So I'm relatively thick. I'm 5ft and about 140lbs. And yes I know the entire thing of being fat doesn't mean you're thick but I've never been told I'm fat or think I am and my doctor thinks I'm at a healthy weight. Anyways, most of it is in my legs, strength train my legs and butt to no end so I have large legs. Whenever going to school or in public I almost never see women like me, I mostly see thin, average or overweight women but I can't find a woman with legs like mine for the life of me. If it helps I'm mixed (black, white and hispanic) and I know other girls that do similar routines to mine. Am I just a leg freak or blind and not actually alone. Thanks!

Without a picture it is really a bit harder to wonder how you are. But do you mean you have thick legs like this:
Or like this:
Both are very nice thick legs, imho.1

You mostly see thin or overweight women? Girl!!! At 18 weighing 140 and only 5', is wayyy over weight. If you're comparing to the girls who literally look like walking giant balls, it does not mean you're not overweight...
Here's the problem, muscle DOES weigh more than fat, so perhaps you do carry more muscle than the average fat girl, so when you compare yourself you and others view your situation as 'normal'.. And if you've noticed the sizes have changed with time... And do you know why? That's because people eat soooo much genetically modified foods that the original "small" size doesn't exist much anymore... And so mediums and larges have now taken its place, and thus allowing for extra larger sizes to be considered more normal, and you are now allowed to weigh more to be considered overweight, but even in today's scale, you'd still be considered overweight... Even if you do have thick legs or more muscle, it's still heavy for your height and more importantly your age...
Regardless of weight though... Here's something I'd advice you to do.. Irrelevant to age as well...
Measure your height.. Which we already know is 5'
Convert that into inches... Equals 60"
Divide 60 inches in half you get 30" inches...
Now get a tape measure, and your waist line should NOT ever be grater than 30" Regardless of your age and weight... Keep always your midsection at the least Half the size of your height... And you'll always be healthy and prevent many illnesses.
So if you're 30 or less inches from waist (according to your height) then the 140 doesn't 'really' matter... If it's over 30, then regardless of what anyone tells you or how you feel you look, it's smart to lose some weight for your own health...
This is just advice... If you don't agree now, maybe in the future you will. 💁0
