Welp.

Turns out I was a little less ready than I thought. Going to hit the gym today through Thursday and have my real initial weigh-in Saturday. I'm down but not out...I'll be back in a few days.

You should check out https://www.gympact.com/

You commit to working out so many days per week and earn money if you do (needs to be verifiable via runkeeper or their own app, etc). The money you earn is minimal, but if you miss a day, you have to pay $5+ which is the real incentive to not miss a day.

Looking forward to your next update.

I've heard about this and it scares me, lol. Have you used it?

It scared me too, but it makes sure I log my food (though that part I think only integrates with myfitnesspal) and get my workouts in (even if it's just a 30 minute walk -- 30 min is the threshold to get credit for exercise each day -- it integrates with runkeeper, but also has a built-in activity tracker) because no way in hell am I going to lose $5 per day for being a slacker. I've made over $30 already. Not a ton, but making $1-3 per week for something I should be doing anyway is not a bad deal.

You can schedule a pact break or even adjust your pact on a weekly basis (as long as you do it by Sunday night as every pact starts on Monday). It really sucked while I was on my honeymoon because I forgot to schedule a break and I really didn't want to have to worry about logging my food, but I was plenty active and I'm glad I ended up having to do it after all and still had a great time.

Oh damn that's awesome that you've made that much! But I don't use MFK or RK - I use Runmeter, Daily Mile, and WW, so would it work for me?

Ah gotcha. It sounds pretty cool. If I can do it with my own tracker tools I will consider it!
