kingkeld's Journal, 28 November 2012

Good morning, FatSecret.

I'm down a couple of hundred grams again, and looking at my fat percentage, it's down almost a whole percent since yesterday - which indicates that more weight loss is on it's way. :)

When I reached goal, my body fat percentage - according to my probably somewhat inaccurate smart smart scale - was all the way down to 5 percent. These days, it's around 20. It gives me a good idea that it's no longer fluid that is my problem. Instead, I need to focus on the real type of weight loss, which of course I am doing now.

It's actually good to see, though it's kinda scary that I am up 15% fat. That's a lot. It fits with the amount of kilos that I need to lose though. It's was definitely a wake up call to see this.

I'm doing great on my journey. I'm sticking to plan 100% and enjoying it - especially since I see results! Results makes everything so much easier, doesn't it? :)

I've been reading journals from my buddies a little more thorough lately. You guys are so incredible. I see a lot of you doing amazingly well. I also see some struggling, and it looks like you are pretty much in the same place as I have been. We try, we quit, we try, we quit. Well, for me it feels like I have stopped trying and started DOING. This has made all the difference for me.

Obviously, I gotta watch out being too cocky on this. It's not even a week since I rebooted, but I am feeling very good about it. It's nice.

Actually, I wanted to show you a couple of photos.

This was taken Friday morning:

And this was taken yesterday afternoon:

It's not a HUGE difference, but I do see (and feel!) a clear difference in my face, after only a couple of days. It's crazy how things can change. I can also tell that my general well being is changing to the better. I feel less discomfort, I feel less bloated. I'm not feeling as much emotional hunger as I have previously. It's a great place I'm in right now. I wanna stay here in the sweet spot.

I have had literally no cravings for bad things. I have my little box of >1 calorie licorice sitting on my work desk, but I don't really touch it. I don't need it. It's comforting to know that it's there though, and even more comforting knowing that I don't dig in.

How about you guys? How do you feel today? Are you doing good? Are you struggling? If you are, what will it take to turn the ship around and go in the direction you want it to?

Today, I'm thankful for:

- A potentially good day at work!
- Weight loss results!
- A day with NO teaching. I need a little break. :)

Have an awesome day, my friends. I'll be peeking in your journals throughout the day. Life is good!

I must admit, it's great to have the rebooted Keld back again and in control. I'm feeling ok, but need that kickstart to get myself working out again - I miss the endorphins! :) Good night, off to dreamland.. Maybe I'll go for a run there..

I agree - good results DO make it so much easier to keep going! Keep up the good work!

Yeah for a positive 'on a mission' Keld .... I am doing ok... But don't feel complacent - which I guess is good... I know I will always have to be "on the ball" or the weight will come back.

I need to see results myself, and have others notice them. I'm a person that needs acknowledgement and reinforcement and praise.

Sweet spot, what a great way to put it, we all know what it feels like when in it. You look happy in both pics.

I managed to eat well yesterday and today even with the unsettling news the doctor delivered yesterday. That feels good. My head and heart are still reeling. One day at a time.

I'm proud of you, Moose. You're going through a hard time, I know. Maybe actually sticking to plan here can help you hold on to something?
