Thanks for your comments! I don't mean to sound thoughtless, it's just that she makes comments about how old I look when thin, and guilt trips me into eating all manner of fatty food, but if I don't I'm anorexic. Sigh...guess we just have a history... Thanks again! 1200 days ago
DietBet is a website that hosts "Games" that allow you to bet money that you will lose 4% of your body weight in 28 days. All of the bets are to lose 4% in 28 days, but the amount of the bet is different from game to game. For instance, I am in 5 games (the max) right now and two are $25 bets, two are $35 bets, and one is a $50 bet. Everyone's bet goes into a Pot. At the end of the game, that Pot is evenly divided between all of the "winners" (people who lost 4%), minus DietBet's cut, which is usually 20% of the Pot.
So if only half the people reach the 4% goal, you would nearly double your money (minus DietBet's cut). But despite your winnings being reliant on the failure of others, I find the community to be incredibly supportive and encouraging. No one is rooting for others to fail. 1201 days ago
"Are you plateauing so i can catch you up ?? 1 more week and I might just do that you better get moving onwards to onderland - go and keep the doors open I'm right behind ya ! " * I'll tell ya. There's some extreme potential for at least 4 of us to be below 200 at the end of the year. I'm really excited about that. You, Moira and I are loose teeth hanging at this point. Chris is doing well and will probably get there.
Unfortunately, it's kind of occurring to me that 200 is very close to the end of the line for me. My real goal weight is only 5 pounds below that. So I don't know what happens next.
