Generally one would ride a 147 if they are between the weight ranges of 125 and 155. However, with the current trend of having smaller boards to do primarily jibbing you will be ok (not good, not fine, just ok). It wont be able to hold an edge very well at speed and youre likely to break it if you take it off a big jump or press it too hard.
My recommendation would be to try and sell it on craigslist and grab yourself a bigger board of any flex. Somebody who weighs more than 180 would do best on a 154 as the minimum size.
Or you can lose some weight and you will be better off on the board. Id say that once you get to be about 170 lbs the board will perform better for you, and ideally if you could break 160 you'd be golden (so to speak).
