Healthy weight range depends on your frame size.  Here's a portion of the height/weight chart for women:

Height                     Small Frame            Medium Frame       Large Frame
  5'6"                          120-133                   130-144                  140-159

If you don't know how to tell your frame size, look at your hands/feet; are they considerably smaller/larger than others your height?  Are you shoulders narrower/wider?

Your weight also depends on muscle mass.  If you're very active and have a lot of muscle, chances are, you will weigh more than someone who doesn't have a lot of muscle.
