My Diet Bet Experience

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! I'm so excited to kick off the new year. I'm also excited about the Diet Bet challenge that I signed up for. If you've never heard of it, check out the video here. In a nut shell; you sign up or create a bet to lose weight. Who ever looses 4% of there body weight splits the pot. The pot that I'm hoping to split is 1870.00! That's alot of cash! Here's a picture of me before my first workout. I will try to wear this outfit every week to track my progress.



I weighed in at 3.5 lbs higher than what a weighed a couple of weeks ago. For details on my 21 day challenge and the weight I lost check out The Weigh In. I lost a little over 8 lbs in the challenge. Why did I gain so much back in so little time? Glad you asked! I stuffed my face for two weeks straight! If anyone put anything in front of me, I.ATE.IT! No holds bar! Now I'm back on the wagon lol! But I didn't go out with out a bang. My last meal was macaroni and cheese with peppered bacon YUMMY! That's not all..........


As you can see, this challenge couldn't have came at a better time. I will be tracking my progress every week and keeping you updated and informed. Until next time..........................

  1. Get it, girl! I'm so glad that we're both doing this. I was almost three pounds heavier when I did my official weigh-in for the DietBet too. And I did the same as you, stuffed myself all during the holidays! But, back on it! Hoping I will keep this motivation after I go back to work! We can do this! You should link-up for Fitness Friday with Desiree @ Going with the Flow!
