your GP will have more specialist knowledge than most people on TSR. they'll also be able to examine you, calculate your waist:hip ratio, BMI, your diet etc. and of course we cant see you so we cant determine whether you need to lose weight or not. im not an expert but to me, 47kg at 5ft4 seems perfectly fine, i know lots of ppl with the same weight and height and they seem healthy and not fat to me

It's extremely unlikely that you are fat and need to lose weight when you are close to the bottom end of a healthy weight for your height and age.

You're 14 and probably mid-puberty. Chances are that your mental image of yourself hasn't adjusted to being a more adult shape yet. Not being a straight line like a ten year old any more doesn't mean you're fat. If you are genuinely unable to appreciate that you can't both be fat and be at the lower end of healthy weight for your height, or if what you think looks fat is something that's out of proportion with the rest of you (for instance your stomach is very swollen compared to all the rest of you), then go see your doctor.

You are 13 and healthy, but have disordered eating, think you are fat and want to lose weight. That's not a good thing and needs to be addressed
