Truth or Consequences – Weight Loss for good!Written by Greg Ryan
What if you could actively change outcome of your life by eating better and getting daily exercise? What if you felt better had more energy, less pain, and a better attitude toward aging? What if you approached life with more confidence, rather than dreading day? The fact is you will never know ahead of time when your life will end. Life, love and logic never seem to be on same page. You can leave this earth anytime and for any reason. How you decide to live those days before you do go is your choice. You can continue down path you're going with achy joints, low energy levels, high stress, and poor eating habits or you can choose a different path.
The health of America is going to get worse before it gets better. Diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, heart disease-are all at epidemic levels. And for first time in history kids of today are projected not to live as long as there parents have. The only way for health of America to get better is for all of us to be personally responsible, change our attitudes toward exercise, and support one another in process.
In "good years," more money, more marketing and more-for-me attitudes enabled us to focus on making big bucks. It allowed us to put off worrying about healthy bodies. The accent was on NOW and not later. But fiscal wealth we accumulated years ago is NOW being drained by our physical healthcare costs. Eventually, our bad health will consume all extra dollars we worked so hard to earn. Some of responsibility falls with big corporations, insurance companies and hospital groups. But at end of day, buck stops with YOU.
The reality of this situation bites; however, solution is not to ignore it, but to encourage people to embrace it.
Many of you have either given up on yourself or just flat out are living in denial. Either way choice is still yours. The fact of matter is there is still hope for America and there is still hope for you, too.
Don't let buck stop with you. Take care of your own life before it takes charge of you.
Why start now? Pay me now or pay me later. I can just hear doctors say. With life comes responsibility and with decisions comes consequences. It's your choice today to do something positive. Tomorrow it may be out of your hands. Remember three underlying emotions that keep us from taking better care of ourselves: denial, pride, and laziness. Consciously or subconsciously, this threesome is root of why most Americans have allowed themselves to get in shape they are in.
Weight Loss Fast and Exercise or Pay Now or Pay them Later!Written by Greg Ryan
Why have I allowed myself to get into this shape? With life comes responsibility and with decisions comes consequences. It's your choice today to do something positive. Tomorrow it may be out of your hands. There are three underlying emotions that keep you from taking better care of yourself: denial, pride, and laziness. Consciously or subconsciously, this threesome is root of why most Americans have allowed themselves to get in shape they are in.
Are you one of them?
Chances are sooner or later one or all three will be riding with you in car to hospital. Have you found yourself saying these things?
"My diet is not that bad." "A few trips to fast food joint once in awhile won't hurt." "My blood pressure is fine today. It wouldn't hurt if I skipped a day of taking my medication." "My New Year's resolution next month is to get in better shape." "Why have I let myself get this out of shape?
"It won't happen to me…no way, no how!"
Unfortunately, it is what we cannot see that is killing us. Our insides are getting eaten away because of our lack of exercise and poor eating habits. Society is so concerned with extreme makeover television shows that we have been caught off guard with silent killers: heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Even if outside looks good, damage is still done inside our bodies. Over time we have made ourselves feel comfortable with certain lifestyle habits.
We overlook long-term consequences of our behaviors. We see things going on around us, but we continue to put off exercise and eating better for another day. Out of three, Denial is sneakiest beast of them all.
"Do not let them see you sweat or show any signs of weakness."
Ever find yourself saying one of these? "If I cannot do it on my own, then I will not do it at all." "Just very fact of having to take better care of me, irritates me." "I'll put off my check up until next fall." Ever have any of these thoughts? Denial's brother, Pride, may not be sneakiest, but he is strongest personality of boys. Having too much pride costs millions of lives every year in any arena you can imagine, especially in health and aging process. While pride may be strongest emotion out of three, he always seems to lose. His ego gets best of him and aging finally wins out in end.
