You’ve most likely heard that Oklahoma has a weight problem. You may even have one of your own. If so, you aren’t alone by any means.
Obesity is the visible, unfortunate outcome. What gets us there is what really has a grip on our state and our country.
We’ve become too lazy, the experts say. We aren’t concerned about physical fitness. And, we’ve become too lax in our efforts at eating right.
Let me rephrase that. We don’t work on eating right.
Of course, there are those who do exercise, eat right, get the right amount of sleep, cut down on stress and live happy, energetic, successful lives.
I know they’re out there. I’ve seen them in commercials and printed advertisements. Those ads don’t lie, right?
For the rest of us, there is an ongoing battle to do better, or a surrender to those factors that ultimately will shorten our lives.
Don’t expect a lecture from me on being fit and healthy. I’m in that battle myself, as are many people I work with, am related to, or simply know.
These battles are complicated, of course, when other health issues enter the picture. Not everyone can participate in an active, strenuous exercise program. Others have to eat certain foods.
I will admit, however, that there are things anyone can do to improve.
