Dear Ina
Your present BMI = 26,3 which is just above the normal range. If you lose the 8 kg your BMI would equal 23,5 which is nicely within the normal range again. Try eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
Good luck
