Am I fat or skinny or just right?

I am a girl. I am 5 feet 3 inches tall. I weigh 108 pounds. My friends say that I am too skinny because my ribs stick out a little bit but I'm not anorexic.

    Don't worry. As long as you have a healthy diet and you exercise, you should be just fine. Bmi is a cool way to measure, yet it does not account for bone structure or muscle mass, so you need to know what is right for you. From the info you have given me, it sounds like you are just right. I know I am... I weigh 107 and am 5'5''.4. I exercise a lot and maintain a really well balanced diet too. So, getting to the point it is not really about if you are skinny or not, but if you are healthy or not.

    Stay healthy during the holiday season,I hope I could help

    Well according to a BMI calculation, the result is 19.1. A BMI value over 25 is considered overweight and over 30 is considered obese. Underweight individuals have a BMI value below 18.5. I say you are at a healthy weight.
