Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your BMI is 25.38, the BMI between 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight. You are Overweight. But don't worry, with regular exercises and avoiding high calorie diets you can reduce your weight. Exercise regularly and brisk walk for 30 to 40 minutes daily.

Wish you Good Health.
