Jiggling for Gillio: Update #1


Check out my weight loss graph:

As you can see, it's been a rocky ride but the proof is in the progress.

If you recall, I had started a Dietbet in September.  I won $40.44, then turned around and placed that money into two bets- one bet for $25, another for $15.

I won, but by the skin of my teeth.  I made the goal, but only after doing two hours of cardio and basically sweating out 1/5 of a pound.  I won $34.45 on a $15 bet, and $44.64 on a $25 bet.

So in happy news,  the Gillio Fund has been updated!

My $25 I had invested in the first bet has grown into $79.09.
Guess what I'm going to do with it?  Yup.  I'm rolling this train right into healthy BMI town.  I joined someone's $25 bet, and started my very own $15 dietbet based upon my current love affair with a particular tasty sauce.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: The Sriracha SlimDown! 

If you've got a little additional ballast to lose, consider joining me.  The game starts on Tuesday (but you'll have two weeks after that date to join), and it'll run until December 3rd.  The goal is to lose 4% of your body weight in that time.

Can you do it?

It's only a $15 bet, too. So if you change your dietary habits in that time frame and avoid eating out as much as you're currently doing so, just think of how much money you could save.  $15 is a cheap price to pay for a powerful motivator.

I'm hoping that this dietbet will be the one to move me from the 'Obese' category of the BMI scale to the 'Overweight.'  Small steps, but they're all adding up!


  1. Ah... I'm so tempted to join but I'm afraid it might not work out either...
    But it's not the goal, it's the process that's important right?
    But I don't want to lose $15
    But there's a chance I might not lose
    But there's a good chance I might lose
    But it's only 4%
    But that's +11 pounds for me...

    1. If it's any further temptation for you, there's now 11 players and the pool is currently $165! We'd love to have you there- it'd be fun. Well, as fun as losing weight could ever be. :)

      $15 is way cheaper than the gym. And every time you'll see something super tasty, you'll think to yourself 'Is that worth losing a bet to eat?!" It's truly a powerful motivator. I've lost two bets earlier in the year, and it really sucks. But each time I've lost weight and still feel like I got my money's worth.

      It's after the bet that you have to watch out for, haha! EIGHT POUNDS IN 4 DAYS! Yeesh.
