Smallsmileys150 Am I at a healthy weight?

I'm not really self-concious about my weight, but my mom keeps talking about making me family "healthy".

What is a healthy weight for a 14 year old girl who is 5'4"? I have a slightly husky build (broad shoulders, I'm pretty strong) and I'm sorta curvy (curvy hips) but otherwise I'm pretty flat (small boobs, flat-ish butt). What would you estimate would be a healthy weight range? I'm just curious to see if the weight I'm at is okay...

You can look it up on google. There are charts online that base your ideal weight on your height and age.

Even if you're slightly overweight at 14 it's likely to all be gone by the time you're 20 if you keep a healthy lifestyle.

BMI: Weight for a Person (Female) 5 ft 4 in Tall: 57 kg (range 49 to 66 kg)
The Hamwi Formula: Weight for a Female 5 ft 4 in Tall: 54 kg
A Healthier Forumula: Weight for a Female 5 ft 4 in Tall: 50 kg

Edit: Not sure if your age being 14 will have an impact on the above results due to fact that the test I ran were not applicable for kids but for an 18 year old female those were the ideal healthy weight for those tests.

I would imagine that you're probably just fine. As you continue growing, your weight is going to fluctuate a lot along with your body shape. So as long as you're not eating poorly and are being healthy by getting the nutrition you need then I wouldn't worry to much about it. You won't really even out until you get near your twenties at which point you'll want to start developing good habits if you haven't already so you can be prepared to compensate when you get closer to your thirties or whatever age your metabolism starts to slow down. Everyone is different. Your mom is probably more concerned with health rather than your weight as they are not necessarily one in the same.

P.S. - if anything, you're mom is probably feeling self-conscious about her or your dad's weight mostly. In a family, it can be hard to make lifestyle changes when everyone in the house isn't on board. So, she might simply be looking for a support so she can change something about her body image rather than yours

Based on BMI, anywhere between 108lb-143lb is healthy for your height.
