Can anyone tell me where we can input our current weight or is that not available to do yet?

How many of you were in Ilana’s last challenge? Did you keep losing, maintain or gain? Just curious….. I know some of you continued with a challenge in between the two😀

If not vegan or sensitive to whey, which protein powder is better tasting? Is there a difference in nutritional value between the vegan and whey?

Yes, there is a difference in how complete the protein is, as well as the taste. I tried a vegan protein that was popular with BB before they had a vegan Shakeology, but didn’t care for it. It’s primary source was pea protein. With vegan proteins there are several different options for creating the protein, pea, brown rice, seeds, etc. so some may taste better than others. Tera’s Whey has a clean whey option, there are also flavored ones by BSN Syntha6 that my cousin loves. My girls like Alani products, where my husband and I have Dymatize isolates. Whey isolates are a bit more expensive, but lower carbs and more lactose friendly for those who are sensitive.

Thank you!

Yes we do got this! Yay ladies. Happy early bday Laura! I think what I needed was Ilana’s DietBet zoom call to make me realize I wanted the weight loss more than food. Weight loss is a treat too!

Paige L.

Awesome! Go find a 5lb bag of something at a store and feel how much you've lost. It's really quite a bit of weight!

I am new to this. I weighed in yesterday thinking it ended 5/22. Today I looked and the app wouldn’t let me weigh / submit etc. I’ve emailed the app email. If yesterday won’t count for the end weigh in can I weigh in tomorrow so it’s the am before any food/ water? Hope this makes sense

To clarify - members can use their progress weigh ins for 48 hours after submission. You likely did your progress weigh ins, not the final weigh in for this game as the weigh in period just opened today (and closes tomorrow). You will still have to click “weigh in” and it will give you the option to re-use your progress weigh in (as long as it’s been approved).

Laura R.

Michaela so everyone who won today has to resubmit that weigh in again? I thought today was the final weigh in??

For those of you who have won, how long is it taking to get that notification? I weighed in, but it still doesn’t show I’ve won, only at 100% of goal.

  • Wooohoooo!!! I've lost 57lbs since I started doing this diet bets on May of last year. I seriously can't believe how far you can come when you put your mind and body into it!! I'm so so close to my ultimate weight loss goal of 60lbs. Hopefully I can reach my goal this week!! Let's keep pushing 💪 ??
