Temptations Come

DSC_0516

At the beach in Rosarito, Baja Mexico

Snacks on wheels.

Yes this is at the beach in Mexico.

If I am at home in Rocky Point or if I am at home in Rosarito

in Baja this candy store on wheels comes directly to you, on the

beach, with all kind of sweet or salty or spicy or any combination

of the three flavors that you can think of.

So if you like me like to get up early and go for a walk on the

beach before your morning coffee to get you started,

avoid this guys not because they are evil but because they

have all the temptations on one supped-up wheel barrow.

All joking aside we must be aware as best as we know of what

is waiting for us outside our door. I know that while in Mexico

I must be aware of the bakery shops. They use Crack in their stuff..

No they don’t but who can say no to a “concha” or an “oreja”, when

you have a great cup of coffee on hand and a whole empty hand

just begging for you to grab a piece of bread or two.

So I go for my walk and immediately take my happy butt back home

and have a good breakfast, then I can contend with the street vendors

and the bakery shop mafia.

The more we know and the better prepared we are the better our

chances for success.

Guys do not forget just how much we have to do to burn 100 calories

Don’t mess it up with empty food or useless fluids. Make every calorie count.

Gang Stay Focused Stay Successful.

On shapes and pounds.

I remember my father saying this to my mom.

Yes, she didn’t think it was funny either.

The reason most of us choose to have WLS

was because we got to a point where we had

to do something.  So to realize that we were round

was a good thing. I know that I flew past 300#’s.

I know that the size on my shirts resembled a

brand of Mexican beer and then some.

I tried it all and then I found the lapband.

The Lapband, while not for everyone it did

work for me.  So if you are thinking about

going through the procedure, make sure you

thoroughly evaluate all the pros and cons as it

is not as some think “The easy way”. Read, ask

questions, find a reputable program with a good

surgeon and a great support program for post-op.

This is not a decision you are to take lightly.

A walk or a run???

The younger version of me used to belong to

a military style health group in Mexico and

routinely run about 15 kilometers.

NOW, I can talk about it but in no way am I

in the physical condition to do even half of that.

I enjoy my crazy, long walks in all kinds of crazy places.

While my walks are not what they used to I still

enjoy the activity and how I feel after I am done.

Whatever your routine is, make sure that you are

doing something you enjoy so you ensure that you

will continue to do it. The only thing I do that I do not

is a leg work out when I am at the gym. Since, at the

present moment I am unable to join or attend a gym,

well I do not much worry about it. Does anyone else

hates leg day at the gym???

Keep At It

don't let.jpg

We all have moments of doubt. Moments of fear.

It is when we move past those moments when the real progress happens.

It is past the doubts that we actually find certainty.

Do not let fear of doubts keep you from achieving what you were meant to do.

Gang: Keep Focus Stay successful.

Embrace The Struggle.

We have all struggled with “The Last 10 Pounds”

or some other version of that.

Challenges for those of us working on loosing

the pounds or reducing the inches is a challenge.

This challenges will prepare us for the occasions

when we lose the battle with the snacks, and the

sheets allowing the pounds to creep up again.

It happens to all and the best of us.

Learn from the process and do not forget that

all the challenges can prepare us for eventual

success. The lapband is a tool and a helping hand

but respect must be paid and rules followed for

results to come-about. Do not forget.

All the best and please remain focus.

Work On Your Passion.

Taking pride and interest on bettering ourselves

must be a center thought, and all the work needed

must be focused to that end.

Trying to please and keep other’s happy more than

working on ourselves is a mistake.

Our weight loss, specially for us with the lapband

is a more important proposition.

Plan your work, work your plan.

Never forget, all yo do will benefit you but also

those important to you.

Stay focus, remain successful.

Earn It.

earn it.jpg

Funny how people forget about their contribution when the results

are less than good, but how fast and permanently they make themselves

part of anything good that has been accomplished by anyone.

The way I see it gang is that we do this by ourselves for ourselves.

Try finding a gym partner and you can spend weeks asking, and in the end

you find yourself going to the gym by yourself. How about this one:

You start a diet program any diet program and everyone and their aunt

have an opinion about said program but as you start making progress

here they are…

Anyway do not forget that you can and should be able to trust and count

on yourself.  Now Go Do It.

Gang Stay Focus Stay Successful.
