LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero is kicking off a new public health initiative to help area residents set fitness and weight loss goals.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1ERmTsC ) Bernero on Thursday night plans to step on a scale during his State of the City address. The effort, called Lansing Loses a Million, will help connect people with resources and track their progress.

Bernero says weight is “one of our biggest, most identifiable problems.” He wants to “underscore all of the opportunities to get healthy.”

Lansing Loses a Million is the brainchild of Kelly Zielinski and Ashley Logan, who founded the Lansing nonprofit Lettuce Live Well. They were working in nutritional counseling and started the organization to help more people achieve a healthier lifestyle.
