Waking UP.


actually. i just woke up

It seem that as of late I have been asked way too many times:

“What Made You Decide To Change?”

One day, I just decided that no one person or no one situation

would ever have so much power over me.

I decided that those friends who continually tell you I will pray for you

but never offer you a coin when broke or a piece of bread when hungry

have no true and vested interest on us.

That if it had to be it was up to me, therefore I promised my self never to

ask another “Don’t let go of me.”

That I am worth it not because of me but because of the one who created me.

I realized that I wanted and deserved a better, longer, healthier and happy life.

That a failed relationship did not preclude me from finding love again.

That having been overweight did not mean that I was to stay that way.

That loosing my position, and wealth only meant that I had something else coming.

That there would be someone who would take and accept me as I was, and to whom

my struggles and challenges would not be a deal breaker as they made their presence felt and,

carried some of the load and at times all of the load so that I did not have to face the world alone.

Because I had those that did pray but, they did not pray for me…They prayed with me.,

a lot has changed and my life now reflects it.

NO. Prayer in any form is not bad or unwelcome, but I remember what my parents taught

all of us as kids: after we pray on our knees we get up and go and pray with our hands, feet

and backs so we can do our part in making ours and other people’s miracles a reality.

I am thankful., oh so thankful for the many kindness I have received during the last couple of years.

I know that I have a purpose and if I have a day or a hundred years

I will work every day and in some way re-pay all that was given to me.

I want more. I want better.

I want health, wealth and a family

And that is why my prayer is never for things to be given to me,

or for life to be easy, and not even for many friends.

All I ask from GOD is for my loved ones to be healthy and safe,

and for me, Peace of mind.

With that I can and will take care of the rest.

Gratitude.


always something to be happy about

I hope you are all ready for Turkey Day.

Easily the day when we are most likely to over do it with the eating

and the drinking so let’s be aware of what goes into our pay-hole.

Gang It is The Sunday prior to Thanks Giving Day and there is something

always to be grateful and thankful for. I am grateful for the opportunity

I have to share with each and every one of you and I thank you.

Please know that you all will be in the prayers of this imperfect believer.

All the best to you and yours today and always.

Have A Great Thanks Giving Day.

More To Life.


904e03b8a0610d88ff54729a80546fe4
Last year around this time I hit us rather hard

with the whole goal setting thing and, I still think

that it is most important. BUT I also want to say

that life is more than just working out and worrying

about our weight. It is more than counting calories

and evaluating water characteristics.

Gang there are friends and family and hobbies and

countless books that also require our attention.

I was looking at my e reader and I have about

400 books. (yes amazon loves me) I noticed that

I had 46 book in progress meaning I had started

and had not gone back to as of yet.

I Love Photography. A lot., and if I could I would

hit the trail with my camera and just hit the shutter.

I miss quiet times with a good book and the

walks on the desert or trails up in the mountains.

We have to be about more than just weight loss.

Yes let’s try to be healthy always but let’s also

remember to be present in the moment.

Hey gang if you have any pictures that you feel

particularly proud of would you send them to me

I love to look at other folks pictures.

You can see many of my pictures at my Weebly

photo blog at:  www.josegosuna.weebly.com/

A couple of things for you to know if you are going

to that blog 1.- Please bring your sense of humor

2.- Not all the pics there are mine. 3.- If something

offends you please just move to the next item.

But really there are some great materials there.

If you go there the first photo you will see is of me

so if you are brave enough go check it out.

Again if you would like to share some of your pics

Please send your pictures to me privately at:

lapbandformen@gmail.com or you can share

them publicly here at the blog.

I thank you very much and hope that

we are serving and entertaining you.

Self Love.

Why we do what we do? I had to learn that while it was ok to continue to give to others and of my self., I had to find love to and for myself. It is not an egotistical journey but an adventure of discovery and self realization. I celebrate a pound lost or a size reduced. I am happy for an inch and happy for a ounce. I am happy to be doing better. Celebrate you progress. Because I am sure you will agree that not going back is progress in and of it self. Staying at the same weight for a long time is an issue but from one week to the next it just means that you were able to deal with cravings and temptations. Just Do Not Go Backwards. OK gang today as always I wish you all the best of the best. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

MAGIC DIET PILL !!!!!

