If I Had a Dime for Every Pound I’ve Lost…

My birthday is coming up soon, and to help me celebrate, I’m asking folks to spare a dime to help improve the lives of others.

If you read this blog, you know that since this time last year, I’ve made some significant changes in my life. I’ve 1) given up fast and processed foods, 2) adopted a largely plant-based diet, 3) reduced my blood pressure and BMI, and 4) increased my fitness level.

While I give much credit to the City of Columbia and the folks at Doctors Wellness Center, the first step in my journey was No Fizz America‘s Hydration Challenge, which I started on 9/1/2010.

Fast forward one year (without one soft drinks, by the way), and I’m in the midst of No Fizz USA’s Walk the Walk Challenge. With 20 other folks, I’m wearing a pedometer and trying to increase the number of steps I take each day.

The purpose of Walk the Walk is two-fold: 1) to show others, especially kids, that fitness can be fun, and 2) to raise $ for No Fizz USA so they can continue to educate and motivate others to take steps (figuratively and literally) to improve their health.

To celebrate my 45th birthday, I want to get 45 people to donate $8 – a dime for every pound I’ve lost – to No Fizz America by the end of September! It’s easy to give; click here. I just made the first $8 donation; only 44 more to go!

Thanks in advance for your consideration! No Fizz USA has meant a lot to me, and I’d like to help them reach even more folks by directing some funds their way!
