  • Average that is a great weight for her height. My daughter is 15, 5 feet and 98lbs. Doc said healthy weigfht for her was between 90 and 110 pounds.

  • Sounds about right for her age.... According to the "Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee" Ages 19-34 if you are 5'1" 101-132 is ok. I know she is younger but I don't have the #'s for that age range. Her #'s do fall on the lighter side of this scale & she is 5 years younger so it would appear she is ok.

  • I myself worry less about weight and height but more about diet and exercise.  If she is eating 3 balanced meals and getting a 1/2 to an hour a day of exercise then she is probably fine.  The person to be asking this to isn't us but your daughters doctor.

  • That is normal. I was 5'2" in high school and weighed 90 lbs. As long as she is healthy don't be worried so much. My almost 13 yr old son is 4'9 1/2" and weighs 85 lbs. He is on the very low side for his age, but grows steadily so the doc isn't worried and neither am I. My brother was like this and is now 6 ft tall.

  • It's normal, why do you ask? Doesn't she look just right? Why would you think she is overweight?
