Diet Bet: The first seven days

April 10th, 2016 at 05:49 pm

My transformer Diet Bet started Monday. I weighed in last Sunday and today I've already achieved 58% of my goal. I feel much better because of the better eating and more exercise. Funny how that is. I mentioned to a friend that the reason I think Diet Bet is going to help for me, is that there is a tangible number assigned to the process, 4% of my original body weight to be lost by a set date. It's not vague in the least. And then I'm rewarded with getting my money back if I make the goal, which is super nice to think about! I will say it does help to be mentally ready to do the work. I was ready!!

I probably did spend a little extra money on food this week as I stocked up on more veggies and a few healthier snacks. However, I'm eating less, so there are leftovers, which means some of the food we are buying is stretching a bit farther.

I'm about to buy a foam roller on Amazon. I'm having some tightness in one leg, which has to be related to the knee pain I had the couple weeks before I started this Diet Bet. The knee feels a lot better, but there still some tight muscles that need some work. The foam roller, along with some videos, should help me progress towards healing faster.

    I am seriously considering doing a Diet Bet for May. I get paid for teaching at the end of he month, so I can justify the money. Besides, I am sure I will win it back! Good luck with yours and I look forward to reading the progress.

    Awesome, great job! I weigh in Sunday nights, so I have yet to see if my week of healthy eating led to further weight loss or not.

    I love Dietbet so much. It's the only thing I've found that motivates me well enough to actually stick to my healthy habits. Glad you're finding success with it as well Smile
