What is a good weight to be when you are a girl and are 5'11'?

Between 140 and 200. Less than that can be healthy for a teenager, for example when you first reach that height, but you should not stay that thin.
Insurance companies took samples of data over decades, and years of analysis suggest that 100 pounds for the first 5 feet and 5 pounds additionally thereafter was a healthy minimum weight to maintain, thus at 5'11", the insurance recommendation was 155. 10 percent more or less than that is entirely healthy, depending on muscle mass and bone structure.
