Dear dietbet friend- You have been selected because you have inspired/ encouraged/ liked a post/ or in some way helped me and I thank you for that! Now I hope we can help each other-- I am starting a dietbet called Forget the Fudge ( http://diet.bt/in8Zw ), and people are needed!! My friends outside dietbet are, for a multitude of reasons/excuses, not joining, so I am appealing to you, my DB ppl who have helped me get down about 60#. I still have about 15# to go. Can you help and finish off 2014 better than you started?

Sunshinesdad

I apologize for not responding to your post and your Plea! I hope all is well with you!

You made your goal!!! That is so wonderful. Great Job! Maybe I'll see you someday in a maintenance bet. I'll probably view your youtubes now and then too. Nice dietbetting with you!

Hi Robert, thanks for the comment. I have decided not to do anymore dietbet games and concentrate on other aspects of my journey.

Hey! I know we aren't in the same DB anymore, and I really miss your updates! I know they're still on MFP, but it's not the same! Hope you are doing well :]

Sunshinesdad

Hey Lindsay, Yes things are going really well for me. As of this morning I am now down 121 lbs overall. I just finished what should be my final DietBet so if you want to keep in touch you might want to subscribe to my Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/dalesfitnessjourney

Keep up the hard work. Just an FYI, as I'm sure you've noticed the weight loss will really slow down unless you crank up the intensity. I started out walking 8 miles a day and biking 8 miles a day but when my weight loss slowed down from walking I started jogging and now I run 6 miles in the morning and 5 miles in the evening!! My weight loss really picked up after I switched to only running. Just an FYI if you wanted to kick up the results a little bit. You are doing great though keep up the consistency!!! I have been secretly competing against you and another guy for weight loss!!! Ok, I'm a bit on the competitive side!! Have a great weekend!

Sunshinesdad

Thanks Robert. I am trying to incorporate as much running as I can. So far I can not run much more than 4/10 of a Km without changing to walking but hopefully soon I will be able to up that amount.

Say, I tried entering the username you gave me on my profile page for My Fitness Pal's "Find Friends" page, but it didn't turn you up. Is it SD67?

It doesn't show you on my subscriber list. It says that only those who's subscriber list is public will show. You must have yours set as private. What is the link to your channel?

Knitgirl

Huh. I don't know. I only use the channel to watch workout videos. Let me go see if I can find it.
