This thing is screwy. I put in that I was a 5'9 15 year old boy that weight 90 pounds and it said that was normal. I'd be sectioned and force fed if I actually weighed that much! This thing is VERY inaccurate.

Selena0612, dont worry about it. You are just slightly taller than most people, but thats ok, because we all grow at our own rate. You aren't too tall, others are just shorter than you because they havent hit their growth spurt. Soon, they will be as tall as you and you will be an average height. Its ok, you'll be fine.

Hi, I am a 10 year old girl in grade 5.My weight is 99 lbs [44 kg] I don't worry about that because I am not over weight but I maybe am underweight. My main problem is my height. My height is 5'1 ( the last time I checked, maybe now 5'2). I need help because I am too tall for my age. Thanks

Hi I am an 11 year old girl and I have a height of 5 ft and 2 inches . I weigh 119 lbs. My family says I have gone thin. But I still think I am overweight. Also I think I am too tall and in school due to the fact that I am taller than children who are older than me. So could you help me ?
