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.

Carbs. Is there anything more scary

to many dieters?

I, myself am on a low carb diet, but I

am not letting that rule the whole of

my process and weight loss efforts.

There are times when I need or want

something and I get it. I know that  want

as I might at times I either want, need, or

deserve a treat, reward, or fix and I do not

deny myself.  I have however learned to

differentiate a one time thing from a whim.

Keeping goals and priorities present helps

to limit the number of exceptions and that

is always a good thing.

Gang, stay focus remain 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.

The Future In Mind.

IMG_0050.JPG

It is the past that brought us to this present time and situation. Little if anything can be done about the past other than acknowledging that we might have messed up. We allowed the weight to increase. We allowed our health to deteriorate. We might have had a drink or two too many. So lets use the present time to do something about the future. Let’s make sure that our tomorrow is healthier. That our weight is more in line with what we want it to be not what we allowed it to be.

Never forget the past but continue to work on a better future.

The best to you all today and always.

I Am Worth It.


working on me
Back Pain, Headaches, Low Stamina,

Low Endurance, Huge Clothes.

I remember this things all too well and

know that I do not want to go back to them ever again.

This is a journey that has proven to be a lonely one and

I am ok with that because I know that it is not for everyone.

I do not know what is your “WHY” but make sure it is a strong,

valid, significant, and inspiring  “WHY” to you

because that will keep you inspired and on task.

Keep fighting the good fight.

Keep Your Why In Mind.

 

 

Clarity gives strength. Knowing the why will keep us on track when other things try to de-rail our best intentions and desires. Figure out what it is that motivates you and keep it in mind. For some of us is health while for some of us it might be vanity and even for some it is a passion for life. There is no wrong answer just get your answer. Why Do You Do It? Why do you want to loose the weight? And once you know the why keep it ever present to give you strength on the moments that excuses sound good as if they were reasons. Keep focus and keep going. All the best to you all. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

A moment of truth.

DSC_0173That cold, cold shower moment when

we get on the scale.

Great if its good but tough if it is not.

At that moment every bite that went through

our lips comes to mind and makes us smile

or makes us cringe with regret.

We know what we are supposed to do

so let us go forth and make the right

decisions to accomplish our dreams and goals.

Let us take a shower, a shower of success.
