Dear Reader
Your present BMI = 23,4 which is nicely within the normal range (18-25). You could try losing 3 kg to get down to 58 kg , which would give you an ideal BMI of 22. For such a limited weight loss you need only cut down a bit on fat and do 30 min of exercise a day (skip, walk, jog, cycle or join a gym).
Best regards

forget about BMI,its not yourself a favour , look at yourself in a mirror, feel tha way your clothes fit u,ask someone u trust to look and even measure your fat by pinchers.BMI does not take into consideration your body type.following BMI calculations strictly could be harmful mentally and physically , so use various methods .

No you are not overweight - your BMI is 23 -if you loose 2kg you would be a perfect 22

well i am 23 and weigh 68 - and am far from overweight - i gym every day 45 minutes weight training - so you cant judge by what the scale says - are your clothes getting tight - how do you look - those are thing you must take into consideration not your weight - and if you are picking up weight just start eating properly and start going to gym
