As you guys know, I’ve mentioned DietBet in the past, and I thought I’d talk a little bit more about it today. I think the concept behind DietBet is very unique and a great motivator to people like myself who are trying to lose weight – whether you are just beginning your weight loss journey or you’re just trying to lose those last few pesky pounds.
Here’s how it works:

The idea behind DietBet is simple – you pay a specified amount of money, then you have four weeks from the time the game begins to lose 4% of your body weight. So, for example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you would need to lose eight pounds. All of the player’s money goes into the pot, and if you’ve lost your 4% after four weeks, you split the pot with the other winners.
This is a great way to do it because one person doesn’t win the pot – as long as you lose your 4%, you’re guaranteed to win money back!
You submit two photos of yourself – one of your weight on the scale, and one of a full body picture of yourself on the scale. DietBet confirms your pictures and you’re good to go!
The losing weight part is pretty much left up to you, but the online DietBet community is amazing. Each game has its own message board where you can post your workouts, what you ate – good and bad, encourage others, get encouragement from others, and ask questions. It’s a great way to connect with people who are trying to lose weight just like you.
You can post your weight (it can be kept hidden) as you go, but you are only required to actually post it twice – at the beginning and the end of the game. At the end of the game, you submit another picture of yourself on the scale and of your weight.
FitFluential is holding a DietBet that I am very happy to be a part of – participating in a DietBet holds me accountable for my actions and makes me really think about whether or not I need that second cookie…or third
The Fitfluential DietBet will run from March 12 – April 8th. Perfect timing to get ready for Spring Break!
DietBet is open to anyone and I would love it if some of you would join me in this game! Whether this is your first time trying to lose weight or you’re a weight loss pro, DietBet is a great motivator! If you would like to join in the DietBet with me, you can sign up here: http://bit.ly/ffdietbet
The reason I am most excited to participate in this DietBet is because the last day of the DietBet (April 8th) will mark exactly a year since I started my weight loss journey.
Hopefully, one more picture to go, and I be able to look back on my total weight loss over the past year! Don’t forget to sign up HERE to participate if you want to join with me!
