    Well, you can find out the answer by calculating your BMI using this simple formula:

    BMI = ( Weight in Kilograms / ( Height in Meters ) x ( Height in Meters ) )

    In other words, Weight in Kg divided by (height in meters x height in meters)

    So, around 53 - 60 should be a good weight for a 14 year old girl who is 164 cm tall. The best would be 56, 57, or 58 kg.

    To loose weight, you have to burn the excess fat and energy in your body. You must have a high metabolism rate. It's quite simple really. You have to be active and eat moderately. Therefore, simply put, to loose weight, all you have to do is eat moderately and do some excercise. Don't be lazy. You don't have to make drastic changes however. You don't have to go to a gym or anything like that. All you need to do is refrain from unhealthy and fattening habits. For example, don't munch on fattening stuff when your watching TV, don't oversleep or lie down too much, walk instead of taking hte elevator and whatever else. Also, eat a big enough breakfast. You shouldn't Skip. Infact, don't EVER skip. It will cause your body to go into survival mode. That means, your metabolism will be lowered and you won't loose weight easily. Besides, you'll work up such a huge apetite that once it's lunch time you'll be as hungry as a wolf. You would then overeat and gain weight. Also, eat a smaller dinner. Try having soup or vegies and fruits for dinner.

    The important thing is that you are determined and disciplined. Also, don't torture yourself or go on any extreme diets. That's just bad for you.

    Lastly, if you're asking this question because you want to loose weight, good luck and all the best!

    This is all dependent on your body, NEVER go by the BMI chart, it something that the government set up. The best way to find out is have a body fat analysis test, this will tell how much fat is on your body by sending a small electric current through the body, the more fat there is the easier it is to travel through and it can therefore calculate the fat. Weight is different to everyone, some people have heavy bones, muscles weights a lot more than fat and there are many other factors. Plus you are still 14, you don't stop growing until around the age of 21. At 14 the body may sometimes store fat to aid in growing development so don't worry to much, as long as you eat healthy food.

    It is really hard to say what the average weight of a 14 year girl should be. Medical associations have published body mass indexes but due to the rapid growth in adolescences I think that variances in healthy weight are larger.

    Instead of looking at weight look at body fat.

    It should be a range. The first thing you need to do is to calculate the body mass index (BMI). to learn more about the BMI, please access this page: http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/bmi/childrens_BMI/...

    There are many "calculators" on the internet to find the BMI. The CDC has one especially for children and teenagers. You can access it at this link (you can choose the American or the metric system):

    164CM? I have no idea but you are 14 you should not be worrying about your wieght as long as you are healthy. Drink water, eat helathy and stay active. But you should not wieght less 95lbs than or more than 200lbs.

    Wiat so you are about 5'3? Then maybe your wieght should be no less than 78lbs and no more than 180lbs

    I'm your age, I'm like 170cm tall and weigh 54kg... but everyone is different. It depends on how you're built.
