I saw the saddest thing today while at the store. There was this lady, she was a white haired grandma type, probably in her 70's. She was so big she had to walk with a walker. Her poor ankles and calves were as big around as a large man's thighs. She could barely move. All she could do was shuffle to get out of the store.
Of course, I prayed for her. I prayed that the Lord would intervene in her life, bring her someone who would show her a healthy lifestyle, maybe help her move a little bit more, SAVE HER LIFE! I pray He will do that for her.
She's still young enough to do things like travel, shop, play with her grand kids, volunteer, visit her family and friends. But I bet she can't do any of those things, because she is bound by her body. Trapped, unable to get where she wants or needs to go, unable to move...
How many of us would be in her shoes, if we had not started our journey now? Aren't you glad you did not wait, that you did not waste one more minute of your life? Aren't you glad you are making healthy choices and not jeopardizing your body anymore so that you can eat junk food? Aren't you glad you made this decision to get healthy? Aren't you glad you did it now?
What?? Are there still some of you, out there, who are not ready to get healthy? Not willing to even try? Really? You think eating junk food is better than living? That it's OK to be a big fat women or man who can barely walk when they are old? ~ You think junk food and poor choices are better than good health and a long life? REALLY?
I am begging you....
NO ~ I AM PLEADING WITH YOU!! Don't let another minute go by.
Do something today! Make good healthy choices!! Do it right now!!! DO IT EVERY DAY!!!!
Don't be that old woman or man who will miss out on so many things because you are just too weak and fat to experience life.
Make your decision today.
If you are on track with your healthy lifestyle, stay on track, don't ever stray and don't ever, ever, ever give up!!!
Do it ~ Do it today!!
I'm doing my part ~ are you?
So sorry ~ I am so grieved by what I'm seeing out there!! It scares me to death. That woman could have been me!!! I am so thankful that I am where I am today, working my plan, getting fit and healthy. And I am thankful you are doing the same. I don't want anybody to have to go through the pain of what that women is going through. Lord Bless her!!!
I want to be and I want you to be the living, breathing proof to the world that unhealthy lifestyles can be changed. That we can get fit and healthy, get this weight off and keep it off ~ for life!
We can do it.
Lets change our nation.
