Goal weight set.
Let’s do this!
This is my first DietBet since 2014. I failed that bet horribly. It was a six month transformer bet and I was booted during the first round of cuts. I tried to write a blog series about it to keep myself accountable. Nope.
Back in 2014 I was just coming off my first full marathon. I wanted another challenge, as if the marathon wasn’t enough for one year. Today I am coming off of nothing, nada, zip. I already feel like I am starting off on a better foot than how it was back then. It is also a 37 pound lighter foot…
DietBet may be for four weeks but doesn’t it only take 21 days for something to become a habit? I spent June through August letting my healthy habits slide thus leading to maintaining my weight all summer. That would be a super thing, if I was already at goal weight. This DietBet is the kick in the pants that I very much need. With a goal of 7.9 pounds to lose within the bet, it is a definite kick indeed.
Laying out a plan and sticking to it is fundamental for success. I know the aspects of my daily grind that need to be tweaked to ensure my weight loss graph shows a downward slope. Besides the obvious parts of the plan, eat right and exercise, my attitude is everything. I recognize my past disappointments when I tried Diet Betbefore but that doesn’t mean it is my truth now. Past failures aren’t worth a dime unless I just throw up my hands and say “well this always happens!” Ever heard of a self-fulfilling prophecy?
The next month will fly by but in an attempt to write more, this post will be one of three. If you want to sign up for the Weight Watchers Fall Diet Bet (referral link) you still can! Join me and let’s keep each other accountable!
