    BMI = ( Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703

    So your BMI is (126/(64 x 64)) x 703 or 21.6.

    to lose fat, you just limit the fat intake in your diet (read the labels) and exercise. Right now you sound like you are right where you need to be though!

    Your BMI is 21.6, smack in the middle of the normal range, according to http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/

    To lose fat, you need to consume fewer calories than you exert through basic living and moving, while not dropping below starvation level (1500 calories per day for teens, 1200 for adults with no growth in 3 years), where you body saves stored fat and uses muscle for its energy.

    It's easy for some, hard for others. I bet you know what your worst eating habits are, whether it's soft drinks or fried food or candy. What can you do to improve that?
