I'm about a pound and a half away from having lost 100 pounds (over time, not during this game) but I'm so proud and excited! Planning a new tattoo to commemorate!

I could use some help/advice.... I'm really struggling. I'm making very poor choices in my eating. I use myfitnesspal, and I pretty consistently go over lately. I'm still keeping up with exercise, but the calories are killing me. Every weigh in is a struggle. I goof off until five or six days before weigh in, then I have to be very restrictive. Which leads to me goofing off worse after weigh in. I'm in a couple of long term games, which means I have to weigh in about every two weeks. But still, this pattern of bad week/good week is stressing me out.

So I'm looking for suggestions to get yourself back on track. Holidays are coming, and I'm terrified.....

Take it one day at a time. Whenever I get off track I take each day as it comes-set some rules for myself (they’re personal to me, I don’t follow anyone else’s plan) and remind myself that today is the first day I’m eating healthy (again.) For me, getting through the first few days is hardest then it becomes a “normal” cycle of eating healthy again.

I’m there right now. I haven’t lost anything this month, I don’t need to for the game but I need to for myself. My husband left for a detachment (he’s in the military) so he’s gone for a few weeks and I haven’t been cooking, which has led to poor choices. I set some ground rules for myself and I’m committed to them through Thanksgiving Day, and this is what has worked for me. Finally back on track...hope this helps, good luck!

Start with little steps. Like committing to 3 stop eating at 7 pm, or skipping sugar for the day. For me, my goal this week is to limit eating between 11am and 7pm. It's helping.

I’ve been struggling...I’m fine for the game weight, but I had my weekend of indulgences...then hubby convinced me to make the second meal I’d planned to make over the weekend on Monday. That lasted through today, except he wanted to do our monthly takeout last night because he’s going on a work trip for 2 weeks on Friday. So...the weekend turned into 5 days of indulgence. Tomorrow I am FOR SURE back to it, I don’t really think I’ve gained more than maybe a pound but I don’t feel good and I’m retaining water. Need to move in the right direction!

Finished a kickstarter last week and having a hard time getting back on track after my splurge days. Gonna make my weigh in this month, but it’s not my final goal so I need to stay focused!

Is Canadian Thanksgiving like in the U.S. where we usually eat till we're stuffed and then collapse on the couch?

Willians B.

Normally yes. This year nobody is inviting, so no big lunchs or dinners

  • Not a dramatic before / after, because I had already been losing weight since December. But this was the pair of pants I wanted very badly. This is from when I bought them at the end of April (too tight to wear yet) to this week. I wear them every day now and have been watching for another pair in the next size down for the future. Don't give up on things that matter to you!

My dress pants are too big. One part of me: omgomgomg! Another part of me: ugh with all this wfh I didn't even get to wear them ... The practical side of weight loss :)

Lol, I bought a jacket to look more professional when we went back to in-person work, but we haven't yet and it's too big!

Can you get them taken in?? Way to go!

I'm a little ambivalent on the weight I reached today. Today I hit the weight I was the first time I freaked out in high school about being fat. While I'm thrilled that I've lost a total of 50 pounds since finding DietBet, the actual number is weirdly tangled in my brain, and it's bringing up a lot about how unhealthy my relationship with food and weight used to be. Which is weird, because I think of myself as somebody who doesn't care about body image. I think processing this is going to be more of a challenge that I expected. But 50 pounds is 50 pounds, right?

You should be proud that you lost the weight, and more importantly, that you’ve taken control of your actions and are on the opposite lifestyle of high school. You should celebrate your tenacity and discipline!

Starlight

Celebrate your achievement! Think too about how different life is as an adult. When you were in high school you probably didn't have nearly as much control over your life as you do now. You have power, options, and skills you didn't have as a teen.

  • The picture on the right was from before I found diet bet. My face is what shows the weight loss best! The transformer challenge has Wally taught me to eat healthy and to be consistent with exercise! I am never going back! Anyone have any good advice to tighten skin back?

I use a loofah liberally and use Amlactin lotion that is supposed to rejuvenate the skin / increase cell turnover. Right now it's not keeping up with my weight loss, but then I'm almost 55. I think exercise and healthy eating help our skin too, so keep that going!

Aimee G.

You look great!! I have loose skin on my neck I would love to know how to tighten too.

DietBet isn't showing me my Points. Is anyone else having the problem? I'm freaking a little bit because I had been saving my payouts from the year.

Also check if points have been used for Stepbet, Runbet, or Waybetter games.

Amanda B

I actually did that this morning, and I logged in on different devices too. I just got home from work and thankfully my points are back!
