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?

Hi, Joyce-
I am WW also, and I have had similar goals. May I suggest a goal that is a lot closer. A year and a half gives us too much "wiggle room" and we think to ourselves "I have plenty of time." Not so! Time moves much faster than we realize. I have been through 3 weddings in diff years with kids and have yet to be the weight I wanted to be. These dietbet challenges that are only 4 weeks are really helping me to easily reach the Transformer ones. The 4 week ones are much tougher, but the goal was closer. I HAVE learned that it is too hard on my body to try to overlap the diet bet 4's (starting one that is already several days into it when I just came off another diet bet 4).
Didn't mean to ramble on so much, but I want for you to maybe learn from my mistakes. I know you can win this, and WW is by far the best way of eating out there- tried and true and very adaptable (I have a degree in foods and nutrition and try to keep up w/new info)!
