(Bump) 65Pounds4Pattysue

This was originally posted on 5.12.08. Ben is making great progress...you seriously need to check out his latest posts and the pictures that show his weight loss so far!

Meet Ben Roberts, a CFHusband blog reader.


I received an email from Ben a few weeks ago. Ben has come up with a hilariously awesome idea to both lose weight and support for the CFF in honor of Tricia called "65Pounds4Pattsue". Ben has set a goal, beginning today, to lose 65 lbs in one year or less by getting people to sponsor him by donating directly to his CFF Page and ultimately raising $5000 for CF research! Every penny goes directly to the CFF!

He has begun blogging about his experience, and has already had several members of his family, including his wife, join him in his quest. Check it out Here and at least consider cheering him on by leaving an encouraging comment.

Tricia and I have committed to donating $1 for every pound that Ben loses over the next year!

Way To Go Ben!!!

How cool is that?! A way to give you inspiration to loose weight and to raise money for CFF at the same time....... that is worth thinking about.
