Run with Jess is hosting a series of Dietbet challenges, the first one starting on December 31st.. I decided to give it a go and signed up today.
The dates of her challenges are:
Round One: Dec 31 - Jan 28
Round Two: Jan 28 - Feb 25
Round Three: Feb 25 - Mar 25
How it works:
- You have 4 weeks to lose 4% of your starting weight
- Everyone puts $10 into the pot and after the 4 weeks who ever hits their 4% goal splits the pot. As of a few moments ago that pot was up to $3660
- You will need a digital scale and a digital camera/Smartphone to submit your weigh in pictures.
I am hoping participating in this challenge will keep me on track with my healthy eating and exercise.
Starting Weight: 184.6
Goal Weight: 177.2 (-7.4)
For this challenge I will need to lose 7.4 pounds which I think is very doable in 4 weeks as long as I stay eating healthy and keep up with my running.
Have you ever joined a Dietbet type challenge? Are you motivated by competition to lose weight?
