If you are not familiar with Diet Bet, you can google it and read about it. I just completed my first one ever, and I made goal by 0.2 pounds- eek! However, I thought it would be fun to get some 3FC people together and have our own competition. If you read about it and decide you want to do it, comment here and I will set one up if we can get at least 10 people on board. I would like to do a $25 bet. It was super fun and motivating for me, and I think a lot of others would like it as well. You are a winner and get your bet back as long as you lose 4% of your weight in 4 weeks. You also get to split the winnings of those who don't make goal (I doubled my money in the game that just ended). Then you can take your winnings and buy some cute new jeans since you will need some.

PS. your weight is kept private, and no one sees your weigh in pics other than the admins over there, so no worries about that. There is also an app for smartphones that makes it super easy. It's a lot like facebook for dieters, lol.

I would love a 3FC dietbet, but I'm already in 3 that end the end of this month and they won't let you do more than 3 at a time. :) Please keep me posted if you end up starting one. You can play for charity too. :)

I've been thinking about doing one but was slightly leery of the whole thing but if other 3fc do it... I'm also going to be on vacation in mid September, so I'm in if you want to start one in the next couple days. Otherwise I'd try one in October? GL, fun idea.

I was thinking of starting one around the 20th. And we can keep doing new ones if everyone wants to join. You can also join late if you don't make it in on the start date.

Thanks for setting up the game. It looks like I'll be out of town for the final weigh in, but I wanted to wish you guys luck!

Don't forget the sign up ladies, there has only been one other person so far. Go HERE (http://diet.bt/142hKOm) to get on board! We can all use the extra motivation. Hope to see you there.

I'm joining! It may be awkward trying to take a selfie including my body + feet on the scale without a full-length mirror... haha.

I might join. I can't look at the site at work anymore because the gambling filter catches it.

I signed up! I couldn't get my photos to transfer before work, so I'll be submitting them sometime this evening.

I weighed in at 133.8 this morning, but will have to do my official weigh in tomorrow morning. I didn't realize the word "Gym" had to be in the scale photo - I had it in the full body.

How often are people going to be weighing in for this? I had a whoosh (where were you for the end of my last dietbet *shakes fist*) so I could show progress already.
