Missing Home.

Condo Add Pictures 006

Is there a place that calls to you?

Is there a place that when you think of home… There is where you mean.

This is mine.

Sitting out on the balcony. Thinking, Resting, Writing.

Knowing I am home.

I miss it so much right now it hurts.

Sorry just feeling mushy inside.

Tomorrow we get back to business. Today. I am enjoying the view.

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.

On The New Year.


ZERO TOLERANCE
Are we starting this new opportunity on the right foot?

Are we set to get the most out of this opportunity?

Let’s not allow anything to get in the way of us reaching our goals.

This is our life. This is not a Dress rehearsal.

Let’s OWN it.

Wishing us all a Kick Ass New Beginning.

Goals.

Set a goalOk Gang. This is the first week of

December, and the question in the air is:

Have you written your 2019 goals?

Guys we can never start too early writing our

yearly goals and plans.

It should be an automatic that by November the 15th

we are done with our planning then,

when the craziness of the holidays hit

we are ahead of the competition.

Reality is that few, very few people

accomplish this. and even less take their

goals to fruition. BUT…… The weird ones,

the successful folk, The strange, the winners

they all do this.

Gang I want for all of us to be strange, weird,

winners. YES I want for all of us to have

an amazing 2019.

Please, please work on putting your goals

and dreams on paper. Go crazy and dream big

remember that we want to be weird, and strange

Because we want to be winners.

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.

Last Sunday Of November 2014


you have the power
This is the last Sunday of November.

Have you written your goals for the next year?

Take it for a test drive. Write your goals and keep them present

all year-long and see if your life does not changes completely.

Make economic goals, Work on them and see if you do not end up better.

Make health goals. See if you don’t end up healthier.

Make weight loss goals. Your scale will thank you. It works.

Go to you tube and search Jim Rohn on goals setting, then search

Tony Robbins on life goals and there you will see the blue print for

goal setting. If you want to go the extra mile and have a month,

get and read the book “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy

and see your life transform, and improve.

Gang I can wish you all the best till I am blue on the face,

but it will take you putting some action for the good to come.

Hey.. If you can,  give yourself a Christmas gift and get you

a subscription to Success Magazine.

Feed your mind the good stuff and your life will reflect it.

Let’s continue to feed our mind and body with only the best.

Therapy Any One?

24dd3d98cd4ab1f9217bf1887394b83aThere are times when I get the biggest charge

out of a visit with Mr. Punch Bag.

At times, it is not about exercise or burning

calories, and it turns into plain and simple therapy.

At times, I admit I might make Mr. Bag pay for

the silliness, stupidity and shortcomings of others

and myself as well.

All aside I do enjoy how I feel after a session with

the bag and I find that when done properly I use my

whole body and the workout is great.

For those of us with a Lap Band, exercise should be

an intrinsic part of our days in order to keep, and add

to our weight loss numbers. Also, it helps maintain

our weight loss rhythm.

Gang when you don’t have a whole lot of time

try a session with the bag and see how effective

it can be.

Stay focused stay successful.

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

The making of ourselves.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A Walk.

 

DSC_0024

Where have your walks taken you?

Walking is one of my favorite activities,

I enjoy taking off and then see where I end up.

This particular walk started at the touristic

malecon in Puerto Penasco, Mexico, it ended

Way the hell two colonias/neighborhoods away.

The point for me is, ten thousand steps a day

is where I like to start., from there we shall see.

My diet, my life, my work, and most everything

else seems to work better when I daily take my

long walks.

The messed up part is that at times I go long times

not taking them, and I should do better since I do

know better than that.

Gang. Whatever it is that makes things work for you

please be good to yourself and: Do It.

Want success? Do what works!

This is Jon Hamm. He is one of the guys I admire

a lot. He takes care of himself and looks great always.

I love motorcycles and hope to one day look that cool

on one. Nothing like hitting the road, getting on the wind.

The other thing/experience that feels good is when you

get on the scale and it gives you the numbers you want.

I recently got on the scale and did not like what I  saw.

I got on the program again and I have already lost 6 pounds.

I am at 59 #’s from my goal. I will make it. I will make it soon.

Gang as you might have noticed I have not post as regularly

as I am used to, but I am back and will get back on track.

