Who will be the Legislature's biggest loser?
Lawmakers generally don't much care for being placed on the losing side of annual end-of session lists of winners and losers. But this may be an exception:
The state Capitol’s own “Biggest Loser” competition has begun, hosted by Senate Health Policy Committee Chair Aaron Bean (shown here bravely weighing in on Thursday) and House Health and Human Services Committee Chair Richard Corcoran.
“The ‘Biggest Loser’ competition is a great way to make healthy weight a team sport,'' said State Surgeon General John Armstrong, who's been plugging Healthiest Weight Florida, a public-private collaboration to promote healthy eating and active living.
It's open to all legislators, plus Capitol staff and agency employees. No word on whether we'll be treated to public weigh-ins and scoldings from personal trainers, a la TV's "Biggest Loser.''
