Your current BMI falls in underweight category and to be in the healthy or normal weight category with your height you have to be 7 stone and 7 pounds or 105 pounds as then your BMI will be in the healthy normal individual group. Anorexia is mainly a mental disorder and it is not linked with absolute weight values, but the normal healthy BMI for your weight is in between 18.5-24.9

Good luck
