Denial is a powerful force. It's easy to ignore the negative changes of gaining weight as the cumulative effect seems more painful than the individual pounds. A wake up call is a gift - a view through the denial fog, as it were.

A friend of mine, overweight, 36, female, atrocious diet recently survived a heart attack and had a stent put in. It's shocking to hear of someone so young having something like that happen. But it was a wake up call to me too. We shared too many things in common that I had to think, "there, but for the grace of God, go I".

Let something good come from a tragic situation and let it be a reminder of how fragile our lives - and bodies - are.
