Let’s Get Lost – 4% Weight Loss Challenge (Day 21 of 83)

So, since I’m 33% of the way to my departure to Thailand (WHEE! I can’t wait for day 83!), I thought that I’d like to put a little challenge to myself in order to keep my momentum and focus strong. I participate in DietBet, and am just at the end of my first challenge. If you’re not familiar, DietBet is like, the best idea ever. Basically, you bet against yourself as to whether or not you can lose 4% of your bodyweight in 28 days. That’s a 1% loss per week, which is totally reasonable. For a 150 lb. person, that would be 1.5 pounds/week. Doable, right? Totally doable.

I just crushed my first challenge and one of the reasons why is because I had this nagging voice in my head that was like: “Trixie. Do you really want to lose the $30 you threw down three weeks ago over a sugary margarita?”.

In my mind, the voice was Chris Evans, but that’s neither here nor there.

Anyway, starting today, I’m going to challenge myself to lose 4% of my bodyweight by Easter. With a starting weight of 192 lbs., I’ll need to lose about 7.7 lbs. (rounding up) to meet my goal. That’s a weigh in goal of 184.3 lbs. by Easter. I WILL DO THIS. Just watch me.
