Motivation--Bet with DH

I have been having a motivation problem off and on for couple years.

DH agreed to a bet on weight loss...nothing else has kept me on track. We finalized the rules yesterday, so starting this thread to keep track of the challenge. And anyone can encourage me, or use this idea or join in listing weights!! Tough to come up with some reward that WASNT food.

THE BET:
We weigh every Thursday morning. Whoever loses less that week puts $10 into the pot. Whoever loses 20# first, gets the entire pot!

DH and I made a weekly wager on weight loss----every Thurs A.M.
12-12 196.0 Me.........227.5 DH
12-19 ..192.0.........226.0 DH
12-26.....194.0......224.0 DH
I am down 2 # and DH is down 3.5#

2014 Starting to do BF (eggs) for supper.
01-02

My challenge with DH:

I had a wager with my DH several months ago. We simply bet on who would stay on plan the longest. If I fell out first, I would have to mow the lawn for a month. If he did, he would have to do the bills and paperwork for a month.

Guess how long he lasted?? 2 DAYS

Funny, though, it was just what I needed to get myself going again. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to keep me motivated indefinitely. So, I thought it best to come back to LCF and get some REAL support

Anywho, sounds like you and DH have a great bet going!! Go get him, Girl!!

Thanks! Mine has actually stayed on for almost 3 weeks. And I have also. Last night, I actually grabbed a snack, and then put it back after I thought of the bet. So it is helping me.

So sounds like he's going to be a tough nut to crack! Congrats on staying in control last night! There's nothing like a bet hanging over your head to give you a little motivation!!

I think you're going to win this week, even with the crackers! Tell him to get his $10 bill ready to deposit!

So far, on this week, I am down .5 and DH is up .5 lbs.
And that was after pizza last night (long, long day!)

So I have hope for this week!

So far this week, I am down 1 and DH us up 1.5. But he can get a larger swing in just a few days.
Did eggs and sausage for BF, so far so good.
My parents want me to take them for a church soup luncheon, so I will be off-plan at lunch. Have to do salad for supper?

Really depressing.....DH and I switched bet to monthly $10, and I am the same weight I was starting this bet in December, but DH is only down .5 lbs also.

We need to figure out something that will work.............evidently have not figured that out yet, huh?!

Switched to monthly challenge (bet) with DH, but tomorrow is the day. So will update with those numbers. Then will look at totals so far.