Wow! I have heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. How many calories is this picture worth? We should take a look at this when we are having second thoughts about our diet, our exercise, our walk or run and all those little things we do in trying to loose the weight. Until the next one and in the mean time keep up the good work. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

I love and enjoy photography.

Reading the message in the photo made me

think of taking photos with film, we get one chance

and we best not waste it because it is gone.

In some ways it is the same with life, opportunities

and adventure come and if we are not aware

the chance is gone.

Weight loss is also like that. We make many

small decisions and if we are not aware it is easy

to mess up. My mother told me many a time:

“Nothing is as easy as being mediocre”

I ask you not to be mediocre. I hope my efforts

keep me from being mediocre.

But more importantly… We define ourselves.

very basic  We Find Ourselves.

that they scare you a little.

Writing, flying, eating, fishing, running, etc.,

whatever you love and like creates passion.

There is no winning without passion.

Weight loss is no different, dieting is not

either, and weight loss For Sure needs

commitment in order to create Passion.

Figure it out, get clear on the why it is

that you want to lose the weight, gaining

the clarity will help you bring out the passion,

do that and the rest will be much, much easier.

Carbs. Is there anything more scary

to many dieters?

I, myself am on a low carb diet, but I

am not letting that rule the whole of

my process and weight loss efforts.

There are times when I need or want

something and I get it. I know that  want

as I might at times I either want, need, or

deserve a treat, reward, or fix and I do not

deny myself.  I have however learned to

differentiate a one time thing from a whim.

Keeping goals and priorities present helps

to limit the number of exceptions and that

is always a good thing.

I remember my father saying this to my mom.

Yes, she didn’t think it was funny either.

The reason most of us choose to have WLS

was because we got to a point where we had

to do something.  So to realize that we were round

was a good thing. I know that I flew past 300#’s.

I know that the size on my shirts resembled a

brand of Mexican beer and then some.

I tried it all and then I found the lapband.

The Lapband, while not for everyone it did

work for me.  So if you are thinking about

going through the procedure, make sure you

thoroughly evaluate all the pros and cons as it

is not as some think “The easy way”. Read, ask

questions, find a reputable program with a good

surgeon and a great support program for post-op.

This is not a decision you are to take lightly.

A walk or a run???

66f9966a18f15901a90023115bbbc1f9

The younger version of me used to belong to

a military style health group in Mexico and

routinely run about 15 kilometers.

NOW, I can talk about it but in no way am I

in the physical condition to do even half of that.

I enjoy my crazy, long walks in all kinds of crazy places.

While my walks are not what they used to I still

enjoy the activity and how I feel after I am done.

Whatever your routine is, make sure that you are

doing something you enjoy so you ensure that you

will continue to do it. The only thing I do that I do not

is a leg work out when I am at the gym. Since, at the

present moment I am unable to join or attend a gym,

well I do not much worry about it. Does anyone else

hates leg day at the gym???

I laugh every time I see this.

But, it is also worth taking a moment

and thinking about what in our lives

we can actually change.

I do not want to be overweight, and even

though it is a hard up-hill battle I stay at it.

I want to reduce the risks of high blood pressure,

high cholesterol, stroke, diabetes, and more

I am genetically vulnerable to thanks to family history.

Those are things I can do something about. I can watch

my weight, control what and how much I eat,

have a plan and work the plan.

If we have friends and family, we owe it to them,

and ourselves to take better care of our health.

Challenges for those of us working on loosing

the pounds or reducing the inches is a challenge.

This challenges will prepare us for the occasions

when we lose the battle with the snacks, and the

sheets allowing the pounds to creep up again.

It happens to all and the best of us.

Learn from the process and do not forget that

all the challenges can prepare us for eventual

success. The lapband is a tool and a helping hand

but respect must be paid and rules followed for

results to come-about. Do not forget.

All the best and please remain focus.

There is beauty. Everywhere.

IMG_1141A walk on the beach is nice.

A walk on the mountain is refreshing.

A walk on the desert is interesting.

Then again all walks are good.

Why, and how we go about it, well that is

a whole different thing.

Be positive, be strong, and always enjoy

the place where your feet take you.

Beauty and uniqueness can be found

everywhere so pay attention and find it.

Gang stay focus and remain successful.

 

Work On Your Passion.

Taking pride and interest on bettering ourselves

must be a center thought, and all the work needed

must be focused to that end.

Trying to please and keep other’s happy more than

working on ourselves is a mistake.

