Many people do not realize that their health problems are much like moldy leftovers in the back of the fridge. If you leave something small and moldy in the back of the fridge and just pretend its not there, it will never go away. Not only will the problem still be there, but it will become worse and worse turning into a much larger more significantly gross tupperwear full of mold. If the leftovers had just been thrown out on day 5, the tupperwear just goes into the dishwasher, business as usual... but if not, the mold covered tupperwear must now be emptied, soaked in bleach, scrubbed and scraped before going into the dishwasher. and not in the fun easy way either.
Same thing with the human body. something as small as 10 extra pounds can be easily taken care of. However when its ignored and 10 turns into 20, turns into 50... then the severity of the problem is much worse. It can turn into a life threatening disease, and is not so easily or enjoyably taken care of. Now it has turned into a battle. things like high blood pressure, colon cancer, heart disease and diabetes are all connected too obesity, and with each of those problems many more risks like blindness and stroke are also on the coattails.
Many people take for granted their health and don't do what they should or could to help themselves. The road to wellness is more then just a workout or some green veggies, but its mostly mental. You have to have the motivation, dedication and passion to do it. These are traits we all want to have for life in general, so why not cherish our own lives and give our bodies the love and respect they need.
