Not a lot: If you cannot maintain a diet and exercise that will promote weight loss, there is not much you can do.

Body mass index: Use http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmi-m.Htm to calculate your body mass index (i'm curious, why did you use metric units if you're in buffalo, ny?) which comes out to 27.3 normal bmi is <25.
