Battling Obesity through Commitment to Lifestyle Change


Overcoming obesity through lifestyle change!

In viewing all of the post on numerous social media platforms concerning the challenges associated with becoming more fit, I decided to put away the technical vernacular in order have a real heart-to-heart with my readers. When I launched the National Campaign against Obesity in 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had officially declared obesity to be an epidemic. With nearly 40 percent of American adults and 17 percent of minors being declared as obese, the crisis had developed a powerful momentum that was impacting the health of this nation is a way that it has never experience before. The trend has continued.

The Force of Obesity

There is no plague or epidemic in the past that has claimed as many lives as obesity. Hundreds of thousands are dying annually to illnesses, diseases and conditions that are preventable, and in most cases — reversible. Obesity is associated with a number of serious and potentially deadly conditions such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, several forms of cancer, osteoarthritis, stroke, infertility issues in women and more. In simple, this disease is killing people at an alarming rate.

When I observe the excuses rendered for failure to appropriately address the issue of obesity, I am simply flabbergasted. There is every reason in the book not to engage the issue. Lifestyle change is required in order to effectively overcome obesity with sustainable results. Honestly, the failure to effectively deal with obesity is inextricably bound to the secular paradigms in this culture that drive people to seek instant gratification without any investment or commitment to the cause. Everyone wants something right now, but they are not willing to commit to the changes that are necessary to see true transformation.

Transformation, in any facet of your life, begins with commitment to seeing the process through. Change is a process. In fact, life is built on the principle of process. Anything that you want to accomplish must be accomplished through the conduit of process. Far too many people are seeking to achieve or attain certain things, but are intent on circumventing the process. Obesity has such a powerful grip on America because of the lack of commitment and an insatiable desire for a quick fix. There is no quick fix for authentic transformation. There is no circumventing the struggle of process to obtain the reward of transformation and elevation. Life does not reward the uncommitted with its most valuable and coveted achievements.

There are millions of dollars being spent on designer handbags each year by people who will say that they cannot afford to invest in a trainer or workout program. There are some serious issues at play in a mindset that places fashion before health. When there are literally ways to combat all the diseases listed here and more through natural means, beginning with becoming more fit, why is it that obesity still reigns in America? When a better quality of life is within your grasp, there must be a commitment to obtaining it, regardless to the difficulty associated with the process through which it must be attained. ~ Dr. Rick Wallace
