Let's see if we're right!

Paula has lost 40 pounds after the announcement that she had Type 2 diabetes last year (but actually had it for years). That's a pretty big feat to lose all that weight, regardless if you're making tons of bank off of lying to your viewers. Her family, all together, lost 178 pounds! DAMNZ!

That's gotta be by like, what, 15 people or something? Not a big gap?

Nope — we're sitting comfortably at #1 in infant mortality, injury and homicide rates, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS, drug abuse, obesity and diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and disabilities. USA!
