While being overweight was once thought to be negative, it has changed its meaning in recent years. Until the 1940s when being fat was usually associated with being overweight or obese, as well as being corpulent. However, the body positivity movement has changed this perception. With women becoming more confident to accept their bodies, the word “fat” was no anymore associated with negative feelings or stigma. It is possible to view fat in a positive way.

The desire for thinness in the culture has evolved into a medical opinion. In the 1930s, for instance, being five feet five inches tall and weighing 125 pounds was considered thin. In the present, a similar weight and height would be considered fat. Even though no one can point to one study to prove it, the perception of being thin is well-established within the medical establishment.
As a result, the negative image of obese people has resulted in an inability to make a correct diagnosis and timely treatment. People who are overweight are less likely to seek medical attention since they are afraid of being judged. This can lead to a lower health situation than someone with an accurate perception of their weight.
