Finally some good news for our country's rapidly expanding waistlines, at least for the future. A new report set to be published by The Journal of the American Medical Association takes a look at the nation's obesity statistics and finds a significant decrease in obesity rates for infants and toddlers in the past decade. Somewhere in Bermuda, Michael Bloomberg sips a sugar-free diet cola and laughs arrogantly.

The study, authored by CDC researcher Cynthia Ogden, shows that obesity rates for children between the ages of 2- and 5-years-old dropped 43% since 2004, when rates hovered around 14% for the age group. The sample group in 2012 showed just about 8% of the age group were obese. The study was inconclusive about why rates changed, though less soda consumption and increased breastfeeding (or not) could contribute. "This is the first time we've seen any indication of any significant decrease in any group," Ogden told the Times. "It was very exciting."

Before we all get too excited, though, there wasn't any good news in any other age group between 2003-2004 and 2011-2012. For the most part, levels remained even across the board except for women over 60, who showed an increase from 31.5% to about 38%. Just can't catch a freaking break, amirite ladies?
