We all know how hard it is to get in shape and stay in shape. That's why so many of our friends, family and neighbors are obese. There are temptations everywhere to do the wrong thing! Imagine a recovering meth addict that is trying hard not to relapse. Would it be a good idea for them to be around people that are doing drugs? Selling drugs? Obviously not. That's the wrong environment and it will most likely cause them to relapse quickly. For a person that deals with health and/or weight issues, you can see what the environment is for them in our society on a daily basis… fast food restaurants on every corner, candy in every gas station and supermarket checkout line, donuts in every break room, candy and pop machines in every building, and MUCH more. And it's all super cheap and super fast. For example, I took a picture of this sign that was hanging up at a Chevron today:
Break Your Resolution! No wonder it is so tough! That's why what we are all doing as members of BodySpace is so important. We are helping each other to avoid temptation so we will live better, longer, and healthier lives with our families.
