Temptations Come

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.

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.

Expectations.

I hate it whenWe must decide what it is that we want, and once we do that

take the steps to accomplish it. Not any easier but clearer.

We live in an “Immediate satisfaction” society that has no patience

for planning, and organizing but even less for consistent

on-going daily work.

WE, however understand that our commitment, planning,

and consistent work will provide us the success needed to

support the next round of battles.

Gang, we know that it is not the easy but the consistency where

the success lies.

Let us keep going so that we might continue to be examples

to those observing us, those wanting to attain some of the

same success nectar. Continue to be an example.

Continue to put the work needed.

Let us all continue to make progress, daily progress.

To our achievers: Please share the love and

pass along the post on any or all of the media

platforms below. Thanks.

Don’t You Quit!!

crawlingBecause quitting is not acceptable

we plan our work and work our plan.

We look into the future through our dreams

and hopes and we know what the value

of our weight loss is.

We want to live a longer, healthier

life and we want it to mean and stand

for something.

Gang. Let us not forget our dreams

and hopes., let us continue pushing and

working as all of our hard work and

diligence will show up in a better quality

of life that we get to share with our

loved ones.  (whether they want it or not 🙂 )

Don’t quit, Don’t ever quit.

Success A Simple Approach.

S U C C E S S This is as good a KEY to success as any other I have ever seen.

I guess we continue with the theme of simplifying the process.

I like the way that things come together when we pay attention

to detail, and the little things.

It has been an eye opener to me ,having someone going right behind me

looking at what I am doing and how I am doing it.

It is a pain in the ass because she is also paying attention to

the things I am failing to do, but it is making me better as I progress

and move along the road to a better me.

Darren Hardy on his book the compound effect talks about

the benefits of tracking, and while I understood the concept

it was not one of my practices. Right now with the direction and

help of my Coach, I am getting much better at the whole tracking

thing, and I have found where I was paying a silly fat tax on some of

the calories I was consuming. Tracking has also helped me find

time that I can use to work on some of my other projects, and I have

another book almost ready to go to my editor.

Ok gang let’s continue to work on our better selves and

keep on keeping on.

What We Want To Be.

Weight loss is so much more than the way we look., it is also the way we feel and the way that we are perceived not just by others but by us as well.
We each have an idea an image of who we are and what we look like under the perfect circumstances but, we know that the perfect circumstances are seldom present.
Does that means that we settle or that we give up? No! it means that we continue to work at it and maintain the goal and the dream alive. We do this with our daily work and the image ever-present in our minds and hearts.
We fight with the tools and weapons that we each have at our disposal. We use the fork at the table and our legs in our walks. Exercise and diet. Patience and understanding. We use the knowledge that others have and so freely give to us by reading and acting on what other bloggers share.
I am so grateful to all of you that read what I write and the blogs that I follow. It reminds me that I am not alone and that in the end and in different ways we are not alone. We are all in this together.
I wish we could track the pounds that we are all loosing. Pound by pound we are making an ever-increasing dent on the mountain of pounds in front of us.
I thank you and wish all the success that our hard work deserves.
We are doing it.
Keep up the good work and throw yourself at it. Today. Tomorrow. Always.

We are not losers unless we quit. There are no losers here.
