It really depends on whether you're a boy or a girl...the norm for boys your age and height is around 90-110 lbs but the healthy weight range extends farther beyond that. You may be overweight because of the muscle, but that doesn't make you obese. I'd advise you to stabilize you're weight for now and then talk to your doctor about losing weight If it becomes an issue. The same really applies if you're a girl.

Well I just turned 14 and I used to be 124lbs. at 5'1. Now I'm 1/4 of an inch. away from 5'2 and I'm getting closer to my goal weight (105) at 114lbs. -been maintaining that for about a month and in 2 weeks I'll be going to the gym with my new gym membership. So.. Yeah. :]
I'm 13 and 95 pounds. I am too skinny, you are fine

You are fine. What you want to do is firm up. Do some sit ups for your stomach.

according to the medical charts -- a 5'1" 13 year-old female should weigh between 86-119 -- however, you have to remember that you are growing -- and you could be 5'2" or 5'3" in a month...

You exercise regularly -- stick with it and you will grow into your weight, especially if you are muscular.  Being muscular can make a world of difference.

I'm a 13 year old female who is 5'1" and I weigh about 107 and I feel fat . I am very muscular cause I do cheerleading but I need to loose weight :(
I'm a 12 year old, 5'1" and weigh 83 pounds. Looking at other people in my school I am WAY too skinny I have a friend named Natalie who is actually like me. We try eating a lot but can not. We want to be in a healthy range and I think 100pounds is a healthy weight.
