  • Totally depends on how tall you are and your bone structure.

  • i agree with genagina it depends on how the weight is distributed and the height of the person. if a woman who is 5 ft 10 weighed 110 she would be underweight but for a 5ft woman that is not underweight.

  • Totally subjective. Build is a big part of it. Just because someone is skinny that doesn't mean they're healthy, and just because someone's overweight doesn't mean they're not. That's one of the *many* things wrong with American culture today. I weigh over 200 lbs, but you can see my muscles, and I run 5 days a week. I am still losing weight, yes, I am definitely overweight, but I am much healthier than many women I know, including some who weight much less than I do.
