    Skinny is ok for a teenager,we have too many activities that burn many calories,once you become a little older,you will start having more curves and you will be there,where you want to be now.

    There's no such thing as too skinny for a teenager unless you have an eating disorder and are not eating a healthy diet. If you're active, and it's your body type, you'll be thin. here's the problem - women now tend to think that they should stay the same weight and size that they were at 16. That's unnatural. The body is intended to get rounder, with wider hips for the child bearing years. Starving themselves to look like an adolescent girl is unhealthy and frustrating.

    There are plenty of online BMI calculators. Your doctor should also tell you where you are on the curve at each yearly visit.

    You should also be able to tell. Can you see your ribs?
