Taller, yes; lighter, noIt is quite common for adolescents to appear to get thinner when they are actually maintaining their weight and getting taller. Actually losing weight is not typical, and losing lots of weight is not normal, unless the person, who may be more concerned with appealing to the opposite sex, is consciously trying to cut down on the calories.
