The answer

The best way to work out if your weight is within healthy range is by calculating your body mass index (BMI). A healthy BMI is 18.5 to 25. You can easily find calculators to do this on the internet. For your height, a healthy weight range is between 7st 10lb and 10st 6lb. Or 49 kg to 63 kg.
