How do you verify the weight loss?

For all official weigh-ins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight. Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting 2 photos: one of you standing on a scale in lightweight clothing (no shoes, hats, belts, watches, coats, or outerwear), and another of the scale’s readout with your weigh-in word written on a piece of paper.

What you'll need

  • A scale (preferably digital)
  • A digital camera or smartphone
  • A full-length mirror or someone to take your photo

Hi all! I am back from vacation in time for the final weigh in. I have a few Disney pounds to lose though so I will not be reaching my goal for this game, unfortunately. :(

How did everyone do? Did you reach your goal? We have just a few more hours to accept weigh ins so be sure to get them in by 11:59 PM Pacific time!

If you are looking for another Main Event game we have just kicked one off. To ramp up for the holiday's we have a few prizes in store too. I hope you join me! https://www.dietbet.com/games/101731/activity?utm_source=referee&utm_campaign=kim

I️ forgot to write the word do I️ canceled my weight submission. I️ had to leave fir work so didn’t get a chance to redo it. I️ have 2 notifications saying that I️ have until 11-14 at 1159pm and one that says I️ have to submit it in 12 hours which will be impossible as I’m a nurse and work 12 hours shifts.

You should write dietbet and tell about your circumstance

Hi there! It looks like you were able to resubmit in time with the word. I've confirmed that it's been received and approved. You are all set! :)

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Nov 14 to submit your final weight. If you're a winner, you'll be asked to submit photos and will get a new weigh-in word when you visit the weigh-in screens.

Submit early to make sure your photos are accepted, and remember - don't eat that cupcake until you get an email that your photos are approved! (If you don't get one, check your spam folder.) You must have an approved weigh-in in order to be declared a winner.

The game will finalize 24-36 hours after all weigh-ins have been submitted. Good luck!

I don't think I'm going to make this round's goal which is frustrating cause I am making progress! I started a more intense workout and I'm losing inches but gaining muscle so the scale is staying the same.

Same here. Been lifting weights and I'm seeing a difference in my body but not much on the scale yet. Hoping I can lose just these last few pounds to win that $$ back.

Ronica C.

Yes I was doing more body weight exercise before but as l adding the weights has really slowed down the weight loss but I know it's speeding up my progress.

Congratulations on your hard work so far! Keep the momentum going by joining your next game today.

If you want to reach bigger, long-term weight loss goals (with higher payouts!), join the Transformer! On average, players lose 24 lbs and win $325. If you're near your goal weight and ready to maintain, join the Maintainer to win money for keeping the pounds off!
