Starting 4-Week Challenge Next Monday to Lose 4%

Monday, February 04, 2013

Recently, one of the Facebook pages I follow, The Anti-Jared at
, mentioned starting a challenge on So far, the Anti-Jared's Challenge has 347 participants, and the pot is currently at $17,300! Everyone who loses at least 4% of their starting weight in 28 days will split that pot equally! Wow!

I don't remember hearing about DietBet until I read about it on Anti-Jared's page, so I decided to explore the website, and it looks like fun and great motivation! So, I've set up a challenge called "Mission Slimpossible!" It starts 2/11/13, a week from today. I'm tired of gaining and losing the same four pounds, and I think that money will be a good motivator!

Want to join me on Mission Slimpossible? I've set the "bet" for Mission Slimpossible at $10, which will go into a virtual pot. (This does require that you join DietBet to begin with, but just joining is free!) Everyone who joins will put $10 into the pot (via cc or paypal), and everyone reaches the goal of 4% in four weeks will split the pot of money!

This challenge is open to anyone, so if you'd like to join me, check out the link (which I've tested) at

Of course, I'll still be on SparkPeople, which provides awesome support and information for free! emoticon

    I haven't been consistent in my own efforts, but the group effort is great! I'm sure I'll end the 4 weeks weighing less than I started, but don't know that I'll make 4% this time. I think I'll join another one in a couple of weeks.

    Good luck on yours!
