It's the beginning of February, which likely means that most people who pledged to get in shape for 2013 are already losing steam on their resolutions (myself included!!). My motivation to get up and go to the gym is pretty much nonexistent. Apparently health and well-being aren't sufficient enough motivators. I need something more, something a bit more tangible.
Enter Diet Bet, a website that allows you to join up with other people (friends, family, or even strangers!) and bet that you can lose 4% of your starting weight within 4 weeks.
If you hit the 4% mark, you are considered one of the competition's winners, and all the winners split the pot. Nothing like some cold, hard cash to get you up and moving, right?
Starting on Monday, February 11, I am officially participating in one of these competitions. It's being organized by a Blush!nk, a WeddingBee friend, but it's totally open to anyone who wants to join. Our competition's wager is $20, and we currently have enough participants that the pot is just under $500 (and expected to break that threshold in the next few days).
So, if you're interested in getting your butt in gear and potentially pocketing a couple hundred dollars, consider joining up! Here's the link to join our competition.
