Does anyone else hit their weigh in and then have a slight rebound in the week after? It’s driving me mad!

Get into multiple dietbets that are staggered all at different times, then you can't. I just got into my 3rd transformers, in 3 kickstarters, and finished 3 other kickstarters already.


Yep!! Right there with ya! Frustrating for sure!

I can’t believe it. I was under my September goal for about two weeks. I changed my tactics and now I am over by a pound. I am not sure if I will make it this round now :( I know it is a marathon, not a sprint but I am so disappointed because I hit that target already.

You’ve got this!!


Don't get discouraged, keep at it and the scale might just give you a happy surprise tomorrow! In any case, stick with it and you'll catch-up before next round!!

Has anyone here tried Noom? The basic calorie counting isn’t really working for me and leaves me hungry and I thought I would give something else a try. I signed up for the two week trial of Noom yesterday and still undecided about it. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I have done Noom and also follow 2B mindset. I really liked Noom's food tracker and the food colors they follow, which is based on caloried density. It really helped me in assessing my food choices. For example, 2B follows a plate-it method, which I love, but the food categories are generic: protein, carbs (fiber-filled), and veggies. Noom takes it one step further. Chicken and shrimp are lower calorie dense proteins versus steak and cheese. I think we know this already, but seeing it tracked and how it effects your daily totals really helped me. I only did one session of Noom and just carry forward what I learned while still following 2B. I will probably follow 2B for life!!!

I’m doing 2B mindset and I’ve lost 35 pounds since June 3rd

Ugh! I don't want to be a downer but I want to quit. I won round 1 but I just want to give up. My eating has been soooo out of control this round-its shameful. I know I can't quit on myself but I'm just not feeling this anymore.

After a great start, I was starting to think I had plateaued. Just weighed in though and I have made some good progress. I’ve passed my September goal! This is usually the point where I self-sabotage. I just need to keep doing what I’ve been doing instead and break the cycle.

Dumb question but how much was the cost of each round? I forgot.

$35 if you pay monthly, $29 if you paid all at once, and got one round free. Half of all the money goes to the last round, the rest is for each round

Congrats to all that made their round 1 goal!
Anybody else have this annoyance:
You move the electronic scale to do a weigh in and after recalibrating, the scale goes up? For me it went up 0.4 lbs from what it said before I moved it.
Makes me not like the scale ☹

I have had that problem. I switched to the Fitbit scale and it seems to be a bit better - but the main reason I only weigh in the same spot and use a selfie stand for taking pics since I don’t have a long mirror on hardwoods

Only weigh yourself in the spot where you take the pictures. I have a free standing mirror that I move. Previously I would prop my phone up and then use the timer setting to take the pictures so they were in the spot where I typically weighed in.

Does anyone else find that they get more anxious when losing weight? I feel like every time I get to a certain stage, usually the start of the diet or picking it up again after a few days off. Does burning fat increase adrenaline or something? Does anyone know?

Yes, Dieting can cause your body to release the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. You can read more about it by doing an internet search. Exercise helps burn off those stress hormones... as well as stored fat! A double plus!!

Shaz M.

Thanks Beth. Yes I did a search before posting but all I could find were results about the psychological effect and this is something that feels out of my control. So yes, it does feel like adrenaline is being released. Yay for burning fat!

Anyone having issues getting weight submitted? I can’t seem to get the box checked or photo attached today. I have restarted my app and phone. 😏

I’ve had a little reminder as to why I am doing this. I ended up in hospital overnight with a racing heartbeat. It has slowed now and they think it is due to an overload of caffeine (been burning candle at both ends) but I was so frightened it was a heart attack and I bet if I was a healthier weight I wouldn’t have had those thoughts. That’s why I need to stay focused with this DietBet.
