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!
