I have lost 30lbs over the past year and I can now say that I'm content with the look of my body and the energy level. 160lbs at 5'7" considered overweight still?

It's hard to tell going by just the height and weight. The BMI isn't accurate. It really depends on your measurements, and if you can get an accurate reading, your body fat percentage. You could be slightly overweight (according to the BMI) but you might actually be slim. You could be muscular like me. I'd say check your measurements and go by that more than how you weigh.
For me, I am 5'4 and 140. Generally, that's not overweight but it can be slightly chubby for girls my height. In fact about five years ago (when I was about 24/25) for me that made me chubby. Now I work out every day and I eat healthier; I am a lot slimmer than I used to be. I can fit in the clothes that I wore at 115/120 (when I was 20) and the clothes that I wore at 140 five years ago are way too big. I never throw clothes out unless they are worn, so I go by that.
So if you haven't been, work on building muscle too. Keep on what you're doing, because obviously it's working but muscle is always good to have as well. I used to be scared to build muscle because I was afraid I'd be bulky like those body building women, but you won't be. It's actually hard to build that much muscle. People spend years and it can still be hard to achieve that look. So if you're worried about looking bulky or not feminine don't be.1
