    Dang, you're thin.

    According to http://www.consumer.gov/weightloss/bmi.htm#BMI , you're on the skinny side of healthy. I definitely don't think you should be losing weight...if you do, you'll be underweight!

    Why are you thinking about losing weight in the first place? If you have concerns about your body image, keep in mind that exercising might actually cause you to gain weight as you develop muscle...but you'll look more fit, feel better, and be more confident!

    Your BMI is 19, which is great, don't lose weight, you will become too thin, to the point at which it will be unhealthy.

    You're definitely healthy, on the skinnier end.
