February 20

Who needs some extra inspiration today?

I saw this story in my newsfeed on Facebook from the Today Show.

Link >> Small changes that helped this man lose 200 pounds

Not only is this story inspiring, but it shows that small changes can add up when you're consistent and you keep pushing.  He first strated with just walking around his couch.  Then he started walking around his house.  Just that change alone added up to 15 pounds in the first month.  That enabled him to start moving more.

Then he started tweaking his diet by swapping regular soda for diet soda, whole milk to 2% milk.  As he continued to make progress, he continued to make changes.

He shares these tips for others hoping to lose weight and improve their health.

1.  Record it.

2.  Slow progress is still progress.

3.  Look for support.

To date, he's lost 200 lbs and hopes to lose another 100 this year.  

Just remember:

Small changes add up.

Take lots of pictures to track your progress for when the scale isn't showing your hard work.

Track your food and your workouts.  If you use an app like MyFitnessPal, you can link your Garmin, Fitbit, etc. to it so you can track your workouts.

Just keep going!

**February 19 Challenge Check In**



If you successfully logged 750 steps more than your normal daily step goal or the past seven day average, then comment on this post.



From those who comment, I will randomly select a winner. Only this person will be required to submit verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. Verification is as simple as a screenshot from your device's app or website. You can use any type of electronic device to track your steps - Garmin, Polar, Fitbit, Apple Watch, Health Apps on iPhone and Samsung, etc.

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.



I will notify this person via the email associated with his/her Dietbet account. This person will then have 24 hours to reply with verification of his/her steps. If no word is received by the deadline, a new winner will be chosen.



You have until 9:30 am EST on February 21 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.
