Is a size 12 considered fat? Confused...

I'm 5ft. 9in. tall - and weigh 170. I wear a size 12 jeans. Is a 12 considered fat these days? Sigh...

In this picture at Christmas I was 180 and a size 14... but have went down 10 lbs to 170, and size 12. Keep going, or no?

If you're under 6' tall I'd say a 12 is bigger... I'm 5'9" and wear a 4/6... Obviously everyone is shaped differently but I'd think 12 was chubby at least. 

At 170 your BMI would be considered overweight too.

For me, that would be obese. 

However, in the body type of other women that's perfect. 

It all depends.

Depends..... If you got junk in that trunk...... Lol.     Or a donkey booty.


i wear a 0 or 2 depending on brand. I have hardly a booty and no hips lol. So I don't think the pants u wear determines if ur fat..... Unless, u wear plus size, I'd say you're fat.

 Post a pic. I have seen some lean 5'9, 170ish and also some soup sandwich looking 5'9-170ish-people.

If I was that size/height/weight, I would feel fat. But thats just me. If you're comfortable, thats all that matters.

Not for your height it's not.
