday like running but u need to remember that u cant do all of them everyday because u wont give your body a rest and u will just burn yourself out.

the diet is easy to do, just stay away from junk food and don't drink or eat things with a lot of sugar because you body wont burn any fat it will just use the insulin energy instead or the burning fat. so don't eat candy or drink soft drinks and don't even drink fruit just the isn't 100% fruit juice or has added sugar because its as bad as a coke or soft drink.

And remember that you wont see results right away it might take 2 months before u start seeing good results, there is no quick fix for loosing weight healthily.
