99 Problems But Weight Ain't One

That's the name of the game.

What game? The DietBet game.

So far, 71 people are playing, but it's likely it'll get over 100 players!

Let me break it down for you:

Goal: Lose 4% of your body weight in the next 4 weeks.

Buy in: $30

Winners: Split the pot

Current Pot Size: $2100.00

Start Date: Aug. 19

End Date: Sept. 15

Okay folks. Here's the deal.

These past few weeks, I've been attempting to eat healthier, snack smarter, drink less, exercise more. Well, maybe I shouldn't say weeks, more like days. Anyway, so far, I've lost .4 pounds. That's POINT 4, not 4. I need some more motivation in my life! And nothing says motivation like 100 other friends doing it with you and cash on the line, am I right or am I right?

Roo, over at Neon Fresh, is gathering people again for a group DietBet.

You pay $30 to play (which goes into the group pot).

You have 4 weeks to lose 4% of your body weight. Which, let me tell you something, is TOTALLY doable.
For example: If you weigh 130 pounds, you only have to lose 5.2 pounds. That's it! And you're a winner.

There can be an unlimited amount of winners, so essentially if EVERYONE loses 4%, then you basically get your money back. BUT - - With over 100 people potentially in the game, there are many who are bound to not hit that goal and then voila! More money for YOU!

It's a pretty neat site and I'm kind of excited about it.

The "Official" weigh in is on Aug. 17 and 18. 

"Two days before your game begins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight.
Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting two photos, one of you on a scale in airport security attire; another of the scale's readout with your weigh-in word."

NOTE: We never post weigh-in photos and
your actual weight is kept private by default.

This video will probably explain it all better:

So.... Who's with me??? 
Let's make some mula and shed some el-bees, eh??
Whoo hoo!
(Can you tell I'm pumped? ;) )

  1. OH this is awesome! I really want to do it, but the last week of the bet I'm on vacation in Cabo. I'm guessing that last week I wouldn't be too sucessful...too bad it doesn't end a week earlier. But thanks for sharing! Good luck!

  2. You should check out GymPact. They pay you to work out. You basically say I will pay $X for every workout I miss and then commit to X days a week to work out. At the end of the week the money from all the missed work outs is divided amongst everyone who did complete all their work outs. I've yet to miss a work out. And it syncs with RunKeeper if you're a runner and don't work out in a gym.

    1. That sounds like such an awesome and unique idea. Definitely a new way to stay motivated!

  3. That sounds awesome!! I wish I could do it, unfortunately I don't even have a spare $30 right now :(

    Good luck!!!

  4. Uhhh so this sounds awesome, but I don't get paid in time. Talk about first world problems.

  5. YEAHHHHHHHH!!! So excited to be doing this with you!

  6. How awesome is this?! Love it!

  7. Just joined! Let's do ittt. :)

  8. Yay I joined! Let's do this thing!!

  9. actually have me considering this...I've lost all motivation whatsoever lol.

  10. I really need to do this, but I probably won't hahahah! I am so bad, but ugh, it would be easy money if I just stuck to it and no one else wins, right? HAHA! This is awesome nonetheless!

  11. Hey girl! I found you through Kristen @ WTF & now I totally want in on this (because I need SOMETHING to kick my ass into gear). Thanks so much for sharing with everyone!

  12. That's such a neat website :) I do something similar for myself, where I bet myself a toonie ($2) that I'll work out on the days that I plan to. If I do, the money goes into a pot for me to buy myself something fun, but if I don't it goes into a pot for charity. It's always nice having that little extra incentive to exercise.

  13. I am joining you! So need this right now!

  14. Oh no! I'm so jealous! I wish I'd seen this a week ago so I could have joined in. Oh well. Project-get-slim-for-holidays will have to be reward-less! lol.
    Good luck!!!!