What is the most important thing for weight loss?? Diet, Exercise, Activity, Attitude? It is all equally important I have found but, if there is something that I have seen make a difference in many of the people that I have known is the fact that they were committed. There are many experienced and educated persons like me out there that regardless of the knowledge and experience failed at the weight loss game. I trained people on weight loss and therapeutic diets so I knew better and yet I failed consistently. It was the lack of commitment to the weight loss that kept me from realizing my goal. Well Gang here it is the magic weight loss pill. Hope it helps. All the best to you all. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

share with the rest of us. I know that I would appreciate it.

I have a weight goal and it inspires me. I have a dream of wearing the same size pants that I used before I got married back in 1986. But I also am smart enough to know and notice how well my body works as I loose the pounds. The extra energy and stamina. I notice how I can sleep better and even breath better. I love that my back pain almost disappears and the purple color on my feet and ankles goes away. So yes a pounds goal and a size in clothes is nice but for me I have to say feeling so much better in my own skin is truly priceless. Find your why and rock on with your bad self!! Jose G.

You Have The Power!

you have the power

We have a God-given right to choose.

Our decisions impact our life and that of those around us family and friends.

All of the little and seemingly insignificant decisions we make day in and day out

have the cumulative power to change and affect our lives.

There is a book titled the compound effect by Darren Hardy Publisher of Success Magazine.

In it Darren shows us the power both negative and positive that each and every decision

we make, can make a difference on the quality of our life.

The extra glass of wine, the fun size chocolate packet, or the extra serving of ice cream

can add up to significant calories, grams of carbs, grams of fat whatever you want to track.

BUT, just as well taking the extra steps by parking a little farther, drinking an extra glass of water,

walking just a little extra, adding a set to our workout, using mustard instead of mayo, etc.

has an effect. What will it be? The positive or negative?

We have the power to decide, we have the opportunity to change our tomorrows and,

by doing that change our life.

Use your power for good., for good longer living.

Gang as always all of the best for you all.

DNA the history of us.

DNA MAPThis is the picture that my DNA paints.

I have to say it is nothing like I was expecting

based on what my family shared. Not good or bad

just unexpected.

This picture as extensive in time and depth is

but a tiny part of what me, you, us are.

The day to day life we construct tells more

about us than any DNA test could. What is the

fiber of our character, what are the values we

live-by, how important family and friends are.

And there is so much more. Here we talk about

weight loss and health a lot but at the same time

I make it a point to acknowledge life and living.

Regardless of where we came from the fact remains

that we are trying to effect change and by making

better choices we might live longer, healthier lives.

Gang, stay focus and remain successful.

A Good Bye.

 

The passing of a Friend or Friends.

Not too long I found myself at the lake of Davis Dam and

I realized that  it was going to be a bad day.

You see… My sandals that have been with me up and down the Caribbean

had seen their last day in the sun. Why is a pair of sandals so important??

Well it was a present from someone who would never again give me

even a glass of water. On top of that I have trekked up and down the

Pacific cost from South of Seattle all the way to Cabo, and the Atlantic

coast from North Carolina to the tip of Florida passing through South Carolina,

Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, California, Arizona,

Nevada, Sonora, Mexico. Sinaloa, Mexico. Baja, Mexico. Chihuahua, Mexico. St. John, VI,

Aruba, Barbados, Puerto Rico, etc, etc.,

I think you get the point.

I wish I had a Human Friend to have gone with me. None the least I will

miss my sandals.

Where have your travels taken you lately?

Let’s make life about getting better and enjoy what we have in front of us.

It is about living life to the fullest.

I gave my sandals a watery grave and went back home bare footed.,

floating on a cloud of memories. About 10 years of memories.

To Us. To Living.

The Making Of Us.

This is true in more ways than one.

