Words to ponder...

Thursday, January 10, 2013

My guilty pleasure is watching the Biggest Loser. That said, I heard something that resonated with me and wanted to share. Dr. H was talking to one of the contestants about his weight issues. He pointed out how dangerous his weight is and that he needed to take the time to address it. In speaking to this contestant he said something along the lines of this,

"If you had cancer, you would take the two hours a day to go thru treatment, right?"

It was a light bulb moment for this individual. Point, invest the time in yourself today to make sure there are many more 'todays' to share with your loved ones.

    Thanks! That was really helpful. I hope I remember it when I'm finding excuses to eat cookies or not tie on my sneakers.

    I love the Biggest Loser too. I caught that and thought it was profound. You are exactly right. I always think of exercise and eating right as an ounce of prevention...which beats a pound of cure.
