Is It OK to Be Fat?

Is it OK to be fat?

First, yes …  some people are obese because they have a legitimate medical disorder.   My heart sincerely goes out to them.  Chances are that’s not you.

If you are obese, it’s likely diet and exercise.  You know this, right?   There are, of course, a number of other causes of obesity recognized by the medical community, but as you can see most of them directly result in changes in diet/exercise patterns.  The intention of this post is to motivate you to consider changing them, not to shame you.

So, is it OK to be fat?

Me too …

I could go on, you know …?

Now, it’s very possible that obesity is not the “cause” of these health issues.  It’s altogether possible that whatever in your life is causing the obesity is also causing the other health issues.  Toe-may-toe toe-mah-toe … The correlation suggests that if you remove the cause of obesity you’ll likely be removing the cause of the other diseases as well.

So, what’s it going to be?  We’re 7 days out before the experiment begins.  Are you in?  Sure, eliminating sugar and alcohol from your diet is unlikely to turn you into a bronzed Adonis, but it’s a start – and we all have to start somewhere.

/* Guilt trip begins here …  */

I don’t know about you, but I have this nagging feeling that we live in a very significant time that will require more from us.  (I’m talking about the pace of technological and social change here … not the Mayans … by the by.)  Don’t we owe it to our loved ones to be ready for whatever is coming?  I do.

I don’t want to just be “fit” – I want to be crazy fit.   Whatever is going to be required of us in this emerging world, surely we’ll be better prepared if we are in our best shape …

Are you in?
