  4. If you are looking for a surgeon to help you with your existing lap band, fill/maintenance or are having trouble dropping weight and getting the lap band to "do what you thought it would" - contact Dr. Eric Pinnar in Jacksonville, FL his approach works...

    Spin helps in the sense that it burns calories however if you want to lift "da butt" you will need to do specific exercises that effect the 3 muscles that make up "da butt" 1. Gluteus minimus The smallest of the glute muscles lies directly under the gluteus medius. 2. Gluteus medius This pork chop-shaped muscle sits near the outside of your pelvis. 3. Gluteus maximus True to its name, the maximus is the biggest muscle in your body. Some of the key exercises are: Bulgarian split squat - 15 slow proper reps per leg *Following done while on forearms Mule kick Mule kick w/curtsy Swim kick Circle kick *All "kicks" done 15 reps back to back all one one side then switch to the other side Prepare for an awesome soreness in the following day ; ) Lee 280 lbs Lost - All Diseases Reversed American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer & Health Coach

    I want to be a runner

  10. The LapBand may not be a "magic pill" but it does provide Hope and Hope Is what Powers the life changing transformation we all seek. Pain may have gotten me to the surgeon but HOPE set me free from the prison of my body. At over 450 lbs and on oxygen I started with 30 seconds of exercise and increase it 30 seconds every day. Life is Filled Fun and Free Today - setting record with largest beach Yoga and then running on the largest all beach 5k the "Never Quit" how appropriate for us that battle obesity, huh ? I am here to say NEVER QUIT!! Pics from today
  11. Hey Creek! Awesome brotha!! Now ... What's the plan of action ? Can you schedule and train for another event ? Maybe as it turns fall ... Around Halloween - good way to stay focused and give you extra incentive ? Hit me up and let me know - time to get to the next level, You can do it : ) Lee

    Miserable inside.

    This is going to sound stupid and oversimplified to you - at least it sounded like that to me when I was where you are on my journey but... You must find ways to"be happy" "reward" yourself "enjoy" that are Not food related OR you will not find the freedom you seek. That does NOT mean find "heathy" food substitutes and ways to "be happy" using food that's just healthier lower cal choice. It DOES mean finding new ways to "be happy" like painting, writing, hiking, racing, book groups, singing, building, dating, swimming, etc... It takes time but you can find fulfillment in other ways and its important to your hunt for freedom. I try to live by this Mission Statement: Mission statement on Food Use Food only to nurture and strengthen my body so I can have more exciting and fuller experiences. Never use food to honor or Celebrate a day/person/experience/occasion or to "feel" or to NOT "feel" an emotion such as happiness, sadness, boredom, frustration, panic, fear, stress. Never use food to connect or build a bridge to a person or place. It is only with a more Healthy strong body that I can have the energy, endurance, strength and vitality to maximize every experience life has to offer. Lee

    Got a Gym membership! But now what?

    Wow so many great ideas! Keep on mind you don't need to go to or belong to a gym to get a great workout. Although group fitness is critical to add at some point as you progress. The power of the group is valuable. Ez workout anywhere: 5 min active warmup Walk at intense level 20 min 10 jumping jacks 10 push ups ( back flat - go down only a little I'd that's all you can but no knees on the floor) 10 squats (keep knees behind toes) 10 lunges left leg 10 lunches right leg 10 crunches (don't strain neck) 1 minute plank 5 min slow stretch Too much ? Cut it all in half (10 min walk - 5 reps each) STILL too much? cut it all in half again (5 min walk - 2 reps each ) STILL TOO MUCH? cut it in half again (5 min walk 1 rep each) The Key is Start Today - then add 30 secs each day to the walk and 1 rep Hope in Your Future is Power in Your Present!

    Hey LB Anna, Mindset change is a perfect way to describe it! Two things I do that have helped a ton w/food 1- I buy the pouches of flavored tuna and I tape a plastic fork to the back of the pouch. Then I place them in my car, back packs, workout bags office desk etc... Then I ALWAYS have instant ready to eat Protein no prep required ! 2- I actually map out where all the places are in the areas I travel locally where I can buy quick food - certain gas stations n 7/11's carry hard boiled eggs ready to eat - fruit - Greek low fat yogurt plus they almost all carry muscle milk (not my fav Protein shake but will do in a pinch) Preparation lends itself to piece of mind - lowers stress equals less "crazy" in my head - less cravings Lee

    Jlan, You sound like a perfect candidate for surgical intervention - I have the band but the sleeve is also a good alternative. I am 5ft 8 and was over 450 lbs with lung disease high blood pressure diabetes and given two years to live. I was hospitalized and still couldn't stop eating NOTHING worked anymore. The Lapband saved my life ... I still had to do Work but the Lapband gave me a tool to make it possible. I have lost over 280 lbs all my diseases are reversed and I am healthier and more physically fit than anytime in my life. Yes WLS can and will work ...IF YOU DO. Lee

    This decision will set you up for failure or success in the future. Also why is your husband sabotaging you is the bigger question. Lee
