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

My short term goals are to cut out sugary snacks and get more sleep during the week, as well as getting to the gym at least three times a week. " by Mike

  • 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, September 17th. 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 Sep 17 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!

Question - trying to make sure I understand - are you saying that we weigh in twice if we met our loss goal? We weigh in to submit officially and then we are sent a new weigh in word and we weigh and submit again? Trying to figure out a realistic expectation of how long I need to stay at this exact number because I am barely there

Referee Maureen

Hi Abi! I see that we have received your final weigh-in and it has been approved. Congratulations!

Looking back on the game, how is everyone feeling? Was it difficult to maintain a healthy plan, or did it just fall into place and become a habit?

What was the biggest change that you made?

Biggest challenge was to not snack when I saw my daughter's school snacks.

Referee Maureen

Cheryl, I'm sorry! Don't give up - keep moving forward and focus on what you want. It's not easy, and it takes time, but you can do it!

Janet, snacks are always a challenge for me. My husband eats whatever he wants and there are always tasty snacks in the house.

Can you please confirm the weigh in date? I thought it would be the 15th but it’s the 16th and 17th?

I agree - clarification is needed. What time does the word of the day change and how often does it change? What is the latest possible time to weigh in?

Referee Maureen

The game ends on Sunday and the final weigh-in period is on Sept. 16-17 which is on Monday and Tuesday. The word is used as a timestamp and is provided at the time of the submission so you want to submit your photos as soon as you receive your word. If you take your photos and don't submit them right away, the word will be different when you go back later and try to submit them.

  • Is it too quiet around here or am I talking too much? ????

When is the latest possible time to submit official weigh in?

Referee Maureen

Hi Abi! You won't be able to take your photos until the weigh-in window opens on the 16th. When you submit your photos you have to submit them with the weigh-in word that is provided at the time of the submission. The weigh-in word serves as an official timestamp (i.e., to ensure the photo was not taken at a different time). If the word is not included or not correct your weigh-in will not be accepted.

The deadline to submit your weigh-in is at 11:59 pm PT on Tuesday, Sept. 17th.
