Councilman Loses Nearly 100 Pounds

After serving ten years as councilman at large, and being elected as District 2 Councilman last fall, one member of the city council has been slowly disappearing.

Roosevelt Johnson has lost nearly 100 pounds in the last year, and says he lost every pound the old fashioned way.

Louisiana ranks sixth in the nation among adult obesity rates, and fourth in childhood obesity rates.
