I just did my first month weigh-in for my Transformer game. (Playing the Mother's Day Game)..So happy I came in under my goal and it was verified within minutes! For the first time I used the dietbet app on my phone and it was so much better than using my computer!!

Just joined my first kickstarter and second transformer. Both begin the first of the new year. I'm a little nervous but also excited to get back on track. I can't believe how easy it was to slip back into my old eating habits because of the holidays. I'm hoping the pounds gained this past month will come off just as easily as they went on once I am back on Keto. Last year's resolution was to loss 70 pounds. I managed to lose 45. This years resolution is to get the rest of the weight off and get into the habit of exercising regularly. I'm not sure how I'm going to fit that into my already busy schedule. We are a four generation household. My mom, myself, my daughter, her husband and their 6 children. The youngest are 3, 2, 1 and the 6th due Feb 3rd. These little girls keep everyone busy. The older two are teens, a senior and college sophomore. I work mornings part time so that I am available to take my mom to her doctors appointments and watch the littles when my daughter needs someone. Not sure how I am going to fit going to the gym into this schedule but I will be working on a solution for that with a goal of getting to the gym at least three days a week for starters. I will be exercising at the senior center which is something I have never done before another reason I'm not sure how it is going to work out. I have another bet with a different website that ends in the middle of May with a very large jackpot. I really want to win that. Lord willing, I will be able to work out all these details during the first few weeks of January.

It was just confirmed that I won my 6 month transformer game. I lost 10% of my weight. PTL! Twenty -five more to go. Gotta get it off before I turn 60 in March. My goal is to be healthy and fit by 60!

OMG-I can not believe I've reached my goal with 4 days to spare. I am so pumped now, I'm really feeling good, enthusiastic and so much more motivated to make my goal-of 40 lbs lost by 11/1/18, short goal is 20 lbs by 7/29/18 for my San Fran/Napa trip. Woo Hoo!!

Hello, I'm very motivated since I signed up for my first kickstarter! I've put on 50 lbs over the last 3 years. Would drop some before a vacation and put it back on and then some when we returned. I have had some tough times in the past two years and used that as an excuse to eat and drink more. Gave up exercising for the most part too! One thing I never gave up on was hope...I still have my favorite clothes from six sizes ago (so I'd have them when I lost the weight!) Now, I've decided to pack them up and donate. I might keep one pair of jeans in each size towards my goal as a measuring stick!

Hi all
I just found DietBet this morning and am very intrigued by the concept. I am 62 yrs young and need to lose at least 50 lbs. I hired a personal trainer in April and now do some sort of movement 7 days a week. Including ChicBoxing, kayaking, hiking, etc. I now need to focus on my diet and hope this will help.
Looking forward to getting started.

Hi, I haven't been playing long enough to understand if one is better than another or not. I started with a transformer and am thinking about doing a kickstarter. I'm thinking they are all amazing, just jump in!

Hi everyone! I'm thrilled to be in a group of women (and maybe some men too) that are in my age range. I've been told so many times that it is very hard to lose weight after the 50-yr-old mark, but I want to challenge that belief and, of course, challenge myself to begin. Since being involved in a severe car accident and experiencing arthritis in both hips, my sports activities have had to come to a halt. This has depressed me a lot and is part of the reason why I have gained around 10 kg. The only exercise I can do is walking, so I try to get out regularly with my dog. Now I will have to 'step it up' a bit more. Looking forward to reading your achievements!

Lisa, don't believe everything you read! I lost 21kgs nearly 10 years ago but put it nearly all on again through stress eating in the past 3 years. I am in the process of taking them off again: 19kgs down since January despite the fact that I'm now 59. Yes, I have slightly more of a pooch from menopause; although actually it could be that the first time round I was doing Pilates whereas my abdominal muscles are very underworked at the mo'. Walking has been key for me: do it! and then let us us know how you're getting on :D

Hello! I'm super excited to try this! In the last couple years, I've started hosting vegan food festivals and absolutely love it but it has also led me to weird hours and stress and now that it is working out, I really want to make sure my health is also great so I can keep doing it forever. Psyched to see if dietbet is the twist I need to get it together.

It certainly has been for me :)

Greetings everyone. I am 54 and went back to school to get my BA. During that time I put on over 60 lbs working and going to school full time. No time to exercise, eat right or sleep. Not to mention the metabolism shift in perimenopause. In October I was at my high point on the scale and started slowly eating right and getting in some exercise, but I got serious in mid-December. I started BB 80 Day Obsession in January, and I am now on my second round and have lost 35 lbs. It's a long slow haul, but I feel so much better. Only 20-25 lbs to go!
