Hear, hear! I will take nice, overweight people over thin, self-centered and rude ones any day of the week!

Easy.

People in SA drive. People in NYC walk.

Just what I was going to say. San Antonio is so spread out that you have to drive everywhere. In NYC, you can spend an entire year in a three mile radius, if you want to.

You might as well just shoot me in the head.
No way I can be confined to that sort of environment.

It is like that everywhere no matter whether you notice it or not. It is a combination of many things. Some reasons are the same and some reasons are different for all involved.

Torpedos,

There's a reason that this type thread is met with a bit of antagonism in this forum... beside it negatively grouping the entire San Antonio area and its people into one category... this topic has been discussed ad nauseam in several previous threads already and wears old... here are a few of the most recent for your review:


Living LARGE...SA ranks 3rd Fattest Again

Most Obese U.S. Cities - SA at 3rd

OK, we made yet another unflattering list

And, here is the latest thread contradicting this theory:

From Fat to Fit!! Woo Hoo SA!!!

This has been discussed numerous times. I relocates here from MA six years ago. I agree with the OP. America in general is more obese than ever. I consider SA's problem to a few things. Disagree with me if you will.

- Tex Mex
- BBQ
- Chicken fried steak
- Sweltering temps six months per year
- Too spread out, no one can walk anywhere

In the Ne, the weather is more reasonable during the summer. Even in winter the people tough it out and walk. There's more seafood, better food. People are on the go. They're walking faster. Densely poplulated. It's just the way it is.
