If you worry about your weight, make sure to discuss it with your doc.
A physical and bloodwork can usually determine whether everything is a-okay.

Your Body Mass Index (which can help in evaluating weight) at 5'7 and 120 pounds would be 18,97. A BMI below 18,5 is considered underweight.

Well I am 14 I am 5'5 and I think my weight is somewhere between 95 lbs to 100 lbs..To me it sounds like to me you are going threw a normal Teen thang..See I eat all the time and never gain a pound..I hate it because I know I look punny..My sister told me that I look like I have an eating disorder but I dont..I wouldn't worry about it unless you think there could be something up..Then I would a docter..
Hope I helped..

The best way to find an eating plan that will help you get to a healthy weight is to visit a nutritionist...they are a wonderful resource in helping to change your eating habits to obtain the results you want.

My sister is about 5'6 and weighs roughly 90 pounds. But the doctor says she's healthy. And she definitely doesn't have an eating disorder. She literally eats about 3 times as much as I do. And I'm 5'7 and weigh about 165 lbs.

Of course, it kinda bothers me sometimes, but with all the anorexic looking models with in the media, who doesn't get bothered by their weight?
