SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) –

It’s not easy fighting fat in one of the heaviest states in the country. A map shows South Carolina as one of a dozen states where more than thirty percent of the people are obese.

Janette Colantonio, of Summerville, remembers the drive home from school when a state trooper pulled her over.
