Why does my family say I am too skinny.

Origionally, because of stuff I take, I took it all the time and I was underweight. They told me I need to get meat on my bones. Some was just teasing, others was the truth. Now I am at least a pound overweight because of how I take it now, and I am still considerred underweight and they tell me I need meat on my bones. But 99.99% of other kids my age is this skinny. Now I am one of the heaviest kids out of my class before summer. Also it seemed to be when I grew my grades dropped. Is this a bad thing?And yes, I passed, and I'm not in summer school.

I'm guessing they say you're too skinny because they're too fat.

Ignore them. This will happen your whole life - people placing their problems on your shoulders.

A pound overweight? Do you really track your weight that closely? Your doctor is the best person to advise you about your weight as it relates to your age and height. Here's a web site where you can input data and be told what the healthy weight range is: pediatrics.about.com/cs/growthcharts2/l/bl_ibw_calc.htm - keep in mind it's just a range. Some variation is to be expected, which is why I asked about the concern about one pound.
