Obesity

In this age of continual ranting about how our society is so obese, I've come to wonder: What exactly makes a person obese? A lot of people are overweight, sure, but obese? I always thought that obese was much larger than the other. Or are the terms interchangable now? Furthermore, are the criteria for who is overweight/obese different than it used to be, now that people are expected (by the infamous "they" I suppose) to be skinnier and skinnier? Thoughts, anyone?
