    Five years ago, I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Thyroid Cancer.  After two surgeries in two years and the removal of my thyroid, my weight continued to increase.  I finally reached 199 and vowed to never see it top 200.  My doctors offered me little hope of being able to lose weight as I am still struggling to stabilize my thyroid levels through medication.  Over the next 3.5 years I tried

    Five years ago, I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Thyroid Cancer.  After two surgeries in two years and the removal of my thyroid, my weight continued to increase.  I finally reached 199 and vowed to never see it top 200.  My doctors offered me little hope of being able to lose weight as I am still struggling to stabilize my thyroid levels through medication.  Over the next 3.5 years I tried Weight Watchers and every fad diet known to man, with little to no success. 

    After I retired, I started going to the gym and attending water aerobics classes 3 times a week.  Still I was not losing weight, but it felt good to start moving and exercising.  One day I picked up an issue of First Magazine.  In it was an article on weight loss and it mentioned DietBet.  I was intrigued.  I felt that winning money and not losing any that I invested could definitely motivate me.  I joined my first DietBet at the same time I found an amazing personal trainer at the gym.  I had been reading about all the workouts everyone on DietBet did in the activities section of my game. I couldn’t believe it when after 1 week I actually lost almost 5 pounds.  I was hooked, I couldn’t wait to work out and post it in my DietBet, I started really watching what I ate, worked out 6 days a week and did weekly token weigh-ins.  I won a weekly token weigh in prize. Then I won money on my first Diet Bet game.  I then joined more games, won more prizes and more importantly lost weight.

    DietBet works!  It is a combination of the incentive of wanting to win money and not wanting to lose contributed money. I like the camaraderie and encouragement on the activities boards of my fellow DietBetters, and I love winning the token weigh in prizes.  I would tell anyone thinking of joining a DietBet - DO IT – IT REALLY WORKS.  Joining a DietBet gives you the incentive to eat better and work out. You can’t help but lose weight. While it sounds trite, I mean it when I say if I can do it anyone can.  Thanks DietBet for helping to give me back my life and feel better than I ever have.
