Operation Pre-Holiday Slim Down



A new DietBet competition sponsored by The Frugal Exerciser and Femme Fitale Fit Club started today.  It is not too late to join.  The steps are really simple and this program will slim you down before the holidays. You might even win some extra cash to spend at a holiday party or for Christmas gifts.

Here are the steps:
1. Go to link and register.  The fee to join is $35
2. Take the first picture of yourself fully clothed on a scale
3. Write down the code word DietBet will give you on a plain piece of paper and place next to the scale
4. Take the second picture of your feet and your weight on the digital scale
5. Upload both pictures to your DietBet account
6. DietBet will confirm all your information and will send you a confirmation to begin posting on our DietBet game.
7. DietBet will tell you how much weight you have to lose in 28 days(4% of starting weight) and will also tell you how many calories you should consume per day
8. At the end of the 28 days, DietBet will ask you to repeat the above steps and if you lose your 4%, you will get your registration money back and you will split the pot with the other winners.

How to have a successful DietBet challenge

1. Participate online with the group and that could be posting your exercise routine to what you had to eat for the day
2. Encourage others participating in Operation Pre Holiday Slim-down
3. Remember you must reach your 4% goal so be strict with your eating plan but have one small cheat meal a week
4. Weigh yourself every three to four days to make sure you're losing.  If not, you might have to tweak your meal plans
5. Exercise but you don't have to go extra, extra hard. The emphasis should mainly be on your meal planning
6. Choose a diet program that you think will fit your lifestyle and that would lead you to success.  If you don't know what to do, follow DietBet's strategy for you
7. If you would like any advice, feel free to ask it here or send me an email and GLTA

Doing Surveys To Pay For A Gym Membership


I met a woman in the spring who wanted to join a health club but was on a very tight budget, so I suggested that she do surveys for a little side money. Last week, I ran into her again and she told me she joined a park district gym and she has been doing surveys to pay for her membership.

When I tell people I do surveys for a little side money or for gift cards, most people can't believe it.  I think they believe it is a scam or that some fraudulent company online is going to steal their personal information and use it against them. I don't find that to be the case. In fact, surveys could be a way to buy a new fitness outfit and small workout equipment or like the lady above, a way to join the health club.

Some surveys pay cash where others offer gift cards, airline and hotel points. I have redeemed gift cards, received airline miles and hotel points and plain old cash. You won't get rich but if you are on a budget, it could mean some extra cash in your bank account.  

Below are the surveys I belong to or ones I heard that are really worth joining.  Try them out, you never know when it might come in handy, like a gift card for date night with a special person. Many of the survey companies have quarterly drawings for $10,000 for participating in surveys on their site.


MySurveys USA / MySurveys Canada/ MySurveys Australia : I love them because they have a lot of rewards and cash. My only complaint with them, you should write down your survey id because their surveys crash a lot and you will need prove that you were in the middle of doing the survey.

E-rewards (USA): For me their surveys don't crash like MySurveys but they don't offer a lot of rewards or cash. I like them for airline miles and hotel points. I also get my Starbucks e-cards from their program.

Opinion Outpost: (US) (Canada) (UK) (Men USA): I do their surveys also and you can get cash, Amazon gift cards, game points and donations to your favorite charities. One great thing about them, they payout really fast.

SurveySpot (US): Another survey that pays cash and pays through rewards. Amazon vouchers require a 500 point ($5) minimum while Paypal starts at 1000 points ($10)
_____________________________________________________________________

Surveys I have heard good things about but I am not a member of:

Pinecone Research (US) (UK): A very popular survey company that pays well but is hard to get into. Right now they are looking for males or minority males between 18 and 24 years of age.

Harris Poll Online (US) (Canada) (UK): A survey program I'm thinking about joining. This one doesn't offer cash but points for gift cards. 

_____________________________________________________________________

Surveys that I have heard of but don't know that well.

Springboard America (USA): gives Americans like you the opportunity to speak up on what affects their daily lives - from products to politics. By joining Springboard, one of America's leading online research communities, you'll become eligible to receive invitations to our surveys, earn Survey Dollars and to help shape America's future.

Ipsos I-Say (USA): I-Say is looking for Moms! Take surveys and earn points. The more surveys you complete the more points you earn. The more points you earn, the more you can redeem in our online reward catalogue. We also like to chip in and offer some great contests & prizes for dedicated members. It’s a win-win!

Panel Station (Australia):A true market research panel where you can share your thoughts and opinions on various market research surveys and get chance to win cash and reward points. Sign Up is free.



If you want to know more about surveys where they rank or just survey talk, check out the Survey Police site and forum.
