Governor Snyder launches weight lose campaign

MICHIGAN. -- Attention Michiganders, Governor Rick Snyder has a challenge for you. Lose 10 percent of your body fat in 2013.

It is part of a new campaign launched Wednesday that is called Michigan Healthier Tomorrow. Snyder says many residents have pounds to lose.

Five million Michiganders are obese along with 800,000 kids. It costs all taxpayers, healthy or not, billions every year.

If you take the pledge, you'll get a starter kit in the mail to help their weightloss journey.
