There are a lot of factors in determining an accurate average weight for a person. These include the subject's height, their sex, their location and whether they are a professional sportsman or sportswoman. Age is less of a factor although the levels of body fat in children and young people does change with age and does differ between boys and girls
If we're talking about the ideal weight for a thirteen year old male who is not a professional athlete then his optimal height should be 5' 2" (62") (it usually ranges from 4'11" to 5' 5 3/4") and his optimal weight will be 102 pounds, (but can realistically range from 80 pounds up to 135 pounds and still be healthy).
If we're talking about the ideal weight for a thirteen year old female who is not a professional athlete then her optimal height should also be around 5' 2" (62") (Normal height can range from 4'11 1/4" 5' 5 3/4") and her optimal weight should be around 102 pounds (but a range from 82 pound to 137 pounds is common).
Averages heights differ from country to country and so do the corresponding weights and I have used US averages here.
As you can see people in the early stages of puberty fluctuate widely in size and shape as hormones kick in at different times. As long as the subject is happy and not obviously under-nourished or obese then things will be fine.
I'm 13 and I weigh 175 I'm 5'6 and all the girls at my school are super skinny and I feel so fat compared 2 all my friends
No! Shes not over weigh! She is just at that age where she is getting taller and getting ready to thin out. Its part of growing.
I'm 13 too and I weigh 125. But weigh doesn't matter! Its how you feel. I do sports and I dance and I love the way I feel! When your at 13 you are changing. Also mussel weighs more than fat.
I have people that go to my school that say," oh, she looks fat!" but they only say that to make them feel better. So when you walk by someone who says,," oh, she looks fat!" you could walk by and don't lessen to them. Or you could walk up to them and say," that is plain rude! You have no right to say that! I'm perfectly healthy the way I am!"
thats what I say and they back off.

I know what it's like to feel fat and...it's not fun last month I weighed 132 or soo and now I'm down to 120 (and still feel fat) and want to lose 5 more pounds or a few more I'm 13 so I'm sure I might understand what's going through her head...a bit. The best thing you can do is support her decision and don't pressure her to much into either direction, over all it's her choice and us budding teens like to have as much control as we can in our own lives (whenever someone tells me I need to stop losing weight it just makes me depressed and even more determined to keep going) if she's having eating problems, like you think she's going bulimic or anorexic that's when you should intervene because it will just make a person have more issues with their weight when they stop and it's plain nasty and unhealthy. The best thing she could do is tone up by jogging or possibly swimming that way she doesn't feel fat (working out just makes people feel better about themselves in the long run) just remember overall support her decisions or she'll grow to resent you and feel as if you're against her, but don't let it get to her so much that she get's deppressed BUT THE MAIN POINT IS FOR A THIRTEEN YEAR OLD SHE'S A HEALTHY WAIT BECAUSE IF SHE'S SHORTER SHE STILL HAS TO GROW AND 117 IS HEALTHY FOR HER AGE did I mention I can be a hypocrite?
Hey I am 13-year old and it is depending on the height and how tall you are. I am about 1.62 and weigh at 57kg. I don't think I am fat even though I have a high weight. Also muscle is heavier than fat so depending on you hit and muscle you can be anywhere between 40 to 65
Well, I am 13 and weigh 126 pounds and I am 5"2. If you are 13 and 129 pounds, that does not mean you are obese. I quess I am trying to loose a little bit of weight, but that is only because I want to be in better shape then I am now. You are perfectly fine if you way 126 pounds as a 13 year old because you are still growing.
I'm 13 I'm 5ft7 and I weight 154, I think I'm overweight and I'm really big, but my friends tell me I look fine, maybe its just all in my head, sooner or later I will loose weight, but the worst part is, my self esteem is low because my father teases me about my weight and keeps on saying I'm fat, and he means it, but what I learnt from that is that you shouldnt care bout people's oppinion, everyone is beautiful in their own way! :)
I'm 12 turning 13 and I weight 174 but I'm 5,8 and I non of my friends consider me fat
I am 13 and I only weigh 85 but recently I gained a lot of weight now I am up to 100 in about a week.... I gained a lot of weight....
Help! Whats wrong
I am 12 turning 13 and I'm 4" 10 inches and I weigh 92 lbs is that goood or bad???
Hi, I am 13 and I am 165 cm ( 5'5). Currently I weigh 51kg (114 pounds). You are actually a good weight because weight depends on height. Also, a lot of your weight may be muscle which ways more than fat. The average weight can range from 105-135. A few pounds over or under shouldn't worry you.
Remember that muscle weighs more than fat. Now if she actually is huge in size, that may be a problem. Usually, a girl should be a round 100-125. I don't think she is over weight. Nothing depends on the height of a person. If that was the case, then lots of people would be over weight because lots of people are tall. If you are still un sure, take her to get a check up and have a professional doctor take a look at her.
