Help me lose weight! Join me in my Pound-A-Thon and help raise money for poor people who need food!

I am (once again) going on a Pound-A-Thon. (To lose pounds – not gain them.)

My goal is to lose 40 lbs. over the next 6 months.

However this cannot be done without YOU!

I am asking you to sponsor me per pound that I lose. The money will be given to (a non-profit that give money to) poor individuals who need money to buy food (as well as other basic necessities).

Some of you may remember my Pound-A-Thon from May-Sept of 2008. In those 5 months, I lost 30 pounds and in the process raised about $4,500 for this charity. My thinking was that if I can’t eat at least let someone else eat!

My goal is to raise $4,000. That would require getting $100 total per pound, and losing 40 pounds.

Suggested donation is $1 per pound.

Start Date: Midnight on the night of October 9th 2010 (This Saturday night)
End Date: Midnight on the night of April 7th 2011

I plan on losing around 40 lbs.

****Please Note: **** This is not a minimum or maximum; just a rough estimate.

I am starting off at around 225 lbs


Please respond with the amount you can sponsor or fill out the online form here. 

Once the Pound-A-Thon gets started I will update with current weight totals and sponsorship totals.
