Mikele's Story

Lost 50 lbs

Won $4,349

"My husband and I are renewing our vows and I am able to fit into the dress of my dreams!"

After injuring my back last year, I gained a lot of weight and was the heaviest I had ever been in my life. I became depressed and withdrawn. I lacked energy and had a hard time doing anything with my four children. Seeing the disappointment on their faces when they wanted me to play with them or run around on the playground was one of the biggest signs for me that I needed to make a change. I also knew that I wouldn’t be able to recover from the back injury if I was unable to shed the extra weight.

I decided that I really needed to do something, and I was following Jillian Michaels who then hosted a DietBet. I had never heard of it before but I was very interested in the concept and decided to give it a try! I had so much fun, met my goal, and won some money in the process! I was hooked after the first game.

DietBet is so effective for me because it provides camaraderie, incentive, and accountability. It inspires me and the friendly competition is great motivation!

Since losing the weight, I’ve had some major milestones. I was able to hike a very challenging trail and piggyback my toddler most of the way. My husband and I never had a real wedding so we are making up for it by renewing our vows and I am able to fit into the dress of my dreams! And by saving all of my winnings from DietBet, I was able to buy a custom-made headpiece and jewelry to go with my wedding dress for our vow renewal this September! For the rest of my life, when I see the pictures I will feel pride in my accomplishments with DietBet!
