    Our community has always proudly claimed that we care more about who are members are as people than their capabilities online ingame.
    From my own experiences, and how I look to manage Tenacious, that could never be more true!
    People who choose Tenacious are usually looking for something more...
    Something more than a guild, more than a raid, more than a dungeon group;
    And when they get in here they discover their second family!

    As members of a family, we support each other and some of us choose to get more involved in each other's IRL struggles.
    A common topic is health. We've learned that what it means to be healthy is different for everyone;
    but we all look to support each other in whatever our individual goals are.


    While we are all different, we do all have one thing in common: We game!!!

    Gaming, in it's nature, often has us sitting at a desk for many hours straight,
    sometimes not sleeping enough, sometimes eating too much candy (Mendien),
    sometimes drinking energy drinks more than water,
    sometimes choosing a quick microwaved meal or a bag of chips over a more nutritious option;
    Because of this lifestyle some of us struggle maintaining a healthy weight.

    I'm one of them! ... Maybe you are too?
    Let's work together on a solution.


    ... TENACIOUS' 1ST DIEBET ...
    A Different Kind of Game!


    To my fellow gamers, sedentary chair-sitters, beer drinkers, basement dwellers, lovers of carbs and eaters of snacks ...
    For you I am offering a new kind of game!

    A game where the only obstacle you need to overcome is yourself.


    This DietBet will give you the chance to BET on YOURSELF!

    What is your goal?
    You must set your own goal and it must be approved by Averie.
    Your goal can be to lose weight or to gain weight.

    If you make your goal you are a WINNER and will get your money back (and potentially more).
    If you don't make your goal then your money remains in the pot and pays out equally to the other winners.

    Nothing would make me happier than to return everyone's $10 at the end of this challenge, or to roll it over into a new game right after!
    This is our first time doing something this way so let's see how it turns out.
    If you have a suggestion for how these sorts of things can be run better reach out to me and lets talk about it.
    I want people to have fun and also be encouraged to do better for themselves, and live a happier healthier life :heart:


    GAME DETAILS:

    This contest will run from July 15th - August 26th.
    This is a 6 week period.
    Traditional DietBets go for a 4 week period, but making goal in that short of time can be stressful and we already have enough stress in our lives!

    Your goal can be customized by you. For the purposes of this competition it must be weight oriented.
    If you need help deciding on your goal please PM me and we can talk about it.
    You can choose to lose weight, or to gain weight. Whatever makes sense for you and your health goals.
    My goal will be to lose 4% body weight in 6 weeks! To figure this out I will take my weight and multiply it by .04
    Example: 200lbs x .04 = 8lbs ... I will need to lose 8lbs by August 26th to be a winner!

    I will need a picture of your scale for your starting weight (example coming soon - check post below)
    Please make sure I can see your feets! This is how I will identify its you ;)
    If you choose to wear socks try to wear the same socks for both weigh ins.

    You may post your weigh in picture in this thread or you may PM it to me.
    You will never be required to post your weight publicly if you do not wish to.
    I will respect your privacy.

    Please send your $10 bet to paypal.me/tgAverie
    Upon receiving your bet I will PM you to confirm I received it - if you don't hear from me please double check!

    You will only be required to weigh in twice, once at the very beginning and once at the very end.
    A lot of us are used to weekly weigh ins and will likely post our weight every week for accountability and to encourage each other along.

    AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT I NEED FROM YOU ON JULY 15th
    I will be accepting weigh-ins as early as FRIDAY JULY 13th. I will release the weigh-in SECRET WORD on Friday Morning.
    If you submit your weigh-in AFTER July 15th that is also fine, but it will give you less time to make your goal.
    The end date,
    AUGUST 26th, is the same for everyone no matter when their initial weigh in is.

    20180701_134143.jpg

    Your Official Weigh-in Picture Must Include:

    - A clear display of your weight on the scale.
    - Your feet MUST be in the picture and standing on the scale.
    - The secret word that I reveal the day of weigh in.

    Other Things I need:
    - I need you to confirm your goal.
    The recommended goal is 4% weight loss for those looking to lose weight at a healthy and safe rate.
    If you need help figuring out what you want your goal to be feel free to ask for suggestions.
    - I need your $10 bet! paypal.me/tgAverie

    Hm, so I just had a thought that something like this might work better if we let people set their own individual goals. ... The contest is still in early enough stages where I can change that - what do you guys think?

    @Revis, I know you said something about your 4% being high for you - would you like it if I set it so people could set their own goals?

    Would anyone object to that? Thoughts???

    Depends on the goal. I can lose 8lbs, but no more, ever. If I used professional bmi, I could go by that, but i don't. Hard to set a fair goal I guess if you cherry pick.

    True, it would allow some people to pick easier goals .. but someone setting their own goal doesnt really affect anyone else winning.

    If I set my goal to lose 4% of my body weight, but someone else wants to gain 2% body weight ...
    If I meet my goal I'm a winner, if he meets his goal he's a winner.

    We can really turn this into something where we are only betting on ourselves, it doesn't really need to be a flat goal across the board.

    Edit: Idk this might be crazy talk, ahaha. We can see how this one goes and go for more customization options in the future.

    I think it would be good. Everyone has different goals but they are important to reach.

    Ok. Yeah. Let's get crazy. People can set their own goals! Gonna change the OP. If it fails then we know better for next time lol.

