Spring is coming, but winter is still here. Reminder: Don’t forget to look around and see how beautiful it really is. (The key is just staying warm while you do look around – aka: find a winter coat you LOVE! This is a great time of year to find that coat on sale!)
Reminder: “It is not the years in your life – it is the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
Reminder: Healthy, long-term weight loss is not about 2 to 4 pounds a week. It is 1 to 2 pounds a week.
Perspective: True wellness is about much more than weight. This is about the quality of YOUR Life!
Fact: The BIGGEST killers in the world (in order): 1. Heart Disease 2. Cancer 3. Osteoporosis 4. Hospital complications
Fact: In speaking of what determines morbidity and mortality (disease and death): 10% of factors are unkown. 20% are genetics/heredity 70% are environmental factors. 5 factors YOU have control of: Eating habits, Exercise, Stress, Sleep, and a Health Nerve Supply.
Perspective: Don’t solely focus on weight. FOCUS on doing the best you can do at whatever (eating habits, exercise habits, time with your kid/spouse, work…) you do, and you will never go wrong. That is when you will be making the most of all of your life: not just the years. That is real perspective.
