That used to be me, a statistic of obesity. Realize you are great, and you can change your life, anyone has this potential. As a leading nation, to have almost 75% of our population overweight presents a scary statistic about our ability to be healthy and operate as a positive example. Health education, health counseling, nutrition, and fitness should be part of our daily culture and we need to bring those numbers down if not just for the health cost benefits.
