Weight gain happens over time.

Tests to diagnose: 

The diagnosis of obesity is usually based on a physical examination and a patient history (i.e., eating and exercise habits). A measurement called the body mass index (BMI) does not directly measure body fat, but it is a useful tool to assess the health risk associated with being overweight or obese

BMI is calculated as follows:

BMI = body weight (kg) ÷ height² (m)
