Diet Bet

Has anyone tried Diet Bet?
It is a website- www.dietbetter.com - that allows you to bet on yourself and compete with others to lose weight and win money.

I'm thinking I should do this and have that extra push to lose weight.

Since my fiancé and I are getting married in about 9 months, there is a lot to save for right now and a lot of things we will have to be paying for in the near future. So... losing money is not an option. Maybe putting money on the bet that I will lose 4% of my weight will give me that extra push to make sure I don't slack off and that I really do lose the weight.

Right now I weigh about 172. So 4% of this would mean that I have to lose about 7lbs. This is doable for a month's goal.

I get kinda nervous/excited thinking about doing this. It would sure put the pressure on to lose weight tho! And then at the end of the month, I'd be 7lbs less and either get my money back or that plus some. Seems like a win-win.
