Lifetime Fitness – How to Get Off the Fat Farm and Get Back in the Game
Are you physically fit? Did you just wake up one day, look in the mirror and discover that you had become soft and chubby? Let’s take this a little further. Are you a fatty? Hey, the truth hurts!
This is one of the biggest problems in America today. A person lets themselves go physically, gets fat and then gets there feelings hurt when someone tells them that they’re fat. Of course it’s going to hurt their feelings! But the truth of the matter is that no one is “pleasantly plump” so the only way for a person to be confronted is to be honest about it if they’re overweight. Yes, you may get some tears rolling, but you also may be saving this person’s life because nobody else may have the guts to be honest. Just make sure you’re not being a jerk and break the news gently, but firmly.
The first step an overweight person needs to take is to see a doctor for a complete check-up. This will give them a good idea of how much weight they need to lose, diet plans and fitness programs that they should look into. If a person is morbidly obese then running 5 miles out of the gate is not going to be an option.
Each and every health and fitness plan will be comprised of a variety of concerns and benefits. The concerns draw mainly upon the warning of balancing your diet and exercise properly, without overdoing it. The benefits, as long as the fitness program is maintained in a healthy way, will involve controlling your weight, improving the performance of all of your bodily organs, increasing strength and endurance, strengthening your respiratory system, boosting your immune system, and improving your general mental and emotional well-being.
Once you begin a physical fitness program, try your hardest to stick to it. Remember, the more physically fit you are the more you will get out of life. Who wants to be out of shape and miss some of the best times with family and friends? Sticking to an exercise plan can be a very trying task, but as long as you have the proper motivation, support, and goals, you will be glad that you did. Achieving a lifetime fitness goal is one of the best things that you will ever do for yourself.
