Well, I see this thread may take off-tangent posts & I believe the OP was just providing insight into being a bit more self-aware on ones' personal actions & the results of neglect or carelessness.
At 66, I've lived a very simple philosophy regarding safety & taking care of myself I was taught as a child growing up by my parents & "old world" grandparents. Their lesson was: "The Good Lord gave you only one body with all functioning parts....what you choose to do that jeopardizes any of those parts is YOUR fault." Quite simple, isn't it. All you have to do at any time is, when you get out of the bath or shower, stand naked & look at your body & think about the value of each of those parts. Ask yourself, "Do I like what I see in the mirror?" "What parts are valued the most?" "Do I do enough to protect them?" Then answer yourself. Remember, you only get ONE! That's it!
I believe Steve(7A749) summed it up concisely. I only add some "food-for-thought".....not food-for-more-body-fat. Only you put the value on your body & all the parts.....nothing more....nothing less.
