I lost 27 lbs 2 years ago with dietbet. I gained back 5 lbs, but was happy with my weight and managed to maintain until we went to Denmark from December until May. With the dietary changes, I gained another 17 lbs - time to get it off

Dear dietbet friend- You have been selected because you have inspired/ encouraged/ liked a post/ or in some way helped me and I thank you for that! Now I hope we can help each other-- I am starting a dietbet called Forget the Fudge ( ), and people are needed!! My friends outside dietbet are, for a multitude of reasons/excuses, not joining, so I am appealing to you, my DB ppl who have helped me get down about 60#. I still have about 15# to go. Can you help and finish off 2014 better than you started?

Your chart is WOW- you started about where I am now! It's too bad I couldn't give you my distaste for beer (LOL). It's barely OK to me! Wine is what I like, but I don't go crazy for it- not like peanut butter, chocolate, and some other yummies!

Thanks - you can have my distaste for desserts - I'm gluten-intolerant and have never eaten pies, cakes and most candies because they make me sick. But unfortunately, beer is low enough in gluten that I just retain water and feel sluggish - only drink ales and stouts, though.

Wine's not so bad either, but we can't get that at the brew-pub.

oh awesome, looks like we have almost identical starting weights and personal goals!! Since you have the Garmin I'm guessing you're a runner? I finished C25K last Friday only to end up with a sore left shin suddenly so now I'm afraid to push myself for longer than 10-15 mins. Keep up the amazing work, we got this!!
