Well, there's some ft-m confusion going on there, but if it's your BMI you're after, it should be around 30 - there are lots of online BMI calculators, one Google search away.

Yes, absolutely; I know what my BMI is, but I'm concerned that they don't. Basically, I can earn these vitality points by reaching a target or sustaining it. In my case, that means that if I lose weight (and get into the healthy range), that's good; once I'm there, I need to stay there. However, if their website screws up the calculation, e.g. by thinking that I'm underweight when I'm actually overweight, that may affect the points, and that in turn affects how much I pay in my health insurance premiums next year. So, this isn't just nitpicking: their mistakes could cost me money.

Yes, given that there's money involved, they should be more careful than that. Hope they give you some bonus vitality points for pointing this out :-)
