Stretch marks and weight
Posted on: 06/24/2008
what is the normal weight for a thirteen old girl about 5'1. and is it normal to have stretch marks all over her breasts? she does come from women being large breasted but not overweight women. Thank you.
You are right. Weight depends on many factors including your family's build and the overall distribution of the weight on the body. So it is difficult to say without meeting you and your family. I would be more concerned about your overall health, eating habits and activities. There are growth curves available that will give you an idea of the range of weight for a 13-year old girl (80-155 pounds, average of about 100 pounds), but you could talk to your doctor about what she feels would be about right for her.
