Shadi, statistically speaking you probably won't grow more than 1-2 inches. But 128 lbs is a healthy weight for someone who is 5'3". I'm less than an inch taller than you, just three pounds lighter and I run marathons. If I were you, I'd concentrate not on your weight or your height, but on your strength and your health. If you're not physically active every day, set that as a goal. If you don't feel like you're strong with lots of endurance, find a way to better condition your body. It doesn't have to be a team sport or anything competitive if you don't enjoy those things. My own teenage daughters have enjoyed a combination of running, mountain-biking, recreational gymnastics and yoga. The lifestyle habits you lay down over the next five years will set the tone for the rest of your life. If you make choices now to build yourself into someone who is strong and active, you will have a good chance of staying that way forever and not feeling like you need to "watch your weight" all the time.

Neither of my daughters are old enough yet, but I grew about another inch after my period started - however, I was 15 when it started, and was already 5'7". So, the lateness, combined with the height I already had most likely meant that I didn't have much left to grow.
