For a moment there, I thought that the question was just "Does the government think ?" The answer to that one is obvious. Hell No !
As far as adiposity is concerned, I KNOW that I'm too fat, so I assume that the government would think so also. I'm 5' 8½" (1.74 m.) and 244 lbs. (110.9 kg.), struggling desperately to get down to a "svelte" (HAH !) 180 lbs. (81.8 kg.)
If you're young and overweight, LOSE IT ! You can now. At my age it's extremely difficult. I am slowly losing weight (with numerous setbacks) but I'll probably never attain my objective in this lifetime.

Agreed with Egil: I am overweight as well.
As for the test, won't take it yet. Just passing by. :)

These days soceity tells us what over weight is the goverment the media always trying to tell people to loose weight because its not healty but i feel its worse tobe trying to lose vast amounts of weight by cutting everything out of your diet all of a sudden.My sister is crazy about her weight and shes thin she is always saying to i look like a whale.This makes me sick as im not that small myself.Her life is overtakin by her endless journey to have the perfect body and why because modern society tells you have have to be thin even when you are its not enough.Going by your pictures of your holidays Gag your not over weight your a big build of a man and thats how its ment to be we are supposed to be big we are protecters and hunters.Our forefathers were big men too because what good are we if we are but skin and bone.
