BMI stands for Body Mass Index. I was just looking mine up in a newspaper article which I kept. BMI is basically a measure of weight in relation to height. The National Institutes of Health developed a chart for men & women which shows where you stand in regards to your BMI. Anything over 30% is considered high and you're then at risk for diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, etc. I am currently on a diet and am 5'6" tall and weight 158 - my BMI is about 25.5% (which is in the "overweight" range). I need to get down to at least a BMI of 24% to be in the "normal range" which is where you are. In fact you're just about in the middle of normal which ranges from 19% to 24%. So whatever you're doing or have done, it worked.

BMI is not a very good system though. If you are short stocky jock you will register on the obese end of the scale while tall lean people register as anorexic. It is better to have your body fat checked at you local gym than to use this indicator.
