Ok, Santa's waist line indicates he is at risk for the following health problems.
- type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar)
- high blood pressure
- heart disease and stroke
- some types of cancer
- sleep apnea (when breathing stops for short periods during sleep)
- osteoarthritis (wearing away of the joints)
- gallbladder disease
- liver disease
- irregular menstrual periods (oops! Not Santa... but Mrs. Claus)
Stop kidding yourself.
Give yourself a gift this Christmas
" the desire to be healthy"
If you really, truly believed that eating that piece of candy (See's Candy box that's being passed around at work) would harm your body, you hopefully wouldn't eat it.
But, oh no... we kid ourselves and say... it's only one piece.
But, that's not really true. It's really "one more piece".
If you were at the proper weight, could do 25 push ups without losing your breath, had your cholesterol level within normal limits.... then you could have "just one".
But... if you are in the ranks of the 66% of adults who are overweight in this country then...
YOU'VE HAD YOUR ONE PIECE!
Start early this year. Instead of waiting until January 1st, 2011...... Start now by saying "NO" to the one piece of Candy... a piece of pie.... "a" cookie.
Splurge and delight yourself in pleasing your body
do something your body is "dying" to have....
a Healthy life!
Ok, I too have no "will power"
but we all do have "GOD's POWER" to say NO.
Therefore, speak a scripture to gain strength....
MY VERSION: "greater is He that is in me, than He that is in that piece of Candy!"
1 John 4:4
4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them,
because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
It really does work. Dig deep into your soul and ask the "trillion dollar question"
Why am I trying to satisfy myself with the emptiness of food...
when I have Jesus to satisfy my very being!
The gift this Christmas is the gift you give yourself
