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

  • 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, Dec 31. 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@waybetter.com so we can help.

It's been so quiet around here! Did everyone get through the Holiday without falling off track?

Went skiing for week so burned a lot of calories to offset some of my bad choices. One pound to go so have to be extra good today!

Referee Maureen

Oh, how fun! That will definitely burn some calories!

  • Merry Christmas! I got up early and got a run in before anyone else was up so I'm off to a good start. What healthy choice did you make today?

  • Merry Christmas Eve! Remember, don't overindulge on the sweets and yummy treats! Take a little bit - just enough to enjoy. And make time to exercise! You've worked too hard all month to let it go in the final week.

  • Who has some fun Christmas sweater/attire pictures? These are my elf shoes that I've been wearing everywhere. They have bells on them too so people can hear me coming. HA!

- Most Liked Comment: "Sorry I didn't really introduce myself. My name is Erika and I'm fifty years old. My goals at this point are to meet the four percent challenge at least and to work out at least three times per week. In addition I will be doing some intermittent fasting and also do a little time with what is called The Virgin Diet. It's actually an Elimination Diet, but I lost more weight on it then even the Adkins when I tried it. It is however a bit difficult to stick with for long periods." by Erika L.

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Dec 31 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!
