Thanks for query,
You are having really more weight.
This we call obesity and not overweight.
You require weight loss very badly.
You go for thyroid and other endocrine glands check up.
Consult endocrinologist and seek his advice.
Ok and bye.

First, it depends on your body's bone structure as well as your height and sex. But most likely, this weight is dangerous for a young adult like you. I would recommend finding a friend, getting a gym membership and exercising. YOu must find motivation to do exercising consistantly. This should help you loose real fat, while gaining muscle. Also cut out any drink except water. This makes a huge difference.
