Ok so, I'm a girl and I weigh 130, and my height is 5'3. I was wondering what the average weight is for my height. I'm just worried about this because I'm starting a sport this year, and I don't want to be over-weight for my sport. Can anyone give me answers? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.




  1. Yes.

  2. Here is a link to a chart that lists height against weight:

    This should help you.

    If you want to calculate your BMI, you can find calculator of following sites:

  3. The research is still being done. The old models for height and weight don't apply now. A word of advice--- Worry more about your performance. A good guide to go by is to be able to run 2 miles in 16 mins or below be able to do 30 or more pushups in 2 mins and 70 or more situps in 2 mins. If you can't do this yet don't worry, as you train and get more fit your body will tell you what it needs to do to get there and you will either get "Bigger" by gaining more muscle or "leaner" But the bottom line you will be an athlete and able to perform flawlessly. So set your goals and aim for them.

    Good Luck

  4. If you know the definition of the word average, and you are aware that the average person in this country is overweight to the point of having poor health, then you also know that the last thing you want is to be the average weight.

    The optimum weight for a long and healthy life has been researched and published according to body mass index (BMI). For your stature, it is 118 to 124; 135 is the maximum healthy weight for that stature. Since you are probably still growing, your weight looks to be just fine.

  5. hmmm I know for a guy 5'3 is 125-140... so for a female i think it should be about 105-120?

    i'm 5'3 so i know my weight limit and im overweight too tsktsk..

  6. your height, your weight is perfect.  You will not be over weight.  in fact, once you start the sport, you will end up losing weight.   PLEASE... i wish all you SKINNY people would quit saying you are FAT...

    try being 5'3" and weighing over 250 pounds,  then come on  here and want a diet.
