If your height is 5 feet than your ideal body weight should be 50 to 55 kg. Weight reduction will not effect your health if you will do it in proper way. Yes but fad dieting or crash dieting is not good option for dieting it may effect your health.

You are carrying about 15 Kgs excess load on your body. You can bring it down @ 2 Kgs per month. So in about 8-10 months you can be 55. Bringing your weight down will make you look slim and fit. You will be admired by your friends and everyone will respect you more. You will feel more confident and you can wear any type of clothes you want and look good in them. Your health and immunity will also improve and your body will be thankful to you. Go for it.
