Good morning!

So, THE ADVERTISEMENTS ARE IN! Check it out!


(Also, notice the shirt!)



I am SOOOO excited about these - they look great and it's just a blast to actually see them full size.

In case your Danish is a little rusty, this is what the signs say:

Left banner:
(above picture) "When is the last time you're gonna lose weight?"
(below picture) Company logo - "LoseWeight - For life!"

Right banner:
Company Logo

What do you guys think?

There was a little hitch, but it's being fixed. Fortunately, I won't get any problems from it.

One of the "roll-ups", as they are called, didn't roll back in. So it's stuck all rolled out. Fortunately, they had a special, so I got two of each for the price of one. So, I have a spare.

They're already on it, printing a new one, and getting it shipped ASAP.

...

So, I'm up in weight today. This was not according to plan. Yesterday was kinda stressfull getting everything set up, and dealing with the broken roll-ups along with a lot of other little things.

I ate it all away, but did manage to stay reasonably controlled. Still, it happened. I'm not proud of it, but I am only a mere human. :)

I'm back on track today, everything planned and my mind in the right place again. It's all good.

...

I started up another new client yesterday. This is gonna be a very interesting, but tough case. I'm gonna need some different things from the tool box this time - and I can't wait!

...

I'm working at the gym tonight. I am actually really looking forward to this. I like talking to people there, and I see it as a huge opportunity to advertise my company.

I still have to wear my GYM shirt, but I am allowed to wear a hoodie when it's chilly outside - and my hoodie has MY logo and slogan! :) Clever, huh? ;)

It's all a matter to letting people know I am here for them.

...

We got the issues in regards to the ads fixed. Well, reasonably fixed.

The thing with the ad, and me not getting enough space in it, is due to the gym's concept regulations. One of the rules in the campaigns is that there can't be other logos or company websites mentioned.

I'm getting MASSIVE help from the owner when it comes to my company, so I really don't want to push the issue, and he has rules he has to follow from headquarters. I get that.

So, the solution is that we're gonna focus on the fact that the gym has an "open house" arrangement for a full weekend, and the main feature is the focus on weight loss and that people can meet me and have a talk about it, along with hearing more about classes and individual coaching. It's a brilliant opportunity to have exposure in a large newspaper, have a full weekend where people (hopefully) will show up and talk, and the sales will be up to me, obviously.

Since we can't put in a logo, we will be referring to my facebook page - which is growing stronger by the minute. It's all good, and I know that we can get further focus from there. It's not THAT big a deal.

Also, we agreed that I don't pay half of the ad price. I pay 20% instead. It's financially a much better deal - I just hope I can get people to come.

I will do a "sign up now" special there too. I'm thinking of either a discount, or simply give them a month at the gym at my expense. I am sure I can get a good deal on those, as I ensure memberships to the gym at the same time.

Everyone wins.

...

I'm pretty annoyed that I let the stress take control of me yesterday. It's not damage beyond repair, but I do want to go lower in weight, not higher. This is what frustrates me now and then.

I want to be not just the good example of weight loss, but the GREAT AND ABSOLUTELY AMAZING example.

I love my new picture. I love seeing how much muscles have grown the last few months, but it really is time to lower the body fat percentage.

Doing this will make me look WAY sharper and WAY more prime for business.

I'm still focusing on the right things. I know everything that I need and I implement it on by far the most days. Trouble is the days when I don't. I go WAY over on those days, just from a couple of stupid decisions.

Those decisions are what needs to go. It's 100% obvious to me.

Anyways, back in the saddle today, doing well. Going as low as I need in my calorie intake, with full focus on macros and the mission. :)

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Getting my banners! I love them!
- Seeing more and more activity on my weight loss facebook page.
- Getting shares of my pictures on other facebook pages too!
- Wife!
- Morning coffee!

Have a great day! It's easter break here starting tomorrow and all the way through Monday. I'm not sure how much I will be on FatSecret, but just in case... HAPPY EASTER to all!

Life is good!

Keld...I am going to quote a newer movie here in the USA. "God is good...all the time. And all the time...God is good". Your recent upsets have led you to this amazing opportunity.

kmunson - It becomes more and more clear that I needed to "get rid of" the old job to start doing this. Sure, I don't have as many clients as I would like (yet) but I only just started. I know that more will come - and I know I can help BY FAR the most of them.

Keld, you are such an awesome inspiration for all of us "really big people", you just HAVE to blow it sometimes, just a little, so we know you're HUMAN, hee hee! Your sense of focus & can-do attitude are a constant encouragement to me personally. I'll never be Wonder Woman, but maybe some day I'll sort of resemble Betty Boop? LOL! Your banners look incredible, & thank you for the translation. Your before & after shot is just shocking beyond words! Those little kinks you mentioned will all work out fine, so don't stress over them anymore, & having your logo on your hoodie is such an excellent idea! I wish you HUGE SUCCESS (pun intended) in your new business. I know you will succeed phenominally, & any who don't succeed with you it will be their fault & not yours. That is great that the gym owner is helping & supporting you, & of course it benefits both of you, but it's still a very positive & encouraging thing. I look forward to hearing of more success stories from you in the near future!
