I'm not 100% sure about the Vitality scheme. I guess the 83 days applies to your next test, and assuming you can meet certain targets, then you earn points on Vitality. But I'm not the person to ask about how those points are allocated. I assume there are some points for improvement (as in, you get your BMI down below 26.6), and you get even more points if you get it below 25, which is kind of the accepted level of BMI. So that means losing maybe 3 or 4 kg, which is doable if you start training now. Three months and you can do that.
I don't know about Level 2 - those levels, as far as I recall, are based on your heart rate during the fitness/step test, and so that just means you have to get fitter.
So regardless of the target, your objective now is to get fitter. And so a programme, and try to focus day by day, not necessarily on the end point. The journey, in other words. And for a programme, I'd check out this page:
And pick the one that you'll enjoy. If you enjoy it, then you'll do it, and that's the most important thing of all. So whether it's running, or cycling, or gym, as long as you enjoy it, it'll have an effect.
