I am 5'4" and slowly losing weight. I eliminated sugar from my diet and cut out tea, coffee, pop, junk food. So what would be a healthy weight at 5'4"?

You should consult your physician.  Healthy weight varies from one person to another, even for people of the same height.

First of all you need to consult with a doctor. You might be allergic to some products, that's why you loose weight slowly. Also try to live more active life, find your favorite sport

for men of your height, 117 - 143 lbs. for women of your height, 108 - 132 lbs. you don't need to cut out coffee, getting rid of tea is prolly good as it reduces your body's oxalic acid load, giving your kidneys a break. if you avoid wheat and oats [gluten and gliadin] that will help your gut better process the remaining food you eat, that was my experience, i consistently gained weight every time i tried to reintroduce those things to my diet. make it a daily habit to work up a sweat exercising via interval training, where you either walk or run or bicycle or do jump-roping or such, full-tilt for up to 3 minutes straight [you'll start at 30 seconds at a time, then work up gradually], then cruise for 3 minutes [eventually that will reduce to 30 seconds], then full-tilt, then cruise, repeat 8 times. the copious sweat that will result will clean out your system and burn a lot of calories and maximise both your aerobic and anaerobic fitness. if you follow this regimen in addition to cutting out sugars [anything white like table sugar, rice, pasta, potatoes and corn] you WILL lose weight and maintain said weight loss.
