Is 140 pounds too much for a 5"8 teenage girl?

Most girls at my school are like 100 pounds so I was wondering if 140 is too much since I'm taller then most of them anyway or if I should loose like 20 pounds

  • No, most female athletes that height are in that weight range.

  • Taller people always weight more. Plus weight doesn't necessarily correlate with skinnyness. I'm 130lbs at 5"4. But people always think I'm skinny and tiny... Also I'm actually skinnier than some of my friends but heavier than them. So yea...

  • I think that's fine. Losing some won't hurt though.
