(click above to read blog post)

This post was inspired by a state of Delaware program called WEIGH TO GO to address our obesity epidemic.  According to a Gallup Well-Being Poll released Tuesday, Delaware is the third most obese state with 34.3 % of the population being obese, behind only Mississippi (35.4%) and West Virginia (34.4%).  
People living in states with the highest levels of obesity are more likely to report having had a diagnosis of chronic disease at some point in their lives including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, diabetes, cancer and heart attacks.
