How much weight loss is too much?

When I was pregnant I gained sixty pounds. After I had my baby I started losing weight. So far I've lost eighty pounds. My BMI is now 18.5. I thought maybe I wasn't losing weight still, but my child is still nursing, and, well, I think I still see a pound disappear every few weeks. (At least it's not every week like at the beginning.) I try to eat as much as I'm hungry for and frequently.
I'm mostly wondering, is there a point at which I should go to my doctor about this?
Is there a way to determine if I'm still as healthy as I should be, even though I'm this light?
