Hi Brittany W,

I just submitted my video weight in and it was rejected because it was not a digital scale, may I resubmit with the same scale? I do not have any other one.

I have won other bets with this scale

Fantastic! I have been doubtful about my ability to do and enjoy this platform. At 73 I am not comfortable on a digital platform of any kind. I also doubted my ability to loose the percentage as that is more than my usual trend. I decided to give myself the challenge at what historically is my worst time of year. I did it and then some as I exceeded my goal by almost 3 pounds. So far this year 65 pounds. Thank you Brittany and crew!!!

Valerie

Go Melinda!!!!

Another NSV !! Day went by FAST, I wasn’t able to stop work for lunch but had to make an Appt by 3:30pm. While out (& starving),instead of drive-thru crap I found a Jamba Juice & got a bowl. Nonfat Greek yogurt, granola, strawberries, banana & peanut butter. I’m sure not as healthy as a salad but guaranteed better than drive through burger.. Woot !!

Thats why body measures, clothes fitting, skin luster and overall feeling are other ways to track your progress. It's not all on the scale

Valerie

I've been eating excellently and my scale hasn't budged in days. There are a ton of other factors that go into what the scale says, but pay attention to the NSV - looser pants, more energy, better sleep, etc. Then you'll know you're on the right track no matter what the scale says.

I cut out a lot of foods that cause inflammation and bloating. Two days in and I already feel less bloated and lighter.

Joined a yoga class at my local community college and did my first online Covid safe workout today. It was very hard, very modified, but I feel great!

Nice job! Great start

Emily K.

I’m a fan of Yoga with Adrienne too. There was one day that I couldn’t do some of it, but most days I can keep up with her. She will also tell u how to modify.

If I have to buy clothes , let’s make it a size smaller and not bigger..... I’m a first timer, so here goes.

Here we go again! Does anyone else have a scale that changes weight based on location? I got on the scale before taking my picture. It had a number. I wrote the word and moved the scale for better lighting. The weight changed by over 2 pounds! I only changed direction, it wasn't picked up or anything. I decided to go with the poorer light and lower weight because I definitely didn't gain 5lbs since the last bet ended but it's confusing. Anyone else have a scale like that?

Yup! But what matters is the progress so pick 1 location and never move it.

Valerie

Great idea Lauren! Thanks for that suggestion!

I’m happy I won but DietBet took $16 away from each winner from the total pot. Seems rather steep.

That's pretty much my position as well, Ali. It's great that there's a payout at the end, but I view it as spending $35 to keep me accountable and to motivate me to try. Getting more than my $35 back is a bonus to the real benefit. And I get the community here that works for me. I totally respect that others feel differently, though. The main thing is find something that works for you and makes you feel happy.

Ali M.

100% agree with you on that Valerie!
