You aren't fat in the slightest, I'm a guy and the same height, but weigh 25 more pounds than you. If anything, you are under weight.

Don't guys weigh more? Don't guys like skinny girls better?
Report as
Men naturally have greater muscle mass than women have.
Report as
Also if a guy expresses interest in you only because he thinks you are attractive and not because of your intellect, personality , ect. he is shallow and not worth your time.

There is no age to weight chart. If you look on the Height to Weight Chart you'll see that you're skinny

Check the average weight chart.. Google it.
Report as
No, I don't have to. I think I weighed around that much when I was her height and I was healthy. Nowhere near anorexic.
Report as
Actually? This is what I am fearing... What I see in the mirror is ugliness, and fat. It is not very often I look in the mirror and think i look beautiful.
Report as
Okay, that ATTITUDE is definitely borderline anorexia.. The weight itself doesn't indicate that. You are not fat, not even close. You weigh exactly as much as you should. You should see a therapist to address this issue. I wouldn't want this sort of thing to get out of hand.

Based on frame size 120 to 159 lbs is normal.
Here's the link. http://www.healthdiscovery.net/links/calculators/ideal_bw_women.htm
Report as
That is a calculator for women, not teens. Kids and teens tend to weigh less than adults. People tend to look better and healthier when they're skinny as kids, but as adults they fill out a little bit (and it looks better that way too). It is normal to be skinny when you're young.

I know I have to. I told a teacher before about my depression and they told the counsellor. I want to tell them about this but my parents can't find out. They no nothing and I don't want to upset them. They are mad at me right now. I want to tell my teacher about this and that I self harmed myself...
Report as
there are anonymous places you can call. a few even have email communication.
even at my age I have issues with my parents, they over react because they care. and really, they are the best resource for help.
it does sound as though you need to see a psychologist, someone to talk to who is there for you. I had my grandmother, do you have an adult relative? aunt, cousin... who you can confide in? your school counselor or nurse should be able to point you towards resources in your area. I know I'm rambling in my thoughts, but I'm getting them out as they come to me.
Report as
your teacher needs to be told again, or tell another adult who will help you.
Report as
I don't have any grandparents. They all passed away- I never met two of them and hardly knew the other two. Half my family lives in a different province and the other lives like 1.5 hours away. I am not close to any family members...
Report as
what about the mother of a close friend? if you don't have anyone else, you should try with your parents. as I stated before, they may over react but it does come from a place of caring. the fact that you know you need help is a good sign. I have found that my father is an excellent friend. like many men, he looks at facts and thinks rather than react. maybe talk to him first.
Report as
Yeah... But I am so shy with my health. I know this is terrible, but if I thought I had cancer I couldn't tell anyone. My parents are mad at me because I spend so much time alone. I don't want to disappoint them. They don't want a child with all these issues.
Report as
everyone has issues, even adults. and please understand that NO ONE, I repeat NO ONE is perfect. you need to stop adding these extra pressures on yourself, growing up and learning about who you are is hard enough without comparing yourself to an ideal that doesn't exist.
please know that you are perfect just the way you are.

it sounds like you are trying to control your weight because it's the only thing you think you can control. it's not. and I say again, talk with your Dad. then talk with them both. the longer you wait to talk with them the harder it will be.
Report as
Thank you for your help :)

:( it is just getting worse. I can't talk to them :( I just can't. I need the teacher but try would tell my parents. I am so sad and alone right now :(

Everyone is built differently and bone structure is something you cannot change. Plus, that combined with your height is what really matters. There is no magic or ideal number. It really does depend on the person.

If you check an online calculator for Body Mass Index (BMI), you can see that you are a little bit... underweight:
http://www.gbhealthwatch.com/BMI_calculator.php

Of course BMI calculators are just a basic starting point, but it gives you a general idea. (GB HealthWatch will soon be launching a more comprehensive 'BMI questionnaire'; stay tuned).

I know some of these products sound sketchy. They do work though, I know from experience. You do have to eat better and exercise though. I always check with http://spiffyreview.com/category/weight-loss-diet-plans/ before I try anything or spend any money on weight loss or diet products, it's a review site of all kind of products.
