I have been a huge Derrick Jackson (columnist for the Boston Globe) fan for years. While his topic here is the success that the French have had in battling obesity, there is a note on the svelteness of Mass residents.

@tsarstepan,
I really didn't care because I was so pleased with MA's ranking. I didn't look.

I didn't notice it in the article. I wonder if I have to go back to Massachusetts to get in on this healthy eating thing.... Razz

@tsarstepan,
It's probably Colorado that's smallest.

I moved out of Massachusetts a few years ago, which must have improved it's score dramatically Smile

We lived in MA for 8 years and I'd agree with that. I don't think, somehow, that Texas ranks too high in slender people. I'm miserable even being 6, 7 pounds over my ideal fit-in-my-clothes weight, so keep those pounds off.
