First Lady Michelle Obama is encouraging many with her “Lets Move” campaign to reduce childhood obesity, not only by talking to school students throughout the country but by influencing her staff workers within the White House as well.
A Shapedown program for overweight adolescents and children on November 20, in Aurora, Colorado, which is a 10-week family centered program held by the Denver area Children’s Hospital teaching youth and their parents ways to lead a healthier more active lifestyle, a longer lasting weight-loss alternative to dieting.
Michelle Obama’s campaign is so encouraging to many, adults and children alike. In today’s society with Burger King, McDonald’s and every other fast food restaurant within blocks of these inner cities, you have the companies that own the Olive Garden, Red Lobster and four other popular restaurant chains pledging to cut the calories and sodium in its meals and to overhaul its kids’ menu.
I think the first lady’s campaign is a positive thing, so why pledge to lose weight in the New Year, let’s move now…
