Healthy: Your Body Mass Index is at 63% - a healthy weight. The range of weight your height can carry and be healthy is 88-130 pounds. Stay active - drink lots of water and eat balanced diet with fruits/veges/fibers. Get 8 hours of sleep - limited sleep can contribute to weight gain. If your weight concerns is becoming an intrusive worry - visit with your MD. Right now relax and enjoy life!
