In my last blog I talked about not wanting to join the Diet Bet that my sister-in-law and her husband are doing because I don't really have an extra $25 right now. But I talked to my husband about it and he is so supportive. He said he knows I've been unhappy, he wants me to be healthy and if this Diet Bet is what I want, $25 is a small price to pay.
So, I did it. I signed up and invited some of my family members to do the same. Losing any weight at all will totally be worth it. I'm excited!
It starts Nov 6 and the first weigh in will be Nov 4 or Nov 5. Then the game is each player gets 4 weeks to lose 4% of their own body weight. Final weigh out is Dec 5 or Dec 6 and EVERYONE that loses their 4% wins and splits the pot! You do have to submit pictures, privately, to "referees" at both weigh ins: one of your whole body on the scale (either in front of a full length mirror or have someone else take it for you), and one of the scale readout and with a piece of paper showing that day's special code word.
Oh, and it's an open game so you can join, too...just go here: diet.bt/16tRuj4 to sign up - tell 'em Katie M sent you. Or join a different Diet Bet. Or start your own for your own group. It doesn't have to be $25, there are lots of other games with bets of other dollar amounts.
