I'm 12 also, I weight 136lbs, but I'm tall like 5 3" and I don't look like I weigh 136 lbs.. All my frans tell me I'm soo skinny.. And I could wear a bikini if I wanted to.. So she should be between around 100 to 145 is a healthy weight for us taller girls.. And for the strech marks its most likely from her growing so fast.. Ive never had them but my sis uses cocoa butter with shea lotion and it erases them.. Hope this helped

Ok, I am 12 yrs old. I have NO strech marks, weigh 120(: And am 5ft 5. And I am a realy good size compared to everyone else(: I used to have problems in 3rd grade wth my weight. For my thys wach ing I did have stretch marks... Coco butter works fast(: I work out, so I hav a flat belly(: No abbs yet, but its flat. What I say to 12 yr olds who dr.s say r "overweight", I say your beautiful. And that your body isn't done growing yett mann, chill for a sec(: You should know that your not alone(: And when your wach ing TV, its good to get on the floor infront of the TV where you can still see, and do 30 crunches. Watch. Do that every day and don't drink coffe(: It dosnt sound like anything, but it works really well(: Just try it. But keep it consistent, and give it some time. Your smart and beautiful mann(: You just need people not to judge and give you a chance(:

Its ok. She shouldnt be embarrassed. I'm 12, I'm 160 pounds, and I'm 5 foot 5. But I'm active.I love sports. If you tell her to get more active, maybe people wont think that its muscle, not fat. Its all right, I'm really worried about myself and I'm really trying to lose weight. Its not quite working though...I wont give up though!keep trying...soon(or maybe no so soon), you'll get there.

I just turned 12 and I weigh 125 pounds I'm the biggest in 5th grade class.Some of my Friends only weigh like 60 pounds and they r my height, 4''9 so I know how it feels. I don't really no much about stretch marks though. All I know is that my mom is al ways wishing she could get rid of them but they wont.  But who cares about height marks any way. She is 12 years old its not like like she is going to be taking her shirt of for any body. So. What can I tell you?

The best for you and your daughter to do is go to your doctor and pick out the best diet plan for her and I say she should exercise Thats the best wieght loss solution you can ever accomplish because a diet at her age is very risky and can cause side effects .... As well as the stretch marks those will never go away unless you contact your doctor and ask him .....

I'm 13years old 5"6 and I weigh 160lbs. I have some stretch marks on my belly. I use creams to make them less noticeable, also water-proof oil base consular can help hide them up if she is embarrassed in a swim-suit. I have really bad weight problems. Right now, I eat small meals & drink ONLY Water, Milk, & Apple Juice. I've lost couple of pounds :]. I exercise when I can. I'm very active so yeah :}. I'm trying to weigh around 145lbs. Good Luck :D!

Weight dosent matter its how you feel about your self if she feels like she is a little overweight all I can say is eat healthier and play a fun sport I'm 12 and very involved in gymnastics soccer and lax I never weigh myself that just leads to disapointment but all my friends think I have a great body as well as the boys haha so it dosent matter the numbers it matters how she feels personaly and about the stretch marks I have like 1 or 2 on my hips kinda but its nothing to be embareesed about its because I'm a active girl and muscular!!!!

That is really big!!! 130 lbs??? I'm 49, 5'10 and weigh 126 lbs! My daughter, who is 12 and 5'5, weighs 81 lbs. Trust me! Anywhere over 110 lbs is NOT healthy! And quite personally it isn't very attractive. Both my daughter and I do not have eating disorders and eat, if anything, too much and too unhealthily!!!

textI am 17 and I am 5'7 and I have the same problem only I think I weigh 180 now cause I just had a baby. Before I had him I weighed 140 and I had stretch marks on my thighs and I am so self connivance about them and they are worse now. But what I am doing to get rid of this and I consider for your daughter is for her to go on a diet and lose a little weight not so much about to 130 that will make her look normal for being 12 and 5'5. My goal weight is 140 but I am 5'7, and after she loses her weight and turns a reasonable age like 15 or something like that have her get laser surgery. I haven't had it done yet but I have friends who have and it really works and it's not that much money.

