Not Without a Fight!

Sometimes, getting healthy is hard. Sometimes it just plain sucks. There have been times when I've made something that promised to be healthy AND delicious and ended up tasting like yard when I've thought to myself, why? Why can't this just come naturally? Why can't I just eat whatever I want, go for an occasional walk and still look ah-mah-zing in a bikini? This sucks, I'm not doing it. I will just learn to be happy with who I am.

But then I hear this: Heart disease is the number one killer of women. And then I think, I wouldn't ride in a car without a seatbelt. If I'm drinking, I give the keys to someone who isn't. So why would I let a love of nachos take me away from my family? And I decide that I will not go gently into that good night! I will stand up and fight! Because getting healthy isn't just about skinny jeans, it's about continuing to live this amazing life that I've built for myself.

If you haven't already made up your mind to take your life back, do it now. February is Go Red for Women® month, and the Go Red for Women Web site is full of resources about how you can change your life for the better. Fight back - you're worth it!
