Colorado a heavyweight in skinny survey

You won't find Donna Simpson, world's fattest woman, anywhere near this state.

As David McSwane reported here yesterday, a recent Gallup poll crowned Colorado as the winner in the competition for slimmest U.S. metro cities, with its four largest metro areas taking a huge bite out of the top ten ranking.

Boulder didn't take the organic, non-fat cake this time, though. Although that town still tops the overall well-being index published by Gallup, when it comes to waist lines, the Fort Collins/Loveland area, its foe to the north, wins bragging rights.

Also making the top ten list: Colorado Springs and Denver.
