Weigh-in April 22 and new DietBet

This week's weigh-in was nothing special -- I need to move the Monday weight under that 180-pound line.  I was 0.6 under last Monday's weigh-in, but up a little from yesterday.

Being the geek that I am, I have a spreadsheet where I track weight, calorie data, calories burned, average calories, percentage lost, etc.  My average calories are up a bit from last week but I burned more. The goal would be to edge the calories burned number up and get the calories consumed down.

Finally, I have to share some DietBet news. Hannah and Olivia are running another DietBet starting April 30. If you have emailed me recently, I may have sent you an invitation.  I was hoping that if I invited people and they decided to join, we would be DietBet "friends" (a new feature) and could support each other. If you would like to be invited, my email is toledolefty (just like my old blog name) at Gmail dot com. I hope that no one was annoyed by the invites.  I don't typically spam my readers but my DietBet posts were popular and people seemed interested in the game.

I already joined because that game lit a fire under me like nothing else has.  There is also going to be a special prize that is supposed to be BIGGER than the New York City trip.  Hannah and Olivia did a Google Hangout to announce the winner of the last trip and launched a new game. This was the biggest DietBet so far, I think, and DietBet is providing a new, shiny prize to entice more people to the service.  I am hoping maybe it will be a trip to the Biggest Loser Resort with Hannah and Olivia, or a trip to the Biggest Loser finale.

Also, I'm pasting an image of my geeky diet spreadsheet below. If you want a copy of my spreadsheet to use (if you are a geek like me and know how to customize formulas) email me at the address above and I'll send you the file.

Have a good week!


  1. I'm in! Thanks for the invite!

    1. Yay! This time I'm going to win. I could use the push with summer coming.

  2. Hooray! I think I just added you and Debbi as friends... this could be fun :)

    1. This could be really fun. My husband is going to sign up too, which means that I'll have even more support at home.

      Any other bloggies out there who sign up should leave a comment here so I can 'friend' you too.
