FORT WORTH – Monica Calton saw history Thursday.

After stopping at a far north Fort Worth Olive Garden, only because she saw news media vehicles and police cars parked outside, she got a glimpse of first lady Michelle Obama.

Obama – on a tour to talk with parents about changing eating and exercise habits in their homes – walked into the restaurant as Calton and other onlookers yelled and cheered.

“I can’t believe she’s this close to me,” said Calton, 44. “I’m the person who never wins anything and I just won the lottery by seeing her.”

Inside, Obama met with eight parents as part of her three-day, four-state tour marking the two-year anniversary of her Let’s Move! campaign. The effort aims to reduce childhood obesity by urging more healthful eating habits and more active lifestyles.
