I had my annual doc's visit this past Thursday and desperately wanted to avoid [reading] the scale, but I swallowed my pride and looked at the number. The feelings that rushed into my brain were a mixture of shock, disgust, and sadness. Then I told myself I HAD to change.

I hate the feeling I get being the fattest person in the room. I hate lying about going to the gym. I hate the feeling I get after eating an unhealthy meal, knowing I won't be working out any time soon. I love my body and I know I can do better. 

This (DietBet) is me making that effort.
