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

  2. How we prevent cheating +

Is there a point to weighing out when you’re not even close? I was within 4lbs when the virus from hell attacked me and within a week my routine was shattered, thereby showing a 6lb gain on the scale. I’m still down a few lbs from where I began, but it’s really irritating.

You still tried your best! We're only human, and we can't help when we get sick. It's definitely irritating, I've been there. Still do your weigh out, even if it's not the results you wanted. You'll get there! ♡

Jamie Lynn

It’s totally up to you!! I’m so sorry that happened! I hope that you’re starting to feel better. Try and focus on the loss (easier said than done, I know) :purple_heart:

  • Guess I'll jump on the bandwagon 😁 Through this DietBet, I lost 11.4lbs (12.4lbs from my heaviest a few days before this started) and 6.5inches overall (January3 - February 3)! This has been such an amazing experience, and a great way to kickstart (or I should say restart 😂) my weight loss journey!

  • I feel bad for being MIA the last two weeks, I am just super busy and any spare moments I had I was out walking since we have had some really nice weather. Like today, sunny skies and almost 60 degrees this afternoon.
    Congrats to everyone here, it was close for me as I put 2 lbs back on by Saturday but managed to rid them before final weigh in.
