I am always looking for (and needing) motivation. I find it a lot on Instagram (I am lduval14, follow me and then see who I follow…a ton of great people and motivational sites). One girl I follow on Facebook and Instagram is Sunshine. Her blog title is Sunshine’s Journey to 199. She is a great person and is also working hard to obtain her goals.
She is who introduced me to Diet Bet. It is a website where people can set up “games” for weight loss. It is monitored closely so people cannot cheat, and you pay to enter the game. If you win, you split the pot of money with the other people who also won. So, worst case scenario, you win your initial money back and best case, you win some extra money for smaller jeans!
Right now, the game I am in is with Sunshine and the goal is to lose 4% of my body weight in 4 weeks. It cost $25 to join the game and the “pot” is now over $21,000!!! You can share success, discuss strategies, like comments, become friends with other gamers, and really find a good support system in an easy to use, online forum. You can also share your workouts and connect other apps (like my fitbit) to help you track your activity on this site as well. I will definitely let you know how it goes and I am also planning on starting my own game once I get back from vacation because I am sure I will need the extra motivation!
Here is the website….check it out and let me know what you think!
Next is AchieveMint. This is a no-brainer.
Basically it is exactly as the picture says. If you are an app user, mostly a fitness app user, you create an account, keep tracking your weight, workouts, steps, etc. like always and AchieveMint uses your data (kind of like you would give information through a survey, but without the survey….or work…or anything) and once you hit a certain amount of points, you receive a $50 gift card. Period. Nothing else. Like I said, no-brainer. It takes some time to accumulate your points, but who cares, you are working out and stuff anyways, might as well get a little something in return. Like I said, new jeans 🙂
Here is the link to this site as well.
Stay motivated people!!
Please let me know if you have any other tips and tricks up your sleeve!!!
