Dietbet

Has anyone done a dietbet? You basically bet on your WeightLoss through an app. Mainly a USA thing I think but I follow Fatgirlfedup on instagram and she has one starting and it's a $30 bet and you have to lose 4% WeightLoss.

I was hoping it might motivate me and I just wondered if anyone else had done one?

I've considered it, but didn't go through with it after reading the terms and conditions. They are very specific about not losing too much weight each month etc and have other restrictions about how/when to weigh. The few challenges/bets I look at were also a bit happy clappy for my liking - I think you have to lol carefully and find a style you're happy with.

I decided I'd rather go it alone, but I think financial incentive (if you can risk losing the money and feel fairly certain you can hit the target loss!) I think it's probably a good support system.

I've done one and keep considering doing another. It was a 4 week one and I think it was $30. The process of registering weights was simple and straightforward. If you do one let me know and I will do it too, want to lose a few pounds.

What I would say is I always weigh myself first thing in the morning and this is the weight I logged as starting weight. It would have been smarter to send a weigh in photo later in the day as I am usually a lb or two heavier as the day goes on.
