Of course, the report I saw focused on possible health issues, and I'm sure that some of that is real, and that is a problem. But for the moment just looking from the perspective of someone who loves being around other fat people:

- Obesity rate predicted to reach 20% by 2025

those are pretty amazing numbers!

study summary
Sadly, these numbers are a bit misleading, since the definitions of "overweight" and "obese" used by the medical profession have changed over the years in a downward direction.
