the boys are just jealous they don't have arms like you. Nothing wrong with being muscular

There are a lot of women who are muscular and look bulky when overweight. When you lose that layer of padding, you will look very shapely. It's an illusion that you are overly muscular. I was the same way when I was speedskating and powerlifting.

You will start to look less muscular as you reach your goal weight. The only way to reduce the size of muscles is if you do a lot of bodybuilding or other strength training, in which case you could cut back or switch to a different form of exercise. But if you come by it naturally, you will find that just losing fat will make you appear less muscular.

Distance running has a tendency to make the upper body become less muscular. But when you get your body fat down to 22% or so, you will be surprised at how much less muscular you look.

You'll probably always be more muscular than other people due to genetics, but losing some weight will help with the bulk. I'm with eKatherine -- focus on something aerobic, like swimming or running, for exercise. I'm not an expert on strength training, but try low weights, high rep. My younger sister used to lift 5-lb weights at 100 reps each -- it toned her arms incredibly so she had little muscles and that nice round look to them.

You are 16 so this may not be a problem in 6 months. And slugging a dumb boy that makes fun of you in any way is completely 100% acceptable to me. You can tell the dummies I said to man up too.

Yeah Adelicia, I'm with reddarin. Tell em' boys to man up and build some muscles too. In any case, I suggest light cardio and you will lose the bulk. Eat healthy too, and the weight will melt off. Don't expect a quick fix though...

OP, you don't need the plan mentioned previously - - eat healthy, nutritious foods and get some cardio exercise. That person has posted three times and pushed that plan in all of those three.

I would suggest exercising - do some cardio, but I would also do weight training. While you may not want to look more muscular, if you can tone up you will look slimmer. I weigh about 5 lbs more than I did in high school, but I look so much slimmer. If you can join a gym and see a personal trainer that would probably be most useful for your age and then it would give you a foundation for your future. If not, then I would try getting some workout dvd's that incorporate weights. I use the slim in 6 slim series which has been helpful to me. It is important to learn the proper techniques so that you don't injure yourself. As far as diet, I would just cut back on sweets and snacks which are common for your age group; avoid fast food. Learn to like vegetables and try to make healthy choices when eating out.
