Ok this is strange how this came to me. Everyday I watch some sort of television. On nearly every channel you see commercials, news briefs, educational programs, food, ect. I at first never paid any attention to this. I watched the celebrities shrink before my eyes and thought "Yea, if I had a million dollars I would be able to afford Jenny Craig and a personal trainer to." But recently I had started nursing school. One of my favorite subjects I have been recently studying is nutrition.It is astounding what you learn about diets truely. I decided to live better. Don't get me wrong I can afford to lose 10 or 20 pounds but what would actually work? I ended up renting the fantastic documentary "Super Size Me". I could not believe how unhealthy our society has become. Let alone what I learned throughout the movie. I was on a mission. I gathered up all my facts about each "diet" that has been or is popular and the information I received from class. I came up with this. Everyone wants to just eat wrong and slim fast. The do not understand. Our world is so fast paced that we just want to be able to take a magic pill, eat only certain foods, drink this special drink and look like a super model...in a week. But without moving. I was determined to do simple changes to my diet and see how just changing simple things in my diet ( water instead of soda, baked potatoe instead of fries, low fat milk, whole grain, ect.) and ADDING exercise would effect my health and weight. My findings have been outstanding!Just in 2 weeks I had dropped 10 pounds. Thats when I wanted to start a "War on Obesity! Our city has 3 health clubs but where is the motivation? It is a relatively rural community and I can't see very many people spending money on a gym membership when they have daycare, rent, and groceries to buy. I want to start a free excercise program for my community.
