Obesity happens one pound at a time. So does prevention.

Obesity happens one pound at a time. So does prevention.


Think 10
or 20 pounds of extra weight isn’t much? We went to a park,
and we handed people 10- and 20-pound sandbags. Here’s what happened. I just
truly feel winded. I can
feel it in my back. I didn’t
realize what extra weight on the body
feels like. Oh, I definitely
felt it in my knees. You can easily
put two, three, four, five pounds on in a year. WOMAN: Ten pounds
makes a big difference. No one liked
carrying the extra weight, but people do it all the time. Wouldn’t you like to drop that
weight and stop picking up more? MAN: I think this is a life changer for me.
