In brief: Lower Wt : Lower BMI

The body mass index (bmi) is a measurement that looks at one's weight in comparison to his height.
Tall people are allowed to weigh more than short people are. With a stable height, one's BMI drops if his weight drops. Bmi calculators are available at the doctor's office and also on the internet. An adult with a BMI of 18.5-24.9 is normal, 25-29.9 is overweight, and 30 or more is obese.

Limitations to BMI relate to how much muscle mass is present. Muscular individuals may have high BMI, but are not "fat" or "obese", simply overweight

Of course this is just a rough guideline and exceptions do exist but it is a great way to compare relative risk using a simple method.
