Dear Me
Are you sure that your height is 1.47 and not 1.74 m??? because if you are only 1.47 m tall, your present BMI would be 30,1 which is in the obese range. If you are 1.74 m tall then your BMI = 21,4 which is still within the normal range. If you have been skipping meals then it is possible that your energy intake has been insufficient to sustain normal weight. However, partially unexplained weightloss is always a cause for concern, and I would recommend that you have a medical examination just to make sure that you are not ill.
