Dear Thespinn
Your present BMI = 28,5 which is in the overweight range. If you weigh 69 kg you will be back in the normal range with a BMI of 25 and if you would like to have an ideal BMI of 22, then you would need to weigh 61 kg. Aim to first lose those 10 kg by using a well balanced, low-fat diet and daily exercise.
Best regards
