Richard Simmons does good

Childhood obesity is a big problem.

Richard Simmons, he of Sweatin’ to the Oldies fame, is doing his part by testifying before Congress on ideas to combat childhood obesity on Thursday.

His personal contribution, from USA Today:

He says he is developing a reality TV show in which he’ll help children and families lose weight. “It’s going to show Americans that it’s possible to realistically lose weight, be happy and go on to other goals,” he says. “It won’t be an angry show with screaming and yelling. Just teamwork. No competition. It’s about saving lives.”
