My dad's side of the family is all overweight. They have high blood pressure, weak knees, diabetes, etc. I realized that I didn't want to end up like that. My husband is in the Air Force and stays physically fit. I didn't want to hold him back from doing anything. I want to be able to keep up with him on all the adventures we go on.
I decided to try DietBet because I liked the accountability it provides. I had to consistently weigh myself, work out, and make healthy eating choices. I don't like wasting my money, so I figured this was motivation to get it back.
Diet Bet worked for me because I was able to have fun losing weight while making money. I was able to get my friends to join me in challenges and compete with others, and compete with myself. This program works because it pushes you to keep yourself in check. You can have a cheat day, but get back on the wagon to continue your healthy lifestyle.
At first I was trying to not have all of the medical problems my relatives have, then I was trying to keep up physically with my husband when we go on vacations. Now, what motivates me is the fact that I have motivated so many others. I have friends and family members working out and watching what they eat because they were inspired by me.
I won almost $400 with DietBet and used it to go on a vacation to Las Vegas for my anniversary. My husband and I had the time of our lives and it was even sweeter that the money I won from losing weight paid it for. Plus, I was able to keep up with him!

"…the thought of being a part of each player’s journey is heartwarming and encouraging..."

It seemed as if I had woken up one day, looked in the mirror and did not know the person looking back at me. I was horrified. The scale showed the highest weight I had ever seen at 252 pounds I was depressed, sick and feeling as if I had hit bottom ground. I decided to get serious, not about losing weight, but about changing my life forever and getting healthy. I sought out fitness expert Jillian Michaels to help me begin my journey. I joined Jillian’s online website which helped me to gain the knowledge I needed to begin logging my food, exercising daily, shopping organic and eating clean.
Jillian invited me to join a DietBet she was hosting. Initially, I thought there was no way I would bet money to lose weight. I visited the website and decided to give it a try: just once. Well, here I am 10 months later and ready to sign up for my next bet!
DietBet has given me the motivation and accountability to continue on this long road, most importantly, it has connected me with people who feel the same as I do and are going through the same battles I am. We become family. It is funny how DietBet has brought out the competitor in me. This is definitely a bet I will not lose. I love the quote that everyone uses at the end of a game-we are all winners because, even if we haven’t made our goal, we still lost!
I will absolutely continue to recommend DietBet to anyone. It is a fun way to lose weight. I believe it is the accountability that keeps me the most motivated throughout each game and the thought of being a part of each player’s journey is heartwarming and encouraging.
Although I have not yet reached my goal weight, I am in the best shape of my life, weigh 139 pounds and wear size 4 jeans. It will be great to know that even after I reach my goal weight DietBet will be there to help keep me in a healthy weight range.

"It’s not just about me moving, but influencing my kids to be active too."

I grew up as the fat kid, became the fat teen and continued on as a fat adult. I didn't have any health issues so wasn't too worried about it, although of course I didn't want to be fat. But when you don't have healthy influences and become comfortable with the extra weight, it's hard to be anything else. After having my first child I realized this wasn't a good example I was setting for my son and wanted to be better. Then I had twins and blew up like a blimp. Suddenly I was experiencing a lot of pain, extended recovery time, mobility problems and just wasn't able to do a lot of things. I was in physical therapy trying to get myself to a place where I could function normally again. The weight was not helping the endeavor. In January of 2014, I got on the scale and maxed it out. I weighed in at 325 pounds. That was the absolute highest of my adult life. I was uncomfortable in my own skin, avoided being in pictures, and couldn't keep up with my 3 kids. Diabetes and heart disease were my top two concerns. With all these things floating in my mind, it was time to really get myself under control, get the weight off, and be a good and healthy example for my kids.
I joined DietBet because a friend was hosting a game and looking for players. I figured it was as good a place as any to start my journey and maybe the money would help keep me motivated. I started slow to make sure I didn't hurt myself with any exercise. I joined an exercise group specifically for moms with young kids, which helped a lot. This was crucial for me in the beginning because of the pain issues I was having. Knowing there were ways to exercise that wouldn't hurt kept me going back. We started making time for family walks and bike rides. I have a daily dance party with my little ones as we make breakfast and start our day. It’s not just about me moving, but influencing my kids to be active too.
I started experimenting with healthy eating. I don't believe in diets. I have chosen lifestyle changes for my family and myself to encourage life long healthy choices. It is all about balance. I'm still experimenting and mixing things up, but I know my family is now getting the best nutrition I can possibly provide for them.
I think DietBet worked because of the community support and encouragement every player receives. It is amazing how much more motivated you are when everyone is cheering you on and on your side. The money doesn't hurt either. I don't like to lose or lose money. Knowing it was on the line kept me moving. The people I have met through the games have to be the best part. I have made some great friends from all over the country. I have never encountered a single negative player and everyone is genuinely on your side, happy for your successes and sympathetic of any set backs. We all have the same goals and want everyone to get there.
Amazingly, I have succeeded. I've now lost 100 pounds! I'm not sure I believed I would do it, but I have. With an amazing amount of willpower, determination and a little stubbornness, I have done it. I can now jog next to my son on his bike. I can wrestle on the floor with my little ones and get up again without using furniture to lean on. I can move without pain. There have been many ups and downs, but I refuse to give up. I have more to lose, so my journey is not over. I WILL reach my final goal weight. I wake up each morning to the sound of the 3 most important reasons any mother could have to make the right choices. I can only hope that seeing my battle with obesity and the work I am putting into getting healthy influences my children and their future choices. I will win this battle for me and for them.

