The importance of GOALS.
Zig Ziglar Once said “With Out A Goal You will Miss Every Shot You Take”
We need something to shot for, and have in our minds a clear idea of what it is that we want, and where do we want to end at in our journey.
I promised on my last post that I would make available to anyone who “Asked” my goals and daily activity sheet, but as I thought about it I decided that I would just make it available on the blog so that I could make it easier for people to see and use.
I ask you to please look at it and if it works for you please by all means use it. BUT, please let me know what you think and maybe., some ideas as to how we can make it better so that we can together help others work on their goals.
Those of us that already had our surgery know that we had an idea, a goal, a dream of who and how we wanted to look at the end. I am not different or better than anyone else so I have made use of every tool I could get my hands on. This form is the result of me wanting to keep that idea clear in my mind, but also keep the accountability where it belonged: ON ME. I wanted to keep the dream alive and present.
If you see the guidelines that have been set for us maybe just like me you will say: “they are out of their bleeping minds”. I did. According to the American Dietetic Association I should weigh at the most 178 #’s being that I a male and I am 6 feet 1 inch tall. Yeah Right.
When I got down to 230 #’s I look like I was sick. Everybody was worried that I had contracted some kind of sickness or something. I felt great though. I think that the main reason I look “not good” was that I was not exercising or doing much activity. Now, I have learned and I want to get to and remain between 200 and 230 #’s. As I have increased my activity level I noticed that my face and body look better. I know by looking at my self and not paying attention to what anyone else says or thinks that I am on the right track.
People, please make sure that you have a goal in mind that is YOURS and no one else. Make sure that you are doing this for YOUR own reasons. Make sure that this process is something you are doing because YOU want it, and answer to YOU and only to YOU.
I have mentioned a picture. The picture that made me decide to take extra measures. I realized that I had let go of me, and I needed to fix me. I needed to bring me back.
I was sick and tired all of the time. I was in the worst shape of my life even though someone told me (trying to be funny) that round was a shape. So here it is.
I thank her for allowing me to post this picture. I do not know who should be more embarrassed, if I for allowing myself to get this big. OR her for being seen with me.
Guys we all have different reasons to do what we do so make sure that you have yours, and that they are important enough for you to always keep in mind and make you stay focused.
I will also add the form and hope that it will be of use to you, and that you will please post a message letting me and others know what it is that you think and how you think we can make it better.
I thank you, and I hope I was of help. The link for the form is at the top of this post.

I agree that goals are important and the more of them the better. The more we can break this journey down into bite sized pieces I feel the more likely we are to succeed. We need a set of short, medium and long term goals. If all of our goals are for the end game we will probably get tired of waiting to reach them and fall off. A football team sets its sight on winning the tournament or being top of the league but knows it has to win each match along the way to get there and besides the matches each week the team has to meet goals day by day, training and motivation. On a micro level the players as individuals need to have goals too, healthly lifestyle, managing sickness and injury. Sometimes the small goals are the building blocks of our success.
When I quite smoking I took it as a morning, an afternoon, an evening at a time later it was a day at a time and then a week at a time and then a month at a time….
We’re on the right path. That’s the most important thing and our first goals should be to stay on it.
