Diet Bet Update

Hi Everyone!

So remember back in October, Jessica convinced me to start a DietBet?!  I can't believe 5 months (and 5 rounds have already passed) and I am please to say that I have surpassed my 10% weight loss.

My initial weight was 246.8 and yesterday's official Round 5 weigh-in documented my weight at 212.8.  That's a total of 34 pounds lost since I began in October, and although it isn't the earth shattering loss I would've liked, I will happily take it!

Here are two photos from DietBet... I apologize that I wasn't beauty contest read for either of them:


This photo was taken October 21, 2014 at 246.8 pounds

 This photo was yesterday at 212.8 pounds

Hopefully you all see a difference!

  2. You look amazing!!! I am currently undergoing the pre-qualifications needed to get my insurance to approve a VGS. I somehow found your blog, read back a bunch (not to sound too stalkery. Hah.) and it has been SUCH a huge inspiration to me! We have very similar builds/features and my starting weight is 322. Much like you, I have never had issues, necessarily, with meeting guys or feeling a lack of confidence - but I see how your journey has been and it just resonates with me as something I will likely experience myself.

    Anyway, I am at the very beginning of my road, and you have come so far, so I wanted to let you know that I am inspired by your success! I just started blogging, as well, so I can look back at my journey and maybe (hopefully) help someone else in return.

    Also yay UNC! I spend a lot of time in Raleigh-Durham since my best friend lives down there, and am going to be moving there myself in the next 5 years! :)
