If you live in the West Midlands...........

........then you are more likely to be overweight according to an article in today's Daily Mail. Other "fatty" areas in the UK are Lincolnshire and the area surrounding Blackpool. Of course, us slender things in sophisticated London don't suffer from being overweight. We're far too in to those "superfoods" everyone's going on about.

Is really is a load of old nonsense isn't it. Firstly, BMI is no longer used as a guide to obesity as everybody is different and one's bones and muscle can vary in weight. Secondly, overall health should encompass lifestyles ( personally, I'd rather have a life) and stress levels, the latter, of course, is likely to be far higher within the M25.

I'm a brummie.
I weigh eleven stone exactly.
I used to be less.

I can tell you now, there are probably more pretty girls in brum per head of population than in any other city in the UK.
But I suppose that depends on whether, like me, you prefer them dark...

Funnily enough, I do notice more fat people now when I visit my home city of Stoke...

Poor thing. What if she's incredibly intelligent or a very good singer or a good mom and lover? It's not fair to judge on looks, no matter how chubby soemone is
