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

Sorry for not posting the final recipe swap yesterday. I had tons of errands to run, and I just didn't get a chance. But we can't leave out the best part of Thanksgiving: dessert!

If you can share either the recipe or a link to the recipe, that's perfect. And if you have picture to share, too, that's even better!

Here's the schedule in case you want to scroll back through previous days to see what was shared.

- Monday: Appetizers
- Tuesday: Side Dishes
- Wednesday: Potatoes and Grains
- Thursday: Breads
- Friday: Desserts

Thank you to those who have been sharing recipes! I hope you're finding it helpful whether you're hosting, or just responsible for a dish.

**November 17-18 Challenge Announcement**

Our next step challenge will take place Saturday & Sunday, November 17-18. For this challenge, there are two parts. You'll need to complete both parts in order to complete the challenge.

Part I
Drink your water! There is no verification for this part of the challenge. It is just supposed to make you more cognizant of drinking water. There are several equations you can use to calculate how much water you should drink. I will leave it up to you which one you follow, or how much you drink.

Example 1:
50% of body weight in oz equals the number of oz of water
150 lbs = 75 oz of water

Example 2:
Body weight x .67 = # of ounces of water
150 x .67 = 100.5 oz of water

Part II
You'll need to log 22,000 steps or more. That is a total of 22,000 steps combined between the two days, not 22,000 steps each day.

On Monday, there will be a Challenge Check In post. If you complete the challenge, you'll need to comment on that post.

From those who comment, I will select a winner at random. I will email this person (using the email address associated with his/her DietBet account). Please note that the direct messaging option is no longer available. ONLY this person will need to provide verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize.

This person will have 24 hours to reply with verification. If I don't hear back by then, a new winner will be chosen.

If you have any questions, please ask.

No. You only need to provide verification if your name is selected. And I email you.

@Pin, but you can post your daily steps in a separate post if you want. I always find it encouraging with members post what they are doing for the day.

**November 15 Challenge Check In**



If you successfully logged the number of steps equal to your normal daily step goal or the past seven day average plus an additional 750 steps, then comment on this post.



From those who comment, I will randomly select a winner. Only this person will be required to submit verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. Verification is as simple as a screenshot from your device's app or website. You can use any type of electronic device to track your steps - Garmin, Polar, Fitbit, Apple Watch, Health Apps on iPhone and Samsung, etc.

You will also need to provide verification of your daily goal, or your seven day average - whichever you used to calculate your step total for the challenge.

 I will notify this person via the email associated with his/her Dietbet account.

This person will then have 24 hours to reply with verification of his/her steps. If no word is received by the deadline, a new winner will be chosen.



You have until 9:30 am EST on November 17 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.

  • I haven’t completed any of the challenges so far this game because my dog has needed around the clock care and supervision due to health complications. He’s doing better now so I’m committing to rest of the challenges left. I have managed to keep my eating on point. The plan is to get to my goal weight (for this game) by Thanksgiving so I can eat what I want. Then, I’ll have a few days to get the Thanksgiving weight back off. I hope this DietBet continues because it’s one of my favorites. I’ll need to do about 2 more to get to a weight I feel comfortable with. I hope they bring back a maintainer game. Keep up the hard work everyone. It can be tough to stay motivated sometimes but the payoff is more than worth it. It we stick with healthy habits long enough it’ll become easier and just part of who we are.

He's cute and way more important than the challenges, although I love the challenges. I agree with you: hope there will be more Fitbit Dietbets with Jen after this one.

Kendra H.

Thanks for the support! I’ve had my little pooch for over 15 years and the vet says he has a lot of life left him since the cancerous tumor has been removed. I know first hand that eating is much more important than exercise for weight loss. Sometimes I actually gain weight when I exercise more because it makes me more hungry and eat more. I exercise for the energy it gives me and how it makes me feel. Walking (not on the treadmill), swimming, and Zumba are what I enjoy most. This game is perfect for my because the challenges are just the right amount for me.

First, a friendly reminder to check your emails if you comment on a Challenge Check In post. If you don't reply to the email within 24 hours from when I send it, I draw another name. I started doing that a few years ago because I was constantly sending multiple follow ups trying to get steps verified. And sometimes people would never reply. The deadline just helps from an administrative standpoint so a prize isn't outstanding for a long period of time.

On to Thanksgiving...
Continuing with our Thanksgiving healthy recipe swap. Yesterday was side dishes. Today, we will focus on yummy, but calorie-friendly potatoes and grains.

If you can share either the recipe or a link to the recipe, that's perfect. And if you have picture to share, too, that's even better!
