Ideal weight: Insurance tables for normal weights start at 100 lbs for the first 5 feet, then add 5 lbs per inch beyond 5 feet for females, or 7 lbs per inch for males. At 5 ft 7, your ideal weight if you are female should be 135, but 149 for a male. This is just one method for calculating a reference point for your information. You may want to look also at your body mass index. ...Read more

BMI 25.2: That height and weight would give you a BMI of 25.2 (just into the overweight category). 25-29.9 is considered overweight with anything over 30 considered to be obese. The BMI doesn't account for muscle mass, so if you are very athletic or a body builder then this wouldn't be an accurate assessment. I'd suggest a healthy lifestyle (whole clean foods and regular exercise and meditation) regardless ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sorry : Sorry to disagree with you. But you are not obese or overweight. If you are a girl at your height - 110 to 121 pounds is fine. If you are a boy it would be an even higher weight. You put "bariatric surgery" as the specialty. You don't need bariatric surgery. Honey, you are only 12 years old. You need to learn to love yourself for who you are and how your are. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You're fine!: 127 pounds is an ok weight for you! if you were an adult, we might say ideal weight for a 5'5" male would be closer to 135 to 140 pounds, but you are in a state of growth/transition. I don't really know what you mean by "skinny fat" though. Just keep focusing on lots of fruits and veggies, some protein (meat, fish, poultry, cheese, eggs) and complex carbs, not sweets. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
