I went to the doctor. Saw the scale. Freaked.
i'm 5'5 and I am 125 freaking pounds.
I know it's a healthy weight apparently and I feell horrible and stupid and self centered for freaking, but I really can't stop myself from hating the scale and me.
Any help/guidance here?

That IS normal. If you're really obsessed with losing some weight, eat healthier and exercise. Just don't develop any anxiety or eating disorders! :P.


you are beautiful the way you are, though :)

What RarelyJaded said ^
 
People are always concerned about how much they weigh, when they should really be concerned about how healthy they are.

look i'm 5'6" and 105 lbs. my BMI is a 16.9, which would mean that i'm severly underweight and need to see a doctor right away. but guess what? i feel healthy the way i am, there's no reason to base your sel off of averages. and don't let the media change the way you look:)

My BMI, last time I checked, was 11 maybe? I'm 5'2" and 100 lbs.
"healthy" includes all parts of you:)

No need to freak out. You're weight is perfectly normal.

Hey, I know ur probably tired of hearing this, but, to be honest, that is a very healthy weight to be at. not skinny and definatly not fat, right in the middle. I am only a little taller than you, and I weight much more than I'd like to admit ;) Still, if you are not happy with your body, try losing weight in a healthy way by cutting sugar and sweets out of your diet, and excerising regularly. Even if you don't lose weight, you'll still feel very healthy and good in the end.

It also depends on your age. Normally 125lbs is normal if your around 13-14
