Post by bobafrettTK523 »

I am posting this here, because my weight loss has been a mission that, when I started, was primarily to fit into my Stormtrooper armor better.

I posted a picture of what I thought was a healthier meal choice, and posted it on Facebook. My brother saw that picture, and offered me an incentive, saying "I will donate $5 per pound toward your weight loss, with the money going toward your Relay for Life walk". I had to go purchase a scale, and was shocked when I weighed in at 246.9 pounds. My dad wrote my brother, saying "If your brother loses 50 pounds, your gonna owe $250.", and then my dad also offered $5.00 per pound, and my son, he offered $10 per pound. By the time the McLean County Relay happened in June, I was down 52 pounds! Several coworkers also made donations, and I raised over $1,000 for the 2018 Team Imperial Walkers, American Cancer Society's, McLean County Relay for Life efforts!

That, and I feel a heck of a lot better. When I attended the formal in 2018 in my suit I got married in, I had lost about 10-12 pounds, I am currently at 70 pounds gone, and had to get a new suit for this years formal, because the other suit I wore last year is way to big on me!!!!!!!



Money raised $1178.50 (Funds raised are included in the fundraising total reported in the 2018 McLean County Relay for Life mission report)
