What does obese contour mean?
I had my physical the other day and my doctor had me lie on my back and she felt around my stomach. She pushed on my stomach and said to herself "obese contour" and that was in the exam summary as well. Does that mean I'm obese? I'm 5'5" and 185 pounds so I'm not thin but I'm not obese either. Does it mean something is wrong with my stomach?

Under recent standards you are obese. Her observation was that you are carrying your weight in your stomach region so that your stomach protrudes.

Yes, the doctor determined that you're obese. Contour means an outline, especially of a curving or irregular figure. If you're a female, your ideal weight would be 127, which is nearly 60 pounds lighter than you are now. If you're a male, 136 would be your ideal weight, still a difference of about 50 pounds. You're more than "not thin."
