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.

I don’t understand. It is saying I didn’t win but I met all the requirements. What am I missing here?

It won’t let me. It just keeps closing every time I try to open it.

  • Finished and verified. I cropped these, so I could see the difference over the 4 weeks! Only a little more covid weight to go!

Made it with 0.3kg under. Very pleased since I had a big stall at one point. Must look for something slightly slower after two 4% months I think. 13.5kg to go, though I’ll be pleased with anything. I tend to put on weight in autumn. I hope everyone’s done well

So if my goal is 169, can I be 169.6, 169.x, as long as it is in the 169 range?
