In brief: Weight loss

Stick to a plant based diet, do aerobic exercise 4 to 6 times a week in your target zone, being a little breathy and do weight training three times a week.
You should see results in time with this regimen. Best.

In brief: Be cautious

The routine you describe should certainly cause you to lose weight.
At 16, you are at risk of "body dysmorphic disorder" which is when you see abnormalities in your body that do not exist. Use a bmi (body mass index) calculation tool online using your weight versus height. A normal weight is a bmi between 18.5 and 25. Less than 18.5 is underweight and can lead to complications. See your doctor.
