Our community is very southern and eats all the fried fast foods. I think our state is gaining more weight because of it. I'm also 100% positive that there is a link between depression and obesity as well. A lot of people get picked on because of their weight, and it's really sad. So I'm supporting Michelle Obama's "Let's Move", to prevent child obesity.
If you wanna know more information go to www.letsmove.gov Its a very good site! I recommend it to everyone who has Obese children too; if your learning about Obesity!
