About Fat…

46fb9400c33796e8c716f848ae29de5eAmazing how people at times are so very

narrow-minded, how little value they and

at times WE give to “Other’s” feelings.

Many a thing can not be changed but there

are other things, important things that can and

should change. Our attitudes, our poor and

negative behaviors.

We need to see the world in a more open and

positive way.

Our goals and dreams when ever-present

provide the fuel, the Jet Fuel to our lives’.

I guess what I am trying to say is that regardless

of the outside influences it is still up to us to make

life and things and dreams and goals happen.

Gang. Stay focus and remain successful.

Life And Reality

be thakfullSadly many times it takes a disappointment

to realize and figure out short comings.

We must be aware and continually look

for what is missing in our daily life.

We need people who care enough for us

that they show us with their actions that they

are not just lip service and when they say

“I am here for you” or “I will support you”

they mean it.

Regardless the responsibility for our life

rests squarely on our shoulders.

And here is where love and gratitude

comes to the front as I think of the one woman

who has made the biggest difference in my life

My wife Amy whose patience, loyalty, love

And strength has made my life better.

Lot’s Of Love Babe you are always present

When so many others choose not to.

Let’s keep our eyes open and continue

to push for growth and continued progress

the person you want and are supposed

to be. Keep at it. Keep working

and keep believing in you. The rest…..

Well., it is not that important.

SUCCESS STARTS WITH A VISION!!

SUCCESS STARTS WITH A VISION!!

We have talked about goals and vision before but I want to once again touch on the importance of starting with the end in mind as Steven Covey told us so many times.

What is it that we want? What is it that we are looking for?
What is that image or picture of ourselves that we have in our mind?

If we can not conjure in a moment what it is that we are working for the chances of us reaching it will be improbable, unlikely.

Mr. Eric Thomas tells a tale of someone who wants to be successful and he trough the tale makes it clear that in order to get there he must want it more badly than wanting to breath while under water.

That is wanting it pretty darn bad.

Clarity of purpose gives us the certainty needed to accomplish a well defined goal. But.. In order to have a clear and well defined goal we must first have a vision.

My vision is at this point a cholesterol level of less than 100. A blood pressure that can not be used to inflate small balls. A weight range of 190 to 210 pounds. And the image is my size of pants of when I was a single man 32 x 30. Not perfect but perfect for me.

That is what I use as my vision. That and a new pair of pants that hang on the door for me.

I will wear them for my birthday next year. I will wear them when I go to a show and dinner in Vegas. That I know.

Find your vision. Keep it ever present and do not let go of it.

All the success to you always.

The Good Of The Worst.

1c6a6317299648b869b0ea2e8092e0c3As we look for the best on the bad

it is good that even at the worst we

can learn and find value.

It is good to see how honestly it was

meant when someone said:

“I am here to help you  because I care

for you” or this one “I just want you to be ok

because I care for you” or the infamous

“I expect nothing I just want to help”

And it is all good until you need them

and you realize that it was nothing but

thin broth or as my father used to say

“Verbal Diarrhea”

At least they finally showed us.

To Salad Or Not To Salad.

Good Day Everyone.

Have you ever been confronted by the “Salad Police”?

When people learn of my efforts to lose weight and the path (low carb, low sodium, high protein.) I have chosen I always get the roll of the eyes and the friendly “Really?”  It is funny because when I explain to them that it was this approach that has given me the best and biggest or should I say smallest results; they usually all of a sudden get very interested in learning just a little bit more. It is almost magical because as they hear the numbers they just can’t let go. What are the numbers? 330 #’s to 235 #’s in less than 4 months.  That was my first big success with dieting. Now… Success does not mean wining and  I proved that by going right back and past the 330 #’s to my top weight of  361 #’s.

Anyway back to salads.

I like salads. I like veggies both raw and cooked but I have a problem with salads and lettuce in particular. Because of my lap band it just does not move. I get stuck and it has to come right up. I have tried chewing longer, different dressings, more of this, more of that, less of this, less of that and it still does not work. So I have tried different ways to eat greens and vegetables.

Anyone else likes creamy mashed potatoes? I do. I discovered that steaming cauliflower and then running them trough my supper duper milk shake making machine and adding just a bit of sour cream and pepper makes for a most acceptable substitute.  I have done similar things with kale, spinach, broccoli, celery, and many other veggies and then use any leftovers for sauces or soups and by doing that I increase the amount of veggies I consume. But it is not salads. You know what it is that I miss a lot? my favorite comfort food broccoli spears with thousand island dressing sprinkled with salt and pepper.  Boy do I miss that.

Ok. I took the liberty of adding the cartoon below and while I know and admit that Atkins is not for everyone I know and can tell you that for a hard case like mine has always been it worked and, as I have incorporated it to my lap band regime it stopped the gaining of weight and has helped my slow progress to my goal weight. Please take it as what it is a cartoon you do not have to agree.

Till the next time.

All of the best for all of you.
