Generally speaking, at the average height of around 5 ft, or 152 cm, the healthy weight of a girl at the age of 12 should range between 80 and 110 pounds, or just over five and a half to a little under eight stone. This would equal approximately 36 to 50 kg.
This range of weights is so wide, because kids do tend to grow at varying rates. It is therefore possible for five 12 year old girls to all be of a different height.
In addition, the basic structure of their bones will also influence their actual weight. A girl with a very heavy bone set, for instance, will automatically be heavier than a girl with slender bones.
It becomes obvious how difficult it is to determine how much a girl should weigh at the age of 12, or any other age, for that matter.
The main thing to remember is that there is no such thing as a perfect weight. Not everyone can be perfectly skinny. At this age, being a little chubby may be as normal and healthy as being a little on the skinny side.
As long as the girl is fit and healthy, with plenty of exercise and a healthy, balanced diet, all is well. The 'diet' in this, by the way, refers to the general food intake.
A girl of this age should under no circumstances consider going onto a diet in order to lose weight, unless instructed to do so by medical professionals due to being dangerously overweight.
If extremely high or low weight do constitute a reason for concern, it is best to consult a doctor, who will be able to determine whether there is a problem, and if so, how best to proceed in order to correct it safely.
I think a great weight for girls who are 12, should be, 115-150..... I think this, because, at twelve you are still growing, and when you grow the weight will move around your body. Weight helps your bones grow, and is good for lots of things!!! Being to skinny could lead to a bad sickness. Being aroung 115-150, won't get you sick, and will help you when you grow, and you will look like a healthy person! Go for walks, or jogs, to get your blood moving! :) Get outside and move around! Eat all your green veggies, and fruit, and of course, steak, hamburgers ect, for iron! And dairy products for healthy bones! Have fun with your body, and keep it healthy!
I think a 12 year old girl should weigh about 95 to 160 pounds. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside but on the inside is what counts. Can any one do the flexed arm hang? I know I can't I have a fitness test tomorrow I have the shuttle run and the arm hang
It really matter's on your height. I'm 12 yrs old and I weigh about 100 pounds. I'm also about 5 feet. I would like to be about 90-95 though. If your a little shorter, than you might wonna be a little lighter, but if your a little taller, you might wonna be a little bigger. No offence to anyone in anyway. Just excerise, eat healthy and as long as your happy with yourself, that's all that matters.
Dude 400 pounds is obese for anyone. The average person should not weigh over 250 lbs when they are full grown. I think that 1. It depends on height and 2. At 12 everyone is growing, and is different, so anywhere from 70 - 160 is about healthy. Anywhere under 70 is too light, and over 160, well, hold up on the food and get some exercise.
There really is no correct answer to "how much should a twelve year old girl weigh?", it depends on your height.Ask your doctor, don't feel bad about what you weigh.Eat healthy, exercise and play sports to stay healthy.
It doesn't matter if a girl has meat on her bones, it's been proven that a lot of the hott, skinny girls in school grow up to be fat and a lot of the fatter/chubbier girls grow up to be hott models and all sorts.
First of all I don't want to be like skinny girl that could fit into a bikini an di don't think you other girls will want to. It don't matter how much you as long as your fine with how you look, look at me I am a 12 year girl and I weigh about 125- 135 pounds I am happy with the way I look and you should to.
It doesn't depend on age but on height as everyone is different heights so if you say 95 pounds and the 12 year old is really tall then that won't be a normal weight for someone who is tall. Measure her height and then ask again
I am 12 and I am not ashamed of how much I weigh bcause I could care less about what people say about me or think about me. That may not help you but that is what I tell myself evrey time I look in the mirrior. Anyway I wegh around 87-90 so to me the avvrage is about 90-120. Evreyone around me tells me I am the prettist girl they have ever met, evreyone at school likes me. Me and my friend rochelle countied 197 boys who like me in 6th grade. I guess what I am trying to say is being nice to evreyone even the people you don't like treat you the same not because your weght or looks.(its okay to not have an hour class shape of a body your not even a teenager yet) always take care of your body shower very offten, use deotorinte ect. And don't worry about your weight you can do anytyhing you put your mind to without stressing out over somrthing so worth whiled.over and out!
Setting aside all the contradicting theories and if you calculate the weight of a girl who is of twelve years of age, you will find that her weight should be around forty kilograms. The range in which her weight falls is between twenty-six to seventy kilograms.
As you have asked about the ideal weight it sounds a good idea to provide you information about her height also. The optimal height that she is expected to attain is around one hundred and fifty centimetres and the height also has its range in which it is expected to fall; the height ranges from 131 centimetres to 168 centimetres.
I can give you the address of a website also that you can use to calculate the ideal weight and height of somebody. The address is following: www.medindia.net.
I think it all depends on how tall you are and your genes I mean everyone is different and beautiful no matter what age or height there is not perfect weight for anyone. It's just a number and it doesn't define who you are
I'm 12 and weight 103 pounds. I weight as much as I do because of muscle. Muscles from sports ..etc. I think any where from 90-120 is a good weight. You can go online to a weight calculator and put in your height and weight and tell you how much body fat you have... I don't think a 12 year old should worry about there weight anyways.. God doesn't make mistakes.
I just turned 12 and I am 94 pounds when I look at my self I think I look fat. A girl in my year says she weighs about 63 pounds I don't think thats right.She is short but I'm only a few inches taller that her. Does this seem right. I don't think so.
I am 10 and I weight 105-110...I don't really look that fat but I am. I am about 4'7 and I play softball...I am outside a lot but I cannot loose weight...I eat like fast food once or twice a week,but I am going to like once every 2 weeks...All of my friends are like skinny and like leave me out of the group except my best friend named Bailey,she is like a little bigger then me but she's super nice. I just need to know how much I should weigh... If anyone has a answer for a young 10 year old 5th grader please send a message back. Thanks!
If they are about 5'0 feet tall then about 95 to 105 pounds if you are taller then you should weigh more if you don't then you are healthy but if you are taller and weigh about 85 pounds then you need to see a doctor now if you are shorter then 5'0 and 12 you should weigh about 90 to a 100 or less it depends how tall you are really.
I think 105 to 125 I am 12 and wiegh 115 to 120 I used to wiegh 125 and I was huge I lost a lot of weight like 11 pounds! My family will walk by me sometimes because they don't notice me because I lost so much and I am a cheerleader so most of mine is muscle to,but I also have stomach problems so yeah you don't have to starve your self to lose weight just exercise and eat heatheir I thought it wasnt going to work but after a week I lost some weight so yeah , thats my oppinion.
Wow you must be skinny because I'm 12 and a half and I weight 115 I don't look fat but I'm a little thick plus I'm very athlictic I'm into a lot of sports compared to many people in my class I'm an avergage weight I don't think you should really worry about you weight you are pretty skinny
I'm a 12 year old girl and I'm 4 7" I weigh about 75...I don't look skinny I'm just really short for a 7th grader..I think I'm pretty average so I would say typical weight for a 12 year old girl is 80 to 150.
Well I'm about 89 pounds and I'm 13. My friends tell me I'm Way to skinny. People make fun of me because I'm the skin nest person in 8th grade =( . But on my scale 125+ is over weight if you are 12 and about 200 ma bey you can cut down your snacks you eat and play outside if you never do..... (no offence) please don't take this personally.
