Split the pot

10% is easier when you break it up, so each round has its own goal - and its own pot to split.
Check out the FAQ to learn more!

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

I won all the monthly rounds until this week... I have the flu and my weight is up a few pounds. Sigh. Will I still receive the money for all the monthly weigh ins? Do I need to submit a weigh in even if I don’t qualify?

  • DietBet wants you to submit a weight even if
    you didn't make goal - but you don't have to.

    I'm sorry you didn't make the final round, I didn't
    either, I had two injures this month. But hey, we
    still won a few rounds and more importantly, we
    did lose some weight!

    Lets keep at it Suzi, pressing on to the victory!

Just want to take a moment and say thank you. This was my first diet bet, although I did do one Kickstarter that completed. I exceeded my goal loss, which is great, and I found it very motivations to get on myself. I also found reading your posts so inspiring. Slim, I think how many miles you bike simply amazing. I'm sorry about your injuries and with you success. Tom, Gmomma, and the rest of you, thank you so much. I wish all of you the best in 2019 & beyond. I don't know if I'm doing another, but if I do, I hope to see some of you in the future!

Final weigh in submitted and I'm 5 pounds below goal. Thanks everyone who wouldn't let me give up. It is an amazing feeling to make goal after struggling the entire game.

Everyone ready for the final weigh in?!

I was about a pound under my goal going into Christmas and New Years and thankfully I only gained that pound back! I should hopefully meet my goal weight!

When I was trying to convince my friends to sign up with me, I was nervous I wasn’t going to be able to do it. But I knew I wanted and needed to lose the weight so why not make money doing it?! I’m so glad I signed up!

I wish you all the best of luck!

  • I hope everyone does well and meets their health and
    fitness goals. Two injures this last month have knocked
    me out of this game.

    As I have already wrote about, I'm disappointed that DietBet
    will no longer have Maintainer games.

    There are countless weight loss website programs available,
    here are a few;

    35 Fun Activities that Don’t Feel Like Exercise; https://www.eatthis.com/fun-ways-to-lose-weight/

    A diet challenge warning…

    “For some, hitting the short-term goals set within a weight loss challenge may involve less-than-ideal changes, Keatley notes.
    “Crash dieting can show results quickly so you can win the diet bet,” he says. “But often, this means the loss of fluid and muscle.” If this occurs for a sustained amount of time, it could lead to disordered eating, he adds.

    “The danger here is that when you don’t consume enough calories, your body will begin to strip fat and protein from itself to keep everything running,” Keatley notes. Eventually, that could affect organs like the heart, liver and pancreas.
    With such tactics, it’s likely you could sabotage yourself in the long-term. He notes that as weight loss slows down, so does the online challenge incentive. That’s when people tend to put the weight back on as fat.”

Slim, I am so proud of you. For everything during this DietBet including all the love and support you've given everyone.
Thank you for your chessboard message. Will be sure to stay in touch.

I’m sad that this long journey is coming to an end team. I’ve enjoyed being part of this team with you and I sincerely hope that you both lost weight and made some lasting life changes in the last six months. I hope to see you all again in here soon but hopefully you’ll only weigh 4% more than you do now.

  • Thank you for everything Tom, you were key

Tom and slim, this DietBet was an amazing experience because of you two. I was really getting discouraged because I wasn’t reaching my goals but you two kept encouraging me and helped me be successful. I wish y’all the best of luck with all future endeavors. Thanks so much. :kissing_heart:

Get ready for the final weigh-in for Round 6! This is the last weigh-in of the game! Once the game ends on Jan 9 at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Jan 11 to submit your final weight for the round. This is the last time you will be able to record your weight in the game, so please submit a weigh-in even if you have not reached your 10% goal.

Once the weigh-in period begins, you will get a new weigh-in word when you visit the game. Submit early to make sure your photos are accepted, and 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 for this round.

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

*** NO MORE MAINTAINER GAMES ***

Sorry for the long post, this is what I wrote to DietBet.

First let me start off by saying that I have appreciated and enjoyed DietBet very much. I have participated in 13 games, the current one, a transformer, I have been the “Most liked player” and “Most generous liker” for 5 of the 6 months of this game so far. I have also recommended friends who have joined DietBet games.

In others words, I have been a very involved, active and supportive member of DietBet. I had only one complaint about DietBet, until I was informed there are no more Maintainer games, now I have two.
First the original concern regarding “friending” on DietBet. A DietBet game player should be notified when someone adds them as their friend. It is frustrating to find out by accident or chance, that someone has added you as a friend! It would seem very easy to add this feature to the user control options.

Secondly, I am very disappointed to be informed that DietBet no longer has any Maintainer games available for members to participate in. I believe this will prove to be a mistake.
DietBet needs a 3 phase level diet game system that includes a "Maintainer game". If you don’t include such a game option, you will lose players to other websites that do offer such games. Frankly, if you don’t provide a Maintainer game, I for one will seek it elsewhere. Let me make it clear, I prefer to stay with DietBet, but will go where I need to, to get the game / tools necessary to meet my goals.

I am very disappointed about discontinuing the maintenance bets as well. I’ve only been involved with DietBet for about 6 months and have completed 2 Kickstarters and getting close to finishing my first Transformer with this bet. I’m halfway thru another and just started the New Year’s Transformer. DietBet has been a life changer for me. I had planned on continuing with Maintenance Bets in a year or so when I anticipate meeting my final goal. I agree that lower pay outs would not be a factor in my participation in these bets. Hopefully they will reconsider. I wasn’t even aware that there were other similar sites that do have maintenance bets. I may have to explore those.

Jeanne G.

I only know about Diet Bet. Didn’t know of others. I did a maintenance bet once and it worked for me. Not a money maker, just motivation to keep it off.
