"What's the right weight for my height?" is one of the most common questions girls and guys have. It seems like a simple question. But, for teens, it's not always an easy one to answer. Why not? People have different body types, so there's no single number that's the right weight for everyone. Even among people who are the same height and age, some are more muscular or more developed than others. That's because not all teens have the same body type or develop at the same time.

It is possible to find out if you are in a healthy weight range for your height, though — it just takes a little effort. Read on to discover how this works. You'll also be able to put your measurements into our calculator and get an idea of how you're doing.
Growth and Puberty

Not everyone grows and develops on the same schedule, but teens do go through a period of faster growth. During puberty, the body begins making hormones that spark physical changes like faster muscle growth (particularly in guys) and spurts in height and weight gain in both guys and girls. Once these changes start, they continue for several years. The average person can expect to grow as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) during puberty before he or she reaches full adult height.

Most guys and girls gain weight more rapidly during this time as the amounts of muscle, fat, and bone in their bodies changes. All that new weight gain can be perfectly fine — as long as body fat, muscle, and bone are in the right proportion. Because some kids start developing as early as age 8 and some not until age 14 or so, it can be normal for two people who are the same height and age to have very different weights.

It can feel quite strange adjusting to suddenly feeling heavier or taller. So it's perfectly normal to feel self-conscious about weight during adolescence — a lot of people do.
Figuring Out Fat Using BMI

Experts have developed a way to help figure out if a person is in the healthy weight range for his or her height. It's called the body mass index, or BMI. BMI is a formula that doctors use to estimate how much body fat a person has based on his or her weight and height.

The BMI formula uses height and weight measurements to calculate a BMI number. This number is then plotted on a chart, which tells a person whether he or she is underweight, average weight, at risk of becoming overweight, or overweight.

Figuring out the body mass index is a little more complicated for teens than it is for adults (that puberty thing again). BMI charts for teens use percentile lines to help individuals compare their BMIs with those of a very large group of people the same age and gender. There are different BMI charts for guys and girls under the age of 20.

A person's BMI number is plotted on the chart for their age and gender. A teen whose BMI is at the 50th percentile is close to the average of the age group. A teen whose weight falls between the 85th and 95th percentile is considered overweight because 85% to 95% of the age group has a lower BMI. A teen above the 95th percentile is considered obese. A teen below the 5th percentile is considered underweight because 95% of the age group has a higher BMI.

To figure out your BMI, use the tool below. Before you start, you'll need an accurate height and weight measurement. Bathroom scales and tape measures aren't always precise. So the best way to get accurate measurements is by being weighed and measured at your doctor's office or school.

Depends somewhat also on how tall you are. If you are quite tall then it sounds ok to me. The most important thing is to be healthy and fit, dont get hung up on weight at your age.

Depends on your height really and other factors.

If your 120lbs and 3 feet tall, then yes, you would probably be considered fat. If your 120 lbs and 6 foot, then you would be considered skinny.

So, at 14 lets say your 5'2", then no, your not fat.


rosalis_jaquez
No, you're not fat, as others said it depend on your height, but believe me in that age nothing stay the same...... if you fell out of shape, just try to do some exercises but just to stay healthy, not to be too skinny, and in the other hand....with whom are you comparing yourself that make you fell fat?....

take a minute and be proud of yourself not matter what.....I have extra pound (i had a baby, 5'6" was 134 now 160) I m proud everyday of my body and my curves.

No. You are NOT FAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You aren't even old enough to have grown into your body. You also didn't consider your height or body type, or heredity. I would make sure I ate healthy and exercise for 20-30 min a day . Dont starve or hurt yourself, You are fine.


Hello

There is a system that doctors use to figure out over and under weight patients known as the Body Mass Index System. A healthy Body Mass Index is between 19 and 24.9. The formula is BMI = [weight / (height x height)] x 703. There are some people that argue with it, and say that it does not take into consideration frame size, and some people have bigger bones than others genetically.
Basically it depends on how tall you are. Measure yourself in inches and times them by each other. then divide it by your weight. Then, Times that by 703.
Keep in mind, 19-25 is considered good; however, a number or two in ether direction does not mean that you should get to exited, but you should watch yourself.


~Do it again Brit!~
how tall are you? i doubt your overweight.


Lil Bee
HECKY NO! You're perfect, skinny even. Overwieght for your age would be like...well your not overweight and I'm positive of that!
