Is this "normal"?!?!?!?!?

My daughter is twelve years old, has been playing volley ball for at least 8 hours a week, and walks regularly. She is 5'3 and weighs 104. Is she overweight?

    I'm 12, I take competitive swimming,I'm 5'2 but 85 pounds.Being 104 pounds is not overweight,shes average.Muscles can weigh a bit so mabey thats why she seems a bit heavy.You also need to add the weight of her bones.She my seem heavy compared to me but people say that I should eat more, so she really is normal.And judging by the way you talk about her she sounds really healthy.You should be proud. (:D)

    Hope I helped.

    I looked at your other questions... looks like YOU are the 12-year-old! At any rate, you sound like you are in excellent physical shape, very healthy and not one bit overweight. Muscle weighs a lot more than fat. Don't worry about the scale. Pay more attention to how your clothes fit.

    You must remember that muscle (which she probably has a fair bit of as she's quite active) is far heavier than fat. She sounds fine to me and at her age I wouldn't worry about whether she was overweight or not (or even mention it to her). The last thing you want is for her to get a complex and go the other way. Accept her for who she is as she is still developing and has a long way to go yet before she's considered an adult.

    No, you dumbass. Girls aren't supposed to be f'n waif models (especially your 12 year old daughter, you friggin' jackass). My motto for those f'n toothpicks is "Eat a sandwich". And don't you DARE try to tell her that she's fat. She'll have deep ceded issues for the rest of her life and will probably resent you twice as much. Who the f**k would let a superficial, selfish person like you become a parent? Merry Christmas. Make sure she eats good today.

    No. Probably has a lot of muscle mass. This weighs heavier then fat. Sounds very athletic.

    She sounds like she's doing a great job, and if you tell her any different, you don't deserve her.
