After trying to lose this baby weight for years, I think I finally found the trick: Dietbet. Research shows that: it’s easier to lose weight with friends than by yourself and people who were offered financial incentives to lose weight were five times more likely to reach their weight loss goal.
With DietBet, you can set up a FREE four-week game with friends to lose weight. Everyone contributes money to the group's pot. Then, whoever reaches the goal weight by the final weigh-in splits the pot. The game organizer decides the amount of money each player has to bet and the amount of weight each player has to lose (4% or 8 pounds).
It's fun, free and it can help keep you on your toes. I lost 10 pounds in 4 weeks by DietBetting with friends, and it was so much easier than I expected it to be.
