!!!!!  People are less likely to say much about weight loss and someone as young as yourself, because there is danger of Anorexia.  The weight loss you're talking about sounds like you're crossing into the area of Anorexia.  I have heard about the trend with young people, especially girls, thinking that Anorexia is a "cool" or "in" thing.  Well, it isn't.  People die from this mental illness.

Please, concentrate on being fit and healthy.  When you exercise, do not do it in excess, but do not be a couch potato either.  Go with moderation and go with an activity you actually enjoy.  Do not become Obsessive/Compulsive about exercise or weight loss.

You are at a good weight and it's even fine to weigh a little more if you are of average height for a girl.  Your body is adjusting itself to maturing into a woman, so if you haven't started menstruation yet, you will soon.  And, it is normal to begin to add a bit of weight when that time of the month hits.  Just take it easy and don't obsess about it.  Too many young girls are doing this and it kills.  They obviously do this because of peer pressure and wanting to fit in.  There is nothing cool about "friend" who pressure you into being so skinny that you get sick and die.  There is nothing cool about the popular kids pressuring the less popular kids into doing this.  You know what usually happens when the less popular kids try to fit in with the popular kids in an effort to be accepted?  The popular kids usually find some other reason not to accept the person they've singled out as uncool and unacceptable.  Is it worth risking your life for a group of people who people who won't care one way or the other?  Let me tell you, I was the one who got singled out the entire 12 years of public school.  By the time I was in high school I did the one thing that the popular kids probably hated the most--I rejected their theories and thought for myself.  After all, if they weren't going to accept me even still, I reasoned to myself, why shouldn't I just do my own thing and forget about those snots?

Just concentrate on being healthy and don't obsess.

I have to be honest. You really shouldnt be concerned at this age about your weight. 118lbs is fine.  If you dwell on what you look like you will only start obsessing over it and end up with an eating disorder if you dont already have one. Be happy with who you are and love life. Dont waste it on self image.

I am a recovering Bulimic and I understand how you feel but I wish I could take back the years I wasted thinking about being skinnier. It really doesnt matter in the end.

I so agree with the 2 ladies before me.  I would add that it's NOT about numbers on the scale.  You say You are thin now but You want to weigh 108 - You are making this about the numbers You see on the scale and I think that is a red flag for an eating disorder.  Please heed the words above and be aware and BEWARE.
