    That is what they said on an obesity program on TLC.

    Do you know anyone that big? I don't.

    If you weighed that much would you be out and about meeting people? Obesity is still in the closet even with Oprah having shows about it periodically.....

    I am a personal trainer and I had no idea it was that many! The good news is we hit a ceiling mark for obese children, but now we are working to reverse it. Fat kids no longer are being made fun of in school as much as it used to, because its getting to be the norm in our society.

    Sounds like there is a market for recreational flour.

    Added up?

    I have no doubt the US has a weight issue, but 550lb is HUGE. I have trouble believing that many weigh that much.

    Yes me too. I'd say that 2 million or more weigh over 350-400 lbs. though. (I've known at least 4 or 5 people in that category...)
