There are lots of ways to motivate yourself to lose weight: for your health, to get into that dream dress, for better self-confidence… A motivation we don’t often experience for losing weight is a money incentive. In fact, we often spend more trying to lose weight! That’s why today, I’ve decided to tell you of a way you can earn money achieving your weight goals!
Cue DietBet. The concept is simple; bet on your yourself to lose X amount of weight in Y amount of time or else you lose your money. It’s such a genius way to get everyone motivated!
Once you register, you can choose between two plans: being a “kickstarter” or a “transformer.” For being a kickstarter, you have to lose around 4% of your weight in 4 weeks and for a transformer, 10% of your weight in 6 months. Then all you have to do is place your bet (normally around the 20-30$ mark), submit your starting weight and then get started! You can track your progress throughout too to help keep up your mojo.
DietBet will never share your weight with anybody else as long as you’ve turned that feature on in your profile so make sure to check that! Furthermore, they take what they do very seriously and make sure that there is no cheating. They’ll do this by asking you to submit two photographs and to include a word that they will provide- an idea similar to captcha on websites.
NOTE: this app is a great way to keep you motivated but make sure you stick with it! If you don’t, your bet will be placed in the prize pot for others to win. If you’re absolutely mastering your weight loss journey, however, and manage your goal, you will get a share of the prize pot! Ie. you’ll not only make your money back but also make a profit!
