A recent study published in the journal Applied Research in Quality of Life found that most obese women are dissatisfied with their quality of life when compared to women of “normal” weight.
Researchers asked about 350 women who technically qualify as “obese” — half of them Black, half of them White — to complete a questionnaire about their quality of life. Subjects were asked to self-report on their satisfaction in areas like sexual pleasure, work life, physical function, and self-esteem.
Researchers seemed shocked to discover Black women reported a higher quality of life than White women of the same weight. Self-esteem also ranked particularly high among Black women.
