I was nervous yesterday AND today, but I finally hit the 10%!

I'm trying to decide how to maintain it now. I was going to join to do dietbet maintainers, but now I'm not sure I want to pay $50 for a membership just to do those. And the Waybetter membership is $80 and you need an approved activity tracker for many of the challenges. Any suggestions on other accountability options?

Thanks you all - I will look into your suggestions :blush:

I hate that they changed the RunBets and merged them with waybetter games that are member only games. Now I won’t join them.

But as far as investments I just bought a jog strap for my phone and used Runkeeper but I always had issues uploading Runkeeper to RunBet. The apps would always freeze. I always ended up contacting customer support. They were good at helping but you had to make your Runkeeper online account public so they could gather the information and I didn’t like that.

  • Been eating clean for the last few days and I'm relieved to have managed to make it with a 2 lbs margin... now the waiting game for verification begins....

    Over the last 6 months I have dropped almost 30 lbs, fit into clothing I havent been able to wear in years, been more confident, and just overall had more energy/felt better. 2020 over all may have sucked but I'm fortunate to have found some silver linings.

    Good luck everyone and I hope you all have a happy and safe New Year!!!

Single digits left! I can’t believe it. When we started this game December felt so far away but the time has flown for me.

Still hanging out in the same place-gained .9 lbs in the 4 weeks since I found out I was pregnant, so I still have a few lbs of wiggle room to make goal. I am tracking to gain right at 2 lbs in the first trimester, which was my goal and I’m pleased with my progress so far. Really fortunate to be almost symptom free or I’m sure I would be eating whatever I could stand! This is the first time I haven’t been sick-sick. I think being in a healthy place coming into this pregnancy probably made a big difference, so glad I did this transformer!

I realize that every woman and every pregnancy is different. But since blood sugar levels have an effect on morning sickness, it seems logical that knowing what your body needs under normal circumstances would make things go smoother while pregnant. Good for you, taking care of yourself! It's proof that caring for yourself helps you take care of others too! :grinning:

Meenakshi L.

Yes !! Single digits left !! That makes me feel awesome too!! I am planning to join a maintainer right after finishing this...so that I don't go off track.....it was such a wonderful journey with all of you in the group.....wish you a very healthy pregnancy and welcome the new one with lots of happiness..:blush:

My fridge broke yesterday. All the food in the freezer is now thawed and I am eating like crazy to save the food from the garbage.
Not good for this bet. 😳
Also the big lockdown started just yesterday. Means no shop open for new fridge. 😩

I admire your concern that you are trying to save food...but please dont overeat just to stop food wastage...rather give it away to someone in need or friend or animals

Simone S.

Luckily I got a new fridge on the classifieds. Online-Order would have taken 5 days for delivery now before Christmas.
I am a member of the Foodsharing-Community. So I found people who took some of my food. But my favourites I just had to eat myself. :see_no_evil:

Only 17 days left. I allowed myself to celebrate making the last weigh in a little too much and have 5lbs to lose to get back to the right weight. Going to be a rough 3 weeks trying to get back on track. Good luck to you all trying to make the weigh in on target.

I am exercising regularly since about past one month....it is helping me in creating a buffer and avoid any sudden weight gain even after consuming a heavy carb meal once a day.....m really focussing on building a permanent routine that I can follow for rest of my life to keep away from regaining my lost weight...taking ample rest and focussing on positivity of thoughts for overall well being.....all the best to all of you

Starlight

That's a good idea Meenakshi, too often in a diet we just think about the food we want to eat after the diet is over. But we need to think of a new way of living that we can continue. I'm closer to that now, but I will still keep logging my food for a year as I create these new habits.

Me too. I think more people won this round because we had the added motivation to at least qualify for round 6. I thought I was just going to qualify but went hard & made it. Maybe others did the same? Anyways, it’s great! How do you tell how many won each round?

Oops, I see it now

I know its not ideal but food poisoning friday/Saturday seems to have helped me get rid of the last little bit I needed to make weight... glad to be feeling better today tho I think I'd rather not have been sick and been over weight. I felt so miserable.

Good to see you are back on the mend, not a pleasant way to lose weight for sure

Meenakshi L.

Glad that you are feeling better

Can someone help me, I had to change bank account information so the charge for the game was declined. How can I can have them reprocess the payment? Should I just send an email or is there a way to do it in app?

I assume you've now updated the new details? I would email support@dietbet.com to see if they can reprocess.

Meenakshi L.

Even I faced this situation in my second round. I was actually thrown out of the game due to payment issues in my card ..I emailed them at the above email and they guided me...they just made me wait for about a week before actually starting to give me reply....but I was added back to the game eventually
