Wow!! I actually thought a Company had come up with an ethical and good idea until I got to the second paragraph!!
Never give up, never quit, never surrender
You only fail when you stop trying
There is nothing to hold you back except you.
You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.
The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

We have BC/BS of Michigan and haven't heard of them doing any campaining like that. But you'd think insurance companies would be better informed instead of offering coupons for foods people really need to stay away from. I know WW items are better than some but still it's not the best choices an insurance company should offer in coupons.

I also find things like that irritating. We dont have that company is South Africa, but often we have free give-aways and its never a coupon for a free bag of butternut. And the books always have give-aways too that never include anything healthy. Wish they were serious about helping folks get healthy. Its true what Dr Phil says "the system is out to get us"
I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

Wow that is just beyond bizarre! I have BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois and they are also doing a campaign of healthy eating and living but no coupons related to anything that is mentioned in your e-mail. In fact they are giving us free access to dieticians that we can talk with via e-mail or chat online with.
Now it makes you wonder if Anthem Blue Cross is being sponsored by those companies?

Sorry, I was told that I couldn't post the full article as it was a no-no. I don't have the link anymore so I'll just take it out.
