Do keep in mind that the views of the endurance community are not necessarily those of the average person. When I was doing powerlifting, I was considered skinny at 5'8" and 185. While that's also a skewed view, I'm fairly sure most people would consider 140 to be really skinny for a 5'10" guy. I'm now 155 and my wife gets on me for being too skinny.
