How fat am I? Am I overweight?!?

Hi, I’m a 17 year old girl who is 5’4 and 164 pounds. I don’t really exercise and have found myself getting pretty unfit and gaining some weight. I don’t know if my weight is healthy. I don’t feel fat so I don’t think I do need to loose weight but I am getting a little chubbier. Will my weight be effecting my health? Please help

    You are at the high end overweight on the BMI scale. You could stand to lose about 25 - 30 lbs.

    being over weight is taxing on your heart and physically taxing on your back and knees

    You are about 35lbs over the AMA recommendation for your age and height. Are you jamming up stairs and running track at school and feeling healthy? Feeling healthy enough to engage in physically challenging adventures will suit you well going forward.

    Yes you are overweight. I'm your height and weigh 110 lbs.
