180-190 lbs: Bmi (body mass index) is a measurement of fat based on height and weight. Your current bmi is 37.0. Bmi is used to determine if you are overweight, obese, underweight or normal. Bmi between 35and 39.99 are considered obese. The best option for you is to talk to your family doctor about a well balanced diet and exercise.

175 - 185 lbs: Your weight should be around 180. This will get you to a body mass index below 25. You can be higher in weight if you are more muscular. For example, a body builder usually weighs more than his or her ideal weight secondary to large muscle mass. Work on loosing fat with eating more protein, much less carbs and exercise more with plenty of water intake.

Ideal body weight: Ibw for a female 71" tall is calculated to 156.1 lbs; for 72" tall, 161.2 lbs. Current body mass index (bmi) is 35.9 (obese). Preferred bmi is 18 - 25. If you lose weight to reach 161 lbs, your bmi will be 21.8, in the middle of the preferred range. Limiting portion size, eating lean protein, good fats, low glycemic index carbohydrates, plenty of fruits & veggies, plus exercise can attain goals.