One of the best ways to ensure that goals are met

is to write them down. Also, it makes dreams and goals

more real, and present while making them significantly

more attainable. Your life is worth recording so invest

on a journal and see your life transformed.

Do not skip steps. Write that which is important and

relevant to you in life and see it become your reality.

On Changes.

diaper dietWE are the only ones that can truly impact our diet.

It requires change and a bit of desire.

If you had WLS you know you have made the investment

already, so why not use the tool you purchased?

Follow the guidelines, drink the water, measure the food,

take your meds, and make sure you are taking your vitamins.

Not rocket science even though at times it feels like it.

And, if you add activity and exercise you just turbo-charged

the program. so hang on and keep rocking it.

Very, Very Personal Post.

498 (1)

If for just an instant God would forget that I am but a puppet of time and would bestow

upon me the gift of a chunk of life., I would use that time fully.

Probably, I wouldn’t say all that I think but I would definitely think about all that I say.

I would give value to things not because of what they are worth but because of what they mean.

I would sleep very little but I would dream more. I understand that for every minute we close our eyes

we lose sixty seconds of light.

I would walk while others stop, wake up while others still sleep.

If God would give me a chunk of life, I would dress modestly, lay face up to the sun uncovering

not just my body but also my soul.

To men I would show how wrong they are in thinking they stop falling in love when the grow old

without knowing that they grow old when they quit falling in love.

To a kid I would give wings but let him learn to fly on his own.

To old folks I would share that Death doesn’t arrive with old age but with abandonment.

So much I have learned from men.

I have learned that everyone wants to live a top the mountain not knowing that true happiness

comes in the challenge of the climb.

I have learned that when a newborn squeezes  with his tiny hand his father’s finger

he is trapped forever.

I have learned that a man only has the right to look down on another man when he is

helping him stand up again.

It has been so many things I have learned from all of you but really it will not be of much

use because when I am placed in that big suitcase I will already be dying.

Try to say always what you feel and do always what you feel deep inside your heart.

If I knew that today would be the last time that I will see you sleep, I would embrace you tightly

and pray to God  to allow me and be the  guardian of your soul.

If I knew this would be the last minutes I would see you I would tell you ” I Love You”

And don’t assume foolishly that you knew already.

There is always another tomorrow and life gives us another chance to mend things.

But if I am wrong and today is all we have left I would like to tell you “I Love You and I will never forget you”.

Tomorrow is not assured to anyone, old, young. Today could be the last time you see those you love.

Because of that: Wait no more. Do it today because if tomorrow never comes you surely will lament

the day that you did not take the time for a smile, an embrace, a kiss, the day when you were so busy to grant one last wish.

Keep those you love close to you, tell them to their ear how much you need them. Love them and treat them well.

Take time to say “I am sorry”, “Forgive me”, “Please”, “Thanks” and all the loving words that you know.

No one will ever remember you for your secret noble thoughts. Ask God the strength and wisdom to express them.

finally, Show your friends and loved ones just how much they matter to you.

Strength.

a person who fallsSince we will all fall “eventually”

we might as well plan on learning.

A fall, mistake or lesson is only bad

if we learn nothing from it.

We must remember that either we earn

or we learn. YES it is a win, win so don’t

let fear of failure keep you from trying.

We are on this together so if I can be

of any assistance reach out, write me at

Attitudes.

1457712_735144046514425_1918118794_nThis is the attitude we need

when dealing with negative, insensitive,

ignorant people.

It is human nature to allow others to

have influence in us.

If “they” are not walking day by day

in our shoes with our ups and downs,

our challenges and battles., their opinions

mean only what we allow them to be worth.

Don’t give-up that much power to anyone.

And to my friend in the Carolina’s I say

You can do it, you are worth it, YOU DESERVE IT.

Eventually Good Things Come.

GOOD THINGS COME TO

I am happy to report that the last of my writing works is now finalized, approved, published and for sale at Amazon.
The first of a series of works on diverse topics ranging from food and cooking to life and living and I even tried to write about relationships but being that I am no expert on that department I quickly changed my mind and changed course.

