Most of us weigh in at grams, not pounds. Recommended weight for breeding is around 800-1000 grams. That said, I've bred my 5 year old female who weighs less than 800 grams (around 760). There is no way she would ever get to 800-1000 unless I fed her way too much and made her fat. Your female is much too small to breed. I think it's best to wait anyway. We tend to overfeed and bring snakes up to breeding weight quickly as we are impatient. I've gone very conservative these days since having one of my animals prolapse and as a result, they grow more slowly.
