I am new to dietbet and also feel if it is the money that motivates me then I am all for that.

I'm also in those 2 games and I just hit 100% for Jillian's this morning. The weight is coming off very fast for me with calorie counting and plenty of walking and cycling. It's getting a bit cold for cycling, but I can still walk. I'm also in the Transformer that starts tomorrow and I will join the next transformer to do 3 at a time if it doesn't overlap Jillian's too much. As long as the weight comes off easy, I'm making easy money. have a long way to go before I'm close to my goal weight (180lbs GW, currently 240lbs) so I'm going to ride the dietbet train as far as it will take me, and I'm going to need the money to buy new clothes. I'm shocked at how much I already save by avoiding the snacks I loved so much. I'm addicted to dieting now which is really weird for me to say, lol.

I can relate so much. Temptation at work has been ridiculous. Every day someone brings in fresh bagels. Then the patients bring in cookie assortment, patients make homemade apple bars, the doctor puts a huge bag of pretzels he brought from home and the worst is this one patient brings a delicious chocolate cake every time she comes in which has been about every other week lately. It is so hard, I really have a hard time! I stay out of the back room but I still know it's there lol.

Cristal, have you thought about bringing your family along for the ride? My family has one cheat day, otherwise dessert is fruit, no junk/processed food, ect. Thank God my husband is on bored, I'm really lucky that he's building muscle right now.

Great Job Cristal! I am doing a weight check on the 14th but I have been using a kettlebell workout program and I'm going to start using the treadmill (which makes me angry to think about) Great work though! =)

congrats Crystal, honesty is always the best, I write down every bite also, right now I'm figuring out all my nutrition #'s for a spaghetti squash with leftover veggies and diced up multi colored cherry tomatoes dish I've got sautéing, that's my most difficult thing, but I usually get it close....keep up the good work, you'll meet your goal way ahead of final weigh in...that's m goal, to get my 4% early since I'll be in Hi for a wk....have a good evening....
