I think you are still too young to be worrying about those things. Just let nature take its course. As you grow, the baby fat will disappear

I disagree. You are going through puberty now. Therefore now is the time to get in the mode of being more active, eating nutritiously (cut back on your junk foods) to take care of the inner you as well as the outter you, your appearance. It is not too early for you to go for a brisk walk a few times a week or ride a bike, etc. Those are my suggestions for you. Also, with adult supervision, adding some light weights should help with toneing your limbs more. Don't get me wrong. I am not suggesting that you began a rigorous plan of any sort or become so obsessed with appearance either.

Quit eating junk food - soft drinks, fruit juices (sugar water), candy, cakes, cookies, chips, pizza, stuff like that. Eat more whole natural foods. It's never too soon to start eating healthy.