    The goal will need to be weight oriented so I can calculate it and it can be proven with a photograph.

    Worst case scenario, people choose goals that are too easy for them to reach and it's not very challenging. But, so long as people are paying attention to their health thats really the most important thing. I hope people will choose to challenge themselves! But I also want to be inclusive of people who have different goals and body types ... Like, for you Mendien to lose 4% would be pretty crazy I'm sure and you'd probably be forcing yourself to lose muscle trying to make that goal.

    Although the attraction of setting my own goals is there, I personally do better with a common objective.

    I can set the goal for you ;) you can have same as me :) 4%

    That's what the goal is for standard DietBets. Our contest gives more time so its less stressful but that's a safe steady amount of weight loss.

    We're 10 days away from the start of the bet. What do you plan to change to make your goal?

    I plan to be consistent with going to kickboxing, maybe even getting in up to 3x a week if I can handle it and I plan to clean up my diet A LOT ... Things have been really sketchy since I got back from Myrtle Beach diet wise lol. I am also on a tight budget this summer, so that means lots of chicken probably and maybe getting to some farmer's markets for (hopefully) cheaper healthier fresher vegetables.

    What about you guys? What are you planning for yourself?

    Getting myself a fitbit and planning on increasing my level of activity since I have a bit more energy.
    Will attempt to reduce my carb intake by at least 35-40%
    Meals will mainly be BBQ like chicken, salmon on a cedar plank, etc.

    I will not drastically change my diet since it would be hard to keep it in the future. I think reducing bit by bit is the solution when it comes to that, or we have a tendency to fall back to hold habits. I really want to not only loose weight throught this challenge, but loose at least 60-80 lbs over the course of the year.

    So, increase activity is the magic diet for me.

    Continue to lose weight, and also clean up my diet a bit. I've been more slack for a couple months.... Cooking keto but straying when eating out (once a week or so). I love food, but I know I feel better limiting carbs.

    I have been proud that I have been able to maintain weight, but it's time to get back to losing more... I am so close to getting under 300 lbs. And I still have up to 100 lbs more to go (depending on what weight feels ideal for my height and body frame).

    Definitely 4%. Got myself a little off track recently and it's time to buckle down.[​IMG]

    OP updated:

    I made a mistake, 6 weeks from July 15th is August 26th.
    This competition will be running until the 26th.
    Our optional "Half Way Weigh In" will be August 5th :)

    We've received a donation from @Zeklomontu and @Isentress!
    This means that even if we all make our goal the payout is guaranteed to be a bit more than the bet you've placed.
    Thank you both for your generosity and support! :D

    Starting Weight: 206 lbs
    Goal: 4% weightloss, 197.5 lbs

    Current Situation:
    - Gained way too much at Myrtle Beach and have been snacking ever since.
    - ... Literally eating ice cream cake and peanutbutter as meals sometimes. :joy: #donthate
    - Started going for walk/jogs on Saturday mornings 2 weeks ago.
    - Really love kickboxing but only make it once a week most the time.


    What's Changing on Monday:
    - Doing a loosely strict Keto diet. Will be avoiding breads rice cereals, all forms of processed sugar and processed convenience foods; but will still free eat most vegetables, excluding potatoes and corn in all forms. Probably will still eat carrots and tomatoes even though they're a bit higher in sugar, will need to see.
    - My goal is ketosis and I'll be monitoring that as well. So.. if carrots keep me from being in ketosis I'll stop eating them.
    - Want to see how Keto affects my stomach this time. I've had trouble in the past but I think with the supplements and the way I've been healing my body I'm up for it now :)
    - Will be working my way back to Intermittent Fasting after ketosis is reached and the hungry feelings start going away.
    - Will be doing kickboxing on Tue and Thu religiously and will do at least a 2 mile walk/jog every Saturday ... This is huge for me!!!

    LET'S GOOO!

    Starting Weight: 268.2 lbs
    Goal: 4% weightloss, 257.5 lbs


    Current Situation:
    - Just completed a 3-month chemo/radiation session. Was in bed for the duration, but also, have not conducted any form of exercise for the past year.
    - I also have Systemic lupus erythematosus (inflammation of kidneys, lungs and hardening of arteries) which did not enjoy the cancer treatment and decided to wake up after 5 years of being in remission...such a bad boy..lol

    - Way to much take-out and quick meals (lots of process foods, high calories, etc.)
    - Very little exercise
    - Just bought a fitbit! And yes, it is light purple..lol

    Starting as of Sunday July 15, 2018:

    - Attempt achieving at least 10K steps a day (fitbit app for the win)
    - Drinking at least 4-5 glasses of water a day. I get sick when I drink water (I know, it is weird, but been like that since I was a child). Will mix the water with Crystal Light flavors. Once the inflammation of my kidneys is lower, I will attempt 6 to 8.
    - Lunch will consist of vegetables, fruits, yogurt and/or cheese.
    - Eating before 8pm
    - No more take out.
    - Reduce salt intake by 80% (for some food, it will be hard...love my salt and butter on corn :( ) / reduce sugar intake by 70% (NOOO..my gummy bears :( ) / reduce grain and pasta products by 50% (sniff...spaghetti and meatballs salute)
    - Laughter...lots of laughter.

    We can do this guys!!! :)
