Hi, thanks, it is very helpful for new starters like me to understand more about this application. For now, really like this application, and keep losing weight. Thanks a lot.

Congratulations, everyone! Next week's prize will allow you to row in the comfort of your own home - it's a Water Rowing Machine Rower with an LCD Monitor! Each rower has a value of over $400, and we are giving away 10 of these! Studies have indicated rowing can work up to 85% of the body's muscular system without the joint impact of other conventional cardio exercises. All you have to do is submit a progress weigh-in between now and next Wednesday to be entered into the giveaway.

We are giving away 12 of these floating, innovative hammock chairs so be sure to submit that weigh-in! Not a member? Become one today!

If you’ve already submitted a Progress Weigh-in this week, you’re automatically entered into the drawing. Official weigh-ins for games are also automatically applied to the Progress Prize drawing for Members. If you’re not sure whether you’ve submitted, check your Membership Page — it’ll say “Entered to win” if you’re all set. Progress Weigh-ins and Progress Prizes are Member-only features that help you stay on track toward your goal and reward you for keeping yourself accountable. Members can weigh in each week to be entered into the prize drawing. If you're not a Member, you can become one at any time

I am trying to understand how membership works. I signed up initially for two months and paid $5. It looks like it will automatically renew unless I email and request that it stop. Will it be renewed for another 2 months for $5?

Referee Kristin

Hello Memphis Mary! Your 2 month DietBet membership should not renew automatically, but you can e-mail support@waybetter.com to check and be sure :-)

Hi There - I just joined dietBet for the first time. I am truly excited, and eager to weigh in, but am not able to find the word - can anyone help me find it? Thank you!

Hello, Nikegirl! You'll find the weigh-in word once you start the weigh-in process. It will be shown to you above the sample scale photo. Email support@waybetter.com if you need further assistance!


I found it and was able to submit my entry last night!
Thank you

Hi all
I just found DietBet yesterday. Looking through all the games and I am feeling a bit intimidated. Are there games that are better choices than others for newbies? I really don't know where to start.

Referee Rachel

Hi Jan! Welcome to the community. Are you looking at a Kickstarter game?

With dozens of new Kickstarter games beginning every day, it can be a bit overwhelming to zero in on which one you want. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to find your perfect weight loss game by breaking it down into a few key factors:

Start Date: Are you rarin’ to go, or do you want a few days to put on your game face? You can filter in the Game Directory to find a game with your ideal start date.

Bet Size: Do you want to bet big to win big, or do you feel more comfortable with a smaller amount on the line? Use the Bet Size filter to search for only games within your desired range.

Number of Players: Would you rather play alongside hundreds of other DietBetters, or are you looking for a game with a more intimate feel? Think about what environment would be most supportive for you.

Host: Is a celebrity host something that would motivate you? From Shaun T to Jillian Michaels to Chris & Heidi Powell, one of our inspiring hosts usually has a game starting soon.

If you still need help picking a game, please let us know what sort of game you are looking for and we can help!

Jan W.

Thanks Rachel. I will try the filter features.

So, I don't understand that "Average Player Pace" graph on the side. What is the % telling me, that I'm that percentile or that % is actually hitting their goal in that grouping? Can someone explain that graphic to me. thanks.

Referee Rachel

  • Hi! Player Pace (on desktop) or Standings (in the app) gives you the average progress of that group. Here's an example. Women weighing <171lbs are, on average, 40% of the way to their goal. Among women 171+ lbs, the players are, on average, 28% of the way to their goals. These numbers are from weight updates made by players during the game.

any one else ever enter wrong weight for weigh in? my phone decided to enter the numbers twice and I did not check when I fixed it and put in the wrong #. just got disqualified on game. :( will I be put back in it when they see I put the wrong #?

Referee Rachel

Hi Creekpride! I'm sorry to hear that happen. Usually, we catch errors when we are verifying the weigh-ins, but if we didn't catch it, you can always email us at support@ditebet.com. We can help.

Hi there, I'm new. :)

When doing a Kickstarter and working on losing 4% of my starting weight, is there an upper limit on how much I can lose during those 4 weeks? Thanks for the help!
