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

Keep the momentum going! A new game has been set up for all players starting on Oct 01, 2018.

Good luck!

Thank you, Referee Beth, all the tribe and DB! So thankful to have put a halt to my upward spiral of adding more weight to my frame. I encourage all the players to double up...you get all the encouragement from 3 different games and an added bonus is extra payout. I was in this one and 2 others, the bet amount and payouts were: $25 > $32.19; $30 > $49.94; $35 > $43.53 for a net earnings of $35.66. I am in three more as would like to keep the momentum going and I need to shed more weight off my frame, have accountability and glean from others on the same journey.

Your game has now been finalized. Congratulations to the winners! You earned a 24.4% return on your money simply by investing in your own health. Don’t you wish all of your investments paid out at that rate of return?

The $43.53 in winnings will be deposited as points into your account. They can be used for a new game, or you can request a PayPal payout and treat yourself–you earned it! Payouts process within 24 hours. As promised, here are the top player titles. Drum roll, please…

Keep trying!! :)

You can always type in a lower weight to get the weigh in word because it lets you change it before you enter the final submission.

This was so hard to get down to 136.9 by today. Didn’t win anything. Never won anything in my life at all. I try and never make it.

Don't get down on yourself! It is hard -It's not the end of the world if you don't make it! You've made progress, right? Focus on that! And as Melissa said-we still have a bit of time (I didn't make My goal, either!). Can you gay a sweaty work-but in today? Eat fibrous veggies to clear out? Water, water, water! (Not sure I'll take my own advice . . .

Try adding intermittent fasting for next time

Me too. I'm weighing myself in the morning and I'm nervous.
