What should I do if I didn't get an email? It's not in spam either.

Got it, thank you!

If you reached your 4% goal, don't forget that today (October 27) is the last day you can submit your final weigh-in photos. You have until 11:59 pm PST tonight to submit.

If you reached your 4% goal, congratulations!

But if you fell short of your 4% goal, I know it's disappointing. I hope that you have seen successes in other areas to help fuel your future success.

I just sent an email to the randomly selected final step challenge winner. Once this person's steps are verified, the Amazon gift cards will be sent out. I will update this post once they've been sent so you can be on the lookout in your Inbox and Junk/Spam folders.

**September 28 - October 25 Challenge Check In**

If you logged a minimum of 10,000 steps between September 28 - October 25 (every day of this DietBet), please comment on this post.

From those who comment, I will select a winner at random. I will email this person (using the email address associated with his/her DietBet account). ONLY this person will need to provide verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. (*Please do not post pictures when you comment.)

This person will have 24 hours to reply with verification. If I don't hear back by then, the prize is forfeited. And a new winner will be chosen. The winner will be a choice between either DietBet credits (Credits may be used towards the bet payment of either a DietBet, or StepBet, and are awarded immediately.), or an Amazon gift card (Gift cards are sent once all step challenge winners are identified after the DietBet ends.).

If you comment on this post, please be sure to check your email after the check in period ends!

You have until 9:30 am EST on October 27 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.

October 25 - Day 28

We made it to the end of this DietBet!

Beginning tomorrow morning, our final weigh-ins will begin. You will then have until 11:59 pm PST on Thursday, October 27, to submit your final weight for this DietBet. If you reached your 4% goal, you will need to submit your two final photos, too, just as you did at the beginning of this DietBet. If you fell short of reaching your 4% goal, you are not required to submit photos.

There will be one final challenge check in tomorrow for Challenge #1 - Minimum of 10,000 steps every day of this DietBet. Once this final winner is verified, I will send out the Amazon gift cards to those who requested it as their prize. So be on the lookout! I will post in the group, too, once they have been sent out.

How did you do with the one thing you committed to doing for the entirety of this challenge? Did you stick with it? What was the most challenging part for you?

Personally, I committed to continue honestly tracking my food. It is the one thing that I see success with when I am consistent. I have legitimately tracked every bite since September 19. And the scale is finally starting to move in the right direction. I hit my 4% goal this morning so I am hoping I can hold on until tomorrow.

Please share your success below!

Katie, thanks so much for commenting on my posts!

I did better getting more steps in, but it's still a challenge for me. I got out of the habit 18 months ago, and it's tough to get it back. At least I'm unstoppable! Real progress has been made & I'm ready to jump right in on the next DB!

October 21

It's the final weekend before final weigh-ins begin next week. This challenge has flown by for me!

Let's make a plan for this weekend so when final weigh ins begin next Wednesday, we're ready to go.

1. Eating out?
No worries! Check the menu of the restaurant online (if possible) and plan what you're going to have. Go ahead and log it into your food tracker then plan the day around that meal.

2. On the go?
Bring snacks! Pack some cut up veggies/fruit, a protein bar, or other healthy snacks etc. If you have snacks with you, you're less likely to grab something while you're on the run.

3. Start with a healthy breakfast.
I find that if I start my day off with a nutritious and healthy breakfast that I am more likely to make good choices throughout the day.

4. WATER. WATER. WATER.
Aim to drink at least half of your body weight (in ounces) in water each day. (Example: 150 lbs = 75 ounces) Fill up your refillable bottle and sip while you're out running errands, attending kids' sports, etc.

5. Stay active!
Don't forget the step challenge going on this weekend, too. The target is to get in at least a combined total of 20,500 steps (That's the sum of your steps from Saturday and Sunday must be at least 20,500 steps.)

Who is taking the weekend pledge with me?

You will also need to provide verification of your daily goal, or your seven day average - whichever you used to calculate your step total for the challenge.

This person will have 24 hours to reply with verification. If I don't hear back by then, the prize is forfeited. And a new winner will be chosen. The winner will be a choice between either DietBet credits (Credits may be used towards the bet payment of either a DietBet, WayBet or StepBet and are awarded immediately.), or an Amazon gift card (Gift cards are sent once all step challenge winners are identified after the DietBet ends.).

It's the last Wednesday step challenge of this DietBet. Today's target is your normal daily step goal (or past seven day average) plus an extra 1,000 steps. Do that then remember to come back tomorrow to comment on the Challenge Check In post.

Are you in?
