Hi Stephanie, saw your picture on Chris & Heidi's upcoming Dietbet. Amazing transformation so far, you should be so proud of yourself for coming this far. Keep up the hard work, we are all here to cheer you on =)

Hey, Stephanie, I've been in the USA. For 2 weeks and have been eating at every restaurant I've missed over the last couple years. And drinking since I'm on vacation. Margaritas at the San Diego County Fair? Why yes, I'll have 4.... I only have an analog scale at the house we rented but I hadn't gone over my goal weight (yet!). How did you do?

I lost 50 pounds (more than double what I needed to win) and I weigh less than I have since I was a teenager. I'm hoping to continue the weight loss but I'm not joining anymore dietbets right now.

I'm very new to this and was browsing the pictures of the players of a new game starting Friday. I was interested in your profile b/c I am also playing for charity and I'm just curious to know which one you donate to. Then I saw your success over the past several months and I just HAD to post something: you are doing fantastic!! What an inspiration you are! Congrats to you on putting in the hard work it takes to lose weight and get healthy. Congrats and best of luck to you in the future!

So far I have donated to a couple different causes on gofundme.com. You don't have to pick a charity through dietbet, they just send you a reminder at the end of the game telling you how much to donate.
Thanks for the encouraging words, it's been a struggle some of the time. I didn't think I was gonna make my last bet. I just did the final weigh in this morning and was under my goal weight by one tenth of a pound.
Good luck!

Nikki

Wow-great work! Congrats on meeting your last goal!

So how much have you lost since you started? You are already 100% on the list of players. I'm struggling but in it for the long term.

Stephanie L.

I've lost 38 pounds since starting the January 6 month bet, 18 pounds since starting the March one. I was out of town the past couple days, so I was up a couple of pounds this morning. I have a 4 week bet ending Wednesday so hopefully I can lose those 2 pounds by then or else it will be the first bet I haven't won.

Good on you! You are already at this months goal, have you made your whole 10% goal, too? I am struggling physically (the scales go up and down every day for no good reason) and emotionally (very blue). These are probably related.... Gotta keep going because this is our lifetime plan, right?

Stephanie L.

I'm only a half pound under the month 2 goal, I have about 7 pounds to go for the 10%. I get really stressed out about the scales going up and down also, it helps to look back at my weight loss for the past few months. Seeing how far I've come makes me feel better. You are doing great also. Like you said, we just gotta keep going.

I squeeked by on this one; had the trip to Bologna/Ravenna and then a day when I just went crazy. Cooked and ate a whole Costco bag of chicken nuggets. WTF? But thank God I made this weight. Travelling again next week so I am not sure if I will sign up for another 30 day game. How about you?

Stephanie L.

I just barely made it too, less than 1 pound under my goal. I'm already in Jillian Michaels 4 week game, it has 20 days left. Once that gets closer to the end, I will probably start another. You're doing awesome on your weight loss, I wouldn't let one little slip up bother you too much.

I'm not in another yet, but still in 2 6 month games. Thinking about another though. Good job on your win!

Yay! A new friend. I'm almost 60 pounds from my high weight, but still have a ways to go. My ideal weight is still 90 pounds away.I just started dietbet in January and it has been a huge incentive. My husband travels a lit and for several weeks at a time and it's just too easy with three teenagers to order delivery.

How's the weight loss going? I am trying to be good, having more trouble than usual, but still being good. Just crankier about it.

I had a few really bad days that involved pizza, chocolate chip cookies and strawberry shortcake but I think I'm back on track now. I have a 4 week dietbet ending Tuesday and I was at my goal weight for it last Tuesday but after too many indulgences I'm a couple pounds above it. I guess I just like a challenge.
