If you haven't reached 18 yet, just work out, exercise and eat healthy. If you are 14, your body is probably going through a growth spurt and your frame is going to get a lot longer before you begin filling it out. I weighed 108lbs at 5'4" until I stopped wrestling during my senior year in High School. I put on 18lbs that year alone. The next year after High School I was weighing in at 125 to 130lbs.

Don't rush your body when it is still growing. Believe me, the weight will come. The sad part about it is that when you're 25, you are probably going to be going on about having to lose weight and you'll be reminiscing at the fact that you used to weigh so little.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

You probably won't settle into your natural "walk around weight" until around 23 to 25. Enjoy it while you can. Before you know it, you'll have the adverse problem because your metabolism takes a nosedive at around 25. What most younger people don't know is that it takes around 1800 to 2000 calories a day just to maintain your body temperature when you are in your teens.

Don't worry about being a little skinny or lanky at this point. Before you know it that will not be the case.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
