Is my weight good or bad?

I'm a 20 year old female, I am 4'11" and my weight fluctuates between 85-89, I have a very tiny bone structure,my wrist is less than 6 inches, my ribs don't stick out though and I've never had an eating disorder and I eat healthy and get all the vitamins that I need. I wish I had meat on me but my metabolism is so high, my mom is very thin too she's 5'6" and weighs between 115-120. So do you think I should worry about my weight or do you think it's ok since I'm very short and petite? Here's some pics of what I look like.

  • well according to the body mass index you are underweight. looking at your pictures though you don't look extremely skinny though. you look healthy, and like you said just small and petite.

  • your weight is just fine for your height and bone structure. as long as you eat right and aren't losing weight there is nothing to worry about. when i was 17 i was about 90 lbs and 5'2". i ate a lot, that was just a normal weight for me.

  • You're thin, but you look good to me. All I wanna know is if you're 4'11'' and 85 lbs ... how big is your SO?

  • Thanks everyone, my family always says things about my weight and it hurts and I was worried that I really did look anoerexic cuz some ppl do ask if I have ever had a eating disorder which I never have.
