    I got awfully pis*ed there for a second. Saw someone vote yes but didn't leave an opinion. But I looked, and it was you >.> We are often our own worst critics sweetheart. You are perfectly fine, and not fat at all. If someone is telling you that, please do me a favor, and punch them in the taint. Because they are wrong.

    You probably have more muscle mass because you are a runner. Please do not get caught up in the media images that give unrealistic photographs of what is considered normal or fat or skinny. Check with your doctor; however, according to standard height and weight charts, you are well under being fat. Strive to be healthy and happy with yourself.

    depends on how SHE feels

    No, not at all. I have a friend who is and inch shorter and 1 pound lighter, and she is super skinny. I'm guessing that you are too. If anyone is telling you that you're fat, slap them, 'cause they obviously don't know what they're talking about.
  • Magyarita 2011/08/16 00:48:34 (edited)
    I'm 5'5", not athletic and like 125 pounds. I'm skinny, although I've always had an embarrassing stomach.

    No, of course not! You're perfectly fine, I suppose. I can't really say because I don't know your body type, etc., but you sound normal, maybe even a little underweight, to me.

    DONT BE SELF CONCIOUS. I'm 14 years old, and I weigh 140 pounds. I don't appear to be fat. I'm 5"7'. Seriously though, if anything, that's underweight

    I'd love to only weigh 106 lbs. You're not fat, as a matter of fact you may even be slightly underweight. For a female that's only 5' tall, the correct weight is between 110 and 115 lbs. So, since you're taller and weigh less than that, I certainly don't think you have to worry about loosing a few lbs.

    Not even close to fat!
  • LittleMistersMom 2011/08/15 16:22:53
    I actually would think it's a little skinny. At your age though everyone feels akward in their body.

    In fact its thin. I used to think it was fat when I was your age, I had a belly too. Just try doing stomach crunches to tone your belly or other exercises.

    Not at all. If you're a runner, that's probably a few pounds light for you. If, at your ht/wt, you don't like your stomach, you don't need to lose fat, you need to build muscle. This will increase your weight, but muscular weight is good, so don't get hung up on the number.
    More importantly, you really need to be careful here. the concerned you're talking about here, are the precursors for eating disorders, which could thoroughly wreck your life. At your size, to worry so much about what your body looks like, means you are not concerning yourself with what matters far more: your health. If you are healthy, your body will look good. Athletic is good, thin is good, skinny is not. And speaking as a guy, women who are unhealthily thin, are less attractive than those who are overweight.

    That makes you underweight, but you probably know that. Quit looking for attention, it's quite obvious you are.
  • Pamu 2011/08/14 16:58:48
    you are under weight i feel ,you should be around 62 kgs, i.e.62X2.2=lbs

    Doctors use BMI (body mass index)...Yours is normal. It is based on your height and weight.

    NEVER let numbers on a scale define you!!!!!! Are you healthy? Do you eat right? Obviously you're a runner, so you exercise. That's good. Muscle is heavier than fat......please don't beat yourself up. I'm sure you are healthy and gorgeous! :)
  • Hukaatir 2011/08/14 14:55:32

  • American_Rights 2011/08/14 14:19:18
    Are you insane? That's a great weight for someone at your age if not underweight. I'm 5"2, almost 15 and I KNOW i'm overweight.

    That is a very normal and healthy weight for 5'2". It is in no way too heavy. We are often our own worst critic when it comes to how we see ourselves.
