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.

Ageless Class

4c16e8356a16bd92961de8d61aef6a1cI do not know how old this gentleman is but

I hope that I can look as good as he does, as both of them

look when I get to their age.

You see gang, this is doable and available to us all

if we are willing to pay the price, and the price is

paid with hard work and committment.

Not easy but truly doable and well worth it.

Stay focused and stay successful.

FITNESS.

any size.png                    Our size matters so little in comparison to the size of our commitment.

Character and commitment are the main markers we should be paying

attention to instead of most other things.

For those of us who have gone through the Lap Band procedure or any

other WLS surgery, there is a common misconception that somehow

we have taken a short-cut and that is just not true.

The managing of the Lap Band or in my case the Reliance Band

has taken so much learning and discipline that I count it as a

separate degree or certification, God knows it cost just as much.

To go through the procedure took a serious amount of commitment

and investment of time and effort.

The thing is that doing nothing will give us nothing.

Do we want results??? Then let us do something about it.

Let us do something now, right now and do not look back.

Gang Stay Focused Stay Successful.

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.

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.

Stay focus remain successful.

What Can I Say.

don

What can I say.

Love him or hate him…. He is one cool looking cat.

I have never looked that good in a suit. I am trying though.

Having a goal or an idea is a good visual aide that can Help us or

it can mess with us.

Make sure you know what you are working towards

and keep that goal ever-present so that you can celebrate

all the small and big victories on the way to the goal.

It is hard work so do not forget to celebrate.

Gang Stay Focused Stay Successful.
