Do not use those calculators.... they don't work because they cannot really figure in your true fat content. I am 5'4" and weigh 164 lbs but I am solid. I work out a lot so I have a lot of muscle. The calculators said i'm overweight... 1.9 points from being obese actually... yeah not even close to obese. I wear a size 9 or 11 jeans...all solid.. thank you. Bottom line, don't use it, it will just put you down and lie to you.

i'm sorry to the above poster, but a size 9 or 11 is not "solid." the only way you should be packing 150+ pounds at your height would be if you're a competitive bodybuilder.
fresh off my last exam, BMI is weight (kg) divded by height (m^2) squared. it is used as a rough guideline though. don't stress over it.
