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

So proud of myself. I maintained within 2 pounds if my starting weight for 8 weeks. I don’t think I have ever done that before! Good luck everyone!

I wish you could post one place and it hit all the other games. It is too much to keep up with 3 games here and 3 games on stepbet. I think members are less communicative as well. Way more activity in the games where waybetter gets a bigger cut.

I really liked being in transformers where there was a host that kept making challenges and kept the conversation going! Much more motivating for sure!

I feel like this is the most silent game ever….are all maintainers this silent?

This is my second and the last was fairly quiet but no one has said anything this game!! I always like when people share recipes or workouts… but I haven’t shared anything either! Whoops!

I’ve done several, and it’s a little of both. Member-only games tend to be smaller (60 people vs. hundreds) and quieter (can be hard to get excited about maintenance, fewer visually impressive transformations, less need for “diet hack” advice and recipes). You’re right though, this one’s been super quiet. Definitely worth thinking about how I can contribute more.

How is everyone doing? Usually I’m struggling to keep my eating in check by this point in a maintainer… but I’m starting to find a rhythm that works foe me here which involves eating with some discipline during the week and letting go on the weekends. Seems to be a balance that is (might hopefully be?) sustainable for me in the long term. Hope you are all finding that for yourselves also!

Not great, but plenty of time left :grimacing:

I had several motivations/goals for joining the Maintainer and I now realize these goals may have been conflicting. The obvious goal was to stay at the same weight, or maybe even lose a little. The other goal was to avoid gaining too much weight during a 3 week trip to Europe to visit family we hadn’t seen in 20 months. It was impossible to continue eating as I had been (same types of food not available/relying on eating as the family ate/language barrier to communicating (I don’t speak Dutch). So I guess given the challenges I’m doing OK - I think I’ll be able to weigh in at or just under my +3% allowable weight. I’m trying to accept this as a win from the perspective of reality rather than backsliding from the perspective of my ultimate goal weight.

I can't do any of the exercises that have helped me lose weight right now, so I need to change it up this summer and also focus on just keep the weight off and staying healthy. Happy almost 4th of July!! 🎆" by Aimee G.

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Aug 26 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.
