Remember this picture? Yep, I’m on a scale…..AND I’m smiling. Well, that’s because I had just made my money back in my very first dietbet! I took a couple of months off but on Monday my sister (yipee! solidarity!) and I joined Deb & GGs DietBet….I have no idea who Deb or GG are, but that makes no difference to me!
So I know what you’re thinking….what exactly is a dietbet? Basically you put in the required amount of money to join the bet (Deb & GGs was $20) then you have 28 days to lose 4% of your body weight. A bit of a task, but it is doable (see success post!). If you win you get your money back PLUS the money from the other players that didn’t make it to their 4% loss. So my first bet I paid in $20 and since I managed to lose my 4% I got back $36! Not too shabby! I decided to put that money into a shoe fund and now I have some very cute yellow loafers! Win win!
This round I’m thinking the money would go towards some exercise flooring tiles…would be nice to have some extra cushion when I’m jumping around to TurboFire or getting my butt kicked by Jillian. What kinds of things to you do to stay motivated? Anybody else doing a dietbet or wanna give one a try?
