    I've been searching around trying to figure out if this is considered skinny or not. According to most health charts I've seen it is but people's personal opinions seem to vary. I'm at this height and weight right now and i think i'm relatively thin but could still lose more weight. I wear a size 6-8, usually a size 8 in jeans since my hips are pretty wide. I'm 16 and female.

    It is just under ideal weight BMI wise.
    The ideal weight for a female of your height is 49-60Kg. However this does not take into account your age. In my opinion, no you are perfect weight.
    I hope this helps

    Slim but not too skinny, plus you're only 16 so I'd say just right

    I would say relatively skinny, I'm just 5"0 but weigh around 43kg the last time I checked. I'm average weight though.

    I'd recommend putting on maybe a couple kgs, because you're underweight. And the fact you've mentioned you could "lose more weight" is a bit worrying, though maybe I'm hyper-analysing. At your age, try not to worry about weight and appearances though! Take it from me, it's not something worth obsessing or worrying over.

    i think its average or towards lower size. it depends on where your body holds the weight, not the weight itself

    I'm 5'8 and 48kg and I consider myself borderline too skinny! Don't lose anymore weight, your bones will start to show and that's not healthy!

    You'd rather have a healthy slim body than an unhealthy skinny boney one. I'd care more about my health than my appearance, it leads to a happy life. Be confident in the body you're in now and love it ! ❤️👌🏼

    Why do you want to anyhow?

    Omw! I’m 4’11 and 69kgs and a 14/16 so don’t worry. Eat a cheeseburger and try not to worry. We are all different, fat thin average. Don’t worry about labels my love, the big wide world has things that need your attention much more than a few lbs here and there. X

    I don't understand the relevance of your technical obesity and likely artery related early death to the OP's question to be honest.

    Her BMI falls within the healthy range, that doesn't mean she should start stuffing her face with junk food.... sounds like she's doing things perfectly already.

    Actually you are considered 'healthy weight' according to the NHS calculator, which takes into consideration your gender and age. Only just within that range though, and you definitely don't need to lose any more weight. I've just filled it in for you.

    Seems like you are doing things just fine as you are, no need to adapt your diet or lifestyle.

    May want to do it with your exact date of birth (using the link I posted above).

    I had to work out KG to stone. Why did you post such a strange combination of Imperial and Metric?

    Anyway, yes you sound thin. You shouldn't try to lose any more weight, just eat healthy and keep active is all. Don't rely on health charts or the opinions of people around you. If you're eating right and living a healthy lifestyle, your body will settle on the right weight for you.

    Body confidence doesn't come from having the 'perfect' body though, it's about being confident in the one your in right now. You would look better in your opinion, but others may not see it that way. Just make sure your putting your health first !

    Why are you assuming that the op was body conscious or concerned with aesthetics?

    She mentions 'health charts' in her original post, and was happy to discover that her BMI is in the healthy range.

    And people who are overweight should not just settle for being happy in their body, they should lose some bloody weight before they develop diabetes or a heart murmer or anything else which is likely to cost the taxpayer a lot of money and shorten their lives. Fed up with seeing people tell the morbidly obese to be happy with their body, its like telling a chain smoker to be happy being a smoker.

    Either your BMI is in healthy range or it isn't. Celebrate those who are healthy, but encouraging unhealthy people to be "body confident" is just ludicrous.

    Strange logic that comes from extreme third wave feminists, people who are unhappy in their own bodies so want as many other girls as possible to be as fat and lazy as them. That what it really means to tell somebody who is killing themselves with greasy junk food to just 'accept' their bodies.

    You're slim not skinny.
    There's no need to consider losing weight when you're healthy and happy with the way you look.

    I'm female, size 8 with broad shoulders and hips.
    5'1 tall and weigh 45kg.
    My weight and height are the same as when I was 13.

    My best friend is an asian model, 5'4 weighing 54kg.
    Size zero tops, size 2 jeans and wearing size 13 shoes from the children's range.
