Morbid Obesity

Morbid obesity differs from obesity, it is when a person has excess amounts of body fat and a body mass index or BMI greater than or equal to 35.

Morbidly obese people are at greater risk of factors that can directly affect their quality of life; like it can interfere with basic physical functions such as breathing or walking. We can say an individual is morbidly obese if he or she is 100 pounds over his/her ideal body weight.

I am almost there, but i am only 14 stone. I have a 38inch waist. Depending on the trousers. Some clothes make a person look skinny while others can make a person look over weight. I do not just mean wearing big clothes. I mean tight fits, etc.
