Hi everybody, happy Monday! I hope you’re having a great day so far. Remember how I told you about joining KJPugs DietBet? Well, the DietBet came and went and I didn’t make my 4% target loss, but I DID lose 6.8 pounds – pretty darn good (and close)! Because we had so much fun getting competitive in the spirit of weight loss, April and I are proud to announce our very own dietbet!
The Double Chin Diary Diet Bet will start this Friday, February 15th. Here’s how it works: If you agree to play, you add $15 to the pot. You will be given a target amount of weight to lose based on your height, gender, weight, age, etc. (Don’t worry – it’s not unreasonable). To officially join and to ward off cheaters, you take a photo of yourself on the scale with a code word in it and send it to the DietBet folks to verify. You DO NOT have to reveal that picture or weight to anybody else at any time – your information is kept completely private. The DietBet will continue for four weeks, at which time you can weigh in regularly or keep your progress a secret till the very end. At the end of four weeks, if you’ve reached your goal, you send in another photo of your weight for verification, and you’ll get your money back AND doubled – AND A SPLIT OF THE POT! Pretty sweet deal! If you have not reached your goal, you don’t have to do anything, but your $15 has been forfeited to the weight loss gods.
Because I’m a believer in giving back, 10% proceeds of this game will be donated to my charity of choice, No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to fighting child hunger in America. My last DietBet was so much fun, with lots of fun updates and a great little community of passionate people working hard to get fit. Please let me know if you have any questions at all, in the comments section, and I’d really appreciate if you decide to join if you invite your friends. Let’s do this – JOIN NOW!
