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 https://www.facebook.com
/#!/pages/The-Anti-Jared/2
85102642711?fref=ts
, mentioned starting a challenge on DietBet.com. 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 bit.ly/XjpzqQ

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!
