It’s been a year since first lady Michelle Obama kicked off her “Let’s Move!” campaign to fight childhood obesity.
In that year, she has shimmied in a Hula-Hoop, run barefoot through an obstacle course and played flag football on the White House lawn.
“When I do these things, I’m thinking, ‘If people see me — the first lady — with my shoes off, running around with kids, sweating, jumping around, making a fool out of yourself, then maybe more moms and dads will say, ‘I can do that, and actually that looks fun,’ ” Obama tells NPR’s Michele Norris in a conversation at the White House.
Obama says one thing she knows is that her role as the first lady brings attention.
She also stated even though she is still somewhat proud of being an American it never hurts to be open to the idea of moving..
