If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you all know that I have been working on shedding some unwanted pounds. So far, it has been going pretty good. I recently came across this website called DietBet.com where dieters bet a small amount of money and lose 4% of their body weight during a month long challenge. So here is how it works, DietBet has a number of challenges that start frequently. Once you find a challenge that you would like to join, you put down your bet, let's say $20 into the pot, you submit your weigh in to DietBet for verification, and the game begins. Now when I say you submit your weight, the only people that see that weight is the administrators of DietBet. Within the settings of your DietBet game, you can elect to not let the other players see your weight.
So here is how DietBet monitors against potential cheaters. When you sign up to join a game, you must submit a full length picture of yourself on the scale in what they call "airport security attire" and you will also need to submit a picture of your feet on the scale with a weigh in word that DietBet will give you (like coffee or fruit). You can write that word on a piece of paper or index card, lay it at the top of the scale and shoot the picture. Upload both pictures to DietBet for verification. Once you have been verified, you wait for the game to begin. It is really quite simple. You can visit here for a great explanation on their site of how it works. Once the game has ended, you will submit your final weight and if you have weighed in below your goal weight, then you will be asked to submit photos much like the way you did when we began the game.
Now that I have your full interested attention, you ask how do I choose which game to join. Well, it just so happens that I have a game that is starting on March 16th which is about ten days away. My DietBet has a starting bet of $20. You can click on the link above or here to get started. This is a fun way to lose weight, make some new friends, and make some money in the process. Come join me!
