You're invited...

...To a free screening of HBO's The Weight of The Nation sponsored by Camas and Washougal on a Diet. I'm excited to be the presenter of the third part of the series, "Children in Crisis."

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. When I started this blog, my goal was to reach out to overweight children and their parents, well the blog took a life of it's own. And I haven't addressed the issue as much as I would have liked, but here's my way to address the issue and get the community involved. 

I'm telling you first hand, "You don't grow out of obesity. You grow into it." Most overweight children will become overweight adults. Please join in on this important conversation -- it affects each and every one of us, directly or indirectly.

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. 

I'll see you there!


Thanks to Stephanie Millman, Program Director of Camas & Washougal On a Diet for taking the time to shoot the video and the opportunity. Also, thanks to Teresa Torres of  the Cascade Park Community Library for allowing us to shoot the video on site.

overweight or obese.

medical burden every year.
