Mike's Story

Lost 77 lbs

Won $1,930

"The results themselves keep me joining games."

Weight has always been a bit of a struggle. I was big in high school, lost some by college. I then ballooned to my maximum weight when my first full-time job required me to commute; I ate out constantly, and didn't look my best for my wedding.

I lost about 40 pounds with DietBet 2 years ago, but didn't continue. I gained about half that back because I didn't stick with it. Then this fall I got back into the swing of things and lost 40 again. So, I'm down a net of about 60 pounds. I'm in the middle of a Transformer and just joined a few Kickstarter games for January.

I'm motivated to lose weight and keep it off this time. My family has a history of health issues such as heart problems, diabetes, and cancer. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer this year and I saw her treatments first-hand. I want to be in good shape to prevent health issues, or be able to confront them head on later in life.

DietBet keeps me motivated and on track. It gives me hard deadlines to meet. I enjoy knowing my fellow players are along for the ride.

Another huge factor is that I've found a diet and exercise plan that works for me. Since I know the plan works and I can and should lose weight, DietBet serves as the motivation to actually get it done. The results themselves keep me joining games. I love seeing the scale numbers drop. I feel great, have more energy, and am overall a more happy and productive person.
