You sound fine to me, and the fact of the matter is that one way or the other you will be where you need to be by the time you are out of high school. Between 7th grade and junior year is a tough time for most guys because some grow really big quickly while others are gradual growers. I would have much rather been like you growing gradually and understanding what is happening rather than growing really big quickly but not being mentally mature.

All you can do now is to make sure you are eating rightly such as drinking milk, not eating too much junk food, and making sure you stay away from drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. I know it gets so frustrating when everyone tells you that you will catch up, but those of us who have been down your road know what will happen. You'll be fine, and even if you're small now it's just going to be temporary. There are so many advantages to being your size not the least of which is not having much body maintenance.
