kingkeld's Journal, 25 November 2010

Today, I have to admit, I am a little bit disappointed. I lasted below 140 for two days, and now I am up there again. Admittedly, not by a lot, just 300 grams. However I swore to never again hit 140. I guess I swore that I little too early, huh? :)

Anyways, that is what weight fluctuation does to you.

I do realize that this is bound to happen, it has happened before and will happen again. I look at my "progress-meter" and see that I am now 1/3 of the way to my goal, and I am truly thankful for that. I know, that each time I fluctuate, and I feel that my weigh is climbing instead of dropping, it climbs to LESS weight than last time, and that shows me that I am still losing weight and I am still on the right track.

This time, it is a little harder though. I was SO happy to be out of the 140's. I hope I will lose the 300g for tomorrow, and finally get rid of the nasty, nasty, 140g mark.

Today is thanksgiving. Tonight, I will not be doing much in terms of dinner, as Wife is throwing a little thanksgiving lunch at our work, mexican style! I am looking forward to that.

She is doing her famous mexiacan rice, carne de assada, pico de gallo and tortillas. EVERYTHING will have to be counted, measures etc. It will be quite some work, but totally worth it. I love her food. Damn her. :)

For you people, who actually read my postings: I want to wish you a happy thanksgiving. I hope you will have a great and safe day with your friends and families. I hope you will enjoy your thanksgiving dinners, and I hope you will - after all on a night like tonight - make some relatively wise choices. That being said, I also hope that you will live a little and enjoy some food you really like.

I have many things to be thankful for this year. My main thing to be thankful for is my wonderful wife. Babe, I would not be anywhere near the happy man I am without you. I love you.

Of course, I am also Thankful for having my wonderful daughter, Dee. I am so happy for our friendship, Dee. When I first met you, you were just a young girl, you were so shy to even meet this stranger that your mother was suddenly dating. I was worried if you were ever gonna let me into your confidentiality-circle and be comfortable with me, being your stepdad and all. I would never have had to worry. I feel that today we are great friends. I love to make you laugh, and I love to help you with any issue you have. I love playing rockband with you. You are a cool gal and a great friend. I love you.

Also, I am so thankful that I finally found the motivation to lose weight, exercise and eat right. It has taken many years to mentally prepare for this journey, and I am finally on my way. I am every day amazed to see how the weight becomes less and less, how my clothes gets bigger (I am soon gonna be able to wear all those shirts I have in my closed, just hanging there eagerly waiting to be worn again), and how I start to see changes in my appearance. No feeling is better than that.

I also want to thank my friends. I have gotten to know so many people this year. My new work family at the Jobcenter. You make my everyday life a pleasure. I really like working with you guys, and I hope - even though times are tough - that I will get to work with you for longer than my pre-arranged period. I hope this will be my work on a more permanent basis - if not now, then later on.

My personal friends - You guys always rock. You are there for me when I need you, and you know you can count on me.

To my dear friends residing in the US: I miss you guys. I hope I will get to see you guys soon - I have had so much fun hanging out with you, and I need to do that again. You guys help keeping me sane.

The RiffWorld community - You guys never stop amazing me. I have heard so much great music this last year. I have gotten so much better on the guitar, and even gathered the courage to start singing - something I have not done in years! - and I have made so many friends amongst you on Facebook. I know I am no longer very big on the RiffWorld website, time simply does not permit too many shenanigans on there, but I am lurking in the back, checking out your music. Trust me, I am there. I love reading your postings on Facebook, love commenting, love seeing what you guys are up to. I would never have thought that I would make so many friends from all over the world in such short time.

I also want to thank our new expat-friends. I am glad Monique started talking with you guys, and I appreciate that I have been let inside the circle to hang with you. I hope we will meet face-to-face sometime in the near future. You guys seem like great people, and I am sure we can learn a lot of things from each other. Being a foreigner living in Denmark is not without worries and challenges these days. Together we can survive it, together we can stay sane. Well, relatively sane. I wouldn't want it any other way. :)

To the community: I owe you guys a LOT! Had it not been for this website and the community that is to be found there, I would not have been able to start losing weight on a more serious level. I would not have had the tools or the motivation to do it. Everyone who knows me knows how important this is to me. They know how dedicated I am to doing this and I am happy to see that this time around I am inspiring others to do the same. That makes me feel even better than what I feel about just losing weight. Imagine that. Inspire people! Isn't that wonderful? I hope - 30+ kgs from now - that I can inspire even more.

I love how my friends keep commenting my endless postings of my weight loss progress on Facebook. I love hearing from you guys, even if it is just a quick "LIKE". They keep me going and motivate me. I need then. Keep them coming! I am sure you get sick and tired of reading how much I gained or lost every day. :) I am truly thankful for your help, support, advice and motviation.

To all those I may have missed in this blog: You know you are not forgotten. You know I love you. You know that I am there for you guys.
