When I started this blog, it was to share my weight loss journey and healthy recipes to help others get healthy and lose weight. One things I’m very passionate about is the growing obesity problem. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish there were more I could do personally to help other people eat better and live more active. After all, I’ve been in there. I know what it feels like to be overweight and what it takes to make healthy lifestyle changes.
Something else I’m passionate about it are kids. While I don’t have children of my own, I believe obesity starts with kids. The habits formed at a young age carry with us into adulthood. Right now childhood obesity is on the rise which means more adults who may be obese.
It’s important to teach our future generations about eating healthy, what real nutrition means and showing them how to stay active. When I was contacted last month to participate in STEP UP 4 KIDS Challenge, my response was where do I sign up?
