  • Hello Bob, In the past, before H-31 I found it hard to keep on Track with my weight, diet and exercise.The learning experience made the difference. When I start to slip of track on my diet and daily exercise. There are to words or mantra that keep me on target or focus which constantly pop up in my mind., these have been your words, but are mine now, and that is GET SERIOUS.

Ask the Expert with Director of Education, Bob Wright

Q:  I haven’t been participating in a regular exercise program or consuming a healthy balanced diet.  However I have “normal” results for cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood glucose.  What are the effects these habits could have on these numbers down the road later in life?

That is great question,  and it reminds me of guest who I was meeting with recently.  He admitted that he hadn’t been behaving very healthfully and  was very concerned about the results of his blood work. When we reviewed the results he was very relieved that they were not as bad as he had expected.  He took a big sigh of relief and commented that he must be one of the lucky ones whose habits don’t affect his health.  While I was also happy for him that his results were positive, I had to point out that he wasn’t out of the woods yet.

 

With your health, it not only where you are now, but which way are your habits facing you. The fact is, that his lifestyle had not  caught up with him YET, and likely would if he kept living the same unhealthy way. The tendency is to not be concerned about our health until we lose it , then react, and do what we can to get it back. I strongly encouraged him to be proactive and take steps to improve his lifestyle before he developed the risk factors that would show up on his lab work. The best time to get concerned about your health is BEFORE you HAVE to get concerned about your health.
