Healthy Weight
You're in a healthy weight range for your height. You're lowering the risk of heart disease and diabetes that comes with too much weight.

Your weight is higher than it should be for good health. You are more likely to suffer from diabetes and to die from heart disease. You can reduce the risk of serious disease by lowering your weight through diet and a more active lifestyle.

Your health is at risk. Excess weight directly contributes to serious lifetime illness and early death. Your doctor can help you find ways to lose weight and stay healthy, or check out our basic guide to reaching a healthy weight.
