Camas & Washougal on a Diet - Video Shoot

Honored. Excited! But, also saddened that our country is in such a state that I have this opportunity. I've been asked to be the presenter for Camas & Washougal On a Diet's viewing of the HBO's series "The Weight of The Nation: Children in Crisis." To promote the event, I will be featured in a video calling the community to action.

As you know, I am a product – and now a survivor – of childhood obesity. For this and other reasons, the childhood obesity epidemic is near and dear to my heart. I'm telling you first hand, "You don't grow out of obesity. You grow into it." Most overweight children will become overweight adults.

Mark your calendars for the upcoming FREE screenings of HBO's "The Weight of The Nation: Children in Crisis" at LaCamas Swim & Sport -- Wednesday, April 3 and Wednesday, April 10 @ 7 p.m. 

Thanks to Stephanie Millman, Program Director of Camas & Washougal On a Diet for taking the time to shoot the video and the opportunity.

From the documentary:
"18 + percent of our children, right now are overweight or obese."

"I'm afraid...This is going to be the first generation of children that will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents..."


  1. Thank you Chrisetta for stepping up and helping us gather more people to view the film on Child Obesity together. The movie, 'Children in Crisis" will focus on the School Lunch programs, on government intervention, on what people (like me) in marketing have done to make use believe that a Coke will make your life happier and Lucky Charms are fortified with essential vitamins so they must be 'good for our kids'! All of us, big & small, old & young need to come together to find ways we can do something in our community. You are a beautiful, sparkling voice for this session and we appreciate you so much!

  2. No problem, Stephanie and thank you! I'm passionate about sharing what I know and helping others.

    Be the change you want to see!


The Obesity Epidemic is REAL!

The evidence of an epidemic is everywhere.

· Two-thirds, more than 190 million Americans are
overweight or obese.

· Obesity-related diseases are a $147 billion dollar
medical burden every year.

· Childhood obesity has tripled in the last thirty years
