kingkeld's Journal, 08 April 2014

Good morning!

Phew, it was a long, busy day yesterday.

I had clients, classes, walks, worked on my website, and prepped a few things for today too.

It's busy being the King! :)

I did good on my calories, and reasonably good on my macros. Not perfect.

I opted for some easy food choices, and that cost me a little on the fat and protein balance, but overall I did ok.

Looking at averages for 7 and 28 days, I weigh less today - so I am pulling the numbers down nice and slow. I like that. The same goes for every single other number that I register. They are slowly looking better.

All I gotta do is keep going, and thing will be fine.

It will be a long, slow weight loss, and that is perfectly fine with me. I am in no rush. The slower the better anyways.

I really like the level of eating that I have now. I like that I feel that I have "food freedom". I can do what I want, if I'm smart about it. I mean, what's there to NOT like about that?

I eat more food than I have in several years, I eat better (and more fun!) food that I have in a LONG time, and when done right it all points to me losing the weight I want to.

It'll be interesting to see how I am doing on this in a month, when I have had full and proper focus (hopefully!) for enough time to have all my stats adjust fully.


Today, I'm working a few hours at the gym. I'll be there at 7 AM, just to help out a bit. I'll be chatting with the users, and hopefully advertise a little bit.

At 10, my boss will come and take over, but first we're gonna have a little meeting about an open house deal that we're gonna do at the OTHER gym, the one at the remote location.

I'm gonna just in with him and do a FULL page advertisement, selling my classes and my services, along with him advertising the gym.

The price is a wee bit steep for a newly opened company, but I do know the importance of advertising. Essentially, I just need a few "bonus" clients to pay for it - and I really need to get the word out about my services.

There are quite a few others that offer weight loss services here, as I am sure there is everywhere else in the world too. I do firmly believe that what I offer is a LOT easier for people, and I know it works. But I probably need to be a little LOUDER than some of the other ones, to attract attention.

That's pretty easy though. I just need good advertising.

All the advertising I see from others is basically in the "personals" section of the papers, right alongside the free kittens and people selling used bicycles.

I never even make it to that section of the newspaper, and I believe that it's more or less pointless to advertise there.

Instead, I'll be having a half page all to myself, an ad that is loud and clear, that sells me, my classes, my coaching, and ask the question (slightly modified) "When is the last time you're gonna lose weight?".

It will have my logo and website, and let people know where to meet me in person for a talk about it.

The trick is to make it uncluttered, with as much info as possible, without losing the message. I'll be working on that today. Shouldn't be too hard.


The classes yesterday were amazing! So many people are there, both the classes are FULLY booked, and I love that.

Several people started last week, and they were SHOCKED how much weight they lost this first week. These are people who have "tried everything", just like the rest of us, and they just couldn't believe that they lost weight, and that they didn't feel that they were even trying. THIS is what I love about losing weight this way.

I will be looking into doing a 3rd class now, selling more tickets and getting more business.


So, in a few minutes I'm gonna go walk.

I'm not sure I really need to, but I feel that I want to. My body is asking me kindly to go walk, and I am going to do what I am told.

I'm tired and I hope it'll wake me up to go out in the fresh air.

I slept really bad - too much coffee yesterday at the classes - so I have been tossing and turning all night. Not good, especially not if I am going to be nice and charming at the gym. :)

It's been raining all night, and it still is, but it looks like it's slowing down and that I won't get all too wet. I hope I'm right.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- Wife!
- Great focus on my food and weight!
- Working the gym today!
- Successful classes!
- Morning coffee!

Have an amazing day, everyone! Life is good!

I feel much much better than I did a month ago. Of course, it's a scary time, starting my own business, but I think it could all come together for me. So far so good.
