Weight Loss for Good - If Only You Had Known?


Whether coming from a close friend, the nightly news or from a letter in the mail, it's hard to face the truth at times. Hear-ing it can really cut to the core of our be-ings.

Today, fitness books are mostly filled with advertisements, pill pushers and un-realistic programs that give people false hope. My intention in this book is to give you real hope and with that you'll get straight talk.

It is not my intention to force anything on you or to come across in a harsh way. While the words may be tough to hear, understand I don't know how else to say what I have observed for all these years. We Americans have been HAD because we have not received the truth about what it really takes to be fit and to stay healthy. Quick fixes abound, but the truth is there are no quick fixes that really work?or that last.

It is my responsibility as a fitness professional to provide you with the facts. And it is my hope that you read this with an open mind and that you understand if you don't do anything about your health today, tomorrow you may say,

"If only I had known."

From my e- book at www.resolutions.bz

IF ONLY YOU HAD KNOWN!

I didn't have much time to pack my bags that day; matter of fact, I'm still wearing the same clothes I put on that morning .I met all three of them on the way up here. They said they would hitch a ride, but they were not sure they would be welcome where I was going.

I thought it was unusual to learn how much they knew about me. Did I meet them at some restaurant my family and I went to? Did I see them at the doctor's office? I know, maybe it was at a bunko party or the golf course? I just couldn't put my finger on how I knew them until today.

It's pretty nice here though-peaceful, always something to do, good conversation. However, I sure miss my family. I wish I didn't have to leave them soon, but how would I have known?

The three of them said they warned me time and time again. How? When? Where? I wondered. I thought I read all the right books and talked to the right people. I even participated at times.

Lazy was probably the one I got along with the best during that short time we spent together. He was the only transparent one of the three. Others might have thought if they saw us together we were twins. We were so much alike.

The other two were much more reserved and timid. Don't let those guys fool you. I learned quickly they were stubborn old boys with rough edges-two of the biggest know-it-alls I had ever met. They called themselves Denial and Pride. And if you ever met them, I think you would agree they were named correctly.

As I crossed the line, I will never forget what they said to me as we raised our hands to each other and waved goodbye, "If only you had known."

The health of America is going to get worse before it gets better. Diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, heart disease-are all at epidemic levels. And for the first time in history the kids of today are projected not to live as long as there parents have. The only way for the health of America to get better is for all of us to be personally responsible, change our attitudes toward exercise, and support one another in the process.

The silent threesome of denial, pride, and lazy has been muted by the fantasy fitness land programs promises immediate results. This silent treatment is killing you from the INSIDE OUT.

Until a few years ago, it was thought that Americans were healthy. Of course, that's not true. We've had a health problem for years.

We have had a head problem, too. Most of us think that by ignoring them, our bodies will miraculously get better. Doctor's saw this coming, but what did they do about it? My doctor's answer was, "Take two pills and call me in the morning." (Sound familiar?)

THE BUCK STOPS WHERE?

In the "good years," more money, more marketing and more-for-me attitudes enabled us to focus on making the big bucks. It allowed us to put off worrying about healthy bodies. The accent was on NOW and not later. But the fiscal wealth we accumulated years ago is NOW being drained by our physical healthcare costs. Eventually, our bad health will consume all the extra dollars we worked so hard to earn.

Some of the responsibility falls with the big corporations, insurance companies and hospital groups. But at the end of the day, the buck stops with YOU. The reality of this situation bites; however, the solution is not to ignore it, but to encourage people to embrace it. Many of you have either given up on yourself or just flat out are living in denial. Either way the choice is still yours. The fact of the matter is there is still hope for America and there is still hope for you, too.

Don't let the buck stop with you. If you don't know what to do, ask people like me to help.
