The Wallethub list for America's Most Obese Cities 2020  has come out, and the most obese city in America is McAllen/Edinburg Mission! Well, dang, that's not good. At least East Texas is NOT on the list!

Here are the Texas cities that made the obese naughty list:

  • #21: San Antonio/New Braunfels
  • #27: Houston/The Woodlands/Sugar Land
  • #28: Dallas/Fort Worth
  • #57: Austin/Round Rock

However! We do need to address our Louisiana neighbors in SHREVEPORT, because their city came in at #2! Whoops!

Some important things to remember about combating adult (and childhood) obesity is to eat LESS sugary and processed foods, increase dietary fiber* to your diet, and eat more fruits and veggies.

I may not be obese, but I have gained about twenty pounds in the last four years. I have gained so much weight that my daughter, Willow, has been asking me if I am pregnant since she was 4 years old.

Naw, girl, that's Mommy's left-over baby bump, chips, and wine gut!

Here are some things we can all try to eliminate belly fat quick, fast, and in a hurry:

Hold up, all I see on this list is 'Exercise more'!

UGHH, I HATE GOING TO THE GYM!

Foods that allegedly get rid of belly fat:

  • Avocados
  • Bananas
  • Yogurt
  • Berries
  • Chocolate Skim Milk
  • Green Tea

I don't like anything on that list except the avocados, yogurt, and green tea. No wonder I cannot get rid of my excess poundage, I have no self-discipline!

*Dietary Fiber does not include spicy chicken sandwiches from KFC. I know this because I checked.
