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

All results shown on DietBet are from actual users. Individual results may vary.

Don't take our word for it

  • I had a huge weekend! I had the opportunity to go to Charlotte where I was featured for my weight loss success story at Oprah's 2020 vision tour! They showed a video with oprah narrating my story (along with that of 3 other women) and we got to meet her on stage! That's me in the red. It was such a blast getting styled and I got to keep this outfit along with 2 others (including jewelery, shoes, and BRAS since I didn't have any that fit me properly anymore).

I was a member when I signed up. My membership has lapsed. I’d like to wait until my work bonus comes in in February before renewing. Will I be disqualified from this members-only challenge? I’m guessing no, since I have signed up and paid, but I wasn’t sure if anyone else could confirm.

Natale P. is your BFF for questions like this. Also, probably, your membership will automatically renew unless you tell them not to.

How's it going in here? Did you maintain through the holidays? I'm pretty proud of myself. I kept up with my food tracking on every day except Christmas day, and I am only up half a pound.

Ready to get back to work to resume my normal routine! Too many variances with two weeks off, travel, son home from college, etc., there was no consistency! I kept up (mostly) with workouts, but food choices weren’t always the best. It’s ok though. That’s what life is.

I did well over Christmas but visited family over new year's and ended up gaining several pounds. I joined a Kickstarter and have already lost most of it since I'm sure some of it was water weight from the bad foods.

I am mot a fan of dark and dreary days. But I am very happy that we have had no snow yet!

Good point Suzanne!

Do we lose the game entirely and not get money from the pot if we lose more weight? Because I wasn’t looking to maintain what I have I need to lose weight. I don’t remember joining this game either.

Email, you can get a refund if you bow out within 7 days of joining. But if you joined by mistake they may be nice and let you out anyway.


Vdelval, I’m in the same shoes! I didn’t realize it was to maintain. I’m in this to lose weight and so close to being below.

  • Any other WW members here? I made LIFETIME today! I often use this PUGly Christmas sweater photo as my "before" shot because it's one of the few that I have that shows my whole body. I always deleted or untagged them. I thought a fitting way to celebrate this milestone was to wear the same sweater, but in a S instead of an XL!

Congrats!! I also have trouble finding a good comparison pic.

Suzanne A.

I am also a WW member. Lost almost 50 pounds following their plan. Congrats on your loss!

Well this is new. I'm below the weight range for this diet bet this morning and I need to gain a pound to stay in the game. Luckily, I'm an absolute PRO at gaining weight.

I had that for WW today! To make lifetime (free WW as long as you stay below goal) I had to stay at +/- 2 pounds for my goal at the 6 week mark. I was 4 lbs under earlier this week. Cupcakes to the rescue! Lol

Natale P.

It's +/- 3%. I'm sure I'll have access to plenty if goodies and libations over the next couple of weeks to help with my "problem." Lol

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Jan 30 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!

Congratulations on your hard work so far! Keep the momentum going by joining your next game today.

If you want to reach bigger, long-term weight loss goals (with higher payouts!), join the Transformer! On average, winners lose 24 lbs and win more than their original bet.
