Check this out:

This is the local newspaper from today - main feature is yours truly!

Front page:


Page 4:


The article basically talks about my journey, and how it bottom line really wasn't all that hard losing the weight.

There will always be ups and downs, but it was never impossiblly hard.

Next week, I'm having my 2nd skin adjustment surgery after dropping the excess weight, and then I am essentially DONE with the whole weight loss project.

Then it is time to FULLY enter maintenance mode, and start focusing more on building (even more) muscle, get fitter, leaner and meaner.

I can't wait to step into this next part of the journey.

I was supposed to have entered it a full year ago, but the surgeons decided to offer me a 2nd adjustment to make my stomach look nicer, and I just couldn't turn this offer down. But what a massive set back it has been.

The good thing is that I at least was allowed to build muscle what I was waiting for my date for surgery.

Just wanted to show all this, and wanted to say thanks to all my buddies who have followed me and supported me. It's been amazing - and YOU have been amazing. You all know who you are.

Of course, the journey is never REALLY over. But instead of having to be right at a specific weight point all the time, I no longer have to worry that I gain a kilo or two if this is because I am working up muscle mass, and I won't have any trouble shedding them again. I will be in aboslutely no rush, as long as I maintain focus.

Life doesn't get any better - and life is good!

Keld.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Eeeeek!!! I can't believe your second surgery is next week already!! Seems like just yesterday you were wondering whether or not you would even qualify for the first.. You are a total rockstar and inspiration, Keld - love the new picture, by the way!

Thanks Erika.

It's wild, isn't it? Time just flies. I can't believe I have now been on this mission for more then three years, and how well I am maintaining.

Sure, I bitch and whine sometimes, when my scale and I don't agree, but this is mostly because I need to meet my goals for this surgery.

After surgery, life is totally gonna change on this.

More food (closer to maintenance level), focus even more on muscle building, etc.

...

My picture, unlike yours, it TOTALLY lacks ice cream. Smile

MummyDee, I have been trying to find the username(s) of some of those who kicked me into gear, but it's been so long.

I'm horrible with names to begin with, and I just can't remember precisely enough to find them. Either that, or the search function here is junk. Smile

The hard part about finding people like the "success stories" here is that they usually move on when they're done. Life goes on, and I can't blame them for doing this. Those people - like me - get a new lease on life, and they're busy living it.

Those that I was looking for, were people who had succeeded in losing weight, and kept it off. The actual weight loss wasn't just enough.

One guy I do remember - There was a guy called Glen around here back then - I had some e-mail correspondances with him, and he was super helpful. Nice guy from the UK, I believe. He had lost 100+ lbs and succeeded in keeping it off for a couple of years.

There was also a couple of ladies - one had a username starting with "Pink", I believe.

Sorry, I can't be more helpful.

I have often thought about writing to the Elders, to thank them. Sadly, several changes of computers, formatting, inbox cleanups and general tech stuff has deleted the contact info.

If anyone of them should still peek here now and then and read this, I would LOVE to hear from them. I would LOVE to let them know what results they sparked in me.

Fatsecret is truly a forum of "paying it forward". This is one of the reasons for me to stick around too. Life is getting busy around me, as everything - EVERYTHING - has changed since October 2010, but I still want to prioritize being here. I feel that I stay focused, and I feel that I can support others. It's a great experience.

Fatsecret saved my life, no doubt about it. It would be the greatest accomplishment for me to save someone else's life.
