TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)- The Florida Department of Health is launching a new program aimed at helping you reach a healthy weight. 

The new initiative is called "Small Steps to Living Healthy," a weekly email campaign with healthy tips and resources.

The Department of Health hopes the campaign will allow Floridians to get the tools they need to take the first steps towards a healthier life.

They will offer tips on topics like moving more, setting goals, and eating smart. 

Only 36% of Floridians are at a healthy weight, and by the current trend, almost 60% of people in the sunshine state will be obese by 2030.
