Diary of a DietBet: Final Weigh-In

Starting Weight:

Final Weigh-In:

Total Loss: 8.3

I haven’t written much in the last few weeks because a) I’ve been extra tired due to the increased activity level,  b) I’ve been focused on making good decisions and c) the small human has decided to wake up at 5AM on a regular basis. I also know that getting wrapped up in the day-to-day minutiae of losing weight isn’t good for my mindset. I get antsy and upset at the total amount of weight that I have to lose, and I just don't need that distracting me from my end goal. I'm pretty good at keeping my head down and chipping away at a task when it's something that I really want, and blogging daily actually interferes with that ability. So ultimately, this weight loss thing doesn't make for very interesting blogging. Sorry, not sorry.

So, obviously this DietBet is over, but I've already signed up for the 6-month/10% one starting on September 30th because I want to keep the momentum going. I'm confident in my abilities to win a portion of the end pot despite the next six months involving three very food-filled holidays. I'm tempted to do weekly updates but we'll see. I'm frequently too busy with life things to sit down and write about them.
