  • Like Tye posted, I too will be 60 in a few months and decided to get healthy last September. Since then I have lost over 130#, and over 150# since this 2019 picture. I lost a lot before I ever heard of diet bet, but this really helped me extend my weight loss below what I ever imagined possible. I used to think 350# was a good goal, and now I am on the cusp of the 250s. I have a lot of dining out happening in the next month so I will try to hold steady for a few weeks before a push to get to 250#.  This past weekend while cleaning out my parent's house I found an RPI sweatshirt that my sister bought for me when she was a freshman at RPI in 1985. I don't think I ever fit into it or wore it in the mid-'80s when I got the shirt. I now have a new nice-fitting new throwback RPI sweatshirt that may lead people to believe I have a kid going there. Also in this clean out, I found a mid 90s picture album that had pictures of me at over 500# and was a shock to see.
    I bought a Peloton last Sept when I started and recently completed a 52-week streak for activity, it was just what I needed to get fit. In April, I got an outdoor bike and this past Saturday I did the 75-mile Bike MS: City to Shore ride. Last September I would have never imagined I could do such a thing in my life, proving big change is possible. 
    Meeting this Transformer goal was nowhere near an issue, as a matter of fact when I recently had COVID (vaccinated breakthrough) and suddenly dropped 15# I was more worried about losing too much weight. I can not imagine how much worse my bout with COVID would have been if I were 100# heavier.

This morning I saw a number on the scale I didn’t think was possible six months ago, especially at my age (almost 60). I truly believe that health and fitness is an incremental game of little gains and periodic losses. When I don’t see immediate results it’s frustrating and I fell like giving up.

The DietBet has helped me with this. I REALLY don’t want to lose $175 so every time I feel like eating something I see $175 and typically win the battle.

But what about after the final weigh in? What is the motivation? For me, it’s six grandkids and my wife of 36 years. I want to be healthy for them.

What will be your motivation after September 29? I encourage you to start deciding today what that will be for you .

Best of luck everyone!

Motivation really is the key for everything we do. It’s at the heart of all that we do. Congratulations everyone!

I too will be 60 in a few months and I have now reached a lower weight than I ever thought possible. I think I will do a picture post, but like Justin, I started riding a bike and did the 75-mile Bike MS: City to Shore ride this past weekend.

I've got to say I'm proud of myself! This is the first time I've been able to make weigh in on the first day! I guess it takes all of 5 months for me to start making good habits. 😁

Hello everyone! I've noticed that the comments have slowed down. Maybe everyone has a life! haha

Seriously, I want to encourage everyone to stay the course with your health and fitness plans. This is a game of little gains because we know that multiple small gains over a longer period of time is more likely to stick because we make lifestyle changes.

In the end, win or lose, if you improved your life and made some lifestyle changes, $175 is money well spent in my opinion. I was fortunate enough to make my weight this time, but I had prepared myself mentally for the potential of not making my weight. Notice I didn't say losing.

Best wishes everyone and I can't wait to see how this turns out for everyone!

They help me as well. I didn’t make round 3, but this game got me refocused and on track to make all the other rounds. I’m feeling the benefits too. I ran today (very short distance) for the first time in years.

Justin S.

Well said! Thanks for your motivation!

So I wasn’t feeling well last week (not COVID. Just a cold &/or allergies sucks 😂)
And it ruined my appetite. Being congested is great for a diet! Let’s hope I can maintain this and not yo-yo 🙌

Yup! One of the few benefits of being sick!
