I won this first round of the Transformer, but it certainly wasn't because I was trying exceedingly hard. I won in the worst way possible. My husband of 26 years passed away suddenly last week from a heart attack. I haven't been able to eat.

I have tried to lose weight using Dietbet several times in the past, but I have never succeeded. Last month I decided that I truly was going to lose weight in order to feel and look better for both myself and my husband. I am going to continue on this journey, but I'm going to have a hole in my heart the whole time. I miss him with all my being.

You know how everyone always thinks it will never happen to them? That was me. We were building our dream home for our future retirement and life was exciting and we had things to look forward to. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this would happen. Be sure to tell your loved ones that you appreciate them and that you love them. You just never know what the next day will hold.

I am so sorry. I canโ€™t imagine - and I can tell he was truly your soul mate. Keep moving forward in whatever way you can, not just in DietBet but in life. :heart:

Eek. A bit worried about this one. I came in off of a win (my first win) and got a little cocky lol fell off the wagon and the scale is going in the opposite direction. Anyone else struggling to stay motivated?

My motivation ebbs and flows as well. Iโ€™m highly motivated at the moment and hope to ride this wave to a victory at the end of this game. I can relate to falling off the wagon! I do it often too! Good luck the rest of the game!

  • This was me 6yrs ago. I really believed and thought I was "fat". But little did I know that life was going to get really hard and I would put on 100lbs in 6 years.
    In 2015, I opened my heart to love after 5yrs of being single and the man I gave my heart to crushed it. That started my bad eating habits which included drinking at least 33oz of soda a day. By 2018, I had gained over 30lbs. In 2018, I experienced true heartbreak, I lost my 1st grandbaby three days after she was born. That really sent me into a whirlwind of wild emotions and every night I had multiple anxiety attacks. In a year, I gained over 40 lbs. Food was my only comfort even if it was temporary. Then in 2019, I lost my dad and that's when I completely stopped caring about my body. Two years later, I was 100 lbs overweight. In May, I had a doctor's appt and I really thought the scale was broken. But that number on the scale made me realized that if I didn't do anything to stop the weight gain, I wasn't going to live to see 50. My kids and my two new grandkids were going to live a life without me. This is why I joined Dietbet cause I need all the support I can get. I'm already down 25 lbs since May 2021. I'm taking it nice and slow, 10 lbs at a time. I'll be successful and get healthy for myself and for my family.

Is anyone else self conscious of their weigh-in photos? The only full size mirror in our house is in my teenage daughter's room. I always feel like they must look at my pictures and wonder how the heck I live like such a slob. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Her room is atrocious.

I think the same thing every time I take one. The only full length mirror we have is in our bathroom!

I'm a slob myself, so...

So... I slacked really bad and didn't make goal. ๐Ÿ˜” Do I just have to push harder to meet round 2's goal? Or does it end here?

I was worried about that too. Do we still have to submit our weigh in though?


Yes, you're still supposed to weigh in

@sunny haha I Wish it was muscle gain but itโ€™s not

Definitely upping my water & fiber too Leann

Hoping itโ€™s just a day bump from the weekend:grimacing:


Try getting a good nights sleep. Sleep has a big impact on the scale.

On vacation with family for two's going to be hard not to resist with all the barbecues, pique niques and long family dinners. But vacation also means a lot of time to enjoy hikes and swimming ! Good day all!

Ouch, vacation is def a tough time to make responsible food choices... Good luck!! You can do it, or at least be reasonable and kick up your activity to compensate. All will be well.

Alaina C.

Planning an active activity every day always helps me. I do usually have extra water weight after from the drinking though lol. Good luck! You got this!
