Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I've tried many times to lose some weight throughout my life, but then I thought of an interesting way to finally push myself. Why not do a sponsored weight loss? Losing weight for a very worthy cause will be a great motivator for me to make some changes towards a healthier lifestyle.
Therefore I have decided to set myself the challenge of losing 2 - 3 stone in 100 days in order to raise money for Action on Hearing Loss (Registered Charity Numbers 207720 (England and Wales) and SC038926 (Scotland)).
I've chosen Action on Hearing Loss as it is the Foresters Friendly Society chosen charity for 2018/2019. It is also an important cause to support, since the ability to hear clearly can be taken for granted by those who have no problems with their hearing. I was born partially deaf but had grommets inserted into my ears, and it completely changed and shaped who I am today.
My weight loss challenge started on Tuesday 12th February 2019 and is due to end on Thursday 23rd May 2019. My starting weight is 18 1/2 stone, so my goal is to reach between 15 1/2 - 16 1/2 stone.
I will post regular updates to keep you all informed of how I am doing in my pursuit to change my lifestyle for the better!
Once this page has closed I will send a cheque of all of your donations to Action on Hearing Loss.
Thank you for your sponsorship and support! :)

I'm pleased to say since starting my 100 Day Challenge on Tuesday, I have already lost 3 pounds! I have achieved this by making some simple changes to my diet, such as cutting down on portion sizes, taking healthier snacks to work for those cravings, and eating slower. If I keep this up hopefully I'll lose 1/2 a stone by next Saturday!
