I think she looks perfect. And she has an amazing YouTube channel with great workouts. I do them along with other stuff and hope to look similiar to her at some point. I would have to lose 15 - 20 lb tho (I'm at 130 right now) would that be unhealthy with a heaight of 5'6.
I know my BMI would say I'd be underweight then but so many girls are and they are still healthy
My boyfriend keeps saying that's way to skinny and that I'm gonna risk my healthy and ruin my body if I try to get there and now I'm kinda worried.
He's med school so he should know what he is talking about, but she is a fitness instructor she can't be unhealthy skinny, right?

The girls you linked to above are certainly on the thin side. They are also quite muscular/toned. Personally, I find it a bit much. If they lost a little bit of that extra muscle and had 5-10 pounds more on them, I'd find them more attractive. That's not to say they are unattractive, just that I think they could be better with a tad more weight. A girl that has a body as hard as a man's just strikes my brain as bit too masculine for my tastes.
If you were to get to 110 lbs that would be quite low for a girl of 5'6". You'd probably want to stay around 115-125, depending upon your body frame. If you are narrower to begin with, you won't look too skinny if you loose the extra weight. Still, I think your boyfriend has a point. The girls in those pictures above are obviously hardcore about their working out and if a girl gets too skinny it can throw off her hormones, not to mention he might be fearful that you could get an eating disorder.
Lose 5 lbs at a time and have your boyfriend check your blood pressure and heart rate. Keep things in a healthy range and don't worry too much about a specific poundage. You probably don't have as much weight to lose as you might think.0
