I wonder if your readers would benefit from a good resource for candy fundraising ideas? There are tons of different candy fundraisers to consider. But not all candy fundraising programs are the same."

Can you imagine me with a couple cases of candy in my house, for "fundraising" purposes? Pretty freaking hysterical.

Climbing the Rock
Remember my post from a couple years ago about my 25th anniversary with my company. Probably not. I can't even find the post, I think it was February 2009, so that's in my "old" blog (long story). I weighed 166. I always remember my weight. I chose rock climbing as my activity of choice for my team. So off we went to Vertical World in Seattle.

So, here I am, 20 pounds heavier and my coworker celebrating his 20 years with the company today has chosen rock climbing for the team. Everyone had so much fun at mine that he wanted to do it again. Today I will be pulling my 185 body up a wall. I hope my arms can sustain this extra weight. I have my doubts but I'm going to give it my best try.

Wish me luck!

I remember rock-climbing in high school. It's hard work!

Have fun today!

That is so funny re: the candy. I also fell prey to buying candy from a baby (co-worker's kid) yesterday. I'd forgotten it until now. I think I will send it home with our intern!
I love the idea of rock climbing. But I don't have colleagues who are as adventurous as yours. lol I read your post about the experience. I think that should motivate you to succeed on your weight loss goals...
