More than 200 Texas state troopers will need to slim down by the end of the year or face disciplinary actions by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Men with waists sizes over 40 inches and women over 35 inches will now have to track and share their weight loss efforts, KHOU reports.

DPS claims the policy, that will apply to about 4,000 officers, is designed to keep good health and physical fitness for officers. Those who don't trim down, despite passing all their physical fitness tests, could still be disciplined.

Officers who don't trim down by December can be denied promotions, overtime, or even be removed from enforcement duties completely.
