I won the weight loss challenge that I took part in. I needed to lose 7.7 lbs and I lost 8.0 lbs. Out of the 24 participants, 11 people were winners. The pot was $840. I put in $35 and I got a payment of $57.25. DietBet takes out a 25% fee apparently. I’m just happy I got more than I put in.
I didn’t do as well as I could have. I didn’t lost as much in the first week as I did in weeks two and four. I was still eating too much junk food. I actually gained weight in week three, which was Thanksgiving week. Altogether we lost 189.7 lbs in 4 weeks. Good job everyone!

I decided to take part in Geek Out Loud’s weight loss challenge. It’s called Civil War Episode 7: The Fatoff. It started yesterday and goes until Dec 6. Basically, everyone put $35 into the pool. Each person who loses 4% of their body weight in 4 weeks splits the pool. Right now the pool is at $805. I have to lose 7.7 lbs to win.
I lost 90 lbs, but then I put about 25 back on. It’s shouldn’t be too hard to drop 7.7 lbs if I do what I know I should be doing. My only issue is that I hate the word diet because of what it sometimes implies. I made a lifestyle change when I lost my weight. I never changed what I eat, just how much of it I eat.
Anyway, I think I’ll get back the $35 I put in, maybe more. Maybe I’ll get back down to my former weight within the next few months. Check out the page here.
