Use of overweight as a noun is common in the health professions.  It sometimes
appears in the popular media in medical contexts. e.g.

"People generally go to health spas for some combination of these three reasons:
  to get in shape, to be pampered, to deal with a problem
 such as stress or overweight or grief."

Deborah Fallows Atlantic MOnthly July 1996
