Our expert says:
Skim or fat-free milk is low in fat (0,2g/100 ml) and has a lower energy content (146 kJ/100 ml) compared to 2% milk (208 kJ/100 ml) or full-cream milk (257 kJ/100 ml). The carbohydrate content (mainly lactose) in all 3 milks is very similar (approx. 4.7 g/100 ml) which is in any case a low carb content. Cutting out carbs will not cause weight loss, but reducing energy intake will, so your change to using fat-free milk should help keep your weight in check. I must point out that your present BMI = 20,8 which is below the ideal for your height (for an ideal BMI of 22 you would have to weigh 62 kg), so you should not actually be trying to lose more weight. Doing any activity including housework, is beneficial to health.
