Wanna play a game??

I know I’ve said this before… Losing weight is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do. (second hardest was quitting smoking, yep, heard that one before!!)
I was recently approached by the folks at Dietbet.com with an interesting way to “up the stakes” (ha ha) in my weight-loss and perhaps make it more exciting. (cause let’s face it folks… dieting is BORING)
HAVE FUN. LOSE WEIGHT. MAKE MONEY.
Have you heard of DietBet? It’s a clever new way to lose weight … they call it a “social dieting game.”By turning your weight loss goals into a competition, it turns losing weight into a fun sport. And by putting money on the line, they make it possible to get paid to lose weight!

DietBet is hosting an “NYC Moms Dietbet” that starts on February 12 and ends 4 weeks later on March 11. The buy in is $40. Each player’s goal is to lose 4% of their body weight. We use before and after photos that are privately submitted to DietBet to verify winners. Those who reach their weight loss goals of -4% will split the pot among the winners, not a winner-take-all model.

Like-minded Moms in the DietBet can support each other by sharing healthy family-friendly recipes, workout tips and words of encouragement.

Let’s make this citywide Moms game HUGE.

Get your friends to join — the more players, the more competition, the more fun, and the bigger the pot. This game is not exclusive to Moms in NYC, so feel free to invite your non-NYC Mom friends!

Now let me tell you a little about Dietbet.com

As per their website:

“DietBet is pioneering a whole new way to lose weight. We call it Social Dieting.

With DietBet, 90% of people lose weight. Why? Because we bring people together to lose weight as a community. The conventional approach to weight loss is to focus on the individual … “calories in, calories out”. Look around: it isn’t working.

As Drs. Christakis and Fowler write in their book Connected, weight gain is a social problem and it requires a social solution. We agree! By making weight loss a fun, social activity, DietBet provides accountability through competition, collaboration, and financial commitments. And because DietBet isn’t winner-take-all, players end up supporting each other and laughing their way through the whole experience.

Losing weight doesn’t have to feel tedious and lonely. Try it and you’ll see how a game can change your life!”

You can read about this and so much more on their website dietbet.com.
