My goals for this project are,

1) Weight Loss of 200 pounds in 12 Months

2) Train for and Participate in the 2013 ING New York Marathon

3) Make regular updates by blog and video, and staying in touch with my backer's

4) Motivate other's to get healthy

The funds will be used to pay for the duration of this project and the necessary supplies. The budget for this project is as follows,

In 2004 I achieved a similar weight loss goal of shedding 100 pounds in 6 months, and I am confident that with my passion for success that I can fulfill all the goals of this project.

I am looking forward to meeting great people and making new friends during this project and I invite everyone to join me in getting healthy.
