Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

The healthy weight for your height (155cm) should be within the range of:
45kg to 61 kg

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a widely accepted formula which is used to assess whether a person's weight for height is appropriate or not.

Your Body Mass Index works out to 23.33, which indicates a normal healthy weight.

WHO(World Health Organisation) - BMI Classification:
18.5 or less      Underweight     
18.5 to 24.99     Normal Weight     
25 to 29.99      Overweight
30 or more Obesity

Wish you all the best.
