$10 dollars on the 600 contract

$5k at stake).

I’ll let the two of them report back tomorrow to let us know if
disaster has been averted (for now)…

Also, Melanie is offering a $600 contract on beeminder.com/mo/weight
to get her to 160 “eventually”:
She cannot gain weight (yellow brick road is flat) and whenever she
loses weight (goes below the road), it ratchets down to lock in her
progress. As long as she’s on the road she can stay flat
indefinitely. But like all Beeminder contracts, a single day above
the road and she forfeits the money.

Anyone want to beat my bid of a dollar for that contract?

Another one. I’ll excise the rest, with the bidding and whatnot.

Yeah, Beeminder always guarantees that if you’re in the right lane
today that you won’t lose tomorrow. (The road automatically widens to
make that be true.)

So we’ve got a $10 bid from David Yang. Let’s try out this new
auction Bethany and I made:

Disaster, for me, has definetely been averted. I am a full 2 lbs down from
my weight yesterday. This makes me very concerned for Melanie’s plans
because fluctuations are pretty big, for me anyway. Does her bet mean she
literally cannot gain for a single day or she’s off her road? No, there
would still be some width in the road, right?
I hope Bee’s okay today too.
