Diet Bet

I have finally hit my breaking point in regards to what I am willing to put up with RE: My weight. I have gained back everything I lost after I started hooping, and added on an extra 20 pounds just for good measure, so now I'm sitting at 221.

I know exactly what I have to do to get back to a comfortable weight (and I mean comfortable literally...being this heavy is decidedly UN-comfortable). I just haven't had the motivation to do it.

Last night I sort of broke, and realized I was in the right place to actually make it happen.

I've been running 3 times a week for a month and of course that made no change because I haven't done anything with my diet. The diet is the biggie.

So I've got my calorie budget. I've got a bunch of foods I'm familiar with and know their calorie "costs" and how much they fill me up. I've got Habit RPG to hold me accountable so that I am less tempted to cheat (cheat and have an UNCHECKED DAILY, NOOOOOOO, ANYTHING BUT THAT!!!)

But I've also put money on it. I signed up for Diet Bet and joined the current game that Shay Carl is hosting, the goal is to lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks (for me, that works out to about 2 pounds a week, which is totally reasonable). You pay in to join a game (this one was $30), and anyone who reaches the goal gets to split the pot with the other winners, so you make a little bit of profit. :)

I've decided that I'm going to keep signing up for new games when I complete the previous one, and keep reinvesting my winnings into new games. It should take me a little less than a year, pretty close to my birthday actually, to get to my goal comfy weight (which is 150, I've been there before and I know I feel good about myself at that weight). And when I get there, I'll hopefully have a nice little sum of money to play around with and reward myself with something nice. Haven't decided what yet, I'll figure it out when it gets closer!
