    Not at all. You're of a healthy weight for someone your height - and I have seen jean sizes below 28 inch waist in shops before so honestly it's not that tiny at all x)

    Nope.

    You're the same height as me, and slightly heavier (I was just under 10st last time I was weighed and have a 27" waist), and I'm perfectly healthy. I've been called skinny, but I definitely don't look (or feel) unhealthy. Though my looking fine might partly be because I'm quite broad.

    You're definitely not underweight. Check your BMI (and IK it may not be wholly representative of whether or not you're a good weight etc.) but use it as a rough guide.
