Yesterday, Facebook friend, Tim Arquette posted a photo on his wall that honestly, made me really sad to look at. Probably because it's a disheartening reality and I can attest to it -- I've lived it.
A majority of Americans today are obese, and the statistics are not getting any better. While fast food restaurants are now offering healthier choices, it's not always about what you eat, but how much. If you order a healthy salad with ranch dressing and cheese sprinkled on it, you might as well order a Big Mac. Please be attentive to your choices.
I look at this picture and I see myself over a year ago. Seriously. I wasn't depressed, but I definitely had Degenerative Joint Disease, Hypertension, Hypercholesterolemia, Pre-diabetes, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and my Quality of Life wasn't too great. When I go see my doctor in May, he's in for a surprise. My knees are healthy as ever, I no longer have sleep apnea, pre-diabetes, and my quality of life has never been better! I'm hoping when he checks my blood pressure and cholesterol this will also be resolved.
So please share this image or blog post, because it truly is important and it could help save a life.