Our weight loss, specially for us with the lapband

is a more important proposition.

Plan your work, work your plan.

Never forget, all yo do will benefit you but also

those important to you.

Stay focus, remain successful.

I Am Worth It.


working on me
Back Pain, Headaches, Low Stamina,

Low Endurance, Huge Clothes.

I remember this things all too well and

know that I do not want to go back to them ever again.

This is a journey that has proven to be a lonely one and

I am ok with that because I know that it is not for everyone.

I do not know what is your “WHY” but make sure it is a strong,

valid, significant, and inspiring  “WHY” to you

because that will keep you inspired and on task.

Keep fighting the good fight.

Arguments.

cbbf6440767dc265dc50892a55e1c212When it comes to arguing about diets

please, please don’t.

There are arguments for all the Diets

and all the programs out there, BUT

the moment that results begin to show…

Every body wants to know what it is

that you are doing.

Forget about it all and just do your thing.

Take care of you and commit to your program.

Just Do Your Thing.  Be Successful.

Stay focus.

Dare, dare to step outside.

 

IMG_1138What will we discover when we step

out of the common, comfortable, familiar?

I have found that interesting things, places,

and people are found all around us when we

pay attention and dare step out.

We are past the first half of the year;

I hope your goals and plans are on track,

I hope that as you work through the process

of losing the weight, and making for a healthier

life, don’t waste the opportunity to enjoy, and live,

live fully. Step out of the comfort and the familiar.

Take a risk and go find something new, something

different and interesting., if it is new it will be worth it.

Stay focus remain successful.

Every Now And Then.

IMG_1102While I am all for going forth and taking

any and all the necessary extra steps, I also

believe that we should take any breaks and stops

needed for us to remain sane and centered.

To be successful full effort and commitment

should be put forth but attention should be paid

so we do not destroy by over-doing.

Take a break every now and then.

Go somewhere and enjoy something.

To me there is no better place than the beach,

and no better time than sunset. Talk about a magic

cleansing moment. Perspective I guess.

Gang figure out what works for you and

and use it for your growth.

Faith

faith.jpg

I do not know you so I do not know if you are a person of faith.

I am and I just want to go out on a limb here and share with you

that this is a central part of my life.

Most of what I do is passed through the filter of my values

not because I am perfect but precisely because of my

many shortcomings.

This is not an effort to bother or antagonize anyone

but merely a sharing of yet another aspect of my life.

I do not know what inspires you but enjoy it and grow

with it.

Gang Stay Focus Stay Successful.

A moment of truth.

DSC_0173That cold, cold shower moment when

we get on the scale.

Great if its good but tough if it is not.

At that moment every bite that went through

our lips comes to mind and makes us smile

or makes us cringe with regret.

We know what we are supposed to do

so let us go forth and make the right

decisions to accomplish our dreams and goals.

Let us take a shower, a shower of success.

By the way., those are my kids on the ride.

Knot’s I believe. Or sea world. Not sure. LOL.

 

 

Yes You Can!

I do not hold it against them when people do not understand or clearly do not want me to succeed. I do not get mad but I do not let it get to me and allow them to bring me down or permit them to change my mind either. I want what I want and there is no question about it. This is why it is so important to know and keep in mind the WHY we do what we do. Let NO ONE bring you down and that includes you. Keep the focus. Keep pushing. Keep working on your plan and accomplish your goal. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

The Real.

DSC_0061What is hot?  What is fast?

What is stylish? What is the it thing?

The answer is: It depends.

The same thing happens when it comes

to us. To diet, weight loss, appearance, etc.

It is about what is right for US. What is

appropriate and adequate for us.

Don’t let the flashy or trendy affect the process

you have delineated for yourself.

Keep it up and have an impact on your world.

Moments.

 

DSC_0747To share, to admire something amazing

with those that we love is great.

I have had the luck to share with my kids

of many a thing.  With Daniel my oldest it

was always Christmas. Boy did we go overboard.

With my young kids now, it is the water. River, Ocean,

beach, lake.  We all love the water.

My wife and I continuously look for excuses to take

day trips, and weekend trips, and any trips we can.

I then insert my walks and my work outs as best as I can.

This is not always easy and it does not always work but

we sure do try to make it work.

Figure out what works for you, what doesn’t.

Gang, make it work. figure it out and go forth.
