Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Okay, now I'm hungry.... Seriously though, the first DietBet is in the books and I squeezed out a win, although I cut it way too close for comfort!!

Just Keep Moving…

I am 24-25 days into three of my diet bets (my DietBet four-week bet ends next week) and 25-28 days into my first step bets.  I am on target to win all of my wagers, but this has been an interesting ride so far!

Allergy Detour
