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.

On Big Dreams.

dream big

All things being equal doesn’t it makes sense to dream big?

It takes the same effort to dream crap than to dream championship.

Like my good friend tells me: “when it comes to the good in life

I want more., I always want more”

I guess I agree. I want more life, I want more health, I want more wealth.

I want to lose more weight, I want to feel much better.

I am ready to put my best effort to accomplish it as I know nothing

worthwhile is free.

How big are your dreams? How great your hopes.

It is up to us gang.

Let’s Go Do It.

On Life And Living.

There is so much in life. There is more than just seeing others live theirs.

I see this pic and it makes me smile as I see two of the things that I

actually have a passion for in life. A nice good watch and a great camera.

Lately, I have made so much of my life about my health and

weight loss. Because of my extreme circumstances I have had to

 put lots of living on the back burner. Now am trying to catch up

with myself. Yes, health and fitness are very, very important, but living

and enjoying the other aspects of life is also very important.

It is great how we human beings are able to compartmentalize our

life. Yes I want to be healthy but I want someone to share it with.

Yes I want to live longer but I want someone relevant by my side.

I want more. I want more. I want more!

Do you want more? Because if you do let me tell you that

balance is the base for it all. It is not just this or just that,

it is “AND”. Yes a small word but an important one.

Here it is to us. The nuts that hope AND want for more.

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.

On 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

What Am I?

consistent andWhat we do we must do first and foremost for ourselves.

This is a competition within us. We are trying to be better than

we were yesterday. Yes the fruit of our work and efforts will result

in benefits for our family and loved ones but we must keep

in the words of the great Stephen Covey:

” We must keep the main thing., the main thing.”

With that in mind we move forward in creating the best

version of ourselves possible.

Stronger, healthier, better.
