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

Round 8 has ended! Be sure to submit an official weigh-in before 11:59PM PST on Dec 3 for your weigh-in to count.

Onto Round 9! Weigh in as much as you like during this round to stay accountable and motivated. Keep yourself accountable by weighing in unofficially or by submitting progress weigh-ins through Membership. To reward players for consistency each Wednesday we’ll randomly reward an exciting progress prize to one or more players who submitted a Progress weigh-in during the 7 days leading up to the drawing. Any official weigh-in’s submitted within the 7-day Progress weigh-in window will automatically apply as the weeks Progress weigh-in. Remember, that only official, Referee-verified weigh-ins determine who wins. At the end of the round, DietBet Referees will verify every player's weight, and this weigh-in determines the round's winners. Remember, you didn't have to win the previous round to win this one! Good luck in Round 9!

Is the percentage allowed to gain or lose each month figured from the weight when we began?

It's almost time for the final weigh-in for Round 8! Once the round ends on Dec 1 at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Dec 3 to submit your final weight for the round. Even if you're not a winner, please weigh-in—tracking your progress keeps you accountable and makes you more likely to reach your long-term goal!

One the weigh-in period begins, visit the game page to get your weigh-in word and submit your photos. Submit early to make sure your photos are accepted, and hold the celebrations until you get an email letting you know your weigh-in was approved (Check your spam folder if you don't see one.) You must have an approved weigh-in in order to be declared a winner for this round.

The round will finalize 24-36 hours after all weigh-ins are submitted. Good luck!
