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

Congratulations to those who won. You are healthier than you were 4 weeks ago. I was .5 of a pound away. After the week I’ve had, I really can’t be mad. The stress was overwhelming & I’ve barely slept. Please take care of yourself. Do not take your health for granted or put off making healthy changes. It WILL catch up with you. ❤

Amazing job Mary G.! Keep it up!

Sandra K.

That's awesome Mary!!! Well done!!!

My NSV is..I can no longer wear my larger shorts since they were just falling off of me!! Yayyyy!! Even a belt wasn't helping lol. I was afraid to try on shorts that I still had in my closest in the hope of being able to wear them again..and... drumrollllll... they fit & maybe also a smidge big since I don't have to undo them to take them off!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I think it has been at least 8 years but likely more like 10 years since I've worn them.
