Okay I’m obsessed. Remember how I posted yesterday about my discovery of Social Dieting? At the time there were 2296 people in my bet and $57,400 in the pool.

Well that changed slightly:

 

Over 2300 people have joined the party for the next 25 days. AWESOME!

I’ve committed to two different Diet Bets (with about 2 weeks overlap in the middle) so I’m in this until 4/30/13. I’m supposed to lose 6% of my weight in 6 weeks. Can I do this? Sure. Is it healthy? Weight watchers would say no (1-2 pounds a week is best). I could argue being overweight isn’t exactly healthy either so I’m doing this and I figured I might as well document it here. I’ve got several races coming up, most notably the 2013 Dumbo Double Dare at Disneyland (you do a 10K on Saturday and a Half Marathon on Sunday). I’d like to be fitter when I show up to the starting line because fitter means faster.

So how did Day 1 go? Not bad actually. I swam for an hour and wrote down everything I ate. That’s pretty much a perfect health day for me.

25 more days for Diet Bet 1!
