(CNN)--America's obesity problem is getting bigger.

According to a new report by the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, two-thirds of all adults and a third of children and teenagers in the U-S are overweight or obese.

Adult obesity rates increased in 16 states in the past year.

A dozen of those states now have obesity rates of at least 30-percent.

Mississippi is the most overweight state, for the seventh year in a row.

In fact, the nine states with the most obese residents are all in the South.

Colorado is the least overweight state.
