That is ... (digging out the chart)
A height of 5'6'' is upper average for your age. about 75% of all girls (worldwide) that are 15 are shorter than you.
And in the weight curve it says that 97% of all girls (worldwide) of your age are heavier than you.
I'd say, gain weight, ma'am. And If you can't, then go to a doc and get help. This is not healthy.
Depends on your weight and height for us to determine how underweight you are.
BMI only calculates for the average person (one who exercises 1-2 days a week), so if you exercise a lot, then don't pay much attention to BMI. Unless of course you're not eating enough food.
Have no fear of gaining weight! Now, BMI is not the most accurate, as it says I am overweight but it is not taking into account I work out 6 days a week. You may be fine, but without an educated person telling you so, you should discuss this with your parents.
I'm actually currently in the exact same situation as you. Haha, I weight and am the same height. I had to gain tons of weight to get to 98. Yes definitely underweight, you should definitely gain.
No because I have an overweight friend who is in a psych ward for anorexia. And a girl I work with is extremely underweight but eats 5 times more than me.
You are ~20lb. underweight, miss. You should try to gain weight, at least until you get to 115-125lb. At 98lb., you are as Connor said, anorexic. :\
Of course I know that, but from what I've read you're clinically diagnosed as anorexic when you hit a certain BMI. Not sure if that's true or not.
wow....you must be one heck of a skinny person ;) I hope you calculated wrong...if not..go eat some donuts :).
Dangerously so. As in, classified as anorexic dangerous. Underweight is <18.5.
There is more to anorexia than a low bmi but yeah its really low.
I'm 5'6" and weigh 98 pounds. And I'm 15.
Ooooh. Ick. Thanks!
Your welcome. :)
