Massachusetts the skinniest state
"Massachusetts has the 50th highest rate of adult obesity at 19.8 percent and the 27th highest rate of overweight youths (ages 10-17) at 13.6 percent in the nation, according to a new report by Trust for America's Health (TFAH)."

Maybe it's also because it's so damn expensive to live here that we have to choose between eating and paying for rent. Or maybe it's because we drive ourselves so hard that by the time we get home we're so damn tired that we eat what I did last night, a bowl of cereal and two bottles of beer, playing the guitar, watching the Sox.
