Jack Weighs In

Jan. 26, 2006

I love Cincinnati.

And I love Cincinnati food!

But friends, I don't love what it's done to me -- or make that, what I've done to myself.

Those of you who have been kind enough to tune in over the past 12 years have seen me blow up like a balloon. And recently my family and my doctor have been warning about the increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and a whole host of other ailments that overweight people run.

For years I've been binge eating bad food. It's easy to blame the odd hours we work here and all the treats brought into the newsroom, but the fact is I've been irresponsible.

Overeating sets a bad example for my daughters and even for many of the folks who tune in to our news. I've also been worried about my good pal Rich, and he's worried about me.

So although we're calling this a competition, we both hope to come out winners... and maybe you will, too.
