My daughter is 120lbs and 5"4, she is always worried about her weight! She has weighed less and gained a little over,vacation. She wants to lose it and be 114lbs in 2 weeks. Her,goal is to,weigh 105lbs. Is this healthy?
From your measurements her weight is just below the 75th percentile and height is just over the 50th percentile for her age. She is not overweight, in fact very normal weight/height for her age. 105lbs is too underweight for her height. She is still growing and needs not to lose weight. Thank you for your question.
