I don't know what it is about dietbets- perhaps its the money on the line, but it always forces me to be better. I like that about myself. For the past almost full year I have been back and forth these same 10 lbs. Really more like same 5 lbs. I have a mental block, I have a barrier. And while life has been busy and hectic and I have had a lot of ups and downs, I am proud that I have essentially maintained my weight for a year. Especially when I sit at 60-70 lbs lost from last June to now. But I still have 40-50 more to go, and Im not comfortable stopping here. So Im not going to. 


I am going back to basics. Good wholesome food. Less prepackaged stuff. More activity, less stress and way more water. Thats my recipe for success. This dietbet even falls with my birthday in it. And I may induldge (perhaps not until after dietbet is over since its at the end of the game) but I will not go crazy. 


My goals for this week are as follows:


Get at least 6 liters of water in each day.

Eat between 1300-1500 calories, and track them! 

Meditate and Pray everyday. 

Lose 2-3 lbs. 


Thats it. It should be more than doable considering I probably have some water weight on me. The hard part for me is going to be getting under that 179 threshold. I can hit 179- but under it... is yet to be seen. That is where my dietbet would have me end, right at 179.3 but my personal goal is to lose enough to get me under 179 completely. 

Lets do this thing!
