I started a DietBet challenge on Sept. 1. I had a great whoosh going in to the first week and lost half of my goal, 3.8. Now I'm stuck, and I have 8 days to go and have to lose 3.4. Any suggestions? Besides patience and crossing my fingers?

People always lose more weight in the beginning of a calorie deficit. Google glycogen and you will see why.

Two more pounds to go! Homemade veggie soup, amped up exercise and water it is!

If you get desperate, people on Mark's Daily Apple have had success with the "potato hack." I tried it and lost 5 pounds. They pounds won't stay off though; it would just be a way to win your bet... At least that was my experience.

Thanks Nikita! I am so close, I weighed in naked today and I'm at my goal. But I have to weigh in with clothes on, and my clothes weigh about 1.5 lbs. :/

Won't that help you to lose weight? I know most women (although not me) tend to lose a pound or two. Personally, I'd trade with you' I'm 8 days late!

I'll let you know tomorrow.....so far, it added less than a pound, and then I went down 1.2 since yesterday, but now have to go down .8 by tomorrow.

And gee like I need more stress, the digital scale is giving me different readings. I just have to hope and pray its wonkiness goes in my favor tomorrow! I cannot wait until this thing is over!!!
