How do you define "overweight" and "obese"?
I saw a post earlier that started some controversy over the term "plus-size", and while most posters were reasonable and self-aware, there definitely seemed to be some confusion over what the terms "obese" and "overweight" mean.
They both have pretty strict definitions based on body mass index - a BMI of 25-30 means you're overweight, while one over 30 means you are obese. Admittedly, BMI is a flawed measure in lots of ways but very few people seem to refer to anything related to this definition when they use these terms. What do you mean when you say "overweight" or "obese"?
