I wanted to give you a give update to the 4 week challenge I started recently. Since the kids are back in school (even if that just means 9-12) and I have a tad more time on my hands, this seemed like a great time to slim down. I have some very stubborn “baby weight” that won’t come off. (It is probably more like ice cream/pizza/M&Ms weight but no need to get specific.). The good news is that I lost some weight…2.4% to be exact by eating less and working out more.

I joined in a DietBet which means I’m “betting” I can to 4% of my body weight in 4 weeks. I am on track! I am super competitive so the thought of losing the $25 I paid to join the “bet” keeps me working out. I’ve been running and getting in workouts when I can. Unfortunately my Fitbit has stopped working. (It is over 3 years old so it is to be expected.) I might break down and buy a new one because it’s a great motivating tool. The Fitbit Aria scale Verizon sent me to review is great for keeping me honest. It records every time I step on the scale and graphs it on the web. I hate having the line go up so it motivates me to not overdo it. And this is not a scale that you can fool. No leaning back on your heels to get an extra 1/2 pound. I mean…not that I’d do that anyway.
