Ideal weight - height relation is
Men: 106 pounds of body weight for the first 5 feet of height, 6 pounds for each additional inch.
Add 10% for a large frame size, and subtract 10% for a small frame size
That way your ideal weight should be 148 pounds=67 kg .......you should work out bit more to shed few kgs

Also you can go to this site for direct calculations
