You may remember a little while ago I wrote about signing up to DietBet. Well, I won!! When I say I won, I mean I hit my weight loss target of 4% in 4 weeks, so I shared the pot (minus Dietbets charge) with the other two players who also hit their goals. I turned my $25 into $58.33 – YAY!
I found it so motivating that I have signed up to do another one. I think it was the accountability of weighing in with someone (I had to send a photo of the scaels and me on them at the beginning and end of the challenge) and they send out a daily e-mail, with little tips which helped me stay focussed. Most of all, as other people were posting their weights and I realised I had a chance of not only getting my money back but actually MAKING some, I REALLY went for it. So now I know I am extremely shallow and motivated by money. Hey ho! The next one starts on the 1st of September and I am in Florida from the 3rd to the 18th. I’m not sure it’s great timing, but I’m hoping that will encourage me to do a bit of running and not eat too much.
If you would like to join in, here is the link to the game I am playing in:
