There are over 64 percent of Americans that are over-fat and overweight. Living this way can literally cost you money and time. The average person that is overweight tends to spend an additional $400-$1000 monthly on groceries, eating at restaurants, doctor bills, larger clothes, and insurance premiums.
Obesity-related illnesses cause an astonishing loss of 39 million work days per year in America. Your weight gain isn’t just costing you, but your company as well. You are your number-one asset in life and if you aren’t taking care of that asset to the best of your ability then other areas in your life will diminish.
Picture or draw a “wheel of life” categorized in sectioned pie pieces with each one individually labeled according to life’s priorities. For example, mine would be sectioned into faith, family, health, relationships, finances, career, etc. When I look at my wheel, I see that my health is the glue that holds all of these categories in tact. In fact, the quality of each area of your life is a reflection upon your current health condition as well.
To have a healthy mind, body, and spirit allows one the opportunity to live up to their fullest potential and maximize their success. Without great health, then it would be difficult to be fully engaged with any of the other areas in life. How many times have you noticed your health getting in the way of relationships, career, or even life experiences? Think about it. Is your weight keeping you from playing with your kids full out, is it keeping you from traveling and seeing the world, maybe it’s just keeping you in a negative, lack of self-esteemed funk. It’s time to focus on the glue that fixates everything together…your health and well-being.
Hmmm, focus? That might be what is lacking. How do you get focus and achieve better health in the process? Focus comes once the decision has been faithfully made to make a change. It doesn’t mean you know all the steps or what to do, but you’re focused on the end result and why you are ready to change. Once you look at yourself in the mirror and commit to transforming into the person that you were created to be, add determination and motivation to your focused decision. It’s not always easy to get “real” with yourself, but when you decide to release the weight for YOU then results will take shape. Remember that doing this for you has a positive effect on every other facet of your life. Never under estimate the power of healthy choices one baby step at a time – it will cost you in other areas of your life if you don’t!
