Fear No Monday

fear no mondayHappy Monday Gang!!

One of the rules that I found is worth

of us always keeping is: “Never fail on Monday”

We must work out every Monday!

We must keep our Diet every Monday!

We must take our pills every Monday!

It has been shown in studies just how much

the “Monday Effect” can impact the rest of

the week., it seems that both monkeys and

humans tend to somehow be more inclined

not to follow through when Monday is not

addressed correctly.

Anyway I hope you have a great and

very productive week.

Inform Yourself.

What is a Lap Band or more appropriately

a gastric band? Well… It is a tool that some of

us with a chronic weight problem have obtained.

It is a medical device that when used correctly

assists with a reduction of food consumed.

Anyone who is considering this as an option

must not only educate themselves but they

should absolutely sick professional assistance.

There are many programs and I will NOT here

recommend any one specifically, I will however

recommend that you find a surgeon that has lots

of experience. My surgeon was by far one of the

biggest assholes I have ever met but, but he had

more experience than all the others combined.

As a result I was in for surgery at 10 or 9 AM, and

by 1 PM I was at the market buying soup to take

home with me for later. I was given pain medicine

and I have to say I needed none of it. I was told that

I would be out of commission for at least a week, but

I was back with my regular life in 3 days.  I was going

crazy with the lack of activity.  Please note that this

was my experience and yours or anyone else’s might

be significantly different.  I had a great surgeon but

a crap support program. (I am sure it was my fault)

Considering this or any other WLS??? Inform yourself.

Make Time For YOU.

Make time for itWe need to be about it now just talk about it.

It is easy to talk, but it is in the doing that

the changes and progress  happen.

For those of us with the Lapband® the process

needs adjusting a bit. We must drink the water,

measure our portions, take our vitamins, always,

always remember to take our meds, chew twice as much,

remain active with the support groups.

For those that think that getting a lapband or any other

Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) makes things easier

we have some news: It Doesn’t!

Regardless we are all in this together so:

keep on keeping on.

Success will come to those that stay focused.

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.

How We Are.

6dab7192b4261488724e2a1115f3a7c3

The way I see it is: “Even Superman has his Kryptonite.”

And we are not as bad ass as Superman so we must be

“Super” careful. I know that French bread at Walmart

would kick my behind every single time so I avoid it.

I know that if I don’t do my cardio before I do weights

I will not really do either.

It is in the knowing, and knowledge of our weak areas

that our chance for success comes.

Acknowledge your strengths, and be mindful of your

weak areas, and you are half way there to be successful.

Make your plan, work your plan, watch the pounds drop.

Simple right?

Not Really. What is easy to do is easy not to do.

Want it bad enough and you will do it.

Expectations.

I hate it whenWe must decide what it is that we want, and once we do that

take the steps to accomplish it. Not any easier but clearer.

We live in an “Immediate satisfaction” society that has no patience

for planning, and organizing but even less for consistent

on-going daily work.

WE, however understand that our commitment, planning,

and consistent work will provide us the success needed to

support the next round of battles.

Gang, we know that it is not the easy but the consistency where

the success lies.

Let us keep going so that we might continue to be examples

to those observing us, those wanting to attain some of the

same success nectar. Continue to be an example.

Continue to put the work needed.

Let us all continue to make progress, daily progress.

Funeral.

fat funeralFinally a funeral we can all celebrate.

I do not know about you but my imagination is a

great tool for me. I imagine a counter over my head

that is keeping track of burned calories.

A funeral march for the fat that I burned,

and a band playing for the success it is

even to just show up.

Gang, use all you need and make sure that you

do not waste any of what is yours in your effort

to gain terrain at the battle of weight loss.

Day by day and decision by decision we continue to

make progress and all progress is good.

Keep on keeping on.
