Is 55kg and 5'3 overweight?

So I asked a question a few days ago asking if I looked overweight and a picture of me was included. One girl responded saying Yes you are extremely overweight. You should be about 110 pounds. I can tell because of these size and lack of definition in your calves. For one, I have extremely defined calves and they are almost entirely muscle with a 1/4 inch of fat near the hamstring. I'm 15 and recovering from anorexia. I'm still growing. So I argued back. And she made me feel like sh*t about my body and I starved myself for a day until I realized it wouldn't get me anywhere. So who was right, me or her?

  • She is 100 percent right and you should lose weight.

  • I'm 5'3 and in just 52kg. According to BMI I would be overweight if I'm over 64kg. I'd be underweight if I'm under 47kg. So practically I'm in the normal weight just like you. But BMI doesn't really tell a lot. If you wanna know you're really overweight you have to know your body fat %. Usually I'm a 17 with 54% muscle mass. For girls its reasonable if your body fat is over 20%. If possible, can you post a pic of you again? I believe you are definitely not overweight. We have the same height, so same BMI.

  • 5'3 and 55kg gives a BMI range of 21.5 well within the reccomended normal range. Some girls think you have to be 18 which is BS.

  • Why do you ask questions like this if you can't take negative critique? If you starve yourself for a complete stranger on the Internet you shouldn't be here in the first place...

  • depends on your build. I had a ex who was 5'3 and only 50kg and she was terrified to gain any more weight than that. She had C cups, a booty and muscular legs. But her shoulder were only 15 inches across. So i think you are okay at 55kg.

    • so would I have a small or medium build?

    • @asker well I would assume you have a small build.

  • That's fine, don't worry about it.

  • No way!! For your age and height 55kg is on the skinnier side of normal. Your body sounds not only fine, but desirable!
    by the way i suffered from anorexia when i was younger as well- well done on coming this far! You should be extremely proud of yourself, you are so strong and beautiful and dont let anyone make you feel otherwise x

  • You're BMI is 21,4 which means your a totally normal and healthy weight - truth about the internet is, there are always gonna be haters (mostly hiding behind anon) who wanna make you feel low, the key is just not listen to them ;)
