I have until tomorrow night to get a weigh-in and photos for my DietBet. As of today, it doesn't look like I'll make it. Ending after a holiday weekend wasn't great timing for me. As of this morning, my weight was up around 178. I need to be at or below 174.3 with my weigh-in outfit on to win. I don't think it's going to happen, but I'm going to give it one more day. I'm not going to do anything drastic, but I can keep my food light and drink a lot of water. The weigh-in deadline is tomorrow at 11:59 Pacific time. I expect to be in bed by then, but I'll probably try tomorrow morning and give it one more shot tomorrow night before dinner.
My husband had a strong start -- getting to 91% of his goal early on, but he also got caught up in the party atmosphere and doesn't think he'll make it either. There goes my best shot at the trip to the Biggest Loser Ranch.
I do think that it has been worth participating in these challenges. I had trouble for so long getting under 180, and now even after a holiday weekend, I'm still well below that milestone. So even if I don't win, I have made progress toward my real goal, losing the weight.
Thanks to those of you who clicked through my links to join the game, I have $45 in game credits. That means that next time I want to play, I can do it for free. I might take a little break, though. That intense focus is hard to maintain. I think that's why I keep falling short.
