Mann A July 24 -BMI 25.79 im slightly overweight.:(
According to the NHS, an adult is overweight when their body-mass index (BMI) is 25 or above. Being overweight can cause health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
A safe rate of weight loss is between 0.5 and 1kg per week, so take it steadily and don't try to crash diet. You don't want to yo-yo back once you get there.

“When I first started to set diet and fitness goals back in October, I was mainly concerned about weight. By February I had lost more than 23 pounds, and I hit my initial goal weight of 163 pounds. As I continued, I focused more on body fat percent and BMI. Furing the month of April I have maintained a BMI of under 25 percent. I want to set a new goal to drop that down to 22 percent.”

Steve C Quit smoking just over 2 years ago and my BMI was pretty much at 25. Exercise is a bit streaky but I am on a good streak since April. Not a believer in dieting but in diet...need to eat a bit better though. I have 10-15 pounds to shed. Main concern is keeping the exercise going and making my cheats little ones. :) Here we go...

Gretchin A Embarrassed to admit I am at 37.7 but not embarrassed to say that every day my hard work will go into lowering this number! I check my weight and BMI on Mondays, so Ill be back to share my progress!
Kym W Currently 26.6, I have been working down the bmi challenges from over 32 when I was obese. Would like to be under 25 and be boring and normal for once!
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
