    Your weight now is fine (in my opinion)- no need to work on losing any. If you are concerned that you don't look like you want to, add in some strength training and start working at getting more fit and healthy. Muscle weighs more than fat, so while the darned scale may say the same it always does, you'll notice clothes fitting different and some of the soft spots fading away while the rest of you gets more toned up. Are you tracking and measurements? That might be a better indicator of progress for you than weight at this point.

    How about instead of focusing on how many pounds you need to lose, pick a body fat percentage you want to be. Weight on a scale can easily fluctuate up to 5lbs to picking a number you want to be is kinda useless. Hope that helps!

    Don't lose a pound, you look awesome already! If anything, maybe some resistance training to tone.

    I agree with everyone else who has mentioned using weights to tone up- although you look fantastic as-is!

    I agree with everyone who says that you already look great, but I do think that if you lost the remaining 12lbs that are on your ticker and focused on toning up, you'd look even better.

    Quit worrying about the number on the scale and go with how you FEEL. If you feel, comfortable, confident, and happy and this is an easy to maintain weight for you for life, stick at 130 and start toning up.

    I wouldn't bother with diet at this point, you look great...hit the weight room and start working on body composition. You'll burn fat and build can stay roughly the same exact weight and look like a completely different person.

    # on the scale isn't what is important. You look great! So, if all of those different weights didn't satisfy you, I'd go with weight training to tone.

    I think you look fine like you are now, maybe add some weights now and tone up!
