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.

Which Is The Meassure Of Your Success?


So? What is it for YOU?

Who cares what others say or think? Who cares what is important to others. What is important to YOU?

Is it a clothes size? A waist measure? The blinking numbers on your scale?

I do not know since I do not know you personally but keeping track of what is important to us is always a great Idea.

Folks are you familiar with the book “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy? If you are you know how important tracking is,

and if you are not I hope you will take a small piece of advice from me and get you this book. You can get it on audio form or e-book or print form.

Regardless of how you choose to get it you will get information that will help you accomplish any goal you are working on.

A most valuable resource.

Tracking what we eat, our progress, our needed steps, etc., will keep the goal ever-present.

Define what matters to you. Define what it is that you have to do and go for it.

OK. As promised a little bit on food. For those of us that have undergone Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) or those

that are thinking of getting it done here is some insight.

Due to the reduced space for food to go trough on the way to the stomach., the consistency of food must always be taken into consideration

when prepping and when cooking. A small dice will work for most once we get past the initial stage after the surgery.

Make sure you invest in a good quality knife and that it is maintained sharp and always at the ready.

Chewing is the other part of the equation. Make sure that you spend enough time chewing on your food as to avoid getting stuck.

On this I have to add my personal challenge here. IF I allow myself to get too hungry I eat way too fast, and always end up

getting stuck and before long I am throwing up. A most unpleasant experience for those of us that had WLS.

All of the best to you and as always I wish you all the success in the world.

Don’t You Quit!!

crawlingBecause quitting is not acceptable

we plan our work and work our plan.

We look into the future through our dreams

and hopes and we know what the value

of our weight loss is.

We want to live a longer, healthier

life and we want it to mean and stand

for something.

Gang. Let us not forget our dreams

and hopes., let us continue pushing and

working as all of our hard work and

diligence will show up in a better quality

of life that we get to share with our

loved ones.  (whether they want it or not 🙂 )

Don’t quit, Don’t ever quit.

Success A Simple Approach.

S U C C E S S This is as good a KEY to success as any other I have ever seen.

I guess we continue with the theme of simplifying the process.

I like the way that things come together when we pay attention

to detail, and the little things.

It has been an eye opener to me ,having someone going right behind me

looking at what I am doing and how I am doing it.

It is a pain in the ass because she is also paying attention to

the things I am failing to do, but it is making me better as I progress

and move along the road to a better me.

Darren Hardy on his book the compound effect talks about

the benefits of tracking, and while I understood the concept

it was not one of my practices. Right now with the direction and

help of my Coach, I am getting much better at the whole tracking

thing, and I have found where I was paying a silly fat tax on some of

the calories I was consuming. Tracking has also helped me find

time that I can use to work on some of my other projects, and I have

another book almost ready to go to my editor.

Ok gang let’s continue to work on our better selves and

keep on keeping on.
