Round Goals

The object of the game is to maintain your initial weight for 12 months, with a +2% allowance to allow for daily fluctuations (you can also lose up to 4%). To make that easier, we break the Maintainer into 12 rounds, each with its own pot, giving you regular accountability and incentives. That means if you stay within -4% to +2% of your weight all year, you can cash out 12 times!

Miss a goal for a round? Don’t worry—you can still win the next round and the Grand Prize at the end of Round 12. Half the bets are spread across the first 11 rounds, and the winners of Round 12 split the other half. The goal for each round is the same, though you MUST be between -4% and +5% of your initial weight by the end of Round 11 to be eligible to win the final pot. This is to prevent unsafe sprints at the end.

Rounds 1-10: between -4% and +2%

Round 11: between -4% and +2% to win; within -4% and +5% to qualify for Round 12 (MANDATORY)

Round 12: between -4% and +2% (MANDATORY)

How do we verify your weight?

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 Ref Maureen,
I just got a notification that I did not win round 7, even though I weighed in 2 days ago under goal & it was accepted. Can you please let me know why whenever you get a chance?Thanks in advance. I am about to do my next weigh in, hopefully that doesn't mess up the 1 I did 2 days ago. Thanks!!

Referee Maureen

Hi Mermad! I just checked and see that this has been resolved. Please check your email. :)

I didn’t make the weight this month. I posted about struggling with nutrition and I hit a low point this past week and self sabotaged. So missing a weigh in spurs me to action. I decided to join weight watchers to get myself back where I want to be. I have talked to a lot of people who love the new program with point free foods. Also 3 coworkers are doing this so I feel that will help a lot. I am going to make the weight next month. Watch me.

I have always thought Weight Watchers was a good program. It doesn’t ban foods, which I think is spot on! Good luck this month. Sounds like you have some great support with coworkers.

Rosa M.

YAY!!! I am a lifetime and I LOVE the program!!! You can do this!!! It is so much easier when you have people supporting you!!!
