I’m so ready for this to start. Last month, during the last Diet Bet, my dad fell and broke his hip and collar bone. While he was in the hospital, I stayed with my mom at night (she too is a fall risk) so life was (and still is a bit) upside down.

Now, one of my dear friends who is 84, who has lived a very independent and vibrant life will go into assisted living because scoliosis has now crippled her and she is wheelchair bound.

I’m 54, healthy, just now starting peri-menopause, but so stressed out living with helping the elders in my life, I’m losing it mentally.

I see my future and worry about it. I’m trying to focus on one day at a time, but fuck! It’s getting to me today.

Ok. Vent over. I’ll get some sleep and keep on tomorrow! Water! Veggies! Weigh! Track! I got this!!!

Love and peace. Love yourself.
Please be kind to elder people. They feel helpless.

What all do you put in your salads? Do you chop everything up small or leave them pretty big chunks?

I do mix of lettuces, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, carrots, pepitas or avocado and I make the creamy garlic dressing from fixate. It’s delish! Then add protein. I love this salad.

Dawn S.

I vary. Almost anything goes in my salad. I don't do any soy as I have tummy issues with it. I use simply dressed dressing (made with canola oil) or make a simple olive oil one

Do those of us who didn’t meet our goal get to know how much the winnings will be for those who did? I want to know to give me some extra motivation to stay on track for my next diet bet! Also I was .6lbs away :,(

I have won 16 games before this one, my average (w/o including bet $) is $15, the most I’ve won was $23, and the least was $3(but the $3 one was a $100 bet)

Kaleena G.

It was about $57 this time.

So not sure how to handle this. I am 5 pounds away from my goal weight. So that will be 4% weight loss. If I lose that weight between now and the beginning of the next Bet, do I just pay the money knowing I won’t make it back? And knowing y’all help me so much these months the Bet is on?
How have you handled it?
Thanks for all the support you all give. Hugs

You can wait and see if you lose the weight before the next game starts. You can even join a game up to 2 weeks into it. Also, one you’ve reached your goal, there are maintainer games (for members).

Steph

Congratulations to being to your final five! I’ve joined some Diet Bets because I was really interested in what that host was teaching. If you don’t have the weight to lose, you can join and view it as a learning or community access fee. If you want to do a diet bet for accountability after you’re at your goal weight, there are maintainers where you stay within 3% +/- of your body weight for a longer period of time, like 8 weeks. Good luck!

  • Thank you Ilana and everyone here for your support and guidance. I’m 1 pound below my pre-Covid weight and 5 away from my goal weight!!! I didn’t think I could do it this time due to lots of family stuff happening, but you gave me the support and the motivation I needed. THANK YOU! We got this. Keep going everyone.

  • I’m down 21 pounds since January and 16 of that has been thanks to Ilana’s last two DietBet games. Thank you Ilana and all of you guys for the journey. See you in July! I am joining Elise Joan’s group starting May 31 to stay accountable.

Losing the stomach is the best feeling!

Elise Joan is also a Beach Body personality, part of the new Fire and Flow program, I think. Here's the link to her game: https://waybetter.com/dietbet/games/154522?utm_campaign=existing_ro_group_B

  • It's officially the last full week of the dietbet!!!! If you feel like it's late and you're tired, DON'T let that get in the way of your goals! This week is going to be a grid! Prepare those veggies!!! Fill up those water bottles! Plan out those meals and accessories, and share with your friends and family and this group your intentions. Let us know your plan in the comments below as well, so you're even more accountable.

    You can do this! You can lose a another 1-4 pounds by the weigh out. FINISH STRONG!!!! #mondaymotivation

Plateaued a bit but need to drink more water and add a little cardio

I'm 2 lbs away, so I'm tracking everything on myfitnesspal.com. This morning's breakfast: 2 coddled eggs; 2 slices fresh tomato; 2 oz's (6 pieces) steamed asparagus = 144 calories, 5 carbs, 1 fiber, 12 protein.

This diet bet has been tough. 2 work trips, one being a conference and like a family reunion with friends I haven’t seen in 2 years.
Then I got a call that my dad fell and broke his collarbone and hip. Needing to stay with my mom. Not the best circumstances to stay on track. Trying to keep water first and veggies most. But the stress and not being home with my own food is throwing me off.

Just needed to get this out. Today is a new day. I’ll make it a great week and focus on the end game.

Thanks y’all.

Hope your father is okay!

I hope your father is okay. If you can got to the market pick up what you need to keep you on track while you are with your mom. You got this!
