You know I’m not one to advocate dieting as a way of life. I’m much more likely to champion small, lasting changes over quick weight loss. That said, it’s nearly time to put on bathing suits and that means weight loss time. The winter was particularly hard on the mid-section, with a lack of outdoor exercise and an abundance of donuts.
It’s really just a matter of me getting my butt back into gear both physically and diet wise but that always requires some motivation and the threat of a bathing suit doesn’t seem to be enough.
So, I decided to start a DietBet and ask you all to join me in the next 3-4 weeks of focusing on clean, healthy eating and moving our bodies more. The best part is there is cash involved! Everyone who joins our bet gives $30 and after the final weigh-in, the pot gets split by anyone who meets their goal weight that they set at the beginning. It’s not a winner takes all scenario, but rather and everyone’s a winner deal, which I love. Anyone who does the work gets rewarded. Last time I did this, I lost weight and not only got my initial joining fee back but a little extra on top of it.
You also get a fun community with DietBet and since I’m running this one you can be sure to hear from me regularly. Anyone who has done a cleanse with me knows the power of community! So, login here, create and account and join The Summer Reinvention DietBet today.
Can’t wait to see the after bathing suit pictures!

I am at a weight now where I feel uncomfortable in my skin, and with summer coming that makes it even worse. I may just join you this month!
Do it! The more the merrier!

It really makes a huge difference, I think.