All of my life I have been an athlete. After College I was no longer involved in any sports and I found myself gaining weight. I then refocused and got back into the gym. I lost the 40 pounds I had gained. In 2000 I had a pituitary tumor removed and was placed on prednisone after the surgery. I rapidly gained a lot of weight. Within a few months I had gained approximately 60 pounds. I thought I would take it off once I have recovered. When I recovered I had gained over 70 pounds.
In 2003 I got married and less than a month later was pregnant with my daughter. I added another 20 pounds after her birth. Three years later I had my son, which also packed on an additional 20 pounds. I found myself with this wonderful new family and over 100 pounds overweight. I was so upset with myself. I could not believe I had let this happen. I submerged myself into being the best Mom I could. I promised myself I would lose the weight before my kids were old enough to know their Mom was morbidly obese. I did not want my weight to affect my kids negatively. I didn’t want them teased because of me. Before I knew it they were starting school and I had not lost a pound. I had tried everything.
On January 1st 2014 I finally had enough. I told my husband I was sick of being embarrassed of myself and hiding from everyone. That is when I found DietBet. I was reluctant at first. I researched it and believed it to be a safe site. Little did I know this was the day I began living again. I was instantly hooked. The people on the boards are so motivating and encouraging. I found myself completely taken in by it. I learned that I am extremely motivated to not lose money, even more than winning money. DietBet is the best platform because you are betting on yourself. It is all up to you. I was hooked immediately and began to play more than 1 game at a time. DietBet has been a huge motivator to my weight loss success. Meeting other players who have the same goals and drive that I have has been instrumental in my weight loss journey. I have lost over 70 pounds to date and plan to lose another 30 pounds with the help and encouragement of DietBet.

Over the years I have tried dieting and have failed over and over through many different attempts of going to the gym or doing workouts in my basement all alone. Only a couple months after my son was born I decided that I wanted to be the dad that he deserves. After plumping up to 335.8 lbs it was time for a change. I heard about dietbet through a YouTube channel and thought I would give it a try. I am on my 10th dietbet game right now and have lost 96 lbs to date and will hit that 100 lb mark here soon. Dietbet has been an incredible motivator for me to continue pushing on when it gets hard or when I want to stop and eat at the Brazilian Rodizio. My favorite part is there are people there with the same goals, not only to lose weight, but to run races, lift weights, eat cleaner. When I first started my journey I about had a heart attack but recently ran a half marathon and am training for a full marathon. Without support and advice from others it would have been hard to get to where I am today. If you are thinking of joining dietbet I would tell you to give it a shot because you are going to be hooked and in a couple of months you are going to be looking great but even better, feeling great.

"DietBet makes sure everyone wins if they meet their goal"
My entire life my mother has been obese. My fear of being as large as my mother brought on anorexia. My obsession weight
My entire life my mother has been obese. My fear of being as large as my mother brought on anorexia. My obsession weight loss diminished when I left home. I typically give credit to my first love for making me feel more comfortable with my body. It wasn’t till I started my first office job that I started gaining an unhealthy amount of weight. My weight went up to 215lbs in less than 2 years. It wasn’t till I started a new relationship that I started caring and worrying about my body image. I hated every full body photo I saw of myself. Toward the end of our relationship we landed an audition for a weight loss couples show. The production paid for a personal trainer, nutritionist and therapist to help with our weight loss. I went from 220lbs to 170lbs in 6 months.
It wasn’t long before I had gained all the weight I lost plus more. I got up to 220lbs in less than a year. For a year I tried different fad diet pills and going to the gym sporadically. Nothing was working and I was bigger than I had ever been. In 2013 a friend told me about DietBet. I joined my first DietBet and started my journey.
Even with the stress of a break up and moving I’ve lost 50lbs with DietBet! I went from 220lbs to 170lb in two consecutive 6-month competitions. I’m very thankful for your program it has made my life a great deal happier. I hope to reach my ultimate goal with DietBet’s help.
The motivation of money was a huge factor. Money can be extremely motivating. Sometimes weight loss competitions with money, as a prize can be defeating or stressful if you don’t lose the most, but not DietBet. DietBet makes sure everyone wins if they meet their goal, which adds to the motivation and takes away the stress. I gain money if I reach my goal doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing. Weight loss + Money gain that’s a win win in my book.
