Hi simplycj0309. Where have you been? Are you now just figuring this out? You have a lot of factoids, yet real life usually doesn't add up so neatly. What is the point of this post? You are repeating information to the point of overkill, and it is worthwhile, but it is not the typical mylot discussion.

Hello simplycj0309. I think there was a news clip on Fox Chicago awhile back about the 10 fattest cities. Sadly, I think Chicago is one of them. It would be worthwhile to look into. I apologize for my abrupt criticsm okay. Obesity is a very serious problem, and it should be not only looked into, but acted on. Let me know if you find any more facts. Good luck ans happy posting!