I'm 12 and I weigh 95-100. your daughter is in danger.
well I'm guessing she will need laser treatment.the reason she can be in danger is because as when she grows older he can gain a lot of weight. so I consider you to get her on a diet or something and exercise a lot. but she not the only one. one of my friends is 12 and she weights about 150 157. she is really over weight she tells me she wishes to be like me. she is emberessed too. no worries though you daughter isnt the only one in this world. there a lot of people over weight and they have lost some weight. so try to encourage your daughter to lose some weight :) hope that kinda helped.

Well actually my friend was 5'7 at 12 and weighed 135 and she looked about 18 years old because of that...She looked pretty good to me. Could it be possible the stretch marks are from growing so fast rather then being to heavy.

If anything ask Her doctor he can tell you what she should weigh rather then the average weight.

Well, your daughter is a little overweight. I'm honestly 12 myself and I'm also 5'5 1/2 and I weigh 112 pounds. I used 2 be 104 but I gained during the summer. It might be because her bones r bigger that she might just weigh in the 160s. But you should really try 2 get her 2 lose weight. Not only will she feel better bout herself, her health is going 2 be a lot better and since she's in the age of growing, she's going 2 grow fat really easily so I suggest she should try 2 lose weight as 4 the stretch marks, I;m not sure because I don't have any myself

Well I think that she may be a little overweight. Maybe try a small diet of just not eating too much junk and also involve her in a sport or even yoga. As for the stretch marks, just pick up a cream. ( and other q I have is that I'm 12 and I'm 5'5 and I weigh like 114. Is that bad? I do have a bit of fat that I want to get rid of. Any tricks besides just "eating healthy and exercise". Be specific)

How much is 169 in kg? I am 60kg and I think its 120 and I am 5 ft 6 and I'm 12! So I think your daughter is overweight! I had stretch parks and you don't need to get lasered! All I did was get a cream from the body shop or somewhere and rub it everymorning over them and I also used a body wash in the shower and rubbed over them! They went away REALLY fast so your daughter can try that! :)

ps: Basketball is a good way to lose weight :)

I agree about the weight (130), but as for the stretch marks...try vitamin E on them first before considering laser treatment. Also, there is Bio Oil which you can get at walgreens.

A young lady such as the 12 year old should weigh whatever. Her body is still changing. People that weigh 100 pounds are crazy. I'm 12 and I weigh 190 so it doesnt matter. You should be worrying about this later maybe when she is 18.

Well I am 12 and I weigh 118 to 119 pounds. But I eat a lot of junk food. I am going to stop eating candy and that to lose some weight. I think she is over weight for 12 and it is not good. I don't care what anyone else thinks. She is big for her age and needs to lose weight. For the stretch marks. It isn't a big deal. Just get a cream or something to cover them up. I don't know

Well I think the average weight for a 12 year old tall girls I would say is 120-130.
But thats not completely accurate.So you should check out a height to weight ratio chart or talk to her doctor because I think its dangerous for a 12 year old to weight that much.
And tell her that she should start making healthy choices so she loses weight and gains her confidence.

I'm 12 and I weigh 133 pounds, I have stretch marks but they are going away because of Mederma(if it's too pricey consider baby oil) To be honest I don't think you should use laser treatment!   If your daughter really wants to lower her weight than nothing should be stopping her.

Okay so I weighed 160 lbs when I was 12 to thats not a very healthy weight but I'm sure no I'm absoulutley positive that she wants to loose weight also what YOU need to do for your daughter is without telling her start cooking or buying such fattening food for her, okay unless your a ''Tuba Tuba". And by the weigh your daughter doesnt even look fat she 5'5 man and she not fat shes fluffy!

As a pediatrician I deal with obese and overweight children everyday. I'm sorry to say that your daughter is obese. The ideal weight for a twelve year old girl that is 5'5 is anywhere from 70-110 lbs. Not 130 lbs. I would try putting her on a diet and getting her involved in some fun sports, such as volleyball. This is not just for looks but for health reasons too. Not at this age necessarily, but when she gets older. She will only gain more weight with time. As she grows the fat will constrict her organs making the travel of blood throughout the body more difficult. This can cause heart attacks and strokes at a very early age. Although she needs a diet, do not let her develop an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulemia. If your daughter gets over 180 lbs I would highly suggest therapy for her. As for the stretch marks, (which she should not have at such an early age) you can pick up some creams and solutions at any drugstore or doctor's office.
