Social Dieting – DietBet – Lose 4% of your total weight….and maybe win a few $’s

After I returned from my annual family & friends July 4th trip to my hometown Kennebunkport, Maine, I noticed my pants were a little snug.

Coincidentally, I then saw an old friend of mine posting a social dieting competition on Facebook using the DietBet website.  I read almost the entire site, the rules, FAQ’s, history, etc. and it sounded like a great idea.  Encourage your friends to join you in a group weight loss competition; throw in a few $’s to make it fun and everybody wins.

I’m organizing a DietBet to start one week from today, July 23rd and the goal is to lose 4% of your total weight in 28 days.  Whoever loses the 4%, splits the pot ($10 x number of people playing).

Join me no later than Sunday July 22nd:

If you have any questions about how this works DietBet does a great job of explaining the rules, how to prevent cheating, etc. which you can read here:

Their FAQ’s answers any question you could have.

Join me!  This is open to the public.  Feel free to post on Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Invite your friends.
