The more important thing at this point is - are you at a healthy weight for your age and are you healthy in general?? You may lose some weight as you get older and continue to grow taller. Trying to diet or lose weight too quickly, too early can result in actually slowing your growth, and you may not reach your full potential! If you have concerns about your weight, talk to your doctor. He or she will know best what is a healthy weight for you!
