Dear Star
Your present BMI = 34 which is in die obese range. To get back to the normal range with a BMI of 25, you would need to weigh 56 kg. Because you have 20 kg to lose, I would recommend that you try Xenical. Xenical is a real fat-trapper that prevents the patient from absorbing fat from what she eats. Xenical is, however expensive so it would help if your dr could motivate for this medication to be paid for by your medical aid. Xenical is used with a very-low-fat diet and good results can be obtained with it.
Best regards
