The latest edition of Chicago Health focused on Chicago as a BIG city…and it was not all positive. So how did we get this reputation? And, is it only about Chicago, or about our country as a whole? Our obesity epidemic, and yes, it has reached epidemic proportions, boils down to we do not move enough, and we consume too much food. The choices that we have made have created this health challenge. Think about your own choices – to move more, consume less, select wisely, shop carefully. Think about your habits – those that have challenged your health and well-being, and those that will impact you for the long haul. Then, generate a ‘fix.’ How? Generate two columns on a page; in the first column, list your habits! In the second column, list the choices that you could possibly make that would allow you to keep your habit, but create positive change. We are the City of BIG – big museums, big restaurants, big theatre, big culture! But, do we really want to be the City of BIGGER than BIG people? I think not!
