Seems like Floridians didn't do too well on their diets in 2008. Between 2007 and 2008, the annual F as in Fat report shows the percentage of adult obesity in Florida creeped up from 23.3% to 24.1%. The good news for those who take pleasure in others' pain is that most other states are getting fatter at a faster rate. We dropped from the 38th most obese state to the 39th. Or, for you optimists, the 12th thinnest state when you include D.C.
