Weight Loss

Idaho STEP Challenge website

We all know the conventional wisdom: If you want to lose weight, you have to exercise more and eat less. Representative Mike Simpson took this advice, and says he’s lost 70 pounds in the last year-and-a-half. The nine-term Idaho congressman says he eats better and credits a Fitbit given to him by his wife, which tracks how much he walks.

Now, he’s encouraging his constituents to join his turn toward a healthier lifestyle.
