GOALS

New Weight Tracking Form

The importance of GOALS.

Zig Ziglar Once said “With Out A Goal You will Miss Every Shot You Take”

We need something to shot for, and have in our minds a clear idea of what it is that we want, and where do we want to end at in our journey.

I promised on my last post that I would make available to anyone who “Asked” my goals and daily activity sheet, but as I thought about it I decided that I would just make it available on the blog so that I could make it easier for people to see and use.

I ask you to please look at it and if it works for you please by all means use it. BUT, please let me know what you think and maybe., some ideas as to how we can make it better so that we can together help others work on their goals.

Those of us that already had our surgery know that we had an idea, a goal, a dream of who and how we wanted to look at the end. I am not different or better than anyone else so I have made use of every tool I could get my hands on. This form is the result of me wanting to keep that idea clear in my mind, but also keep the accountability where it belonged: ON ME. I wanted to keep the dream alive and present.

If you see the guidelines that have been set for us maybe just like me you will say: “they are out of their bleeping minds”. I did. According to the American Dietetic Association I should weigh at the most 178 #’s being that I a male and I am 6 feet 1 inch tall. Yeah Right.

When I got down to 230 #’s I look like I was sick. Everybody was worried that I had contracted some kind of sickness or something. I felt great though. I think that the main reason I look “not good” was that I was not exercising or doing much activity. Now, I have learned and I want to get to and remain between 200 and 230 #’s. As I have increased my activity level I noticed that my face and body look better. I know by looking at my self and not paying attention to what anyone else says or thinks that I am on the right track.

People, please make sure that you have a goal in mind that is YOURS and no one else. Make sure that you are doing this for YOUR own reasons. Make sure that this process is something you are doing because YOU want it, and answer to YOU and only to YOU.

I have mentioned a picture. The picture that made me decide to take extra measures. I realized that I had let go of me, and I needed to fix me. I needed to bring me back.

I was sick and tired all of the time. I was in the worst shape of my life even though someone told me (trying to be funny) that round was a shape. So here it is.

I thank her for allowing me to post this picture. I do not know who should be more embarrassed, if I for allowing myself to get this big. OR her for being seen with me.

Guys we all have different reasons to do what we do so make sure that you have yours, and that they are important enough for you to always keep in mind and make you stay focused.

I will also add the form and hope that it will be of use to you, and that you will please post a message letting me and others know what it is that you think and how you think we can make it better.

I thank you, and I hope I was of help. The link for the form is at the top of this post.

Choose Wisely.

choice

It is in our decisions that we do or undo our progress.

No one else is in our mind when we have the daily

battle starting with getting up and starting the day.

We are about to start a new year and while I totally

believe that we can make a new beginning in a moment

many choose to use the beginning of the year as a book-end.

Nothing wrong with that but make sure you have a plan.

Make sure your goals are clear and specific.

Make sure you are making the tough decisions.

Let’s pay the price now and enjoy the results later.

Gang. Michael Hyatt from the podcast:

“This is your life” has an amazing product to help

make the new year the best year. If you are interested

on something like that take a look; google him and find out

why he has been a great resource for me and countless others.

Let’s continue to make choices and continue to make progress.

The making of ourselves.

I am going to make

We all come to a point where we must make

some decisions and changes that will have

an impact on the rest of our lives.

Most of the times those decisions come with

challenges and adjustments, we all have the

family member that is happy and content with

the life they are living., that is ok for them but

since we want more and better, we just became

the odd-ball of the family. Do not let that stop you.

Do not let the challenges make you settle for less

than what you are capable of. Keep at it.

stay focus and remain successful.

Focus On The Right Things.

focus on health

It is important to be clear on what we are working towards.

It is important that we keep our hopes and dreams present.

Each dream, hope, goal is personal so make sure you are not

falling prey to group mentality. Take support and accept the

help but also, keep in mind your own goals, dreams, hopes.

It is not about becoming an island, it is about becoming a

success story. It is not about just one thing, but it is about

getting that one thing important to us personally.

Stay focus remain successful.

Feeding the soul.

cooking with love

We must love ourselves enough to take the time

to take care of ourselves and those we care about.

We can show and share love with the meals we cook.

In order to take care of others we must take care of

ourselves. In order to accomplish our hopes and dreams

we must take care of our bodies first.

A meal might not seem so important, but those of us

working on losing the weight, regaining our health,

it is very important. It is center in our day-to-day.

Weight loss is never easy so we must take every single

opportunity that presents itself to make a difference,

even a small difference is important.

Do not forget: Every meal counts. Every calorie counts.

Cooking. The Other Art.

chef shirt

For those of us with a passion for cooking,

and the creation of great meals for us and

our loved ones, the term chef carries weight,

carries passion and a responsibility to the whites.

Those of us with the passion, and a desire to gain

control over our weight it becomes even more

important, and an intrinsic part of our day-to-day.

The knowledge to make a meal low carb, low salt,

paleo, or whatever the current “trend” is makes a

world of difference.

I personally know  that the knowledge has helped

me and others with the battle of the pounds.

I guess my suggestion is: Learn as much as you can

and use it. For the longest time I used to cook once

a week, for the whole week. It helped me stay on track

and I enjoyed that day creating good, tasty, flavorful,

nutritious meals within my diet limitations. My diet

for many years has been: Low fat, Low sodium,

Low carb meals. I really enjoyed grilling meats and

vegetables for my meals.  I also made at least two different

soups enough for 4 meals at least.

Cooking, good cooking is a pleasure. Learn and

take your skills for a spin.

Stay focus remain successful.

Inspiration.

Inspiration.

All I had to do was step outside my living room

and I had all the inspiration I needed.

This did it for me, but the question is what did it

for you?

We are all different and what works for one does not

always works for all.

Figure our gang what does it for you and pursue it.

Make sure that you are always working on your why

and the rest will come up easily. or at least easier.

It is not about money, but more about what inspire

us to go forth and accomplish our dream.

It has been said before by people a lot smarter than me

Find your why and the how will come to you a lot easier.

Stay focus, remain successful.
