Look at wt for ht: The average weight of the entire nation and western world has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. What might be more useful would be what a healthy weight would be.

For a 12-year-old: female, a height of 62" is 75th%ile; a weight of 75th%ile is 110 lbs. However, a BMI in the 25th-75th %ile range is normal. Calculate this at http://nccd.cdc.gov/dnpabmi/calculator.aspx. The result is accompanied by a statement that says whether her BMI is in the underweight, normal, overweight or obese range. Seek medical attention accordingly.
