It’s official. One in every 4 women is now obese. This is the first time that such high number of women have been considered obese. The question isn’t about how the women look. The question is about why does it matter what women look like as long as they are happy? If the obesity isn’t affecting the health of the woman, then it shouldn’t matter how much she weighs. Obese to one person might be 20 pounds overweight while obese to a doctor might be 50 pounds overweight. The obesity factor comes into play when the person her a significant amount of weight added to the body and can’t lose that weight.
Women are seeing about 40% overweight while men are seeing about 35% overweight. It seems like this is more of an issue than the overall health. Just because someone has a few extra pounds doesn’t mean that the person can’t walk or doesn’t eat the proper foods. It doesn’t mean that the person has health conditions that would not allow them to have a functional life. It simply means that the person isn’t the stereotypical size that a woman should be according to those who see the desired female form in movies and on television. Weight is just a number. The health of the woman and her self-esteem should be all that matters.
