Recently, in one of my online communities, one of the women started talking about a weight loss game. She told me it runs the course of a month and every single time she’s played she’s lost five to eight pounds. Of course, this sounded amazing to me and I’m always up for more encouragement for doing what I should be doing (like exercising, eating properly, taking care of my body).
So I signed up.
Starting on Monday (Feb 13), I will be playing the Game On! Diet. I am excited! I convinced my mom to join too, and we’re on a team together (we have 5 teams for our game). We’re all chipping in $20, for a prize pool at the end of $200 for the team that wins.
The best part for me, is that winning isn’t based on the amount of weight lost. The system for the Game On! Diet is based on points. I get points for doing things I should be doing. Things like drinking water, exercising each day, getting enough sleep, and eating 5 small meals a day. The more points you earn the better chance you have of winning (of course your scores are averaged with your partner’s).
So why am I writing about this? First, because I’m excited. And secondly because I’m going to be including updates on my progress as I go through the game. Also, writing this will keep me accountable for my actions.
It’s also because I’m heading out of town today, and I need something to post in my absence. So wish me luck this month!
