My NYF Diary
Default Koh's blog - "Not the Nine O'Clock News"

Hi all,

Why the strange title? Well, those of you approaching my age would KNOW - but, for the rest (you young'uns), it means "you aren't going to hear what you might think you would".

And that is because (for those that don't already know) I have never done Cohens.

I was invited by Asy to "take a look" at this forum - she and I go way back (from another forum) and she was excited about this place (her baby ). So, I said "Sure, love to take a look". That was around May 2007 - and I got the surprise of my life. Here were all these people just getting plain excited over their weight-loss - and the excitement, camaraderie, etc. just got to me. So, I stuck around, read everything, learnt a LOT !! And then, plucked up the courage to post a reply to a question that didn't involve weight-loss, but (as a frustrated mathematician) I was able to answer.

Time went on, and I simply got to love being here !! So, I've stuck around, added a bit here and there, encouraged, and generally just appreciated what all you good people are doing for yourselves. Then someone mentioned "Oh, so you're a cheerleader?" Hehe, well Yes, I guess that is what I am now. Let's face it, there are ENOUGH folk "out there" giving you all the negative side of things - you KNOW what I mean there - so a little more encouragement can't hurt, eh?

And, as one who HASN'T walked your path, I guess I can impart a view (now and then) from "the other side" - so, I've become "part of the furniture on here" (but maybe I'm like an umbrella stand in your laundry - I sorta don't fit at times .... :P If that's the case, just let me know - I'm here to learn too )

Over time, I had thought of starting a diary, just so that people starting would know who "Koh" is - but never did. But now, after checking with Asy (and getting a VERY positive response - thanks darl ) here it finally is.

So, what will the Koh diary be about?

It likely won't be about weight-loss (I'm around 6'2" - or 1.88m - tall, and weigh around 80Kg - so not anxious to lose too many Kgs )

What I thought this diary CAN do, is just to let you all know when I WON'T be around, occasional thoughts I have re stuff :P , and maybe be at least SOMEWHERE where new readers can "check up on Koh" as they are able to do with everybody else on here. Just so they KNOW I'm an umbrella stand :P


To all of you, THANK YOU for welcoming me on here. I appreciate what you are all doing for yourselves, and wish all of you the best.

And, to you, Asy girl - I'm sure you are now beginning to understand just how bloody fantastic this forum is becoming to so many - and ALL because of you - your vision, your example, your diligence, your inspiration, your sweat, and your dedication.

THANK YOU so much for this awesome place

Koh

Yes, its about time you got this diary up and running - oh the forum diamond in the rough ! That is you! Our very own cheerleader and the oracle on so many topics! Always got the best way to brighten our day and also thanks for the accolade to Asy best coming from you as she wont think your just sucking up ! And yes you can bring the devil out in all of us from time to time and shine light and humour on what used to be such a serious business! Not any more thanks to Dr Cohen, this forum (thanks again Asy ) and you Big Ears!

Koh, I've only been on here for a month & I never knew you weren't a Cohenite ( the weight losing type that is! )
You really do impart alot of wisdom & positive support & I for one am glad you decided to hang around!
Thanx Koh,
From Sharlene

ps. A photo to go along with your diary would also be a treat! Would be nice to put a face with the words!

Thanks Koh.

I guess we've been friends for probably the best part of 10 years... Yeah, scary, but it IS that long. We were friends before I moved to BNE from Melbourne, and THAT was 6 years ago...

I've always appreciated your wisdom and sage advice. And I'm sure everyone here appreciates it too. I'm happy to 'share you' with them

Guys, Thank you all for your kind words, but, this really IS Koh's thread. PLEASE don't turn it into a thread to me. If you must do that, please feel free to use my (slightly abandonned ) diary... But seriously, I don't need it. I love the forum too... I do appreciate your kindness, though

Koh, I'm looking forward to reading your thread, I"m sure it'll turn into the most read diary of all.

HOORAY FOR KOH

Hehe - well, I guess it will all cool down over time - but meantime, I feel a bit like Jeff Fenech ("I love ya's all") - for now, I seem to be "the new kid on the block" who's been around for decades

Irene - now I KNOW I'm in trouble - you've FOUND my diary !!! :P Woohoo !!

Drexyl - be careful what you wish for .... :P

Asy - yup, it's been awhile, eh !! Thanks for posting darl.... And yep - around 10 years is about right....

Jackie - hehe, love your comments - and YOU are doing so well eh? Gotta love Santa....

Hexi - I already have a head that matches my ears - so it'll be working to get too much larger Don't wish for what Drexyl is ....

But, thanks, girls "I luv's ya all"

Koh

Hi, you beautiful people,


I'm about to embark on a sojourn to Qld (actually, HOME - in Brisbane) for a week. While in Sydney, my time is my own (and much of that is spent on here). But, when HOME, other factors come into play - so I'm likely to be MIA (missing in action) for around a week from tonight.

Don't hold back while I'm away - keep on doing that good stuff that you do, and I'll catch up when back in Syd. Stay safe,

Koh

Hmm !! "The best-laid schemes of mice and men ...." Here I sit at Syd airport - my 19:30 flight has been pushed back and back (electrical storm prevented some landings, and, if landed, planes couldn't be unloaded, or re-loaded.

And every 20 mins they say "Go to Gate" only to find there is ANOTHER delay. I can't be on here much longer, as the Perth flight has now landed (at 22:00) so we should be up and away "shortly" - hmm think I've heard those before - several times tonight....

Cross fingers for me - I wanna go HOME !!
