How to lose weight fast

Hi i'm a 13 year old teenage girl. I am overweight for my height and age group and desperately want to be normal size again. I want to do this in around a month. What are the quickest and easiest way to lose weight? Also I'm not able to go on a special diet as my parents won't allow it! (they don't want me going anorexic!) I am willing to exercise but hopefully not anything TOO hard!

please help asap!

Controlling portion sizes and exercising will help more than anything, since I'm sure your parents provide plenty of healthy food.  Stay away from the junk, like candies, chips, sodas, etc.

Lets start with ...How tall are you and how much do you weigh?
then go to how much do you think you need to lose and where are your problem areas?

Losing weight slowly and gradually is the healthiest way to go about it. It may seem like it's taking forever, but if you lose weight slowly, it's more likely you'll keep it off.
What do you mean by "special diets", exactly? I would NOT suggest a fad diet at all, because those don't work long term. Making healthy choices is a lifestyle change! Eating more fruits, veggies, whole grains and lean protein like chicken or tofu, and eating less sugary drinks like sodas and high fat snacks like candy bars. That doesn't mean that you can't have those treats once in a while - if you don't allow yourself to have a treat sometimes, you'll end up craving them all the time!
Maybe you should ask your parents to help you. You could go on walks, go swimming or something together, and prepare healthy meals together. That way, you could spend some time with family, and have people to confide in to make the journey easier.

Whole grains are a healthy part of any diet, unless you are allergic or intolerant.  

I couldn't find the functional fitness.com, but it sounds like something that could be expensive.  

Regular exercise, such as walking, biking, swimming, etc are excellent for building muscle and burning fat. You don't have to do anything strenuous.
