Re: height n weight prob

Diet and exercise are your only options. Reduce your caloric intake by eating healthy whole foods and skip the high fat and high sugar foods. Start an exercise program you can stick with. Find something that you like to do and be consistent. Basically its calories in vs calories out. The hardest part is getting started, but once you get the food and the exercise down it gets easy.

Very doubtful. We usually stop growing by the time we reach 17.
