I'm 15 years old and my height is about 172 CMs (about 5.6 feet). In what range would my weight be considered normal???

Standing at 172cm tall, you should be somewhere in between 58 to 75 kilograms.

I'm 5 foot 7 (173.2cm) and my weight is 11 stone (69.9 kilogram / 154.5lb) which is considered medically average and within the healthy BMI. It's up at the high end of the BMI but I'm still slim as it's mostly toned muscle + a fat ass XD

V.I.P.
"Normal" by BMI standards is questionable. They don't take into account other types of body tissue eg muscle or breast tissue in girls.

I think your best bet in terms of weight is to look at yourself and simply ask "Am I content with myself at this size?" because what you actually weigh is irrelevant.

BMI is a faulty system; just go by what makes YOU healthy and happy.

Meh, I'm around the same height and only 50kg so a bit of a lightweight but my doctor said I'm actually pretty healthy so don't worry about weight so much.

What he said. According to the doctor, I'm underweight... by quite a bit. But, I feel fine the way I am so I'm not worried about it. Even though he's told me to put on a few pounds, I refuse to do so just cause I know I wouldn't feel good if I did.
