DietBet gives me a 26% chance of succeeding now. I did the Body Weight Simulator test, and I could just make it work if I cut to 1,600 calories a day, 4 meals of 400 calories each, just like the Flat Belly Diet. It's possible, just. I would have to do some actual planning before eating something. I just put together a 400-calorie breakfast plan. I remember that LoseIt's premium features actually allow me to plan meals for future days, but I haven't been using this feature. I definitely have a strong resistance to the idea of making a plan and sticking to it. I remember that was the big sticking point for me with The Beck Diet.
Before I get too hard on myself, though, look at the trends for the last year. The progress I have made is no illusion, it's just that I have gotten a little stuck in the last few weeks. I have a steady trend of dropping weight since January 1, and the last month I struggled with colds and a sinus infection (plus an eye infection) that really derailed me. Now that I'm mostly healthy (except the continued troubles with my eye), I expect to begin losing again. I'm just not so sure I can lose enough in 14 days to win the DietBet.