Anyway…. My titles “El Sabor De Mi Mexico.” The Flavor Of My Mexico and “Sonoran Style Soups” By Yours Truly Jose G. Osuna has seen the light of day. This is a collection of original and authentic Salsa’s and soups made with nothing but fresh ingredients for those of us trying the whole “Clean Eating” but full of flavor for those looking for original flavors and textures.

It should have been done a long time ago but so many challenges got in the way health, geography, economical, worst health, etc., Regardless that was then and this is now. I hope you would please take a look at it and I welcome any ideas, criticism, opinions, improvements in particular just keep it original and authentic.

I am grate-full. I am so grate-full.

Jose G. Osuna

always something to be happy about

True Friends.

This is my Ferret. His name is “Beast”
Beast became ill. Beast is unable for the most part to procure food and water for himself even if it is placed in close proximity. I have to puree his food as he is unable to deal with it on his own.
He became ill very suddenly and it kills me to see him unable to move. I have a background in health care (human) and I try to keep him going. I do the range in motion with him. I give him baths as often as he allows. You see ferrets have a strong distinctive smell to them but are very peculiar and clean in their habits. I know that he does not like to be dirty. I am so glad that he has a true friend like me and NOT like those I thought were my friends. He would have been ignored and abandoned as soon as he became sick and unable to be as expected.  Anyway I just wanted to introduce him to the world. You know he was the best hunter, Most playful, Good wrestler. A real catch. I hope he will get better. Please gang keep The Beast in your thoughts and I wish you all the fortune of having True and Real Friends.

image

This was a great deal for me. He lives by that towel but in months I have not seen him drink water on his own. He is so stinking cute.

I re post this to let you all know that The beast is now fully recovered and up to all his behaviours of the past. I love watching him run around and continue to be great. As I was playing with him today I came to tears of joy. If only our friends would always stand beside us. A coin, a bite, a word of support, a promise kept.

Never forget gang look for friends but start by being a true friend.

Gang.. The work does not stop because of the weekend.

Stay focused and continue to do the right things even add something new.

Adding even a little activity every day compounds the calories burned.

Drinking more water helps with the expulsion of impurities.

Starting a new routine would get you out of a rut.

What will we decide. I truly don’t know but I know that it is

after a whileWe make decisions on daily basis., some are easy and

some are NOT.

Evaluating the people, decisions and circumstances that

made us who and what we are and, put us where and how

we find ourselves now is a must.

But that just like most experiences must be used to make the new US.

There are people who influenced us for good or bad and it is ok.

Let’s just now use our knowledge and experience to move forward

keeping the right people around us. Those that were there and did not

let go of us.

Let’s evaluate our actions and decisions of the past and learn

from the bad decisions but also celebrate the good ones.

The past is gone and nothing can be done about it.

The future however is right there ripe for the taking.

Do Not Waste Another Day Or Even Another Minute.

Go Make You Tomorrow Happen.

Gang all of the best to you all.

Do not forget to work on your goals for 2018

Life’s Lessons

an arrowAre you NORMAL?

Because I am. I hate it when things don’t go my way.

I hate it when life and the universe don’t see my genius and crap all over my plans.

It is true that we learn more from the setbacks than from things going our way

but I still dislike it with a passion.

I have become better at dealing with set-backs but it still takes an active choice

not to get into an argument with nature, karma, God and every other force in the universe

when things don’t work out my way.

I also try not to waste the lessons of failure and set-backs and strive to get the

last drop of wisdom available to me. (all the while kicking and screaming)

So I ask you again: Are you normal?

Gang hope you are having an amazing week and as always

all the best of the best for you all and those important to you.

There Is Work To Be Done.

work on your weaknessBecause as we grow and improve we see

areas that could be better we never stop working.

Take an honest look at yourself and find those areas

you wish to work on.

Every day that we work on improving ourselves is

well spent.

Our daily work helps us enjoy the other aspects

of our life and that is where we can see the fruit of

our labor.

