Let’s Talk About Health!
Many Forms, Many Meanings!
If you are overweight, the first thing that health means to you, is physical well being. Being overweight for a long period of time leads to impaired function of your organs leading to sicknesses that in most cases, could have been easily avoided. That’s just common sense and I don’t need any medical evidence to support the statement – right? Because its just common sense… However, health has many forms and many meanings besides the proper functioning of our body (physical health). There’s healthy thoughts and attitudes (mental health), healthy relationships and interactions with others (social health), healthy finances (wealth health :), healthy habits, to name a few, and they’re all important; all have their place in healthy human existence.
You don’t need to be overweight to be sick – of course, but being over weight long term will contribute to sickness, guaranteed. There can be a lot of reasons for weight gain and lack of weight control, and most of them are tied in some way to our eating, drinking, sleeping and exercise habits, and also to our social and emotional well being. ‘Chicken or the egg’ : weight gain leading to depression or depression leading to weight gain, catalyzed by unhealthy relationships, unhealthy finances, unhealthy habits and routines.
I’m unhealthy! It’s true. Have been overweight for years. I was diagnosed with late onset diabetes mellitus around 10 years ago. I have been through severe depression and anxiety disorder, have medically controlled hypertension and cholesterol. I’m 20 odd kilos overweight at the moment but it has been a lot worse than that. I don’t exercise enough and I don’t eat well enough, and I hate to say it, but its not a nice state of being and how can anyone be happy dealing with it, … but I am. I am fortunate enough to have a beautiful family that, whilst not perfect (myself especially) provide the love and support I need to get through challenges and smile more than I frown. So its not all doom and gloom.
I was raised healthy. My Dad & Mum were mad crazy about health. Dad drummed into all his children “Everything depends upon the right action of the will“. He was right of course. We make our own choices or fall into patterns/habits of behavior that set us up either for health, wealth, wisdom and nobility, or lead us into temptations that may not knock on our door for payment today, but always do in the end. I was raised on a very strict healthy diet and a regimented exercise routine during my early years, so was given every advantage. But, when I found myself facing the world following a very protected, restricted and niched upbringing, I found I did not have the necessary restraint, knowledge, life skills, beliefs, wisdom – to maintain my excellent health. I abandoned the shackles of my hitherto restricted diet in exchange for all the things I’d been denied growing up. My excesses have led to problems. It is a very slow process. Because that first burger, chips, pizza, steak, sausage, beer and wine exchanged for fresh vegetables, fruit and water, didn’t make me ill, I kept doing it. Because that first “I’d rather watch television” decision didn’t result in me waking up the next morning with extra kilos around my tummy, I kept doing it.
The stupid thing about all of this, the weak human in me, is that as well as I know what is healthy and what is not, do you think I can find what I need to make a change, a serious permanent change? It’s ridiculous! Maybe it’s our western lifestyle, I don’t know. Something inside you has to click doesn’t it? I smoked for about 15 years. Tried to give it up more times than I could count, and failed every single time. Knew it was bad for me. Then one day out of the blue, and for no reason I can pinpoint, I just stopped needing them. No gum, no cancer scare, I just stopped needing them, and found I could go months, years, without one. Then I’d meet up with a friend at the pub, have a few drinks and a smoke, and was fine to be without them again for another year or forever… No dependency. Everything in moderation. Go figure! Wish I knew how. Wish I could tell you. Wish I could “bottle it”! But that time I spent smoking, adds to my paranoia when I’m waiting for scan results or blood check results. I knew it was wrong and did not have the necessary “perspective” or “will” to make a better choice at the time. Nice that we do tend to get wiser as we get older, but it is often too late and damage has already been done. There’s still time to make a difference though.
Am I a failure? Yes I am – in some areas of my life – not all. Good to own it. Can’t do anything about it until you do. Nobody I know is perfect but that’s no excuse. I am still around, still hopeful for better health, still learning, still LOVE learning, still love my family and friends and still happy enough to say “my life is a good one”.
When someone offers me a solution to weight loss, that seems legitimate, doesn’t involve a lot of exercise (until I want to) or complicated dieting that I never seems to be able to stick to, I’m interested. So are you. Join our blog discussions on the news panel.
