So it's official... we're a fat state! Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed Oklahoma has neither controlled or prevented us from becoming one of most obese states in the nation.
Obesity sounds so much nicer than fat...but we're fat. We eat to much junk, drink to many sweet drinks, booze & beer, exercise to little and smoke to much.
Airlines are creating bigger seats for our seats, many clothing designers are making their clothes larger but labeling them with smaller sizes so we can lie to ourselves about our weight.
Okc Mayor Mick Cornett got 47,000 Oklahomans to loose 20 lbs a piece for total of one million pounds... and yet we're still the 6th fattest state in America!
Granted its not easy to lose weight...much less go from obese to just heavy...but if we don't we're
more likely to die from heart disease, have a stroke, type 2 diabetes or cancer.
So help yourself...take a walk, have a carrot instead of cake, put down the cigarettes...get healthy. I need you alive and watching KSBI!
