Talk to a doctor. There's a lot of factors, besides weight and height, that determine whether someone's overweight or not. I would say at 5'3", you might be overweight at 165lbs. You are also at the age where some girls naturally gain weight as a part of their growth. If you are concerned, definitely get advice from a doctor or nutritionist. Keep eating healthily, and try to get exercise too. 14 year olds I think are too young for diets (you could really hurt yourself) but people of all ages should eat healthy and exercise. Most importantly, if you have a healthy body image, or healthy goals, than it's all good.

You aren't over weight, but yes you are on the heavy side. (no offense) If you lost say 15 pounds or so you would be just fine. I am almost 5'1 and i weigh about 110. A 5'3 person should weigh about 125-130. So looking that that you aren't over weight as well. Also, i could mean u have really heavy bones. The best thing is consult the doctor. I used to be almost 120 and i cut down on soda, pizza, chips, chocolates- and did very little exercise. So if you taking in too much sweet that could be a reason. If you don't really want to cut down your eating habits you should probably engage yourself in 1.5 hours of exercise every other day. You should jog on the treadmill on a slow, steady pace, but for a long time- because that rhythm helps you lose fat. Also, try sit-ups/crunches or even cycling. Visit the aol.com fitness page and see they have any exercises you might like. And, last, talk to your doctor! Don't do any diet plans before talking to a professional.
For your age I would say yes, but considering your height....My advice would be to look at yourself. If you have excessive fat that is noticeable as such then yes you probably are. However a size 9-10 is an indicator that you probably are a little too big.
im sorry to say this but you bmi is over 25 which is kinda overweight.
Well, I don't think its all that bad. You could try to loose 15 pounds or so though. I'm fouteen and weigh 125.
it's hard to tell but my mom is 49, like 5'2" or something and weighs around 126 lbs.
yeah you need to lose some weight
im not bieng mean but as a health concern it might be best if you lose some weight
Your BMI is 30.1
* Underweight = <18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
* Overweight = 25-29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
well, your age has nothing to do with your wieght for one.
its based on your height and bone structure.
even if you have a "large frame," your still considered over wieght.
For the height of 5' 3" :
Small frame: 111-124 pounds
Medium frame: 121-135 lbs
Large frame: 131-147 lbs
