*My friend wanted me to ask this question*: If she is 5'7, and weighs 145 lbs, is that healthy at (almost) 13?

My friend is younger than me, (she's 12), and she is REALLY tall at 5'7 for her age, and she weighs 145 lbs but looks slender, and she can wear a bikini. She eats really healthy and she loves to swim all the time like me. She also enjoys track and field, and runs long distances almost every day. I told her not to worry about it, but she is self-conscious sometimes about her body. Any suggestions would be helpful to her :)

It's only a healthy size if she keeps eating healthy and exercising.

Your friend sounds beautiful and wonderfully healthy. That is not a disproportionate weight for her taller height.
I commend her for leading a healthy and active lifestyle compared to a lot of our youth and even adults today.
One thing for your friend needs to keep in mind is that muscle weighs more than fat. Since your friend is really active in a lot of sports that build muscle, such as swimming and running long distances, and track and field, her weight may appear to be higher due to the muscle mass. This does not mean she's too fat, it means that she is wonderfully fit. Bravo to your friend!!
