Well, first, welcome to the forumz

I'm 15, I'm female and I weigh 120 pounds. I probably only weigh a little more than you because I'm 5'7"
I'd say you're normal. Your BMI isn't even accurate until you're full grown so even though it says underweight now (which it will, as it does for me) I'm sure you'll be average weight once you start growing into a man which you have yet to do I assume.

You are slightly, your BMI is 18.0.

Mine is 17.4 though, I wouldn't worry

It's more so up to you, you're not 80 pounds, or 200 pounds, so it's up to you and how much YOU want yourself to weigh and look. Gaining more wouldn't be bad, but it's not necessary. it's up to YOU. You're also about to hit puberty bad, where the teen male's body changes incredibly over the next three years, so don't worry too much.








When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

^Anywhere from 18.5-24.9 is normal. If you haven't calculated yours yet, you can do so here: http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/

But, yeah, I wouldn't worry about it too much yet. You've still got plenty of time to grow.








Wherever you go, there you are.

You sound a lil underweight to me. I was around 125 at 14 but I was idk 5'11. And that was pretty underweight I thought. But I was and am a distance runner so. But may I ask, why it matters? Do you feel unhealthy or getting teased or what? As long as your happy and healthy it doesn't really matter unless you want to play american football or something. Plus you will still prolly get much taller and gain weight and muscle along with it.
