This is the image we were shown in health class - showing that actually, in terms of mortality risk, an 25-27 BMI is as healthy as 19-21. In fact, going purely by the facts, there's NO reason 25-27 should be considered overweight while 19-21 is considered ideal. Go for where your body is comfortable! I was disturbingly thin when I hit my original goal of 140, and my DD boobs, hearty peasant stock muscles, and child bearing pelvis all looked out of place on basically a skeletal frame.
