Dietbet and grocery shopping

April 3rd, 2015 at 09:25 am

I lost this month's round by .3... .3 lbs!!! I was bummed but this is about long-term. Realistically, I only have 3 more lbs. until my 10% and that is my end goal weight. It's actually a bit under where I want to maintain. Those last few pounds are always the hardest, but I'll keep plowing away.

SO and I went bulk shopping yesterday. I increased our food budget to $400 for this month. We spent $300 at BJ's. The goal is to use the remaining $100 to round out our meals each week. In future months, I expect to put our grocery budget back at $300. We got laundry and dish detergent and paper towels on this trip which account for about $50 of the total amount. SO and I each get one 'throw-in' during joint trips. SO picked a pretty expensive item, so we'd have been even better had he not gotten it. It was meal replacement bars. While expensive - $20 for 12 - SO loves them and often does not have time to eat the lunch I packed him. I'd much prefer him have these on hand rather than come home 12 hours later having had nothing since breakfast (which he's done several times).

    I've read a little about dietbet and wanted to join but had to sign up for the waiting list. It sounds like fun to me. Have you found it to be pretty positive so far?

    Denise, most definitely! I've won all my one-month bets. This is my first 6 month one. My goal was to win at least 4 rounds, but I've already lost two, so I have to win the rest to stay on track. From everything I've read, winning the 6th month (10%) more than earns your money back, so I'll take the slow and steady approach.

    For me, the money is a great motivator and the community is really supportive. They also just introduced maintenance bets. After this, I will be at my ideal weight, so I'll probably check into the maintenance bet to see if it's worth it.

    Thank you for the response. I hope to get an email from them soon. I don't know that I'll actually do it but it would be nice to try at least once. Smile
