So this is like the 5th Dietbet game I've joined. I completely failed 2 games I joined in November and actually ended up  pound heavier at the end of the month. 

Stupid really because it's my money I wasted and it's not like I'm loaded with money. 

I think I had quite a bit of difficulty connecting with the other participants because I'm located in the UK and they were all from the US. So time zones in communications were an issue. But that's just a lame excuse. 

This game starts just after Christmas, so I'm going to enjoy Christmas and then focus. 

I know I have 3 issues. 

1. Lack of exercise. I use my Rheunatoid Arthritis as an excuse. But if I was serious, I would find 25-30minutes each day to exercise. 


2. I love sweets. The last few months I have been under incredible amounts of stress. Husband had mini stroke and is now unemployed, lots of stress at work with breakdowns in working relationships and just generally losing confidence in me as a person. I seem to have a bag of Sours or mint humbugs permanently on me. I'm always munching on something sweet. 

3. I can't decide what is the best way to eat for me. I like low carbs and high protein. But various fitness/ nutritional experts on the web like Joe Wicks  seem to advocate eating high carbs to refuel after doing HIITS. I signed up to The 90 Day SSS. But I absolutely hated the food in cycle 1 and I didn't have the time or energy to do the food prep required. I also signed up to Josie Gibsons Slimmables and the 21 Day Fix. I joined all 3 of these in the last 3 months. And I followed each of them for 2-3 weeks max. Each one worked, not so much the 21 Day Fix. But I felt restricted by each of them and then gave up. Then I feel disheartened especially when I read the online posts of people who started the programmes the same time as me and are having fantastic results. 


Do I have a problem with commitment and believing in myself. What I need is a personal coach who works with me and challenges me daily. But I can't afford that not when I work in the Public Sector and my job security is weak  

So I'm hoping that doing this DietBet game will make me accountable to myself and I can work out what is going on in my head.
