Weight is 47?: It depends on your "frame" size, but height and weight charts are all over the internet. These give recommendations, but differ for each person based in age and level of activity as well. http://www.healthchecksystems.com/heightweightchart.htm.

No: If you are only 47 pounds you are severely underweight.