I'm about to be 13 in height I'm about 5'10 - 5'10 1/2 I weigh 203 pounds I'm fat but not as fat bas other people I know who are around 225 pounds. I need help trying to lose at least 50 pounds for this summer I have 77 days to do it. Is that realistic?
I'm 13 years old in height I'm about 5'10'' - 5'11'' and I weigh 195 I'm fat. I want to lose at least 40-50 pounds by the end of summer. I play in a lot of sports but can't lose weight. I feel like I can't reach my goal!!! Do you think I'm being realistic?
Umm.. No I don't think so
I'm 13 and I'm 5 ft..
And weigh 88 pounds.
But I do all of sports
cheerleading, dance, and tumbling.
I'm 13 and I weigh 80 Five foot one I have a six pack and still people call me fat. Just let her know if she exercises and eats healthy then shes not fat just help her eat healthy so she feels better
How sad that a barely into teen is thinking that about herself. That's early. Her weight would depend on so much. Family, body build, height, exercise, diet. If she is concerned I would sit with her with a nutritional book in front of us and work out a plan. More than anything right now, she needs to have someone to tell her that weight does not define a person, and if she is concerned, let it be for her health and not her beauty.At that age we go through so many, many changes leaving childhood and preparing for adulthood and those hormonal changes are not fun. Just keep reminding her of her spirit, how she treats others, and how she choose to accept neg or positive things others say to her.
What better time than now to tell her that she is more than her size, she is more than her looks. I hope things go well with you both.
I'm 5 4 in sports and weigh 127. I'm a 13 year old girl so trust me if shes over 5 ft shes fine. But if she plays sports you should know muscle weighs more then fat and if she has a bigger butt or chest that adds on 2.
I am 13 and I just started ballet and jazz I am wondering if I should lose weight. I am 5' 6" and weigh 115 lbs. I know that is probably a good weight for my height bu I know that ballerinas have to be thin and was wondering if the classes and eating healthier would bring down my weight a little bit or if I should try more.
Your daughter is totally not fat because it depends on how she feels.I just turned thirteen and I have always felt kind of out of place.I weigh around 120-130 I have no clue, but the point is that I just don't know what to do. My height is around 5'3 to 5'3 and a half but I still feel like my stomach is most of my fat. I have lost a lot of weight over the past few months probably from puberty but then I broke my toe and practically gained it all back.I play softball but thats about it and I eat healthier then most of the people I know but I think I eat TOO much of it. So can anyone help,I really just want to be happy with my body and feel confident...

Well I know someone who is a 13 years old girl who is 40kg and she seems to be a very healthy and sporty child.
Hope that answers your question!
Her proper weight not only on her age, but mostly her height, so how tall is she?
Your daughter is at a perfect weight for the age she is now she may think shes fat but she can tone her body and make muscles
It depends on your height. Maybe she thinks she is but it doesn't sound like it. How tall is she?
I am very very very tall. I am 5''5 and I weight 165 and my parents don't think I'm fat, but am I?
I am only 11.
I am thirteen, and am about 169 cm. I weigh 54 kg. I think that I'm really fat, but my friends tell me I'm not. I think it depends on how well you see your self.
I'm 13 and 5'6.5 and weigh 165 pounds. I think I'm fatter than almost all the kids my age. But I do suppose I have body image issues.
I'm turning 13 in like 3 months so I'm 12 and I weight 125 is that bad and I think I'm fat but my parents say I'm not please tell if there's something wrong with me
Find out her BMI, if its over 25, then she will need to loose weight. :) xx
I'm 13. I weigh 183 pounds I have rely bad low self-esteem nd every one makes fun of me... But how can I los It?
It all depends on her height? And every person carries their weight differently. I think it shouldn't matter what the numbers read on the scale just how she feels and looks
I'm 13 and I weigh 126 when I weighed 129 I was obese, you should take her 2 a dr. And ask
I'm 13 now and it seems like my muscles are the only thing along with a little fat bothering me and my stomach family tell me that I'm a little on the chubby side but I don't believe that what do you think?
I am turning 13 soon people say I am not fat but I fell fat at the height of 5foot 3 inches and weighing 124 pounds am I big for my age
I am 13 and I weigh 102.. I lost a lot of weight ,but still feel heavy :( .. Before I was 145
Well I'm 13 years old and weight like 137 is that ok cause I feel like I need to get skinny :(
It depends on how tall she is and thats about the right weight for teenage girls. Also just tell her to eat fruits and vegetable's. Keep this in mind its not a diet its a lifestyle choice good luck just eat healthy!!!
Well my daughter is 13 and she weighs 160. But she doesn't look it so if she ways 117 she is not Fat.
She is not fat she is perfect weight for her age and depending on how tall she is she might look super super skinny so it kinda depends on her height
I'm 5'4 and I weigh 120- 130 lb. Is this too fat or not? My BMI is 20.6- 24.1
I am 13 and I am under weight I only weigh 80 pounds and I am a girl, my height is 5'2.
