kingkeld's Journal, 29 August 2012

Hey there and good morning, FatSecretteers! :)

Sorry about the tease yesterday, but I was so excited, and just didn't have time to write more than a note... but had to get it out somewhere!

I got an email from night school yesterday. They had told me that they would start up my class if I had 6 or more students signing up for it. I was told that many times the first time classes don't go through, but for me to hang in there and see what would happen.

So I did.

Well, as I said, I got the email yesterday. I have TEN signups! We are go and I am super psyched about it.

I haven't fully mapped the course, but I know a lot of topics that I want to talk about, along with it simply being weigh-ins (weight watcher style) and "group therapy" to help my class stay accountable.

I think that is the best way to do it. We need the support for us to succeed, and Fatsecret is the clear proof of that. I know I couldn't have done it without the massive support here.


Yesterday was kinda tough. I wanted sugar SO bad, but I managed to stay clear of it. I had an apple, a couple of bananas and a strawberry smoothie instead. Sugar free, of course.

I know there are sugars in the fruit, but these are not what I am trying to avoid. I am trying to avoid the processed stuff, like chocolate and candies.

I did well.

Actually, I did so well that I am down almost a full kilo today! This means a total weight loss of 5 lbs since Sunday morning. Wow. It's amazing how my body reacts to me doing right. Now, if it would just stop reacting as fiercely when I do bad, I would happy. :)


I slept late today, so my journal will be a little shorter than usual. I needed the sleep bad, yesterday was hard - both because of the sugar cravings but also because of work. I had a lot of interviews, and they really drained the hell outta me.

Sorry, JP, you'll have to read the cereal box when you're done with my journal today. It's probably not long enough. :)

Today I am thankful for:
- My class is GO!
- Losing almost a kilo!
- Sleep!
- Morning coffee!

Take care, my friends. It's Wednesday and something good will come to you. I know it. Life is good!

Congrats on the class and the weight loss. I finished my cereal before you were online pal. Early bird gets the worm.

Worm cereal? Probably very nutritious...

Brilliant King :) Running a class like that is amazing. Especially when your pupils can see your success. I think its a fundabidosy idea, shame your not in the UK. You know we will expect full updates on how your getting on ;)

Fantastic news about your class AND the weight.... You just needed an objective to work towards and it looks like the class has given you that :-)

I'm very jealous of the people that will be able to attend your class. You're going to be a great instructor. Congrats on the loss.

I would attend your class if I had the chance :) I know from experience (considering I keep asking you questions) that you are an excellent guide and teacher. You know from experience and that helps. You know what it's like to be fat and struggle to lose the weight. You can say I understand and actually mean it. That makes a world of difference when you're trying to teach someone about weight loss.

Good luck with the class; glad you had so many sign-ups your first go round. And bravo on the holding back the sugar monster!! Each day gets you closer to freedom. Hang tough! I have been sugar free since March, and I wouldn't go back.
