“I agreed without hesitation.”

“My godson was in 6th grade when he asked if I would someday take him skydiving, and I agreed without hesitation. But when his 18th birthday came around, I was mired in what felt like an inescapable binge eating cycle and well over the weight limit to jump. Enter my introduction to the “Because I said I would.” movement. The concept resonated deep. I wanted to be an example to my godson that people DO keep their promises, and I lost 50 pounds in the 7 months since writing my promise out on a card. On June 1st, we jumped out of an airplane…because I said I would.”
