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

Congratulations to everyone that participated in this game! Whether you reached your goal or not, you are still a winner in my book! You committed and put forth the effort towards living a healthier lifestyle. If you replaced one unhealthy habit with a healthy one, or just adopted a new healthy habit, you succeeded.

Be sure to get your final weigh-ins submitted by 11:59PM PT on May 14th. If you have any trouble at all please reach out to us at support@waybetter.com.

Hello Beautiful people! Today is the last day of the game which means your final weigh-in can be submitted on Monday and Tuesday. Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your weigh-in is approved.

1) Be sure that your full body shot is head to toe.

2) Your face must be clearly visible so make sure your phone is not blocking it.

3) No accessories, hats, or shoes

4) Your weigh-in word must be written on a piece of paper and included in the scale photo.

5) Weekly accountability weigh-ins do not count towards your final weigh-in. In order to qualify for winnings, you must submit an official weigh-in during the final weigh-in period.

6) You’ll receive an email notification once your weigh-in is received and a second email letting you know that it has been approved. Please be sure to view this email just in case there are any issues that require you to resubmit.

7) Be sure to submit your weigh-in before 11:59PM PT on Tuesday, May 14th. We will not accept any late weigh-ins after the 48-hour deadline.

If you have ANY trouble at all please reach out to us at support@dietbet.com so we can help.

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on May 14 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!

Am I missing it or is this game not very active with comments?
