More detail: We would need to know your height, weight, and more usefully your waist and hip measurements before being able to make this assessment. The cdc has a useful calculator you can use, when you have this information: http://www.Cdc.Gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/adult_bmi/english_bmi_calculator/bmi_calculator.Html.

Loss Physically Easy: All living creatures are open systems: i.e. all atoms we are made of keep changing, some rapid/some slow. Thus if we eat & store less than loose daily, wt. will go down. Calories: zero wt.; thus counting largely pointless. Track Wt. daily to 0.1 lb., after up&toilet, & review what eaten previous day to learn what works. Carbs/sugar most prone to store as fat. Fats (of natural origin) least stored!
