I love the workouts so far! They are perfect for getting back into working out after some time off. I am definitely feeling some tightness though. I foam rolled and did some basic stretches today but was wondering if there’s also a recommended stretch routine to go along with these workouts?

Me too! I was just thinking it's nice to have a variety of exercises so I don't get bored. I like the combinations, too. I'm hoping that adding daily exercise will help me win this kickstarter! Thanks for the extra motivation, Jamie!

I love them too! I haven’t worked out on a while and usually hurt myself because i do too much early on. This is great to ease in

So I've lost the first three rounds of this game, plus two recent Kickstarters. I'm feeling annoyed with myself but I'm still *almost* on track with my weight loss. I'm ready to turn things around and start WINNING in 2021. Nine days and 1.4 lbs to go--I can do this!! So can you!!

I'm around the same distance from the goal. It's achievable if we don't relax fully until we're there, we can do it.


12/29/2020 12:02PM in The Countdown Kickstarter - $500 Pot Bonus! weigh in this mornin was denied due to a carpet close to the scale. I have NEVER had this problem before despite being in over a dozen diet bets. Who can I talk to as the scale was NOT on the carpet?

  • Hi everyone!!! Checking in- how are you??? Where are you positioned to finish this diet bet? Guaranteed win? It’s a close call? not looking like a possibility but you never know? Not gonna happen but so happy I tried?

    Wherever you are, you should so proud. I always believe that those who set goals always come out ahead than those who don’t, regardless or not if you “win” them. So many people waste so much time wanting without action and you took action. I’m so proud of you! That takes courage, especially this year, and that’s a HUGE WIN in and of itself!

    If you saw the value and importance of this bet on yourself and want to keep it in place to help you kickoff 2021 right, please join me in my next DietBet starting January 1!!! No reason to start taking steps backwards now. Accountability creates consistency and consistency creates real results!!! You got this!!! Stay committed to yourself and your goals. I’m really looking forward to our next group and opportunity to win big!

  • I finally won my first DietBet! I lost 2 of them last year, and figured it was just my metabolism working against me (I’m a 50something, menopausal mess, lol). This was a very inspiring group, and it helped me stick to my goals . Thanks to Ilana, and the support of this group, I’ve hit a new low — and I couldn’t be happier about it ????. Wishing a safe and healthy new year to all !


I did great in the beginning then for the first time in a long time, I got away from eating right. I was surprised how easy it is to slip back to old habits. I do so much better when I follow the recipes than choosing my own food options. Maybe next time.

  • Congratulations everyone!! I am so proud of myself! I started this year at 347 pounds and I am now 216! I have lost a total of 131 pounds! I never thought that I would be able to do that in less than a year but I made a decision to eat healthy and get my life back in check. I never set foot in a gym. That is insane to me!! It’s crazy how changing your mindset can change your life. I’ve still got a long way to go on my journey but I’m so proud of where I am.
