Overweight? Over What Weight?
Over what weight??
Over a “healthy” weight?
Who decides what a “healthy” weight is?
BMI (body mass index)?
But BMI doesn’t measure health and was never intended to measure health!
So… still waiting for an answer.
In the meantime, feel free to banish the phrase “overweight” from your vocabulary. If you’re describing yourself, try out different words you like that feel like neutral descriptors. If you’re describing someone else, feel free to ask them what terms they prefer.
