At 5'6" and 140 lbs, you are well within the 'healthy weight' range so it's not going to be as easy to lose those 10 lbs as it might be if you weighed much more to start. Maybe you don't need to lose WEIGHT but might need to tighten up the muscles to look better. I think we often look at the scale as our primary measure when we should look at muscle tone, fat percentage and so forth. At any rate, you didn't mention anything about your exercise/fitness level so maybe you are already doing a lot but I'd suggest strength training and moderate cardio as a start - and use the measuring tape instead of the scale! Some people at 140 would look like a blob because they had no muscle tone and all blubbler while others at the identical weight would look very buff and slim - that might also help you lose at least some of those 10 lbs in the process! Good luck!
