TOMORROW.

TOMORROW.

Why wait for tomorrow?
For those of us who are on the road to a better US there is no place for tomorrow., not at the price of a better life.
We do not make excuses for others or for ourselves and that makes us at times the target of jokes, slander, abuse, good and bad intentions and it is our job to maintain the higher ground.

Zero tolerance!! For ourselves when we hesitate between the scheduled and the accidental. When we fail to do what is important and instead we allow the urgent to rule.
To fail to follow our diet just because “it is just a little piece”
For not taking our vitamins and medicine as prescribed instead of “at times”

Tomorrow is the biggest thief. The biggest reason why goals, diets, dreams, wishes and desires do not happen as they should.

As a Hispanic I am very familiar with the term “Manana” Manana does not mean tomorrow., it means “Not Now”

So I ask you If not today, if not now,Then When?

How about right now? How does right now sounds to you?

All of the best for you.

Truth And Reality.

One does not justCrazy how simple the truth sounds.

Hard as hell some times but always well worth it.

People think at times that those of us with a lap band

have an easier go at it but they are wrong as any one

with Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) will quickly tell you.

We must pay as much attention if not more to what we

eat, how we exercise, how much we chew, the amount

of water we drink, the way we take our meds, the extra

vitamins that we need to take, and on, and on, and more.

Regardless the temptations are there and there are real.

The desire for sweets or an extra portion of food is just

as real as it is for anyone else. WE just have an extra tool.

Never forget that a tool in order to be of help must be

used or it is irrelevant.

The decisions we make have an impact and we must

be ever vigilant as we can be as weak as anyone else.

One thing that we should do is always keep our goals

and dreams ever-present because that is the only

way that the what becomes more possible.

Never stop. Keep trying and continue to work on

your goals. Weight Loss, more money, a better relationship,

anything you want is possible if you pay the price.

Keep it present, keep it real, keep it possible.

Wasted Time And Effort.

ddd08952d7fefe11737a91daebc048d1

Because I am human I have been imperfect.

There came a time when I painfully learned that.

Yes… I never thought I was wrong or at fault. Ever.

The process of living and learning impacted simultaneously

my personal, professional, physical, and social life.

After many mistakes and even more falls and stumbles

I feel I have made some even if small progress.

One of the things I have worked diligently on; is the

development of exercise and activity routines that

“Work For Me”.  As soon as I ascertain this all kind

of experts, critics, and caring by-standers began to

attack and criticize. I have ignored them as when

I followed my routines there is always progress.

I guess what I am trying to tell you all is that you

should pay attention to the things that work for you

and continue to use them in as long as you make

progress.  Do not be blind to expert advise but no one

knows you better than you.

Keep your goals and dreams ever-present and

you will accomplish what you desire.

Stay focus and remain successful.

Which Is The Meassure Of Your Success?

measuring-tape

So? What is it for YOU?

Who cares what others say or think? Who cares what is important to others. What is important to YOU?

Is it a clothes size? A waist measure? The blinking numbers on your scale?

I do not know since I do not know you personally but keeping track of what is important to us is always a great Idea.

Folks are you familiar with the book “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy? If you are you know how important tracking is,

and if you are not I hope you will take a small piece of advice from me and get you this book. You can get it on audio form or e-book or print form.

Regardless of how you choose to get it you will get information that will help you accomplish any goal you are working on.

A most valuable resource.

Tracking what we eat, our progress, our needed steps, etc., will keep the goal ever-present.

Define what matters to you. Define what it is that you have to do and go for it.

OK. As promised a little bit on food. For those of us that have undergone Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) or those

that are thinking of getting it done here is some insight.

Due to the reduced space for food to go trough on the way to the stomach., the consistency of food must always be taken into consideration

when prepping and when cooking. A small dice will work for most once we get past the initial stage after the surgery.

Make sure you invest in a good quality knife and that it is maintained sharp and always at the ready.

Chewing is the other part of the equation. Make sure that you spend enough time chewing on your food as to avoid getting stuck.

On this I have to add my personal challenge here. IF I allow myself to get too hungry I eat way too fast, and always end up

getting stuck and before long I am throwing up. A most unpleasant experience for those of us that had WLS.

All of the best to you and as always I wish you all the success in the world.

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

100 % Results Only With 100 % Commitment.

Looking back at many of my posts and many of the blogs that I follow I noticed that we all have set backs. I noticed that we all had plateau patches when we were stuck for periods of time. I noticed also that at times food and the warm bed won over our commitment to work on our weight loss plan. BUT.. I also noticed that when we re-committed to our goals we made amazing progress. This shows that were we to remain 100% committed 100% of the time this weight loss thing would be a done deal. BUT as someone who has failed at times I acknowledge that it is hard., possible but hard. We must have a plan. We must work plan. We need to have goals and they need to be ever present. And we must remain 100 % committed to ourselves. That is how we accomplish and conquer. Let's keep up the good work. All the success to you all. Jose G. Osuna www.lapbandformen.com
