Dear Patricia
A BMI above 30 is regarded as obese, a BMI between 25 and 30 is regarded as overweight and a BMI between 18 and 25 is regarded as normal. If I have calculated correctly (we don't use stone and lb in South Africa) and you weigh 103,3 kg at present, then you would need to reduce down to 74 kg to have a BMI of 30, and down to 62 kg to have a normal BMI.
Best regards
DietDoc
