In brief: Weight loss

Your weight is appropriate for your height, with a BMI of 23.
7. Losing 20 lb is not advised, as that would put you close to a BMI of 19, which would make you underweight. A low BMI increases risk for illnesses, including Amenorrhea - absence of your period, which can put you at risk for infertility and premature osteoporosis. Eat healthy, drink 6-8 glasses of water daily and exercise moderately
