I work with a guy and I talk to him about starting sparkpeople and just starting to get with the program for his health, I'm afraid that if he has to chase someone down he will collapse!! But I have found that until the individual is ready it won't matter what advice you give them. They have to want to kick butt and get sparking!!
I'm not saying to rush in and over do it, I'm saying just do it!! Start take one step in front of the other and walk. Your body will hurt and it won't be easy but once you start moving it's easier to keep it going. Also I've talked to him about cutting out junk food at least until he can have it in moderation and make better choices, this again falls on deaths ears.
I feel as a sparker we have a duty to try to help others and tell them about spark people, because alot of times people want to ask how you are doing it but are afraid to ask, make it easy for people to talk to you once they make the decision to begin!!
I see people walking and they are not in shape and the first thing that goes through my mind is " Way to go, yes one step at a time" because that's how we all started one step in front of the other!!
Lets be positive to the people around me and be an inspiration because you never know who's watching!!!
