Join My Weight Loss Competition at DietBet
I can lose weight over the next month. Wanna bet?
In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t posted a weekly weigh-in over the past few weeks. My last Friday weigh-in was December 21 (week 203). With Christmas, New Year’s, and then the flu, I just haven’t been very consistent in tracking my weight loss progress (or gain). I also haven’t been counting calories very closely.
Admittedly, I’ve gained some weight since the last time the scale and I met.
That’s okay, though. Sometimes we have good days, weeks, and months — and sometimes we have bad days, weeks, months, and in my case, 23 years.
I’ve been back on my game over the last several days and I’m ready to well, include you in on the game. I’m starting a game, a contest, through DietBet.
Directly from DietBet:
“DietBet is a game where you’ve got 4 weeks to lose 4% of your starting weight. To begin, everyone puts money into the pot. After four weeks, whoever’s hit their 4% goal is a winner and splits the pot.”
Here’s how it works:
1. Sign up at DietBet and join my game.
2. Deposit $25 into the pot. This is your entry fee.
3. Weigh-in and publicly or privately submit your starting weight.
4. Start losing weight. You have 4 weeks to drop 4% of your weight.
5. Submit your final weight. If you’ve dropped 4% of your weight, you win.
Sadly/naturally, people will quit during those four weeks. For those that are left and have lost 4% of their weight, the pot will be split evenly (15% goes to DietBet).
I know you have questions about how DietBet stops people from cheating (they can and do!) and whether or not your weight is kept private if you so choose (it is), so head on over to DietBet’s official FAQ for more details. DietBet is a huge company and has a lot of media attention — it’s a legit company.
All the kids are doing it these days.
My contest starts January 25th (not this Friday, but next) — you have to join my game and submit your starting weight to DietBet by January 23rd. The game will come to an end February 23rd and money will be dispersed by the 25th.
My goal is to at least get 100 people to join. Click to join my game!
