Last year, around this time, I decided to start a DietBet. $20 buy in, and the amount I had to lose to win would have gotten me to exactly 50 lbs lost.
And then I got pregnant. And lost by, if I remember correctly, something stupid like a pound and a half.
(Effie, you owe me $20.)
That being said, I’ve had nearly 12 weeks post-pregnancy. I am somewhat more able to cook now that she’s getting on a schedule-ish. And I just finished pumping for good, so I’ll have more time to run and workout. Thus, it’s time to DietBet again!
My game last January was the largest private DietBet game of that month. It made me SO proud and excited since I knew so many of the participants. The pot was $1,220!! 64 players and 24 met the goal loss, thus “winning.” That means that the winners got like, $50. JEALOUS. I’m DETERMINED to win this time.
They’ve tweaked it a tiny bit- it’s now your “goal” to lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks. (There’s also a 10% in 6 months game, which I may consider starting after this one completes.) My Dietbet starts January 8th and will go through February 4th. I made the buy in only $10 so that you can participate even if you can’t drop a ton of change.
You can allegedly sign up using this link, but I’m not sure if that works because I have the game set to private. It’s created so that random people who don’t know me can’t just join, and non-players can’t see any of our game. In the game, you can decide whether or not to share your actual weight with the other players, but know that in my game, no non-players can see any of it.
If the link doesn’t work for you, just comment on this blog post that you want in. You need to give your email to comment, so I’ll have your invite sent to that email.
(And when you join- feel free to invite friends! The more the merrier!)
If you feel motivated to lose 4% of your body weight this month, come join us! If you have any questions let me know. I’d LOVE to have the game get as big as last year’s! That’s why I made the buy-in lower- to make it easier to participate. After all, it’s about losing the weight- the money is just a bonus!
See you in “the game!” I’ll be busy eating tons of crap in my last week of thoughtless eating!
