I acted out the other day. I signed up at $50 not $150, so I believe I have to pay $74. Grant has very kindly offered to spilt the payment with me, although I'm still yet to pay my half. I need to sort one or 2 things out first before I pay

Already paid half...

R' Grant, can you LMK what I owe? And by when? (this thread has been off my radar for a while so I'd appreciate if you clarify..)

Thank you!

I fell. You can read my reaction post here.

I don't know how much I owe, but I'll give $180 to tzedakah. I'll post here when all $180 is paid up. I am rejoining as of today.

Some have written that the financial penalty is not effective for them and that the more effective intervention is concrete changes in lifestyle. I agree, but the financial penalty did save me tens of times in the last 67 days, so  going forward, I'll do both!

Re: Challenge Accepted!!! 13 Jul 2021 18:33 #370786

As a post-script to the previous post, the "rejoining as of today" already saved me!

There were a few times when I was about to give in, and all that stopped me, was the thought of that fine. My financial situation is very tight these days, and the money worked as an incentive for me!

Re: Challenge Accepted!!! 19 Jul 2021 13:58 #371010

I fell again. I don't know how much I owe for the second one, so I'll do the same. I've donated $5 already, so I owe $355. I will update later because I will be making some donations today.

I am rejoining for a $100 knas.

Re: Challenge Accepted!!! 19 Jul 2021 15:17 #371015

I just gave $200 to tzedakah. I now owe $155. 

Re: Challenge Accepted!!! 19 Jul 2021 15:55 #371017

Just paid my half ($37) to gye

Re: Challenge Accepted!!! 29 Jul 2021 16:01 #371285

I gave another $5 to bring me to $150, but then I fell, so I was back up to $250. I just gave $180 to tzedakah to pay up my account. I owe $70. As I wrote in my 90 day thread, I am not recommitting as I am currently not set up for success. If I can get my work devices filtered, I will recommit.

Congratulations to those who made it!

I am recommitting myself for $100. I owe $70. I'll update when I pay the $70. In addition to paying $100 for a "fall," I am also committing to pay $100 if I turn on my unfiltered work devices outside of work. Just turning them on outside of work costs me $100.

Re: Challenge Accepted!!! 08 Aug 2021 16:46 #371513

Just paid $72 to tzedakah. I cleared my balance!

Just paid my $400.

Zero balance (just as how we enter Yom Noraim : )

Can't tell you guys how proud I am of you...
