How tall are you? 158 lbs is pretty small already. My lowest was 152 lbs, and I should probably have been heavier (I'm 5'11".)
Dieting and exercise only go so far, either losing weight or gaining muscle. There are also genetics and age at work. After that, you need supplements, a *very* restrictive diet, etc... I competed in a combat sport, which have weight categories, and having been there, done that (dieting, cutting weight, etc...) I have no desire to do that again. It's a huge PITA.
