Bigger isn’t always better in terms of your health

Print Article

Bigger. Bigger. Bigger. I have spent an amazing amount of time out of town recently and I am shocked in what I see on a very regular, that is to say daily, basis.

In the grocery stores, there are people who actually spend their hard earned money on sugar-laden foods that have absolutely no nutritional value at all. Why? There are people driving vehicles while their steering wheel touches their all-too-large stomach. Why? Are you someone who “needed” a serious illness to wake you up to reality? To take your life and health to the optimum level.

Guess what people … you only live once.

Are you someone who is content purchasing a larger size when you shop for clothes. Why? Why would you settle for being out of shape, with low energy and health conditions?

What if I told you that you didn’t need fancy workout equipment, little spandex shorts or falsely advertised “special” pills to get your body in shape. You need to make a serious mental shift and take control of your life. There are so many things that are in your control … if you would only open your eyes and see the opportunity.

It is very easy to wake up with self-doubt, pity, the weather is cold and the roads are a mess, the house is a wreck, laundry is piling up, the kids are driving you crazy, debt is out of control, blah, blah, blah. Get over yourself and stop complaining. Here’s a thought … why don’t you regain a little self control. You already have within yourself everything you need to start on a healthier path. It all begins with a decision. Look in the mirror and make a decision! Don’t settle for bigger, bigger, bigger … Why not reach for better, better, best! Take care of yourself and start today!
