I had lost about 30 pounds before joining DietBet by using NutriSystem for 3 months.  However, I was getting tired of eating the same type of food and I was hitting a big wall and wasn't budging.  I saw this website and thought I'd give it a try.  I"m now working on round 3 and have won my first 2 rounds.  I know without a shadow of a doubt, that I would not be progressing like I am had I not found this website.  One reason is because I hate to lose a bet, and so I always push hard (especially the last 2 weeks).  There has been times when I stumbled for a couple of days, but I dusted myself off and got back in the game.  Another reason that I'm succeeding is because of all of you.  All of you keep me motivated by reading your successes and being honest about your failures.  We're all in this together!  Let's keep it up and get to round 6 with a healthier/leaner body!
