Health Question & Answer

You are within a normal range. You are at the low end of the healthy range however, so be sure to maintain this weight or gain a modest amount, do not attempt to lose weight. At your age you need to be sure to get enough fat on you in order to be healthy. Women 14-28 need a fair amount of fat in order to keep in proper stores of calcium, vitamin d and estrogen in their system. Health Question & Answer

just go on this website
and type in the appropriate information and it will tell you if you're a healthy weight or overweight... etc.
hope this helps :)Health Question & Answer

That sounds about right, maybe a bit underweight. There are some scales that find percentage of body fat, or your doctor can find your percent. Females should be between about 16% and 28% body fat. Health Question & Answer

Neither, you're the perfect weight! I'm the same height as you and I weigh 105 lbs., which is about a BMI of 19. Underweight would be 98 lbs. and below, I believe.Health Question & Answer

You, my friend, are perfectly fine. You have nothing to worry about. I'm 5 and a half inch tall and I weigh 115, and I don't look *that* bad... so anyway you seem perfectly fine :)Health Question & Answer
