To dream about obesity is symbolic of overindulgence.
Perhaps you have been overdoing something lately and it’s time to pull it back and be more reasonable with what you’re eating, how you’re spending your time or your money.
On the other hand, you may not have acted upon it- but you have been thinking about doing something overindulgent a lot lately.
Obesity can be a reflection of a bad habit you’ve found hard to kick- this might not necessarily be related to eating but the dream could be a representation of another thing you do in your waking hours you know isn’t good for you.
If you were the one who was obese in the dream- this could be a result of your poor self-image. Perhaps you have low self-esteem due to your weight or maybe the weight represents another thing you are self-conscious about.
Obesity can be a sign that you are carrying an embarrassing amount of something. Y are burdening yourself with an excess that is serving you no purpose. It could be emotional baggage rather than physical. Is it time to let it go and feel the sense of freedom in is absence?
It’s possible you are having regrets about spending so much of your time enjoying yourself. Perhaps the effects have only just started to show- just how much you took things to the extreme.
The dream could be a result of your general feelings towards people who are obese. Perhaps you struggle to understand how a person could fall into such habits with their eating. There might be someone in your waking hours who is obese and you are worried about their health and their happiness.
Obesity is also thought to be linked to a lack of control. Perhaps you don’t have much power or authority over your life right now and you feel you aren’t in the driver’s seat of your own destiny.
One final interpretation is the association of obesity with mental insulation- perhaps you are trying to protect yourself from a situation in your waking hours by putting up the barriers.
