The MI Healthier Tomorrow campaign encourages Michiganders to pledge to lose 10 percent of their body weight. After taking the online pledge at www.michigan.gov/mihealthiertomorrow or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mihealthiertomorrow, residents receive a free Getting Started Kit in the mail along with the option to sign up for healthy texts and/or emails with motivational messages, reminders, tips, and recipes to help keep them focused on reaching their goal of losing weight and becoming healthier.
MI Healthier Tomorrow is a statewide initiative campaign sponsored by the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) to help fight the rising obesity epidemic. Some 800,000 children and 5 million adults in Michigan have a weight problem, but losing just 10 percent can have significant improvements to both physical and mental health.
