BMI and weirdnesses

I'm getting back on WW after a year being off.

The only problem I have is that I think WW's goal weight for me is totally off-base. It makes me wonder if I am just weird?

I am 5'4" and it tells me I should weigh 146. I honestly do not see how that is possible. And I'm not saying "Oh I'll never get there" I mean, for me to weigh that, I would look sickly. In my high school days, when I was my smallest, I played basketball, volleyball, and softball I weighed 150 and had a 28" waist.  So when someone tells me that weighing 150 is "fat" I feel extremely frustrated. Is this making sense? I would love to just weigh 155 again, but I'd be fine with 160. But 146 is insane.  I just don't know how I could weigh that and look healthy.

I don't know if this makes sense. I weigh 175 right now and I wear size 10-12 pants. Is that normal? Does anyone else have this problem?
