Dear Shabu
Do you mean that your height is 4 foot 11 inches?? If so, then your present BMI = 24,9 which is just still within the normal range. It may be a good idea if you weighed 50 kg with a BMI of 22, which is ideal for women. But only if I understood your correctly that you are 4 foot 11 inches tall. If you would be 4.11 metres tall you would be a giant!
