im not interested in sending pictures of myself in "airport clothes" to anyone on the internet (including diet bet).

i would do it if its based on trust of people who have been around for a while (someone I would feel comfortable doing business with). If you do a ten week or so program (till purim?) then people who are claiming to lose certain amounts should be able to do so. Also I happen to not be a fan of a winner take all method. I would prefer a "hit X goal and participate in the winnings of everyone who doesn't hit X goal."

Voting is going to close tonight- so make sure to let your preference be known!

I think we'll take a week and start it next Monday 12/28.

Now, how much should we bet? 20? More?

Steaks and salmon and salads!

I honestly think it's easier to diet on vacation- having too much fun to obsess about food!

Depends where you go. When I was in FL I put up some pounds. But in HI I actually lost some.

Doing it locally wins! The challenge will take place right here, starting next week Monday.

I'm changing the poll- vote on the amount you'd bet!

As a start, I think it should be a 1 month challenge.

That being successful, we could attempt more or longer challenges.

Three step process.
A) exit Tapatalk
B) go to forums.dansdeals.com
C) vote
(In other words, as CM said, "get if that piece of c**p already".)
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Much simpler idea. I was considering writing that, but liked my format better.
