DietBet: Win a chance to meet Hannah and Olivia in NYC!

I have had blog friends post DietBet challenges before and I've always been tempted, but then decided not to do it. I already feel like weigh-ins are high-stakes, so why add more pressure?

However, sometimes the bait is too good to resist.  Hannah and Olivia of Biggest Loser fame are sponsoring a game.  Not only is there a pot of more than $7,000 (and counting) up for grabs, but they are also going to randomly pick one of the winners for a trip to meet them for a workout in New York City.  One winner will get airfare for 2 from the USA or Canada, hotel, dinner and a workout with them, plus the DietBet winnings. I had almost the entire $25 bet hanging out in my PayPal account, so I decided to take a chance.

To win, I'll have to lose 4% of my body weight between March 16 and April 16.  As of today, that would be just a little more than 7 pounds. I'm hoping to lose a little before then to lower that weight loss goal. Even if I don't win, the extra motivation might just boost my weight loss a little. I also decided to donate 10% of my winnings to the Toledo Northwest Ohio Food Bank to get karma on my side.

Details on how the game works can be found at DietBet or you can watch the adorable video below.

    1. Thanks! I finally made a doctor's appointment for tomorrow and I'm starting to feel better tonight -- isn't that the way it always goes?
