I am not underweight anymore

But BMI isn't very accurate. It doesn't account for body fat or muscle mass. So it really doesn't say anything about health.

Asides from BMI not being very accurate to begin with, I dont think a very large amount of people were used for this, as no way am I lighter than over half the population of the UK
