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.

According to her height, she has got weight fine. I think she does not need to lose.
