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

Hi People, this is my first diet bet. I am just trying it out to see if I can be disciplined enough to loose weight. I love to eat. Unfortunately it has led me to a BMI of 35+ and a host of health problems. My doctor claims half my heath problems would go if I just lost 10kgs or 22 lbs. Thinking of signing up for a transformer too but we’ll see how this goes.

Hello everyone! This is my first dietbet. I have always gone up and down with my weight but it is very hard for me to stick to a plan. I will graduate in May with my bachelors degree in elementary education and I will start teaching next fall. My schedule is very crazy between my family life, college classes, and student teaching. My ultimate goal is to lose 65 pounds and to get healthy for my family (husband and 3 kids) and my future students.

And here we are, day 2 of the game! How did everyone do yesterday? Did you start out strong and stay on track? If you did, that's great! If you didn't, that's ok too. Don't look back, just start now.

I was off yesterday so I got a lot of steps in by doing yard work. I also drank a lot of water due to the heat and my activity level. Today, I went for a short run and have a healthy dinner planned.

Let's hear how you're doing!

Hi everyone! This is my first time using diet bet, heard about it through a friend. I am currently larger and heavier than I was the day I gave birth to my son almost 4 years ago and I'm tired of it! I'm tired of avoiding being in photos and wearing certain clothes and just overall feeling terrible about myself. My brother is getting married in November and I would love to be shed some weight before then. My ultimate goal is to lose 45 lbs and be more fit

Hello everyone. I have lost 65 pounds so far and have another 50 to go to get to goal weight. First time trying DietBet to see if it helps with the motivation. Been using stepbet since February.
