Is Challenge 1 an average of 10,000 steps a day for the month or a daily minimum for 30 days?

WayBetterJen

Hi Melissa - 10,000 steps a day at minimum

It’s the final weekend of this DietBet. Time flies!

I hope you enjoyed this challenge. The step challenges are fun, and hope they give you an extra boost of incentive to move throughout the four weeks.

On Monday, there will be two Check In posts. One post will be for the weekend step challenge. And the second post will be for the 28 days of 10,000 steps. So for a short time, the Challenge Winner Board will not be pinned towards the top (I can only have two posts pinned at a time.). Once winners are drawn from the last two challenges, it will be re-pinned.

I have not yet set up a follow on game yet. I am on vacation camping this week with my family. I will set something up for after Thanksgiving though. If you’re interested in another challenge, be on the lookout in your inbox for the email invitation to join.

I hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving (or as nice as can be under the circumstances!). Thank you for participating.

Don't forget the step challenge today! Today's target is 9,250 steps. I've noticed participation in the step challenge dwindling. So let's take today as a way to re-energize so there are 54 comments on tomorrow's Check In post!

Who's in?

What happens if I don’t weigh out?

I’ve been faithful to my plan but stalled out this week and still have 2 lbs to go. I’m not losing 2 lbs by Monday morning.

I’ve never lost a DietBet before. I just looked through the rules and the FAQ, but could not find the answer: Do I forfeit more money by not weighing out than by weighing out but not making my goal?

I’m going out of town and won’t take my scale with me, unless it’s going to cost me extra money not to submit a weigh-out. Thanks!

Thank you, Jen! That clears things up. If I gain over the holidays you may see me back after the first of the year! And I’m still keeping up my 10000 steps to try to win that first challenge!

Good job, Susan!

It's Tuesday. Today's target for our step challenge is your normal daily step goal (or past seven day average) plus an extra 1,000 steps.

Five days to go until we reach the end of this DietBet. What is your best tip for the final stretch of this DietBet?
