unless your like 140lbs at your age i wouldnt worry to much about your weight! Your still a growing girl and you dont want to stunt your growth and hormones with a calorie deficient diet! Try to eat plenty of Vegetables and fruits and some sources of very lean meats and dairy/nuts with some complex carbohydrates such as whole wheat bread and pasta! Try to be active and play outside, go ride your bike or jump rope with your friends or w.e girls your age do im a guy i wouldnt know lol.
