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 sent in my weight early this morning, and I still haven’t heard back. I did get an email saying they recieved it, but it hasn’t been verified. Isn’t that weird? It’s never taken this long.

DietBet Jen

I assume you heard back, but keep in mind that January 1 is the busiest day for games on our site. And all those games and players who were in games beginning on January 1 have the same final weigh in dates. They were thousands of weigh in photos to verify. So January weigh ins generally take longer to verify than other months.

Barely made it! 0.1 lb less than goal. Too close for comfort.

If you won an Amazon gift card from one of the step challenges, they all have been ordered. And you should already see in either your Inbox or Junk mail folders in your email account.

I accidentally hit submit on the first weigh in screen thinking it would take me to the “take your pictures” screen when it had my old weight on it. It said “sorry, you didn’t win”, because it was my old weight. I went through submit again and was able to take the pictures and everything but I am worried I won’t be in the winner category. Can someone tell me how to check to see if my second weight submission over rode the first mistake one?

If you canceled and resubmitted your weigh in photos, you should be okay. When you don't reach your goal, you don't get to the screen to submit photos. So the fact that you submitted photos after you resubmitted should mean you're set.


It asked you again to confirm your weight at the end so I predict you’ll be fine.

  • For those of us who might have missed goal. At least I am 4.2lbs down
