What could be the reason for my heavy weight though I am not obese ?

i am a 16 year old female and weigh 175 at 5 4.5, but i really do not look obese! or even close. i am not the most thin girl, but certainly not that big either. what could the reason for me weighing so much? it baffles my family and friends, and myself. my measurements are: Bust, 42 - waist, 29 - hips, 41 if that helps with anything. Thank you :)

At your age the weight is definately worrisome.Does your diet consist of entirely of fried stuffs/colas/candies? If yes you need to cut down on this and start a fitness programmeASAP.If no you could be on a low thyroid status-check your blood levels of T3 T4 TSH . and proceed further .Else you could do a metabolic level check visa vis blood sugar levels -to rule out diabetes.See if this helps.
