Day 29: DietBet
So, I did a thing late last night. I stumbled across DietBet and impulsively joined a 6-month bet. DietBet, as I learned right before I signed up, is a website/app where you basically bet money on losing weight. Depending on what bet you choose to join, you have to lose a certain percentage of your weight by a certain time frame in order to hopefully win back your money and then some.
The bet I joined has six weight loss targets, one each month of the bet, that I’ll have to reach in order to win some (not much) cash. The first weight loss target is a month from September 4th, and it’s 3% of my weight (3.81 lbs).
That’s a little more weight that I had planned to lose this month by doing my Experiments 1 and 2. But, I joined DietBet for the motivation (considering I can be pretty competitive at times), so I’ll just have to weigh the pros and cons before I commit to it 100%. I have 14 days to decide. A 3% weight loss goal isn’t unreasonable, but it may require some changes to my aforementioned experiments. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Final step count: 15,569
Current step goal streak: 2 days Previous step goal streak: 13 days Longest step goal streak: 13 days
