I hate the words obese and also morbidly obese. They really aren't accurate at least not by the clinical definitions. Someone who is supposed to weigh 120 would be considered obese at 144 and morbidly obese at 156, really that isn't obese or morbidly obese. The definitions for obese is: 20% above ideal body weight and for morbidly obese it's: 30% above ideal body weight. That isn't that much depending on how much you are to weigh. I consider myself over weight however by the definitions I'd be between the two. The words really do not describe the facts. Yes I admit I could lose some weight but I don't think of myself as obese.
