According to the BMI calculator for children on the CDC.Gov site, the BMI for these stats is 26.1 which is in the 96th percentile for girls this age and is considered "obese." It is important that you not try to lose weight on your own, but instead speak with your parents and/or a teacher and/or your doctor so that they can help learn and put in to practice healthy habits.
