I’m Currently Weighting 96 Pounds, Is That A Healthy Weight If I Measure 5’4″??
Hi: It’s Really Not Possible

It’s really not possible to take a number or measurement and say whether this equals a healthy or unhealthy weight for someone.
Of course, there are lots of factors and variables which can make a difference. Individual variation plays a role, as well as other metabolic issues and lifestyle concerns.
If you were to look at a chart measuring weight and height, you would see that 96 pounds is a low weight for someone who is 5′ 4″.
The question is, how are you maintaining this weight? If you are eating very little, binging and/or purging, over exercising, etc., then this could be an indication of an eating disorder.
Maintaining a healthy weight is about much more than the actual number of pounds you weigh. If you are concerned about your weight, I would encourage you to see a health professional or doctor to put your mind at ease.
Wishing you well.
