I chose Kelly's story from independent learning project by students, her story was about obesity. Her story stated that over 1 billion American adults were overweight. She said that 32% of adults were obese which I didn't know. I knew that obesity can have an effect on your health I just didn't know how much, it can cause diabetes, coronary heart disease,myocardial infarction's, strokes, kidney failure and numerous others. That's why I think it is so important to be healthy now days, I want to teach my kids to have healthy lifestyles, but it needs to start with me!
