Ok.. I have to pat myself on the back.
A few months ago (back in August) I was talking about doing this new thing (new to me) called a DietBet. Basically it’s where you “bet” money that you will hit your weight loss goal and if you hit that goal- you split the overall pot with everyone who hit theirs. I’ve won over $100 at this point and my DietBet ending in Feb- I already hit that goal!
I was really nervous about using the number on the scale to determine “success” but it actually helped me with accountability.
I only weighed myself monthly.
I did not meet 2 of my weigh ins and I was okay with that.
I was able to use all my tools to be successful (Keto, IF, exercise, WLS, supportive friends).
This is the scary part… I set a personal goal and I am 13 pounds away… I told myself that doing another DietBet wouldn’t work because I wasn’t feeling confident that my body could lose more than 1lb a month at this point.
Ya know what? Eff that. Why stop when I am riding a good wave? (I talk about motivation in 4 Things to do When on the Motivation Struggle Bus)
So I signed up for another 6 month DietBet (insert squeal of fear and excitement). The worst that can happen is I stay the same weight as I am right now (which is fine!). The best thing would be is me making my goals and making $$$! (I talk about my 2019 goals in Loving Yourself for the New Year)
I’m also pairing this with a StepBet which has helped me stay active.
I’m sharing the link to the DietBet I signed up for. The pot is HUGE! If you are wanting to do this together let me know!
Let’s kick butt for 2019!!!! Failure is NOT an option!
