Michelle Obama credited her anti-obesity program with bringing about a "cultural shift" in the way Americans eat.
"Make no mistake about it. We are changing the conversation in this country. We are creating a cultural shift on how we live and eat. And our efforts are having an impact on our children's lives." The first lady touted the success of her Let's Move anti-obesity program during a visit on Friday to Orr Elementary School in Washington, D.C.
Obama said when she first began her signature initiative, she couldn't imagine a time when fast-food commercials advertised for breakfast sandwiches made with egg whites. And she praised restaurants like Red Lobster and Olive Garden for offering healthy choices.
Obama also reiterated an August study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that showed 19 states and territories saw obesity rates decline among low-income preschoolers.
But the first lady warned there was a still a "long way to go in solving this problem."
Right now, were truly at a pivotal moment a tipping point when the message is just starting to break through, when new habits are just beginning to take hold, and were seeing the very first glimmer of the kind of transformational change that were capable of making in this country."

It’s not just Moochelle’s big butt, it’s her clothes that set her apart. Although she’s often been praised (by morons) for her supposedly trend-setting fashion sense, Moochelle’s ugly outfit is put to shame by the classy dresses worn by the other two women.
We are creating a cultural shift on how we live and eat.
Yes we will live in tents and eat rice.
Maybe she could get a McLean to show how customers want healthy choices. Oh wait, no one bought it and it only lasted a few years. By bad.
I have a profound dislike for people who think they are more important than they really are.
Two pretty good looking ladies and some kind of animal.
She’s so “First Lady” like....
From my cold dead hands, wookie.
------------------------------------> Its hard to dress a Yeti.
"Let's Move" Big Foot and the Kenyan out of the White House as soon as possible.
Ignore them at your peril until then.
These obamas sure are impressed with themselves. He is “transformative”. She is creating a cultural shift.
where would we be without these people?
Has she got both elbows on the table?
I’d tell her to ‘stuff it!’ but it appears to be unnecessary.
Hahahahahah. The kid behind her.
“Yes we will live in tents and eat rice”
Arsenic laced rice so they say.
wasn’t there a recent food poisoning outbreak at those restaurants due to the Mexican lettuce?
Fashion setter, she certainly is - now we have to look at a lot of fat arms due to the sleeveless dresses - very few look good in that fashion — Michelle draws more attention to herself ‘cuz she has muscles and Barry doesn’t. Boo hoo.
If two narcissists — intent on taking credit for everything good and accepting no responsibility for anything bad — marry each other, can they be President?
Where would we be? We would have our privacy, we would be prosperous, and happy. Just to name a few.
