What is a healthy weight for me? I am 4 feet and 10 inches tall, 15 years old, female and I weigh 154 pounds.

A

A healthy weight depends on many factors. One is your body frame. Some people have very small body frames and others have larger frames (skeletons). It also depends on whether you are an athlete as muscle weighs more than fat. As we are growing, which you are still likely doing, our weight changes dramatically as well. The best thing is to see a nutritionist or talk to your doctor, they can discuss a healthy diet with you. Try to avoid any sugary drinks, and don't have fast food more than once or twice a month if at all. Snack on fresh fruit or veggies, and learn to make smoothies in a blender with fresh fruit, ice, and yogurt. Find an exercise you really like such as jogging, basketball, tennis, etc. It is easier if someone will do it with you, a friend or a family member.

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

I want to go anorexic to lose weight doctors only please read entire thing. i am 14, female, 5 and one half feet tall and i weigh 170lbs. i want to lose weight fast so im going anorexic. how fast will i start to lose weight and how much will i lose in the

Anorexia

Anorexia is a dangerous medical condition that can lead to infertility, but most importantly can lead to death. It is not a healthy way to lose weight and will only make you sick. The end result is a long slow painful death. You are a young girl with lots of potential. With the right diet and exercise you can lose weight safe and effectively. You need to start by discussing this problem with your parent or guradian. You need to seek counseling to help you get through this difficult time. You should also see a nutritionist for a diet plan. Get active and join a gym or play on a sports team. There are so many things you can do. Do not become a statistic and end up caught in the horrible condition that is anorexia. I wish you the very best. Be strong and get some help.

What is average healthy weight for a 5 foot 10 inch female of middle age?

150lbs

Female
For women: An easy formula to use for determining a healthy weight range based on height: Calculate 100 lbs for the first 5 ft. then add 5 lbs for every inch over 5 ft. So 100 + 30 = 130. Give or take 10% depending on the size of your frame. Small frame: 117 lbs Med frame: 130 lbs Large frame: 143 lbs

What does this mean? I am female, 22 years old, 110 pounds and 5 feet 6 inches tall. I recently had a CT scan and it said this, "Follicular change is seen in the ovaries. There is fluid in the endometrial canal. There may be septate uterus. There is hypo-

Could be normal

Uterus
Follicles are what mature an egg prior to ovulation - these ebb and flow during every month, so that's normal. Fluid in the endometrial canal could also mean that you have ovulated and your uterine inner lining is becoming more friendly to welcome and nurture sperm. The divided uterus could be an issue, but most likely (if the report is not definitive) it should not affect your fertility.

I don't think you weigh just 6 pounds. A newborn baby may weigh that much but not a 5'2". Please double check your weight. Thank you.
