Those who know me know that I’m the very definition of a gadget girl. I love exploring new apps, new toys to play with, and anything that will help me shed this baby weight (my waistline has been replaced with an equator). One of the new apps that I had discovered while I was still working was DietBet.

There are two timeframes that you can bet on–6 months or 28 days. I’m not sure how much weight you have to lose in the 6 month games but in the 28 day games you have to lose 10% of your body weight. There’s a buy-in for each game. Some of the fees are as low as $20 and some as high as $150. Why the fee? Everyone who loses the 10% shares the pot. Yes, money. It’s paid out via PayPal.

Why DietBet?

A higher rate of success with weightloss. Studies have shown this people who do things as a group when losing weight are more successful because of the accountability piece. This has yet to be true for me but I’m interested to see how it will work out because I’m super competitive. The aspect of virtually doing it with a group is appealing as well given my lifestyle.

There’s a potential to make money. Yes, I’ve left my job but not because we’re balling out of control. Financially, emotionally, mentally it just makes more sense for me to stay home. But that also means any chance I get to bring in some more income is certainly welcome.

Because I need help. This is probably the hardest to admit because in truth, I love working out and being healthy. The transition from one to two children has been more taxing on my energy than I anticipated and I need some help getting back to where I was.

I’m excited! The game that I chose starts tomorrow and I’m ready to get it on and poppin!!!!!
