Quoting Alexia:
I'm 13, and I'm 5' 2'' and I weigh 94 pounds... A lot of people tell me I'm skinny... but I still have some belly fat. Am I fat? :/


No, you're not fat at all. Also, even if it's just a little bit of belly fat that's normal. Btw, I chose this BMI adult calculator to see my weight where I'm a 26 year old female, 5'6" between 115-118 lbs. I've got a little bit of belly fat at my age too, but that's due to my sweet-tooth & lack of activity level. And I feel like I'm fat b/c both my mom & I see my belly sticking out. But I'm only trying to lose like 5 lbs.

But you're still a teenager, so you're still growing so having a little bit of belly fat at your age is something that's normal. If you still feel like you're fat, then taking walks and/or bike riding can help with that. Since I've been lazy, I've been doing mountain climbers which helps lose belly fat, but go easy. I'm only fat in my stomach & that's it.
