Victories And More.


I love it when the scale shows numbers I like.

I like the extra energy.

I like to pull out clothes I had not been able

to wear in a while.

but something that others can’t see

but I feel is that peaceful feeling of

wellbeing, health, strength, and yes

a bit of extra passion.  I do not need the scale

to tell me or show me.

It is not just what we see that we

need to pay attention to. It is also

how and what we feel inside.

Gang stay focus and enjoy what you

have earned. Health, strength, stamina,

endurance, passion, and extra days.

3 choices

How often do we re set our goals and expectations?
Our goals must be clear and concise so that as we work with the end in mind the image is clear and inspiring.
But it must also be flexible so we can adjust as our expectations may at times fall short. Inspiration, frustration, desire, etc., will at time make us over reach., we don’t give up or change our goal but in order to continue we adjust. Maybe we change our workout schedule, maybe we adjust our walk distance, maybe we switch our work out days, etc., we adjust but we do not abandon our goals. We don’t abandon our dreams. We don’t abandon Us.
All the success in the world for you. Stay focus Remain Successful.

I am me.


Those of us fighting the  battle of the pounds

should know that the size of our results

will be equal to the size of our committment.

For those of us with the lapband well things

are a little different. Many would think it is

easier for us but, we know it is not so.

Keep pushing. Measure your food, drink your

water, take your meds, exercise regularly.

Stay focus remain successful.

A Walk Of Perspective.


If you want to see just how small

our problems really are go for a walk

on the mountains.

Talk about getting some perspective.

This picture was taken somewhere

up in the Arizona mountains. NE of

Phoenix. I know that my mind was

heavy with issues and this trip help

me get some perspective.

Things will happen and how we react

will have a huge impact on everything.

I know my reactions have affected my

health, emotional stability, stress levels,

and so much more that I, and you should

know better but it don’t always works that way.

I guess what I am trying to tell you gang

is that in order to protect ourselves and

so be able to be the best we can be,

we must “kind of” stop every now and then.

Think before reacting.  And yes some times

Shut The Heck Up.

Gang let us do the best we can for all but

specially for ourselves.

The Meds Of Our Lives

62e621d57597a4db42872e9247641e16I see this and it reminds me of a friend who

suffered from by-polar disorder. He would say

to us all “If I start acting like all you crazies please

ask me if I took my meds” He was great.

Now back to us. If you had WLS you should be

on vitamins. If you have high cholesterol or issues

with your blood pressure you probably are on meds.

Where am I going with this? We Must Take Our Meds.

We must take our meds as prescribed.

I loved it that as the weight fell off my daily meds

count went down as well. I went from 12 and 15

pills a day to now only two and I am working on them

as well. I want out of the pill club.

Gang is we do the right things progress will happen.

A reduction of the meds we are on should be a goal

we work for.

Stay focus and remain successful.

Back To Basics.


Going back to basics is very much

needed and we shall pay attention

to those basics we are missing.

For those of us with WLS weight

loss surgery the basics are made clear

before we get our surgery.

Drink the water. Take you meds.

Drink the water. Chew twice as much

Take your vitamins.

We know this things and yet many

of us if we are honest know that we

fall short in one or more of this


Gang we must stay focused if

we want to be successful.

Personal Change.


As we plan our goals for the year 2018

let us not forget that the battle IS NOT

to be better than others but to be a better

version of our previous selves from yesterdays.

The true battle if to figure out our weak areas.

Finding where the work is most needed is

a triumph in and by itself.

Winning is and should be about winning over

our weak and flawed selves. There is where

lasting change and triumphs lay.

I wish you all the success possible as this year

ends and the new year starts.

Let us be better every day.
