    I was watching a fitness channel and saw a pledge to this cause. So I decided I would make my own pledge toward a cause that support our real heroes.

    My goal is to have lost 20 pounds by July 21, date of the event. On top of the $30 I'm pledging now, every pound I'm off from my goal I'll donate $2.

    I post this so there is proof and it is written so I would be held accountable.

    it is always good to lose and keep the unnecessary weight off. unfortunately I have the want but not the will at this time. so be healthy and beat your goals.

    I meant to add something to this. On top of that every dollar I spend at the vending machine I'll double that to the charity.

    I've done a decent job staying away but I noticed it creeping back in my diet slowly (ie like today).

    And right now I owe them $2.

    double every dollar??? I would go broke real quick if I did that. Might limit me for a day or two but some habits are hard to break. Lets see, I spent about 10 bucks in vending just last night.

    Actually that is really a good idea :)

    What I have another month?

    I came here to report I was 3.2 pounds short of my goal. But I actually thought I pledged 25 pounds. So far I lost 16.8 pounds. So to make it challenging I am going to raise the stakes to 25 pounds. I felt defeated and limped into this day as I struggled the past few weeks. Knowing I still have another month was the kick in the pants I needed. So lets go all in.

    so what that you were 3.2 pounds short, even the 16 you lost is still a win.

    You're correct my friend.

    I said that to say I allowed myself to let my foot off the gas. Now there is a difference between having a cheat day or going on vacation, but to totally take my foot off was me slacking. I was looking for that push and motivation to give me a second wind and I got it. But yes thank you guys for the encouragement.

    Proud of you PC!

    Keep up the good work! One cheat doesn't cancel the good work you're doing and have done. Tell the negative voice in your head to shut the $&@€£ up!
