The Final Weigh-In

The final weigh-in was completed yesterday morning. Total weight loss was 18 pounds. Not where I wanted to be, but progress. Not sure on the total amount raised yet. I will be sending out individual emails to each of those who pledged. Thanks to all of you for your support.

A couple of quick thoughts. I set the goal of raising $10,000 for the Bartlett House. I hoped to do it through my own weight loss and pledges. That didn't happen. I fell far short. However, over $10,000 still came in. How? After my first story was aired on WBOY, a kind person came in and generously donated in excess of $10,000! So, my goal was still reached, and then some.

This is the end of this fundraiser. However, this is not the end of Weight Loss For Charity. I still have 50 pounds to lose and the Bartlett House needs funds to renovate a new building they've purchased. I'm working on another idea right now. Stay tuned!

Also, WBOY was kind enough to do a follow up story. Here's a link!

Three Weeks To Go

Well, I've got just under three weeks to go. I haven't done as well as I would have liked. I'm down by 18 pounds, which is good, but not where I'd hoped to be by now. I will not reach the goal of 40 pounds, but I am working hard to get to 26 pounds.

Thank you to all of those that have supported me.

Over half way

Well, I'm just past the half way mark and I'm at 15 pounds down. I may not make the 40 pound goal, but I'm going to get as close as I can. I'm still going to pay $40.00 + $1.00 per pound for every pound under my goal that I don't lose if it comes to that.

Going Down

Unofficially down by 9 pounds as of last Saturday. Long way to go, but working hard. I'm going to make it.

Thus far, with the 67 pledges I have, if the payout were today and I'd reached my goal of 40 pounds, I would have raised $1590.00. That's a good start, but I have a long way to go. Thanks to all of you who have pledged so far. If you know of anyone else who may be interested in helping with this great cause, please invite them to come and do so!

Taking Off The Pounds

A good week this past week. Unofficially (weighing on my own scale) I took off 3 pounds. If I loose an average of three pounds a week, I'm on track to lose 51 pounds by June 4. I'm working hard to keep it up.

I'm up to 61 pledges. I need a lot more to reach my goal. If any of you that are following have friends you think might be willing to pledge, please pass the word on.

Just a quick update. It is starting slowly, but the pledges are coming. With the new approach outlined on the participation page I'm garnering more interest. Tomorrow I'll be hitting it hard--going to businesses and talking to anyone I can on the way. It will come together.
