Dear Tummy
Your BMI = 20,7 which is already below the ideal for your height, so you are certainly NOT overweight. If your tummy bulges due to slack muscles then you can try doing targeted exercises (e.g. sit-ups) on a daily basis to tighten up the muscles. Ask your gym instructor for home exercises that target the tummy.
