    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 :)
