kingkeld's Journal, 17 December 2011

It's Saturday afternoon here in Denmark. I finally got some sleep, after a long, hard day yesterday - but boy was it a ton of fun!
The Black Peanut, my band, did our 4th live show, and it was a success! People really liked what we did, and we played pretty well.

I haven't heard the recordings yet, so I have no idea if they're at all any good - the sound was created to sound good in the room, but the sound on the recording may be VERY different. We'll see later.

What I DID do was go through the photos from the evening. I know I've been teasing you guys with these for a while, and they're finally here! Thanks to our friend Frederik for taking them while we were busy rocking.

I found a handful of good ones from the show, and one of me without my bass guitar, so you can all check out the outfit that I got for the occasion. I also but one that Wife took the night before the show, where you can see it all and without the bass guitar - to give more of an impression of the outfit. I prefer it WITH the guitar, though. I really like it, and I think it fits my style perfectly. It's kinda classy, and kinda rock'n'roll at the same time. It's very ME. I hope you guys agree.

EDIT: I changed the photo format from a flash slide show to regular photos. I hope this helps those of you who couldn't see the pictures. Lesson learned.

Oh, and guess what! I DID reach a new low, and a WHOPPING one at that! I am now at 82.3 kgs! I just need a wee 5.3 kgs more (about 11 lbs) and I can to the "I-did-it"-dance! I am not only excited about this, but also very excited for Wife, who lost another kg too. I am so damn proud of her for doing this. She has now lost something like 15 kgs total, and as we went shopping earlier, I showed her a bag of kittie litter weighing 15 kgs, so she could visualize how much it really is. She was shocked to say the least. Well done babe, I love you!

EDIT: After I registered my weigh-in, I got this message:

Yeah, right! I wish! I could start maintaining on Wednesday morning. LOL!

Today, we got up late, so breakfast was skipped, but 1st meal was consumed about 90 minutes after we got out of bed, so I guess THAT is what was breakfast. Omelet with bacon and mushrooms out on the town. Then we went Christmas shopping, and shopping for weekend food. We found lingua, which is very rare to find at the shops here, so we're looking forward to a nice Mexican Sunday meal.

Other than that, not many news. It was a tough, all day event for us to go play yesterday. I had so much fun, as did the other band members, and I think the gang we played for enjoyed it very much.

Today, I am thankful that
- we survived the show!
- my beautiful wife and I enjoy the day together
- Harry Potter on blu-ray tonight

Happy weekend, guys! Life is good!

AMAZING! You look fantastic. You and the wife should be VERY proud. I really want to hear your music. You look great doing it. Congrats on the show AND the weight loss. And, I LOVE Harry Potter. You have a great weekend too and thanks for sharing. Life IS good!

Wow. You look amazing ... really amazing. I can't believe the doc wants you go lose more weight. Oh and please give a big congratulations HUG to your beautiful wife (I'm pretty sure this won't be too difficult for you, knowing how much you love her!!!)!!!!! Her losses are very exciting!!! Your rock n' roll outfit turned out great. I have to admit ... I like the shirt better than the t-shirt you had before. You were right. I too would love to hear you play someday ... pretty sure you'll post a clip somewhere at some point. Enjoy the rest of your day with your beautiful wife!!!

Way to KingKeld. That's a nice looking bass too.

Real "cool" outfit KingKeld :-). The White shirt really adds to the whole look - gives it that classy feeling...... And I love the headgear.... So "now". Well done to yourself AND Mrs KingKeld for the weight loss. I had to "google" Lingua to see what it is..... Beef Tongue ..... Shiver..... I guess I shouldn't knock it, asi haven't tried it LOL. Enjoy :-)

SkInny, Lingua is awesome! It's really really tasty when cooked right. Very tender. I love it, but have it way too seldom. Reminds me of some comedian I saw once, who said "I'm never gonna eat beef tongue. I'm not gonna eat something that an animal had in it's mouth. I'd rather have something else, like maybe an egg...". :)

LOL KingKeld.... Point taken - BUT - you don't eat the shell... Which will have had contact with the !*+#$ LOL.... It's just the though of it. My SIL does pressed Tongue at Christmas and parties.

Hey Kingkeld, glad you has a fantastic time and all was great. Cant get your pictures csomehow but will try again later. Sazy.

Sazy, you might need flash to see the pics - it's a slideshow. If you're on a tablet, it might not work. I'm not sure. They're showing up just fine in Firefox on my PC.

Nice work!! I'm glad you had an awesome concert and a new all-time low, it must be so incredible to see that scale moving so close to your goal!! This whole kg/grams thing really throws me - I have to google it every time to see how many pounds you are talking about!! Haha.. but no matter which unit it's in, it's still very impressive! Sounds like you are just loving life right now, keep it up!! And yes, your outfit looked awesome!

It's great to hear you so excited at your successes - you clearly love life and you must be great to be around. I can't see the pics unfortunately, but I'll get that sorted - I'm so curious.

I edited the journal to include regular photos instead of the slide show. I hope more of you guys can see the photos now.

Erica. I use this general rule, fairly easy to remember: 1 lb equals approximately 500 grams equals approximately half a kilo. So 100 kgs is approximately 200 lbs, 250 grams is about half a pound. I generally just do this. If it's a number in kgs, double it and you will have a close estimale to lbs.

Earthladay - I do love live. There is no reason that we shouldn't. If there are things in our life that we're not happy with, we need to change them. That's what this journey is all about. I'm changing the less happy big me to a much happier slimmer me. Along the way I see/hear so many life confirming things, and doors open left and right. Surely I'm not the only one noticing this. Which leads me to a much longer thread that I will save for a journal one of these days.

Journal easier to look at now ... thanks!!! I am still in awe of how fantastic you look ... well done Kingkeld ... well done!!

Thanks, Moose!

You're just plum skinny! I agree with madaboutmoose, I can't believe the docs want you to lose even more. Congrats on the big drop, and the cool outfit and the wonderful life!! I'm happy for you.
