DDF Weight Loss Challenge
« on: December 18, 2015, 03:31:21 PM »
Anybody interested in joining a DDF weight loss challenge?

I'm thinking of hosting a weight loss bet, where all members bet an amount and the one who loses the most after a month wins all. This can be done on a site like Dietbet.com(drawback is their fee) or simply through paypal (but we'll be working more on the honor system, though). 

I can also put up a rigorous program, daily meal plans and recipes that can help you lose around 20lbs in a month (if followed strictly)

Any interest?

On Dietbet.com or here we'd just report the scale difference

Why do I have a feeling of deja vu, like there was a thread like this (at least) once before?

Regardless, I was planning on starting a diet today anyways so I'd probably be in.

I think the op put it there first and either decided to open his own thread or mods split it
