Size 14

I heard on GMA this morning that 67% of American women are a size 14, and not long ago we heard about how size 14 is considered a PLUS size.  Personally, I don’t qualify a 14 as fat, but as having been there I always thought I could stand to lose a few.  My friends said I was a bit chubby and not fat.  Is that denial?  Complacency?  Or is the entire size concept over-rated?
