How much do I need to lose?

I'm 21 and I've gotten to the point where I really need to do something about my weight.

I'm around 5'9" tall, how much do you think I need to lose?

We can't just go by a picture.  How much do you weigh?

Depending on your frame size, you need to lose between 160 and 200 lbs.  

Here's a bit of a height/weight chart that pertains to you.

Height       Small Frame      Medium Frame       Large Frame

5'9"              142-151             148-160                  155-176

You look to be medium to large frame (?), so I'd say if you got down in the 170 range, you'd be doing pretty good.
