“Our bodies are apt to be our autobiographies.” Frank Gillette Burgess
It’s true, we get but one body in life. It is a gift for us to manage for a lifetime.
So, what is the pulse of our country’s health? By any measure America’s health is failing miserably. We spend far more on health care than anyone in the world and we are one of the least healthy nations in the world. More than two thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, and more than 15 million of us have diabetes.
We fall prey to heart disease and cancer at a higher rate than any country in the world largely due to our unhealthy lifestyle choices. Almost half of our people walking the streets of America are prime candidates for heart disease, stroke or some form of cancer.
What is heartbreaking is that America’s kids are the first generation in history whose life span is ten years less than their parents due to our fast food habits and lack of exercise.
It’s time for us to embrace a healthy lifestyle!
Remember, your body is a priceless gift! You only get one for a lifetime. It’s unique, it’s one of a kind, and it’s yours to take care of the rest of your life.
Bottom line – only one person is accountable for making the necessary changes, and that someone is YOU. Join me in a movement to make America FIT FOREVER one person at a time!
