There is no ideal weight for a 12-year-old. Weight is related to height and body composition rather than age. Therefore, we would need to know your height in order to answer your question. For in-depth information about weight in relation to height, and to see the distribution of weights and heights of children at various stages, please see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions.
