Goals The Pathway For a Better Tomorrow.

Goals. When do you work on your yearly goals? There is no wrong answer for this UNLESS you don't write your yearly goals. Everyone has a different way or process to develop and evaluate your plans and goals.  I now am trying a new approach and it is to have my goals for the next year ready by the 15th of November well before the busy days of the holidays and end of year. Whatever your system is make sure you are making realistic, measurable goals for the year of 2015. All the best now and always to you all. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

FOOD. The other side of the coin.

dont dig your graveWeight loss is not just a matter of Dieting any more

than it is just a matter of working out.

A balance of the two makes for faster more noticeable results.

By contrast., nothing will have a more negative effect on

your efforts than a poor diet.

Everybody should eat high quality proteins and nutrients BUT

for those of us with a lap-band or any other type of

Weight Loss Surgery  (WLS) the quality and quantity of the food

we consume is of the utmost importance.

Do not fool yourself there is no way around this for us if we

are truly committed to obtaining results.

Watch what you eat. Follow the feedings program you were given.

consume high quality nutrients and drink plenty of water.

It is quite simple to obtain results and even easier when you are

adding enough activity in any way shape or form.

Best Time Of The Day.

Screenshot_20170423-0755463:30 AM was my best time of the day.

I functioned well with two or three hours

of sleep and I could go all night working,

reading, talking, getting in trouble or just

driving around.

Things change. I have changed and as my

body has aged I find losing the weight  to

be harder and taking longer.

I hurt after my activities and I do not like it.

I used to run for ever and stop when bored

not when tired and now even my walks hurt.

And yet I find my activity so rewarding.

I love the challenge not because I always win

but because it keeps me going.,

I do love the feeling of the win all the wins big

and small because an ounce or a pound are

equally important and relevant.

Gang this weight loss thing is an ongoing

numbers game. How many times we fall,

how many times we get up again.

It happens… Shit does happen so be ready

and just keep going.

Stay focus remain successful.

“A picture is worth a thousand words” Or we could say it is worth a hundred pounds.
This picture was sent to me by the administrator of the blog iambetterthanthis.com and it just spoke to me.
At times it helps to see our goals. To feel our vision. This little tool which I will start using today does just that. It is simple, visible, present and, a kick in the gut when we are not doing what we said we were going to do.

Those of us who have gone trough the procedure of having WLS know that we put our life on the table when we went to surgery. Spend lots of money going trough the process and committed to a change in our lives. Folks. It is not the band that fails as I was just reminded while reading another fellow blogger’s posts. (madbandedhousewife.wordpress.com) It is us who can fail if we do not keep to the plan. Hell no it is not easy! But it is so worth it, our life a better life is worth it.

Anyway. This pic came from Pinterest and I hope it is a tool that is useful to you. I know it will be for me.

As always I wish you all the success that you rightfully deserve.

LOVING AND SUPPORTING OURSELVES

LOVING AND SUPPORTING OURSELVES

The weight loss race is a lonely one.
In the end it is just me, my self and I making the decisions of what and how much to eat.
It is just me, my self and I making sure the goal is ever-present. Me, myself and I arguing over are we or are we not going for our walk today, me, myself and I fighting over are we working out or not.
It sounds as if this was all we ever thought of but it is more what we do all day long that keeps reminding us of the goal. When we have to walk for any distance and we are winded. When we try to play with our kids and we lack the strength or stamina. When our work requires us to fly places and we face the 1 inch by 1 inch seat in the plane. When we look at the assortment of pills we have to take every day. It is all of those things that keep our goal constantly present in our days.
It is a desire and the hope for a better tomorrow that motivates us.
It is that form of self-love that gives us the strength to try again and again.
Sometimes the people around us do not see the why and lovingly share their thoughts and concerns and we just want to lovingly put their heads under water for just a couple of days.
Yes it was a joke but see how you smiled? That is the approach we need to take to the negative comments. The inconsiderate looks and stares. Laugh it off and keep on keepin’ on.
Keep winning the little battles. The battles with the fork, the battles with the bed in the early morning, the screaming matches with the bathroom scale, and the cold war with the mirror.
Keep winning the little battles and eventually you will reach your goal and win the war.
Let’s love ourselves more. Let’s support ourselves more. Let’s believe in us more.

The secret is to want it bad enough.
I truly do not think it is a matter of size as much as it is a matter of commitment. I see every day folks that are older but also younger working out and just as common it is to see both male and female persons of more and less weight than me and they are hauling ass every day. I use them as my inspiration specially when I do not feel like working out as I know that Miss Evelyn will be there while I am in bed and I will not have that. By the way Miss Evelyn is 87 years old.
