Before I pass on to the next life, I want to try a real Philly cheesesteak. My son's best friend is from Philly and has recommended a couple of places.

BTW, we are really looking forward to the Atlanta/Philly game this weekend. GO Falcons!!!!

Im from seattle. Its kinda odd to think about seattle being the fittest city because it rains so much wouldnt you think a warm city Like LA would be more fit because they can go out side all year but people in seattle have constant gray rainy weather,

New Orleans was 7th, I believe. Living here, it's hard to believe that NO doesn't win this contest hands down.

As a resident of Honolulu, I'm actually shocked to see my city 2nd on the most fit list. True, we have good weather all year, but there's just too much fat people and too much rich cuisine. People are either in the extremes of cut or soft. My state's constantly mentioned in obesity lists so this IS a shock indeed.

I'm also suprised to see boston as #11 in fittest. I woulda guessed #1 or #2. People walk so darn fast here it's unbelievable! Everyone is in such a hurry.

A couple of years back the city of "blubbery love" was in the top spot.

Go Philly!

It's cuz of that fat pitcher the Red Sox just signed :p NE Pennsylvania's pretty fat too.
