A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Do you ever feel that way? That was me, today. Except it was 11 hours late and $30 short. Let me explain: 4 weeks ago, I joined the DietBet train. I want to get in better shape and lose a few pounds. I gave birth to a baby boy 7 months ago. The baby weight dropped pretty quick, but then I just plateaued. I wasn’t where I wanted to be, yet. I would try to bribe myself saying, “If I lose some weight, then I can buy some new clothes.” Almost immediately, I hear the other voice in my head saying, “Yeah right….as if you will go and buy a new wardrobe. That would be so expensive.” Then I heard about DietBet. There are a variety of games to choose from. The one I did was lose 4% of my body weight in 4 weeks. I’ve heard that a good rate is 1-2 lbs per week and I was in that category. So I put my $30 in the pot. It did motivate me. I dusted off the treadmill that hasn’t been used in a long time. I pulled out the kettle-bell, buried in the corner of the family room. I was more careful about what I ate. The first week -2lbs! Yes! I was so excited. The second week had some hicups and weeks three and four were good, but not good enough. Sadly, yesterday when it was time for the final weigh in, I was 1.8 lbs. shy of my goal. AND THAT’S OK! This week I also ran and walked 6 miles in one day. Something I could not do 4 weeks ago. Today, I felt like I should keep trying. I went on the treadmill and put in 20 minutes. I weighed myself before showering…and I had met my goal. 11 hours after the deadline!!
