Polishing off that family size cake to yourself can easily be avoided – don’t buy it in the first place. Wondering why you can’t lose weight as you wrap your hands around a Big Mac? The answer is right in front of you. Are people blind or oblivious?
There is nothing more frustrating for me than people who complain about their weight or health but continue to make bad food choices anyway. I have never understood one’s need to fill the trolley at the supermarket with chips, nuggets, cakes and ice cream. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a treat, but it seems as though people’s lives depend on this (excuse the language but..) crap! So as you find yourself reaching for that packet of chips or steering the trolley down the ice cream aisle just ask yourself – “what would happen if I didn’t?”. Trust me, your waist line and physical health will thank you for it.
While I might seem to be patronising when it comes to expressing the ease in the decision that takes place in one’s mind, at the end of the day it as simple as yes or no.
We all need to face our demons and make changes for ourselves. For every one of us, our health and wellbeing should come first and through small changes we can make a huge difference.
It’s easier to stay oblivious to the fact that it can be so easy to make a change and I guess that’s what most are banking off. I do believe that many health issues stem from what we put in our bodies and how we treat it. Everything is connected in our bodies and one issue can have a snowball effect on the rest.
We are all guilty of making excuses but there is a time where we need to bite the bullet and just do it. Put the piece of cake down and take the chips out of the deep-fryer, it’s time for a reality check. If you aren’t happy with the way you feel or the way you look do something about it! People struggle with the fact that the process of transformations are hard but I believe that nothing worth achieving is easy – or should be!
The moral of the story is don’t complain about something if you’re not willing to make the change and open your eyes to the issues sitting right in front of you.
