Whether Fat or Fit, WE Decide the Future

Our lives are full of innumerable choices and it is the accumulation of these choices that is reflected in our present condition. Of course there are confounding factors such as genetics, social support, and financial freedom (or lack thereof) but there is always an element of personal choice that lies within our circle of influence.

Similarly, our society at large is the net product of millions of individuals making personal choices that exert a powerful collective influence. Currently, it seems as though we are on a path towards destruction. We have figured out how to extract energy from fossil fuels and to deposit that same energy on our behinds.

I came across the following infographic and saw this bleak future painted in clear relief.  If we don't act boldly and act now, by 2020 full 1/2 of all Americans will be obese.  The implications of this possible future extend beyond personal health and into the realm of financial, environmental, and national security.

The good news is that we don't have to change the world, we only have to change ourselves.  What will you do then to change YOUR world for the better?  Share your thoughts, ideas, and inspiration in the comments section below this post.
