Is 140 pounds fat? I recently started to gain weight, about 30 pounds in total, and I feel as if I need to lose weight. I have a moderately healthy diet, and I get a normal amount of exercise every day. Yet when I look around me, I feel like the biggest person in the room. Maybe I'm just being overdramatic, but I've been feeling like this for about a month. My family got a treadmill awhile ago, and I'm thinking about using it more often. I'm 5"8. Not too tall, not too short. Average for a female. But I can't help but feel self-conscious in everything I'm wearing.
