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

  • Great game everyone! Even if you didn't quite make your goal, you spent 4-weeks making better choices for yourself and that is pretty awesome!

    I did want to make a quick comment on the low payout for this game. It isn't unusual at all for games on or close to New Year to have lower win rates than other games you may have won before. Players are working hard to keep their resolutions and it shows! Even though the payout may be smaller, it's important to remember that more players reached their goal and that is amazing!

    I hope to see you in my new game starting Monday! One player will win a $500 wardrobe. Let's do this! http://bit.ly/2D5onFX

- Most Liked Comment: "Just want to share my non scale victory with you all! I went to the gym today! Normally I just walk/run on treadmill and do simple things like squats and sit ups at home. My husband was off work today and he takes the gym very seriously and wanted me to go with him today while the kids were at school. We have very little time to do things like that together because of the kids and their sports and house work and me working a different shift as him. But today we made time! It felt great. He pushed me to do workouts and I’m already so sore, but I’m so happy also " by Emily M.

A $3 win? I’ve been doing Diet Bets for years and this is my worst payout. I guess that means almost everyone hit their goal, which is good, but pretty surprising.

Referee Kim

Hi, Tara! It is pretty normal for games around New Year to have lower win rates. Players are working hard on those resolutions! Same theory as to why the gym is so crowded in January & February! LOL :)

Didn’t think I was going to make it but I had healthy food during the Super Bowl and have ate the best I ever have the last week.
