Overall health vs. weight

According to a survey, most women are more concerned with their weight than their overall health ( Am I missing something here? Haven't we dietitians been telling people that being overweight IS a health risk? So why wouldn't women be concerned with their weight? Okay. I get it. Even women who don't have a weight problem but are not living a healthy lifestyle (exercise, eating properly, getting enough sleep, etc.) are overly concerned with their weight. Well, I kind of think we have a responsibility with that one. Obesity. Overweight. Overfat. And then linking being fat to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and even Alzheimer's. Why wouldn't we women be overly concerned about our weight!
