  • It feels harder and harder each month, but I just squeaked in to make my goal. Whew.

    Summer BBQs, ice cream cones, and family parties - these things are my kryptonite. I have to double down on my discipline to maintain through end of month - both to make my DietBet final weigh-in and stay on track for my personal fitness goals… But darn it, my health and well-being is worth it!

    Okay, July. I’m ready for you. I CAN do this. Who’s with me?!?!

Sounds like you need another pandemic to keep you away from the summer barbecues and family parties

Mary R

No need for another pandemic! But my entire extended set of families on both sides are fully vaccinated, great cooks, and planning much-delayed family get-togethers to make up for lost time. I just need to be sure to stay more focused on the company than the food now that we’re able to get back together again! :wink:

  • Whew. Made it! Now to maintain…

    Congrats to everyone who made their goal AND to everyone who moved closer toward your ideal weight even if you didn’t make your goal for this round. Every step is progress. All lasting change takes time. We’ve got this. 💗💪💗

  • Whew! I just made it today!!! It’s getting tougher and tougher as I get closer to my ideal weight, but I’m committed and working hard to make my goals reality.

    Whether you made it this round or not, keep going... We are worth it. And we CAN do it! Let’s GO!!!

It's really true, those final pounds are absolutely the toughest to lose. I'm really not sure how I'm gonna make that final weigh in, but I'll find a way! We can do hard things!!!!

I'm really confused. So in this bet do we pay $35 each month? It charged me $35 more for round 2. I didn't even get my $35 back for round 1 even though I won, so why would I pay another $35 for round 2? I'm so confused. I usually do monthly ones not 6 months ones. Can someone explain?

@ceaton - only 1/2 of your $35 goes to reach round, but I thought they paid out reach round. I did one years ago, and I don't remember them holding it all to the end.

Rachel Z, I've done a few since they first started doing them, the payout has always been at the end of Round 6.

I have decided to cut out all fast food and limiting candy and desserts to one piece of chocolate a day and desserts no more than 2 a week. I have a quite a strong sweet tooth so this might be hard but it needs to happen to reach my goals and improve my health. " by Leonarayn

Good luck reaching your goal of 6% in Round 2!

Payouts: Winnings from each round will be accumulated and held until the end of the game. Once the game is over you can cash out. Players betting monthly have the option of dropping out mid-game and claiming their winnings at that time.

Congratulations Everyone, We did it!

  • Hi Friends! I just wanted to quickly remind everyone of the DietBet fee's before the winnings are finalized. Our first bet is split in 2 1/2 for this rounds winnings and 1/2 for round 6. On top of that each round DietBet has to take out their fee for organizing us, hosting these competitions, and organizing referee's for judging. This fee can be up to 25%. They were upfront about this information before we agreed to sign up and challenge ourselves for a better tomorrow 😀

It was NOT clear. This is a surprise to many of us and should be made clearer for future multi-month games.

kaTe S.

Everyone had $17.50 in the pot for the first round. Always read the rules when money is involved. Details on how the bet works (and allocation of 50% of each monthly bet to the final round) are clearly stated in the first section of the Transformer Rules.

  • Whew - I made it! It was really tough for me this month, so I’m nervous for the next couple... My body really wants to hold onto weight right now it seems. But I’m going to keep at it. I feel stronger and more toned, and my clothes are fitting better. The scale isn’t always kind, but I’m better for it! And it’s going to be more than a wish to reach my final goal weight - I’m planning (and working hard!) to make it a reality.

    Let’s keep it up!!! Plan it out, stick to the plan, and push onward! 💗💪💗

Don't forget the first couple months you have more weight to lose, as you get closer to goal, its less weight each month (although a bit harder to lose bc you have less weight overall, I still say first month can be hard) you can catch up and still rock the last few months AND the final pot!!!!

Mary R

Thanks, Courtney! :heartpulse:

  • I’m getting nervous about my ability to kick my 2 last stubborn pounds by the first official weigh in date. And I signed up and committed money for the entire set of rounds, so now I’m getting really nervous!

    If we miss our goal for this first round, are we still in? If I am still stuck at 2lbs over my goal for the first check in, do those 2lbs get added to the amount I need to lose in the next round or do all my goal weights get adjusted going forward to maintain the same % loss round to round?

    I have so many questions - that I’m hoping become irrelevant when I hit my goal!!! (I just like to know fully what’s on the line!)

Thank you so much for all the great clarifications! I now will just get back to focusing on doing the best I can to make my goal weight - for this round AND the future ones!

Thanks for all the support!!!


For me fasting is good to get rid of. After one day of fasting I loose 1-2lbs... and drink a lot...
