Don’t worry about the word Diet in DietBet ~ This is not a deprivation challenge.
I have been seeing several DietBet challenges going on for the past year and was always hesitant to join one. Basically because it involved putting a pre-determined amount of money in a “pot” and chances of getting your money back, plus some, depended on my willpower to lose the target percentage of weight in 28 days.
It has been no secret, if you have been following this blog or my social media channels for a minute, that I get the workouts and runs in – but the issue I have is food and drink consumption, portion control and calories.
So when the team at DietBet contacted me about hosting my very own challenge (they must have realized my struggles too) I decided to host one so I could overcome my food issue once and for all. I asked my friend and fellow fitness blogger Sheila Simmons of The Frugal Exerciser to help and she happily accepted.
I figured contributing money to the pot to try and win it back PLUS some was just the incentive I need to win this battle with food because I don’t like leaving money on the table, or in the pot in this case. J
So how can you participate in this challenge too? Watch this quick video and keep on reading the details below because we would love it if you would join Sheila and me in this challenge because these challenges tend to be more effective with a group of people.
As an extra incentive to sign up for this challenge, we are giving away a $25 Whole Foods gift card to the person who refers the most people to this challenge.
So ask your family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances to sign up too. The more the merrier! Email me with the names of the people you referred at Diatta@femmefitalefitclub(dot)com.[insert video here]
