I am a 5'3" 20 year old college female. I currently weigh 162 pounds. When looking at online BMI calculators they all say I am overweight. But, I used to weigh up to 20 pounds more than I do now. This weight was removed by participating in college marching band. After marching band is when i lost all of the weight and I have continued to hold the weight steady for over 2 years. I try to exercise everyday and watch what I eat. So why am I considered overweight and should I be worried? My doctor is a pediatrician and never seems interested to talk about weight.
