Somehow, it is already June. And 2013. But we won’t go there. How did that happen!? The third round of Beth’s Journey DietBet ended yesterday, and people have been asking me to host another round, so here we go!
Beth’s Journey DietBet: Take 4 will start on Wednesday, June 5, and run for 4 weeks. It’s a $25 buy in, and everyone who hits the goal of losing 4% of their starting weight in the 4 weeks during the challenge will split the pot. This post explains how it works in a little more detail, but that’s the gist. Everyone who hit the 4% goal during the first game I hosted got $43.25, and $49.33 for getting to the goal in the second round. Results are still being calculated for the game that ended yesterday, but it seems like you definitely get your money back (and then some!) if you hit the 4% goal. Personally, I hit the goal in round 1, didn’t make it in round 2, but it’s looking good again for round 3!
It’s kind of crazy to look back at the stats from the first two games I hosted, and this doesn’t include the one that just ended yesterday!
Add to that 217 players, $5,425 in bets, and 1,063 pounds lost (so far) from the game ending yesterday, and we’re looking at 872 players, $22,050 in bets and over 5,055 pounds lost! Isn’t that insane!?!
Looking forward to seeing some of you over at Beth’s Journey DietBet: Take 4!
