I'm 5'3" and 145 so I must be really fat! (Okay, I am a little fat but that is not not not fat!)

If the woman has a high body fat percentage then she will appear "fat". If the woman has low body fat percentage and her weight is due more to the amount of lean body mass that she has then she will appear "toned". The same woman could look TOTALLY different depending on the composition of her body.

Oh Brooke...hun you are far from fat. I weigh more than I look...in fact some people before I got preggo told me that I needed to gain weight. I weighed 132 and was 5'3. I am just very muscular and toned...I asked someone what they thought that Iweighed and they told me 115! So, I don't go by those charts that say this person needs to weigh this without taking into account muscle mass. I took a class in college that backs me up on it if your Mom wants some research to prove it...haha;)

141 at 5'7"? NO, that's not fat!
Here... for a small, medium, and large frame, respectively, are the suggested weights:

5'7"
123-136
133-147
143-163

That gives you a BMI of 22 which is WELL within the normal (18.5-24.9) range.
