average weight is 100 lbs for 5'0" and then add 5 pounds per inch. so, for 5'5"...125 is "average" but to determine a "healthy" body weight, you can add or subtract 14 lbs from the "average" So, conclusion...i think you're "normal"?! it's up to you to decide if that's a good/bad thing. Personally, i like to be different. Especially in the growing trend of obesity in this country.
