 My mom always refers to herself as overweight. 

I always think she's trying to avoid describing herself as fat!

 LOL!  That's what she'd say.  Then she'd add that she's not obese...

I didn't vote. Why refer to a person's weight at all?

Sometimes you need to. Like when a cop asks you for a description of someone.
