This is the first round (on this bet) I’ve not won.. February for some reason completely disintegrated for me. I put on a couple of pounds at the beginning and haven’t managed to shift anything all month.

From the looks of things a few people struggled this month too! Suggestions for how to reset and get back on track?

I gained right after the last weigh in and what helped me was drinking tons of water every day and eating mostly veggies and protein at lunch and dinner. I tried to finish dinner by 6:30 every night but that was tough. I noticed when I had early dinners I lost more weight the following morning.

I got a bit lazy with my eating in mid-February so I had to tighten things back up. It was a 4-day treat binge that started with Valentines Day. I just hit reset one morning for my breakfast, then again at lunch, until I was back on track. The only decision that matters is the one in front of you. I feel sure you will make it the next round since you’ve done so well!!

This will probably be the last DietBet I ever do. Every time I feel good, like I’m in a calorie deficit and my clothes feel looser and I’m super proud of myself, I have to get on the scale for the weigh ins and become so discouraged. The scale isn’t a good enough measure of success. And unfortunately it’s the only measure this game goes by. I haven’t won a single round. I’ve lost weight, but also a lot of money. I know I’ll get some haters on this post, but I think there’s other people that are in the same boat, and sometimes the scale triggers an emotional response and that isn’t beneficial to weight loss.

i totally hear you. this is my next to last dietbet. i'm pretty close to maintenance weight and the scale is making me crazy. my definition of success now is keeping the weight off, yet i don't want to lose money. thank you for validating my experience. i want to validate yours. it's tough.

The scale is just one tool in an arsenal for health. Inches are another.
I like these because even when I lose the dietbet I feel like I lose more weight than if I had not joined, but it is more than fine if they aren't for you. We all have our own paths to health, and I think instead of haters you will find we just want you to find the best path that works for you to be happy and healthy! Good luck in whatever you choose.

I really wish the Disney trip would have been given away in the last round of the transformer. That was the whole reason I joined this particular game. Hard to keep motivated to play for something that is no longer available. ☹️ And yes I am being whiney, it was a rough week.

I was curious if it’s the same thing for the Hardy Potter one. I’d prefer it at the end as well. Like a

It is the same thing in the Harry Potter one too. I found that out first before I entered into it. Sorry I am motivated by materialistic things, sorry, not sorry lol

For Christmas my wife and I got a Peloton... She rides everyday (I kid you not) and I ride about 4 times a week. I also do CrossFit too.

Any others in the group have a Peloton? My user name is Christmas_Tree. Add me if you’d like!

Keep up the good work all! Remember, this DietBet is a Marathon, not a sprint! Each day is its own accomplishment! 👍
