Every once in a while you need a good swift kick in the rear to get going, here's one.  According to a report by the CDC, over 35 percent of adults in the United States are obese.  That's a problem.  Another issue, 17 percent of kids are currently obese.  If you are like me, you learned many of the ways that you are by watching, listening and learning from your parents.  In the last 10 years, the obesity rate for men has risen by eight percent while the rates for women has remained the same.  The results are the same for children.  So here is the rub...set an example that your children and youth that are a part of your life or this trend will continue and possibly spiral out of control. 
For a start, take a look at your diet.  Many families in Shreveport-Bossier have a very high amount of fried foods as part of their diet.  Don't get me wrong, sometimes Buffalo Wild Wings boneless wings are tasty, but when you are eating fried foods as the base for a diet, your waist line is going to grow.  A healthy diet filled with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins like chicken/pork/lean red meat.  Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, instead of soda, energy drinks or alcohol.
Start being active by yourself and with a group.  Take your kids for a walk.  Go play in the park on a weekend.  Take the dog for a run.  If you have children, they will take your example and continue to grow and follow your lead.  Keep it being positive, not negative!
