I don't know if it has anything to do with losing weight, but I found out my iron levels are low, for a few years now. The Dr prescribed a iron boost for a few weeks. This is week one and my weight is finally going down again.

If it is only a placebo, that works in my head, I'm also okay with it 😆.

Low iron levels are a big contributor to low energy levels so it's very likely helping you be more active and that's going to help with weight (The doc has to prescribe it for me every couple of years, too). Congrats on progress!

Out of nowhere I’m wholly losing motivation. BARELY made last month and I just know March is gonna be more difficult, especially since I have a girls trip planned for mid-month. I’ve just got to keep up with consistency.

Plan ahead for the meals for your trip like crazy, and then stick to the plan! You won't have any less fun, and you'll be proud of yourself at the end of the month when you are successful again!

You can do this! We have 3 more days in March to meet our goals than we did in February! Keep in mind that most of the weight you might gain on a splurge weekend is just water that will be gone in a few days if you get back to healthy habits when you come back from your trip. If you lower your daily calories by 100 - 200 (depending on what your daily calories are now, you don't want to go too low) until you leave that will make up for a good portion of the extra calories you'll consume on your trip. Planning ahead by bringing healthy snacks like protein bars and fruit can help you resist some unhealthy options. You can take some walks during the weekend to help burn some extra calories while exploring your destination. And looking up the menus of restaurants you will be going to and deciding ahead of time what your going to order that fits into your diet will help you keep on track. Don't give up, you've got this!

Way to go!!! I love your posts- this is the quietest group I have been in! :heart:


Let’s ALL post more!!
I do HealthyWage as well & ppl post like crazy! It’s super motivating! I’ve learned so much from everyone. Then I come over to DietBet & hear crickets. I’m not sure why??Martha is the only one that I’m getting to know & be motivated by! As I’ve told her before, I look forward to her workout pics, but wish we all were more supportive of each other! So good for you for being consistent Martha, even through all your work life changes!

Can I submit my initial weigh in tomorrow when I have a weigh in for another DietBet? Or does it need to be before the actual start of this DietBet? The app is saying there are 5hrs left to submit my weigh in. Any help would be great, thank you

Yes, you can submit your weigh in after it starts.


You can submit today and then reuse it tomorrow for the other one if you want to

Round 1 shows I won 18.43. Does that means I won extra 18.43 or lost some from my 35 that was charged for per month ? So confused.

Essentially you're at a deficit... People who have played before say that they won more and more each round and made a huge profit in the final round.


Round 1 cost you 17.50 and you got 18.43 back. The other 17.50 goes into the pot for round 6. It's normal to win small amounts in the first round. Some people will drop out in the first few rounds but since they also already paid the 17.50 for the last round that's all money that we can win. That's why the last round is the best for payback. Just keep holding on :)

Got my second dose of the vaccine today. Half of my coworkers felt ill after it/half had no reaction. I'm going to try to get in one more good workout today in case I'm out of commission this weekend.😊

I was lucky to have no reaction. I hope you are the same!

12 hours to resubmit is correct.


Be careful and take your photos properly. Give them time to respond to you. It'll be okay.

I know we won't receive any of the money we potentially win from each round until the end of the challenge, but will we at least be notified what our share of the winnings is at the end of each individual round?

Just got home from a 4 day house finding trip 700 miles away! Ate out 3x a day and gained 5 lbs in water weight

Eat clean and drink lots of water. You will lose it quickly


That's always super frustrating! But at least if you drink your water and eat lower sodium for a few days it will go away
