Our newest number one position is the most obese state in the USA> some say we are tied with Mississippi. And Beckley---the town we go to is the most obese city in West Virginia. That is good for me because I am a bit plump myself and I get to feel slim while shopping.

Things must have changed sometime in the past few years -- Hawaii used to be the most obese state.

I would fit right in if I live in WV. A little round myself. That is better than Wyoming being the #1 state for suicide. It is a huge problem here. Maybe long winters? There is a big initiative going on right now about suicide education. Are they doing anything in WV to help with the problem?

Yes---WV is taking snack machines and soda machines out of schools---trying to teach kids to eat better. Also we have a program for single moms to get healthy food and they get a video on how to cook the food they get. People say that poor people can't afford to eat healthy---but that is BS---I grew up poor and we had healthy food stuffed in us night and day. Being plump is one thing----but when huge big people go by glaring at you in power chairs in Walmart that is another thing. Some people say mean things about them-- but I don't. I never knew I would get as plump as I am. I am NEVER mean to anyone---cause as they say--- EXcept for the grace of God---there go you and I. We also have the highest drug addiction rate---so many bad WV things. I don't understand the suicide rate in Wyoming---sounds like a great place to me ---always wanted to visit there.