Keep on Keeping on.

On Life.

good things happenFor those of you familiar with my blog and

work you know that I have been working

on getting to my ideal weight yes., but I am also

working on creating a life I can feel proud of.

In the process of making a difference in and for

my circle of influence I have shared honestly and,

have contributed with advise from my own

past experiences.

Me just like you have had nice and significant

triumphs but had also to wrestle with the

Alligator of failure and short comings.

On the spirit of sharing I want to tell you the two

things that are making a difference in my daily

battle., this are things that are working for a

hard case like me so maybe they can make a

difference for someone else out there.

1.- I have a coach that has been kicking my ass

up and down the long hours of the day.

Her outside view with the inside info she

gets from me has had outstanding results.

2.- the influence of the products, service and support

of the 48 days community. Gang you do not have

to buy anything to get some great free tools and

you can join their weekly podcast for free. Why do I

recommend it? Well because in the process of

doing more than just loosing weight I am building

a life and a business and  there I have found real

people with real dreams and some of the challenges

that we all face. If you are working on more than

just loosing weight and making a living take a look at

their program I hope you benefit as much as I have.

To the right you can find an affiliate link that will

take you straight to their site. As I said before you DO NOT

have to buy anything but you can get a lot for free.

Gang till the next time.

Super Friends

Female super heoes

Most of the most supportive persons

in my life have been females and

that makes them my Super Heroes.

I have been lucky in that some great

people have taken an interest in me

and for that I am and will forever be

grateful.

Find someone who has made a difference

in your life and thank them.

Find someone you can make a difference

for and do something for them.

Be a friend. A Real Friend.

Be Proud. Let’s All Be Proud.

dont waitThe road is hard and we all know it as we all walk it.

I have said before that I celebrate a day without chocolate

just as much as a week of weight loss.

I celebrate an ounce and I celebrate a pound.

We have to. We must remain positive

There are enough FAKE friends and

unsupportive relatives trying to hold us down.

We must do whatever is needed to keep us going.

It is up to us. Let’s do it.

Gang Stay Focus Remain Successful.

Reality Shock!!

You never realize

It is amazing the things we do when our backs are against the wall.

Recently I was in limbo in regards to my health and future in general. I decided I could not control the results but I could control my reaction and the ensuing decisions. I pushed my diet and re-focus my goals. I started again

I felt out of control and out of options. THAT was what made me push harder and fight to regain some form of normalcy and control. I found strength and personal power, resolve I did not knew I had.

I do not know what it is that will bring the fight out of you but I hope you can find it at the time of your greatest need.

Goals, Dreams, Plans are things not to take lightly. This are the things we fight for. This are the things that change us.

Keep pushing, keep working and by all means keep dreaming.

All the best to all of you.

RESILIENCE.

Always AlwaysWanting what we love and loving what we want

is a sure way to improve in our Resilience.

We all know that life is imperfect and we know

just as well that things are not going to be just

how we want them to be for the most part.

It is acknowledging that and deciding to push thru

that makes us better every day.

Not better than others just better than we were

just yesterday.

There is no such thing as a small change or a

little improvement. Better is better regardless of degree.

When Sh…tuff happens push harder.

When things don’t go as you want them., try again.

When you are not getting the results you want., Refocus.

Do what you must but do not give up.

Gang we are worth it.

Let’s go for it.

The Evil Monday!

Today is a new begining monday

On Monday’s and other necessary evils.

We all know that for a new start every day

is a good day.

I like Monday’s… Yes I said it. I like Monday’s.

It is a clean slate with endless possibilities and

I want to take a shot at it. I want to do what others

do not because I want what others can’t have.

Be weird with me. Let’s make it count.

This day and every day is a great chance for a

fresh start or a new goal.

Happy Monday to you all and do not forget

to drink the water, measure the food, increase the

activity, take the meds and do not forget the

vitamins. All of this is part of the picture.

Keep it present, make a difference.

Please if this serves you or entertain you

share the love and post it to any of the

Media services below. I thank you.
