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

- Most Liked Comment: "Hi everybody! My name is Sheila and I'm a stay-at-home mom of 3 from Minnesota. I lost 50 pounds last year doing DietBets and following a keto diet. I went on a cruise in January and haven't really gotten back into the swing of things since. It's too easy to be busy with other things and ignore what I know I should be doing.
I'm ready to get fit and healthy again, and I know the accountability will help me follow through." by Sheila G.

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Apr 16 to submit your final weight. If you're a winner, you'll be asked to submit photos and will get a new weigh-in word when you visit the weigh-in screens.

Submit early to make sure your photos are accepted, and remember - 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.

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

Been working 14 hour days out of town all week and I don’t get home until late tonight. Not sure where my weight is, but I have been getting a good workout in every day to offset the not so good eating. Not sure if I am going to make this one😬. How is everyone else doing?


It's a nail biter! Good luck!

  • Stayed in and cooked a healthy dinner this Friday night. Barley cooked with shedded beets, mushroom and cannellini bean paprika.

I’m not paying a price to win. I pay a price when I lose. I pay a price when I eat junk or don’t exercise. I paid the price for years. Now I’m ready to work. I have energy and I’m enjoying this journey.
