DietBet Round 2: Official Winner

Congratulations, your final weight has been verified!

You are now an official winner in your dietbet game!

You will be splitting the pot with the other lucky winners of your game.

We’ll follow up shortly with details about your winnings once all player weights have been finalized. In the meantime, think about what you are going to splurge on!

WooHOO.

I didn’t end up as far down as I thought I would because my scale has been all over the map and I did my final weigh in in the evening but. WOW!

The goal was 4% of my weight per Diet Bet guidelines, but I lost 5.4% if my excel calculations are right. 5.4% in one month. That’s awesome and I am proud of myself.

Perhaps the single most reason I was able to exceed this month’s goal? I tracked. Every single day of the last four weeks, I logged every morsel (down to one dorito one day) in LoseIt. I think that was even more crucial than the m&ms I ended up giving up.

I’m still not ready to set a Goal (and was glad to realize I’m not the only one who has a goal fear) but I’m going to follow Jess’ lead and set a few mini goals:

  • Lose another 4%. I know at some point my weight loss will slow down but it doesn’t need to be this month. I realized from my spread sheet that if I hit the 4%s I will hit one of my goals by mid June. I want to get another solid step in that direction
  • Track. That’s what I did this month, that’s what I did when I started this back in 2010. There is no excuse not to track because it’s all tracked on the scale anyway
  • More water, less soda. OK, at least more lemonade.

Maybe more tomorrow. In the mean time, I’m tucking into the peanut butter sandwich I’ve wanted for two days. #HappyCari
