The waistlines of Kansans and Missourians are continuing to expand. A report issued by Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Found found that folks in both states are getting fatter.
According to the report, the number of Kansans who are obese has more than doubled in the last 15 years. That's good enough to be the 16th fattest state overall (back in 1995, the Sunflower State ranked 36th) with 65 percent of adults being obese or overweight. Don't laugh, Missouri. You won't be showing anyone a six pack either.
Missouri ranked 11th with an obesity rate of 30.3 percent (and 66 percent of adults in Missouri are either obese or overweight).
Think I'll skip lunch and hit the treadmill for the next year. I don't want to end up washing myself with a rag on a stick.
