It's not the size: It's not the size that matters. A teen would have seen her pediatrician annually, and the doctor would have checked her breasts for proper development. A girl is ok if her breasts, pubic hair, and genitals matured properly (breast size is not what we look for but rather the changes in the nipples), especially if periods are regular. The doctor can re-examine and do some blood tests, if worried.

Ht, Wt, BMI: Your ht is at 75th %ile, wt at 4th %ile and your BMI is at 1st %ile. You are in other words considerably underweight. That may well affect your pubertal development. I don't know if you have had your first menses yet but you should examine what you eat and try to eat a richer diet than what you are presently do. You might get a peds endocrinology workup too.

Agree. A teen girl at 100 lbs is usually only 5 feet tall. A teen girl 5 feet 6 inches tall usually weighs 125-140 pounds.

Is having a guilty conscious about food a healthy way to lose weight?

Dr. Pamela Pappas

No: A guilty conscience about food is not a healthy way to lose weight. Healthy food nourishes your body and keeps it running well. Emotional problems can sometimes confuse and complicate the process of eating, though. For instance, some with binge eating disorder suffer guilt about food. See your physician if you're concerned about your weight or your feelings about food.

Dr. Quang Nguyen
Specializes in Endocrinology
Yes: The answer depends on your baseline weight but in general a pace of 0.5-2 lbs/week is acceptable and achievable. The most important thing is how you are doing this. Make sure you stick to a program that you know you can maintain lifelong instead of falling for the fad diets/regimen. Good luck to you.
