To overcome health challenges I have gained as my weight has ballooned.

Between 2 different medications that both have weight gain as a side effect plus an ankle that has been injured for 2 weeks (I’m getting it xrayed today to see what is going on as it’s getting worse rather than better) I only made it to 24% of my goal. Which is devastating (especially as I’m signed up to a transformer as well and likewise will not be able to hit goals there while I’m on this medication). BUT I haven’t actually gained weight since starting the meds 3 weeks ago but have maintained the loss that I achieved in the first week. So a small victory even if it’s not the win I was hoping for this round.

Not gaining anything while starting on 2 medications that cause weight gain? Sounds like a huge success to me! You’ve surmounted many obstacles.

Simone C.

Thank you Naomi - some days I was really quite down about it but I am proud that I didn’t gain any extra weight. I even had 2 back to back days of birthday celebrations (my daughters 13th plus a friend’s 50th) that both had pizza and cake, which I enjoyed in moderation. I’ve definitely built healthier habits in the 2 DietBets I’ve done - just so frustrating that I ended up ill during both.

I’ve now been put on 2 different medications that have weight gain as a side effect, so there is no chance I’ll hit my goal this round. 😞 I’ve managed to lose 1.2kg of the 5 I needed to lose for this round while on these meds. I had a week where I was feeling very down about it all but being able to lose anything at all is a victory right now.

  • I’m feeling rather despondent that some medication I’m having to take has a side effect of water retention - I’ve literally put on 2kg overnight. I’m not likely to stop that medication before this round is over, which looks like it’s going to be impossible to reach my goal.

    I’m doing the best I can to make health a habit; I can’t currently control the need to be on this particular medication for now but I can control what I’m eating. Even times like now when I’m eating out, I’m making a healthier choice than I may have otherwise - today’s lunch is a toasted vegetable wrap.

I’m sorry you are dealing with that but you have a great attitude - good for you not using the situation as an excuse


I'm sorry that you are going through this as well. Like Stephanie said you have a great attitude about it! What I would do, just to maybe help balance out the medicine, is to really try and stay away from breads or major carbs at the moment. I would suggest getting carbs from your vegetables to see if that helps counter balance the medicine. But, continue to have the great attitude that you have! That will take you places!

  • Tonight’s dinner. Dinner is usually the meal where I am likely to fall into bad habits, so it’s the one I’m focusing on doing well.

It was delicious :blush: And a satisfying amount. I had something similar last night, with a little variation to the salad and potato prepared a different way with some cheese.


Good for you! I have a hard time with the evening hours too.

  • I’ve been sick since this DietBet started, which has slowed progress. However, I have been making progress, and have been so much better with my eating. In particular, I’m experimenting more with green smoothies (today’s has some fresh basil and parsley from my garden, along with some tomato, cucumber, chia seeds and wheatgrass powder - so good!)

Good job!! I’ve also been sick since starting and have not been making the best eating choices or exercising yet. Thank you for the inspiration!! Looks good and I’m sure is helping with healing and feeling better too!

Simone C.

Thank you! I find it hard to make good eating choices while sick, particularly when energy levels are low. Exercising is off the cards still but I have been feeling better for getting more veggies in than I usually do.

I’ve signed up for a transformer as well to give this a really good shot. I’ve been sick for 3 weeks which really limits exercise for now but I’m going to do my best with my food and water intake.

Food and water intake is more important than exercise for weight loss so you will be okay. Feel better and kick some butt!

It’s my second DietBet, the first one was unsuccessful. Hope this time I can find motivation and the necessary self discipline 😃

Same here. I did lose weight but not enough.

Just finished my first diet bet, and while I didn’t win (as I ended up being sick for 2 weeks!) I did lose 3kg, which has been the first time in a year that I have lost weight. I’m still getting over my bug but more determined than ever to see this weight loss journey through.
