Excuses…they just might kill you!

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Let’s start off with this definition of OBESITY. Keep in mind that obesity is one of our Nation’s leading preventable causes of death.

OBESITY – Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Wow! I don’t know about you, but when I read phrases like “reduced life expectancy”, “increased health problems”, and “increases the likelihood of various diseases”, that scares me. Yet millions of people continue to make excuses for not losing weight. Why do you think this is? Is it because of laziness? Is it due to a lack of willpower or self discipline? Whatever the reason…if you’re overweight, headed in obesity’s territory or already there, you can’t afford to have an excuse for not losing weight!

Stop making excuses and start losing weight…otherwise those excuses just might kill you!
