You can download a chart from www.cdc.gov/growthcharts to follow this issue.Select the height for age and percentile that falls along and select the same percentile position for weight to see the expected weight. For a 5'3" 16 yo the weight is 114.

What is the average weight for a 16 year old female in kgs? 6.5 in heigh. I would really appreciate your answer! Thank you

There's a range

Women
Remember that "average" weight and healthy weight may be two different things.In places where people are undernourished or obese, the "average" weight may not be healthy! Instead of aiming for a specific weight, look at your BMI range. You can check the BMI calculator http://nhlbisupport.com/bmi to see if you are in a healthy range, though it's not as accurate for very muscular people.

What is the average weight of a 16 year old female?

Wow!Almost anything!

There's huge variation of normal sizes for a 16 yr old--all genetically predetermined, although nutrition can influence this. Go to the website "www.cdc.gov"; type "growth charts" in the search box in the right upper corner of this webpage; click thru the menus then select the appropriate age chart for girls. The "average" weight could be considered the 50th %tile; but "normal" is 5th-85th %tile.

I was wondering what the average weight would be for a 16 year old female?

Depends on..

Women
Since 16 year olds are not entirely to adult full growth, an "ideal weight" depends on several differnt factors, including race, height, parental stature, pubertal development, etc. Worry more about an ideal BMI (body mass index), that plot out weight based on height and sex. See the CDC site or other on-line sites to figure and interpret body mass index.

Depends on height

It depends on the height. Take a look at: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.htm This allows you to calculate the BMI.

What is a healthy amount of weight to lose for a 16 year old female? I've just recently turned 16 and have struggled with my weight for years. I would assume I weigh around 155-160 and I am 5'4". I would like to lose 20-25 lbs by the middle of March. Is t

For

For your height a healthy weight is about 140-145, therefore you probably need to lose about 10-15 pounds. A healthy way to lose weight is by adopting a healthy lifestyle. This would include exercise for at least 30 minutes 5 days a week, more if possible. Weight training is key. Also a healthy diet. Eats six small meals a day. Your plate should be half veggies (green if possible) 1/4 lean meat, and 1/4 whole grains (i.e brown rice). If you need additional help or a plan to follow, request a visit with a nutritionist; your pediatrician or family doctor can refer you. Good luck

I am a 16 year old female. I am very active and I want to calculate my BMI but for a highly active teenager. Height: 5.6" Weight: 155 Age: 16 years ol?

Fair

Women
Your BMI is 25 kg/m2 and considered slightly overweight. However it is more important to measure the waist line size which should be much less than 35 inch in a female of your age. Do note that if you are somewhat muscular, the BMI may well be normal.
