Fox – Mississippi legislators trimming their own fat

Mississippi state legislators are trimming their own fat during this year’s legislative session, and it’s a bipartisan effort to shed a title the state’s held for six years and counting: “Fattest in the Nation.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 34 percent of Mississippi’s population is obese.

These statesmen aren’t holding back: 5 a.m. workouts with rope ladders, cone drills, sprints, weights and medicine balls. This isn’t football season; it’s the 12-week Mississippi State Legislative Session and the Paul Lacoste Sports Fit 4 Change Challenge.
