From yesterday

I started this weight loss journey because I believed that it was possible for me to lose weight. Somewhere though, I lost the vision of my beach body and just started recording calories instead of controlling them. Today, I have a renewed motivation to reach my goal. I am going to use today’s photo as fuel for this fight. Since I’ve started a new career path, let’s see how I can meet my weight loss goal by the time I graduate my web development program (just in time for interviews). That gives me 18 months. Let’s call this day 123 (1). With any good pace, I’ll be a little more than half the person I am today.

Charity: Water Campaign

On Saturday, September 6, 2020, I became a Spring Member, pledging a donation to charity: water every month. I also started a fundraising campaign for charity: water called, “Songs For Water.” This fundraiser is to help charity: water build the much needed water projects around the world. Read my post about this. With just a little work, we’ve already raised enough money to give water to one beautiful life for an entire year! Your support really goes a long way. We have 105 days left before this campaign ends. Let’s smash this goal!

Best of Mental Health and Wellness,

Goodnight.
