When it is too late to start exercising and eating healthy, some people say never - however, I disagree with that. I think it would be hard to do that when you are 6 feet under because you never started eating healthy and exercising. But, as long as you are still breathing, it is not too late.
If you are overweight, it makes life much harder, getting up and down, walking anywhere, much less trying to exercise. Out of the corner of your eye, you see people staring and whispering. They might as well go ahead and point too.
The best time to start an exercise program and eating healthy is when you are young. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. As a person gets older, that old saying, "It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks." is very true but not impossible. For whatever reason, people tend to be less active.
At any age, a person should and can improve their way of eating and getting some kind of exercise. You don't have to and should not quit eating. If you do that, you might dry up like a prune. Learning a new way of eating and enjoying new foods, with a friend or group, is a good way to lose weight.
Walk with a friend 2 or 3 times a week. Start off walking short distances and increase it a little at a time. You'll be surprised how much better you begin to feel each day. Between eating healthy and exercising, you'll feel like a new person in no time, and life will be better and easier.
Soon those same people who were staring and whispering will come up to you and say, "Don't I know you, you look so familiar, but I just can't place you?" And you will smile and say, "You must be mistaken, that was another person."
Start today with your new way of life; you're going to love the way you feel.
