In brief: Probably fine

The concept of proper weight for height varies within many cultures.
Your weight of 14 st or 140 lb is at the upper end of the normal range by bmi criteria for age while 8.8st or 123 lb would be right in the middle. You can download a growth chart by age and gender from the cdc website and look at the variables for age. www.cdc.gov/growthcharts.
