Dear Normal Weight For A 4'9,

A healthy weight range for a 26 year old woman who is 4’9” would be around 92-116 pounds.


One useful way to determine whether someone is in a healthy weight range is by calculating their body mass index (BMI). BMI is a calculation that uses height and weight to estimate how much body fat someone has. It is used to determine how appropriate a person’s weight is for a certain height and age. There are different BMI calculators used for children and adults. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explain on their website what the BMI is, what various BMI findings indicate, and how to calculate your BMI based on height and weight. To learn more about BMI and calculate your BMI, go to the following link:


If you have any questions or concerns about your weight and whether or not you fall in a healthy weight range, please speak with your primary care physician. Remember that 92-116 pounds is only an average weight range for people of your height, and that meeting with a doctor for a full physical is the best way to determine whether or not you are at a healthy weight.


If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-6475 for an appointment or contact your local teen health center. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
