It is important to realize that fatness is more than an aesthetic issue. It can be an issue for mental health.

Although being fat was historically thought to be negative, it has changed its meaning over the past few times. Before the 1940s the term “fat” was commonly associated with being fat or obese, as well as being overweight. This has changed since the body positive movement. With more women feeling empowered to accept their bodies, the word “fat” was no anymore associated with negative feelings or stigma. The new definition of being fat can be seen positively.

The term “visible fat” refers to someone who is overweight.
Over time, this cultural desire for thinness has transformed into a medical decision. In the 1930s being 5’5″ tall and 125 lbs was considered thin. Today, a similar height and weight would be considered fat. Even though no one can refer to any study to prove it, the perception of thinness is firmly entrenched within the medical establishment.
In the end, the negative perception of obese people has resulted in a lack of accurate diagnosis and timely treatment. People who are overweight are less likely to seek medical attention since they fear being considered a failure. This results in a less favorable overall health condition than someone with an accurate perception of their weight.
Being overweight increases the risk of a variety of illnesses, including diabetes stroke, heart attack, and blindness. However, obesity does not necessarily cause these illnesses.
