How warped is the UKs view of what is considered a healthy weight? Today 2022

So I’m a shade under 6’ 2 and weigh 11 & 1/2 stone in the morning before breakfast. I’m in decent shape. I don’t feel small. But I’ve had some comments from work colleagues about how skinny I am. I’m originally from the states, and what people consider to be a “normal” weight in Tennessee is laughable. I’m worried this is leaking into the U.K. I’m not pretending that I’m some muscle bound meathead, but when I’ve asked what should be a normal weight for my height to my colleagues, they’ve responded with 14-15 stone?? Yeah, maybe if I’m a pro athlete or some genetic freak. But if you look back at photos of men even in the 80s, I don’t think 14 stone would be considered healthy. Am I way off base here?

EDIT: feel like I need to add I’m around 11-13% BF and do yoga 3-4 days a week, walk to work every day ( 15 minutes each way) am vegan, and am planning on getting back into weight training as well. I’m also saying 14-15 stone at my current BF % and height is highly unlikely unless you’ve got great genes.

EDIT 2: I’ve seen some comments on here talking about how bmi isn’t necessarily accurate, how as long as you’re healthy it doesn’t matter, bone density, etc. I’m not completely disagreeing with you. But I’ve never met this mythic person who had so much muscle they were considered overweight who also didn’t have a ton of body fat. I’m sure they exist. I just don’t think they’re as common as some users seem to believe. I also think people vastly underestimate their body fat. When people see me without a shirt, they think I’m sub 8%. I’m not. I’m under 15%, but not by a lot.
