You Betcha

Current Weight: 311 lbs
Total Loss: 38 lbs
Avg. Loss/Week: 2.37 lbs
- Body Weight %age: 11%

Alright, soooooooo we may have celebrated the 40-pound loss a little too hard. I don't even remember everything we ate but I know at one point I was trying to balance as many cubes of feta as I could on each bite of falafel at "Amsterdam" downtown and another moment where I was mesmerized by the smooth coil of froyo piling in my Cherry on Top cup...the point is we did damage. About THREE POUNDS of damage in a single week.

So, in an effort to instill some additional accountability, I decided to join DietBet.

DietBet is a new concept to me where you bet on yourself to lose weight online. My friend posted on Facebook that she was looking for others to join her group. I was transparent with her and disclosed my possibly unfair advantage of having professional help/program to aid me and she confirmed the more the merrier. How it works is in the image below:

You have to have photographic proof of your first weigh in including the use of a code word to verify that the number on the scale actually belongs to you. You're supposed to get your toes in the picture too but Jordan missed them (DietBet authorized the photo anyway...I think because the carpet pattern matches!).

Oh boy...

The pot is $225 and I am NOT going to lose my money. I am going to KILL this bet and I'll use whatever winnings I get on my next weight loss prize (which is set to be a new pair of shoes for our Chicago trip in early September—I can smell the new leather).

Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted on the progress!
