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.

“Okay so ignoring the fact this isn't the most accurate measurement for athletes or just anyone who exercises a lot I thought I'd take a quick look at what my BMI came out to. In the past I've usually been about 26, I've been fit and healthy but things like regular rock climbing pushed me over. Today I hit 24, not only am I healthier and fitter than I have been all year, but my BMI agrees. Good luck to everyone else :)”

Blythe E I lost what I needed to this week, which put me at the exact top of my healthy weight range however that also puts me at exactly 25.0 for BMI. Just a little more and I will be able to complete this challenge.
