Preach it, Tim!
Allow me to join you on the soap box for a moment...
I just spend the last 5 days in and out of the hospital with a friend who has completely ignored his health for the last few years, and is now paying the monitary and physical price for it. His heart condition has deteriorated, he's gained at least 50 pounds, eats the SAD, and drinks heavily... His doctors are prescribing a valve replacement surgery and putting a difib pacemaker in.
/Now/ he wants to fix it with diet & exercise... I'm all for embracing the power of food and fitness, and am happy that this (hopefully) is his true wake up call, but it's past that point for him, the damage is too great.
BUT, it will help after he gets things repaired.
So I'm doing what I do - being a reliable source of information (even if it's counter to conventional wisdom), and leading by example with being consistent, reasonable, and (the one I struggle with ;) patient.
I encourage all of you to do the same.
Take the words “genetic freak” out of your vocabulary and substitute the words “hard working, committed, and focused” and you will have removed one obstacle to doing things you never thought possible. Top Dawg
