Good News + Diet Bet: Round 3

Hey everyone!

I am going to go straight to the good news here... I'm happy to share that I will continue writing for this blog. Now, the next step is finding the time and balance to make that happen! 


My goal is to make myself and my health more of a priority again, and this blog is a big source of accountability for me. I hope that some of what I share here can be found helpful or inspiring for you, too. Initially, I will be checking-in here once per week. Hopefully, I'll be checking-in more often as time goes on and priorities shift back in to place.

So, what's new? Well, I joined a diet bet this week! I have 4 weeks to lose 4% of my body weight or else I lose $30. The past two times I participated in a diet bet, I met the goal and got my money back. My willpower definitely increases at the thought of losing money. I guess you can call me cheap (and I say that with a smile on my face).

Yesterday, I weighed in at 243 lbs. That is about 10 lbs. up from my lowest weight of the year. However, the year isn't over, yet. I still have time to make it back down to my lowest weight of the year and to hopefully surpass it? Okay, let me try to write that sentence again without a question mark. 

I still have time to make it back down to my lowest weight of the year and to hopefully surpass it!!!

Given the frequency of my updates are more limited now, I would love to hear if there's anything specifically you'd love to hear more about in upcoming posts. Leave a comment down below with some suggestions or send me an email! I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Kalyn, I am SO happy that you've decided to continue writing your awesome blog! It is a true source of inspiration to me. Good luck with the diet bet. I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to get back on track with losing weight--I've fallen off of the wagon big time. I'm so happy that you'll still be blogging!! Welcome back.

  2. Good luck on your diet bet!!! I’ve thought about joining one but have never done it!
