Inform Yourself.

What is a Lap Band or more appropriately

a gastric band? Well… It is a tool that some of

us with a chronic weight problem have obtained.

It is a medical device that when used correctly

assists with a reduction of food consumed.

Anyone who is considering this as an option

must not only educate themselves but they

should absolutely sick professional assistance.

There are many programs and I will NOT here

recommend any one specifically, I will however

recommend that you find a surgeon that has lots

of experience. My surgeon was by far one of the

biggest assholes I have ever met but, but he had

more experience than all the others combined.

As a result I was in for surgery at 10 or 9 AM, and

by 1 PM I was at the market buying soup to take

home with me for later. I was given pain medicine

and I have to say I needed none of it. I was told that

I would be out of commission for at least a week, but

I was back with my regular life in 3 days.  I was going

crazy with the lack of activity.  Please note that this

was my experience and yours or anyone else’s might

be significantly different.  I had a great surgeon but

a crap support program. (I am sure it was my fault)

Considering this or any other WLS??? Inform yourself.

Make Time For YOU.

Make time for itWe need to be about it now just talk about it.

It is easy to talk, but it is in the doing that

the changes and progress  happen.

For those of us with the Lapband® the process

needs adjusting a bit. We must drink the water,

measure our portions, take our vitamins, always,

always remember to take our meds, chew twice as much,

remain active with the support groups.

For those that think that getting a lapband or any other

Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) makes things easier

we have some news: It Doesn’t!

Regardless we are all in this together so:

keep on keeping on.

Success will come to those that stay focused.

Truth And Reality.

One does not justCrazy how simple the truth sounds.

Hard as hell some times but always well worth it.

People think at times that those of us with a lap band

have an easier go at it but they are wrong as any one

with Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) will quickly tell you.

We must pay as much attention if not more to what we

eat, how we exercise, how much we chew, the amount

of water we drink, the way we take our meds, the extra

vitamins that we need to take, and on, and on, and more.

Regardless the temptations are there and there are real.

The desire for sweets or an extra portion of food is just

as real as it is for anyone else. WE just have an extra tool.

Never forget that a tool in order to be of help must be

used or it is irrelevant.

The decisions we make have an impact and we must

be ever vigilant as we can be as weak as anyone else.

One thing that we should do is always keep our goals

and dreams ever-present because that is the only

way that the what becomes more possible.

Never stop. Keep trying and continue to work on

your goals. Weight Loss, more money, a better relationship,

anything you want is possible if you pay the price.

Keep it present, keep it real, keep it possible.

Weight loss just like most things in life

are affected by our way of thinking.

If you think that weight loss is of importance

then do not allow for your thoughts to have

so much power that you do nothing.

Weight loss is one of the most valuable

projects and activities in that, it will have

a real and direct impact in your life.

Health, longevity, energy, vitality, strength,

and for those of us with the lap band it is

to a point a matter of life and death.

If you need inspiration and are into podcasts

let me recommend one that has tremendous

value for me: Every Day is Saturday by a very

real and honest guy Sam Crawley. I listen daily

but specially when I need a little bit of inspiration.

Don’t tell him I send you there because he does

not know me just enjoy the message. He is on

iTunes if you have apple products but I listen to the

show on Stitcher since I am a Galaxy Fanatic.

Gang let’s keep on keeping on.

About Champions.

champions believeEvery Day we need to re-enforce in our mind and heart

the why we are doing what we are doing.

We need to keep ever-present the dream and the goal

and with that, the confidence, strength, and believe will push us

to accomplish the little, mundane, and at times boring

steps that will transform our dreams and goals into reality.

If it is a million dollars or a certain weight it is by planning

and executing the little steps that the GOAL is reached.

Gang., we must keep putting one step in front of the other

and eventually we will reach our goal.

Believing in the possibilities I wish you all the best.

The Weirdness Of Vegas.

The amazing fountain at Bellagio’s

in Las Vegas.

This is my wife’s favorite place to start and

end our visits to Las Vegas.

This is the only place where I carry two

bags instead of only one.

I usually only carry my camera bag but,

when we are walking the strip I carry my

camera bag and my small carry on ice chest.

Only two items either Guinness or Miller Lite

and Mountain Dew for the Queen.  My girl

must have Mountain Dew on hand at all times

or she turns into something somewhat

resembling one of my Exe’s and that is

NO BUENO.

Have you been here? It is a fun place and

for someone like me with a passion for

photography well there is never a shortage

of characters or beauty to record.

Hey if you have not been here what the

hell are you waiting for. Come and be weird

with us.

Mirror, Mirror.

Oh C’mon.

funny mirror

We ALL have at some point

looked at our selves on the

mirror and rolled our eyes in

serious disgust.

The thing is to make sure that

we acknowledge the moment

and we go do something to fix

the issue. If we don’t then we have

a bigger issue.

Gang the changes needed are

all possible but only if they are

important to us.

Stay focus remain successful.
