Here is an update on my "Reducing for Romania" weight loss . . . Since August 25 I have lost 8.6lbs!! I am happy with that but I know the pounds will start to come off slower soon. My goal is to have lost 15 pounds by October 1. I know that isn't really aggressive, but I want to have an achievable goal as well. Tomorrow I get my quarterly blood work done. And, even though I know two and a half weeks won't make a big difference, I am hoping for a good report when we get the results next week! I also hope the doctor notices my weight loss as well!!!
As far as pledges are concerned, since the last post, I have GAINED (bad word when you are losing
weight but good for this cause) over $16 per pound for a total of $21.33 per pound lost! My goal is to at least raise enough for one person's flight to be covered for the trip. Jana just purchased tickets this morning. The price of a ticket is $1350. As it is right now I have $183.43. If I loose 30 pounds I would need have $45 per pound in pledges to pay for one ticket. The end date will be December 15. If you would like to pledge to this cause, you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your prayers for this endeavor! This should be good for me AND helpful to our team as well.

On Sunday at church I announced that I would be trying to loose weight and needed some help. I asked some people to consider sponsoring me per pound to loose the weight. All of the money that is raised will be given to the team from the church who is going to meet us in Romania in June. I am calling it "Reducing for Romania". I have found in the past that I do better when I am held accountable to others. So far I have had a few people who have offered to sponsor me in this adventure - the total so far is $4.75/pound! I am sure there will be more, but if not, it doesn't matter. Whatever comes in is great.
To begin, I weighed in this morning and will be weighing in every Monday morning - in front of our lead pastor. The end date is December 15 (I want to eat a little during the Christmas holiday. You could pledge, if you like, by commenting below or contacting me, email@example.com. I am hoping to be thinner and healthier and be able raise some finances for our team. Please pray for me.
