Figure it out.


I found this picture by accident and it made me smile.

Just to be clear it is not one of mine.

Few things make me as happy as when I see one of

my kids or someone important to me with a camera

on their hands.

My father was in love of the still image and even though

he never actually did push it further he did get joy of

taking a pic and then sharing them with anyone who

happen to be near by.

I love photography and even though I have had some

success with it I find that there is so much still that I

have to discover and learn.

Gang. We are all different creatures and the things that

inspire us are different. Please, Please look deeply within

and get after it. If you are here you have thoughts of loosing

weight as I and so many others have. But, but there is more,

more to all of us and it would be a shame for “IT” for that

thing or things that are unique for us to go to waste and be

lost because we were not willing to pay the price.

I will not ever say that it will be easy because those things

that are worth it never are easy. But it will be worth it and that

I can say to you with not a single doubt.

Keep the desire to lose the weight but look more and deeply

at you and go for it. Go make it happen.

5c84940072f78e1a658c3866f8f1688fRegardless of the size of the victory

we must celebrate the WIN.

If we lose a pound or an ounce

make sure to celebrate as every loss

is a win, and every win gets us closer

to our goal weight.

Just do not forget that we are all unique

and the rate of loss will be individual to

ourselves. Some people lose easily and

others do not. The main thing is to keep

our goals clear and a top of mind.

Stay focus, remain successful.

Victories And More.


I love it when the scale shows numbers I like.

I like the extra energy.

I like to pull out clothes I had not been able

to wear in a while.

but something that others can’t see

but I feel is that peaceful feeling of

wellbeing, health, strength, and yes

a bit of extra passion.  I do not need the scale

to tell me or show me.

It is not just what we see that we

need to pay attention to. It is also

how and what we feel inside.

Gang stay focus and enjoy what you

have earned. Health, strength, stamina,

endurance, passion, and extra days.

Someone told me once:

“You talk about always doing your walks

as if it was the easiest thing to do. It is

not always easy or practical you know.”

I took this picture on one of my walks

in Espanola, NM. The temperature was

below zero but I still went for my walk.

This does not make me better than anyone

else but it does makes me more committed

to my goals. There are times when I can not

go for my walk for a variety of reasons.

Tomorrow for example due to family

challenges I will not be able to go for my walk

and that is ok. I do not kick myself for it, and

instead I will be over careful with what I will

eat and drink.

I do not believe that we should be slaves to

our schedules but I firmly believe that we

must honor our commitments.

In the end, we can only do the best we can do.

Gang keep your goals and plans ever-present.

3 choices

How often do we re set our goals and expectations?
Our goals must be clear and concise so that as we work with the end in mind the image is clear and inspiring.
But it must also be flexible so we can adjust as our expectations may at times fall short. Inspiration, frustration, desire, etc., will at time make us over reach., we don’t give up or change our goal but in order to continue we adjust. Maybe we change our workout schedule, maybe we adjust our walk distance, maybe we switch our work out days, etc., we adjust but we do not abandon our goals. We don’t abandon our dreams. We don’t abandon Us.
All the success in the world for you. Stay focus Remain Successful.

What Is Progress???

I think that we can all agree how important goals are and how important it is to have an end in mind.
The problem comes when we get so caught in making a goal that we forget about progress.
Yes., we might be intent and committed to a loss of 10 pounds per month but hey 2, 5 or 7 pounds lost IS progress. It is movement in the right direction and we must celebrate because we are wining.
We want the big win. We want the glory of meeting the goal and sometimes we get frustrated when it doesn’t happen. Hey progress is progress and we must acknowledge and celebrate it. AND more important we must use it to keep us on task. progress

Pushing For More.

For so long this was the view from

my living room and I now find that

I took all that beauty for granted.

I now miss it after I sold and now I

am working harder to purchase again

and I know that I will. Don’t know

when or where but I know that I will .

I am writting this at the end of year 2017

and now I am working on goals and plans

that will make this goal closer for 2018.

The thing that matters for us., those of us

on the battle of the pounds is figuring out

what works. Let me tell you something.

I do not know how or when I will get

another property like this one but the

process of getting there is going to be

exciting. I will make it fun as I push myself.

This post will go live sometime in January

of 2018 and I hope that by that time you

are actively working on your goals and


All the best to you gang.