No because she should at least be 125 thats normal for a 13 teen year old. And whoever put that is crazy.
I am almost 13 and I am 123 and 5 ft and 4 1/2 inches is that ok?
About 100-120 if you are a small short girl then about 85-110 any one higher then 125 if your 13 should be a lil over weight
I'm 13 and I'm 5'2 tall only. Weighing 110 pounds. I don't look fat but my weight is really heavy though -,-
I do not think she is overwieght, I have friends that are 12 and even heavier than that, my 10 year old sister is heavier than me and I'm 101 pounds!
Well I am 13 and I am 5 ft and 115 lbs. Is that fat ?
Man I wish I was 117 pounds, I'm 13 1/2 and thats the ideal weight
I'm 13 and I am 5ft 2in and I am 118 pounds...is that ok? Most girls that I know are skinnier than me, so I was just wondering.
She is skinny I'm 12 and weigh 125 pounds and my sis weighs 179 pounds and is 13 how do you think we feel! She is at a good weight for her age!
I am 13, I weigh around 130..I am into soccer and basketball..I'm pretty much outside everyday in the summer and in winter I walk...is this goOd?? HELP!
I'm 13 and I weigh 117 too! I lost a lot of FAT... And I used to weigh 120... Tell her that muscle ways much much more than fat and that I'm not fat at all. :)
That depends on her height and muscle. Either way, if she eats right and exercizes then she will be fine.
That is the normal weight for a 13 year old so she should't worry at all.
I myself weigh 147 pounds but what matters is that you are doing excercices and eating well or if you weigh more you could have muscle's because those and your butt weigh some more than your usual weight:D
Your actually at great weight because your 13 and you should be around there . I am 13 and I wiegh 122 , I am actually tryin to loose some weight :[
I'm 13 years old. I'm 4'10. I weigh almost 90 pounds.
But I do a lot of cheerleading, sports, and tumbing.
I'm 13 and weigh 145 lbs. Imma guy and I'm all muscle. I have a six pack and workout every day. I drink protein which helps gain muscles and it helps gain weight. I'm doing it all for football. :)
Look it depends on her height and muscle weighs more than fat so its probly muscle and just a lil bit of fat which is fine don't worry unless she is really over weight but over all she is still growing she is still going throug h changes
I'm 13 years old and I'm 1.63 and I'm 43 kg and I play basktball it helpes a lot to grow up REALLY FAST and to be really healthy
Well I'm 13 years old I weigh 167 pounds. I am really not happy about it..and I am VERY self cautious..I hate the way I look..I hate the way I feel about my self..I sometimes get made fun of because of my weight..and usually I don't mind it. I am in a lot of sports and I am always out side messing around with friends and having fun..never ever inside sitting down and eating like a lot of teens. I just really want to know how to lose my weight..my school nurse says I have some kind of ''mark'' that means I might get/have diabetes..its a scary thing. I just need answers before its too late. And if it is..I would still like to try to lose weight. =[[
What amazes me is how many replies there are to this topic. It shows how much it matters and how important it is to teenagers. I am 14 and 5 and a half ft and there is nothing wrong with me, I have a small frame. But there could be some other girl who is 92 pounds and 14 years old and is the same height and has a real weight issue. I would say that if your girl is active she is doing just fine. Remember that muscle weighs more than fat (I learnt that the hard way after 11 years of gymnastics and still going!) and talk to her about self esteem and feeling good and how it doesnt matter that much. Help her feel good about herself.
A boy about 5,5 should weigh about 95-135
Around a 100 pound I would think
Well I am 5-2'' and wiegh around 110-115 I'm also 13
I weigh 114.5 pounds am I over weight
I am 13 I weight 127, and I am 5f3i
It depends on your height and your bodys bone structure.
I use to weigh 129lb but I stop eating a lot .then the week I weighed 122 lbs . (normal weigh ill say um... 100-135 lb for girls) you can still eat brastfast ,lunch ,dinner and supper but eat little bit.
A 13 year old girl, with the height of 5'5 is supposed to be 75-120lbs, but then everyone is different because muscle weight also add's to body mass as well
Up to 18 years of age, kids should have balance wight and height according to age. According to international, a 13 years old girl should have a height of 5 feet and 1 inch an her weight should be 102 lb. If her height is 5 feet and 3 inches then a weight of 117 lb is normal.
Maybe you need to lose weight.
How tall are you? The average 12 year old is 5 feet and 100 lbs. But that is not everyone.
I'm 13 years old and I weigh around 150 between there I like go mess around and have fun so I don't know but if your 5"2 your suppose to weigh like 130-120 between there
It depends upon gender and height. If you are boy then your height should be 61 1/2 inches and weight should be 45 Kg. If you are girl then your height should be 61.34 inches and weight should be 46 Kg
8000 pounds because your fat
