America is just getting bigger and bigger every year!
A recent report by the Trust for America's Health (TFAH) showed that U.S. obesity rates rose in 31 states in 2006. Twenty-two states showed an increase for the second year in a row. No states showed improvement in reducing obesity rate.

TFAH recommends a comprehensive approach for helping individuals make healthy choices including support from families, communities, schools, employers, the food and beverage industries, health professionals, and government at all levels.
It seems to be a insurmoutable task and loft goal to fight obesity. We have come a long way. It got to restart somewhere again. We cannot give up our health and our children's health.
