Eat Healthy Now, Don’t Pay For Being Unhealthy

Here is a fact:  With a rare few exceptions, once you get so unhealthy you have a disease you will have to eat healthier.

Some people are born with diseases and sickness, and these people probably have to eat healthy and take medication too.

Personally, I have Crohn’s Disease. I was sick in the hospital about a year ago when I started thinking, “I wonder what life would be like if I got a colostomy bag and decided to undergo surgery.” For some, this is their only option. For me, it was one of my options and the easy way out.

At that point in time, I was filled with dread and felt hopeless but it is that thought that made me climb out of despair and take control of my life. I began researching colostomy bags and learned something interesting. If you have a colostomy bag, not only is your life very different and probably embarrassing, but you have to eat healthier! If you don’t eat healthy, your bag can get clogged up in the tubes and cause inflammation and infection.

I don’t know about you, but if I’m going to go through all that embarrassment and daily cleaning of some dumb bag I am going to go ahead and eliminate my bad habits before it gets to that point. I decided that in the hospital, and I climbed out of this despair I had as I realized that getting healthy now is my only option.

It was my best option. I have started this endeavor for myself and I am proud to say I went from a severe case of Crohn’s with all kinds of medication to only one medication.

Now, I have something to say to you. If you are at risk of becoming diabetic or if you have unhealthy habits, change them now. Do it NOW. Don’t wait and pay for your unhealthy decisions later, like a lot of people may do. Take control of your life and be transformed as your physical, mental, and emotional health all see tremendous improvements.

Thanks for reading. I hope that you apply the principle of “changing now” to your life. I hope you see improvements. I hope you at least give it all you’ve got and that you don’t give up.

  1. You’ve been through one hell of a journey and come out of the other side with gusto and determination. I take my hat off to you. I think that a lot of people are unaware of the importance of what goes on inside their gut and the physical/psychological effects of eating poorly. You’ve raised some excellent points.

    I do have a couple of things to add but will come back shortly as I have some fish to cook and it’s that time of day again when I need to eat…..

    • Great! I also want to add that some people may not have as many options as I’ve had and genetics and age play a role, but a lot of people are in my shoes. A lot of people can change things for the better, and those are the people I hope this helps. Also, it’s crazy how sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you can get the determination and drive to climb up to the topz
