This is going to be my added incentive. I'm going to be very open here on the blog and actually share my starting weight (on day one...which I've never done before in all of my weight loss posts) and my weekly weigh ins and finish weight. I have never been this transparent about my weight before. To start it off, here is my before shot:
I didn't want to pose in the sports bra and Nike Pro shorts so as not to scare you off, but I did want to document in form fitting choices what I look like now. I want to be able to look back in 5 weeks and see a visual difference. The scale matters only in the sense that I'd love to win the DietBet, but if I end up losing inches and missing the actual weight, that's fine too. And it's clearly about how you look and feel and not what the scale says, but one thing I know is that I have 4% of my body weight to lose. It will do me good in every sense, especially racing!
To me, anything that will help support all of the hard work and training that I'm doing is worth continuing to do. The last DietBet motivated me, and I've maintained that same weight from the end, but now I need to take it a step further and really shake off some of those pounds that don't want to budge without more portion control.
And I've shared this picture before. It reminds me that even though I've come a little ways from the beginning of my weight loss and healthy living journey, I'm not to the destination yet (and just looking at this makes me realize there may have even been a little bit of back tracking). I've still got a ways to go to hit my final goal, and I'm excited to snap into gear with this DietBet.
So, the DietBet starts March 12th, and weight in starts March 10th-11th. Have you been looking for some motivation in losing a few pounds? Come join this DietBet! The added incentive of winning money (or even just not losing it), is an added advantage. It would also be fun to all be in on it together. We can check in and share our successes each week. I'm definitely going to make my post weekly, and I'd love to hear how yours is going in your own posts or in the comments of mine.
