Hello! I hope everyone is doing well. I have hit my November goal, now I just need to maintain it. We will be moving states at the end of the month and the desire to stress eat is no joke, but so far I’m hanging in there!

Congrats! You got this!

Starlight

Focus on plans for maintaining and what coping strategies you'll use instead of food for stress, holidays, birthdays, etc. Congrats!

I am more hungry than usual today. Thought you all should know that.

I know the feeling yesterday I was wanting a 3 musketeers but I talked myself out of it :sweat_smile:

Honestly, one of the best posts I’ve ever read on a DietBet. :smiley:

Shoot, usually when I'm winning the early rounds of a transformer the amounts are $18 to 22! :-/ Gotta get my butt in gear!

Do I have to submit a weigh-in to move to round 3 if I’m not going to win round 2? Was almost there, but then overnight I “gained” 4 pounds due to the start of my cycle and hormones. It’s amazing how much that actually plays in for me. I know it’s not a real weight gain and will disappear in a couple days, but I feel like weighing in and claiming it isn’t a positive mental move for me. Want to continue to round 3 because I was doing so well…

Agree with everyone, tons of water, take some Advil or Motrin and try an early morning cardio workout!!!

Juleees

Yes wait and weigh tomorrow! I weighed the exact same as last week and decided to submit because I know I’m gonna gain a pound or two due to my cycle he next few days! Good luck and “don’t sweat it” (or do, lol) but you can continue on as far as I understand!

Hi all! I’ve been reading and cheering you all on from the sidelines. It’s pretty clear I won’t make my weight goal this month and I’m so disappointed. I lost two weeks of exercising due to a minor medical procedure. Between that and menopause (!), I am struggling. Hope to be back in gear soon.

I'm still floundering. Trying to tweak some behaviors to be ready for the next one.

Kat1970

Thanks all! Am trying intermittent fasting to see how that goes.

  • One of my daughters is turning 5 today. Since I started diet bet in January, I have already celebrated 3 birthdays including my own. It works like this, I am careful-ish about my food choices, and I always choose to partake in (a small-sih slice) of cake because it makes me feel more included in the celebration. None of those days derailed my progress or set me back by any noticeable amount. This 4th birthday will be no different. My nutrition has been looking good since I started tracking it about a week ago. From my experience a week of on-plan days cancels out an off-plan day. Below is a screenshot from Chronometer showing the daily averages of my macros and 8 highlighted targets (I hand selected). Posting for accountability. Anyway, looking at my numbers Omega-3 has to come up or Omega 6 has to go down, going into a day with snacks like hippeas and cake isn’t going to help that, just going to make a mental note of that and let the day begin!

I think I need to find a new way to celebrate our birthdays. My husband doesn't really like cake anyway, but I feel like I have to put a candle on something! And for mine, it becomes an excuse to splurge. I just haven't sat down and thought out an alternative yet.

  • I ran my first half marathon this past Sunday!! Got a time of 2:30:55. Super proud, a feat that would have seemed absolutely impossible a few years ago, and now I’m already planning my next one!

Happy Monday, everyone! Less than 2 weeks left in Round 2. How's everyone doing? I personally need to make sure I stay focused during the remaining time.
