Lose The Freshman 15: DietBet Winner?


Hey guys,

The DietBet ends today. If you don’t know what or don’t remember what DietBet is I’ll gladly explain to you. DietBet is a site where you are able to lose weight socially. You put money into the pot (hence the bet) and have four weeks to lose 4% of your body weight. The whole idea is that you’re more likely to lose weight if you’re with friends and are able to win money.

When I first started the Lose the Freshman 15, I was 166.5 pounds. If I had lost 4% of my starting weight I would be 159.84 pounds. However, we started the DietBet a week later. If you remember correctly, in the first week, I lost an astounding 4 pounds, some of which I gained backed the following week. This means that when I started the DietBet I weighed 162 pounds and 4% less would be 155.5 pounds.

When I weighed myself today, I weighed 160 pounds. I might not have won but I’m excited about my progress. I’m 6.5 pounds lighter than when I started! Egad that’s so great.

There’s going to be another Lose the Freshman 15 DietBet that starts on Thursday so remember to sign up for  Round 2. It’s only $20 to enter. Remember, you only have to lose 4% of your weight to win. If you don’t win, the other winners divide up your money. For this next round I have to lose 6.4 pounds.

I’m nervous but at least it’ll be helping me lose as much weight as I possibly can before the summer ends. I have to be a bridesmaid in two different weddings (scary). I’ll be running, doing pilates, and dieting using the tips I learned from the Drop10 Diet

My goal for this summer is to run at least 300 miles, which sounds a bit hard but it’s not really. All I have to do is run for 5 miles a day for 5 days a week for three months. If I put the treadmill on 5 I only have to run for an hour.

Toodles lovelies,
