Just the time and sweat you put into your choice of exercise.
Why is this mission a serious deal? In the past 30 years childhood obesity has tripled, according to the CDC. An obese child is more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease and will have a greater chance of getting diabetes as an adult. Not only that, but children who are obese also must deal with negative social stigma and low self-esteem. In the long-term, children that remain obese into adulthood face the reality of increased rates of certain cancers, type-2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
