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

Set reasonable short and long term goals. The key to long term success and losing weight much more effectively is to actually have shorter term, achievable goals that are much easier to achieve. I lost 100 pounds not solely focusing on the hundred I wanted to lose, but by taking it 2 pounds at a time, knowing that if I just stuck to it, by simple logic I would get where I wanted. Set a goal of maybe 8 pounds down a month from now. 30 pounds by 4 months from now. Think about what occasion or event could mark that time as a milestone in order to celebrate your progress. Remind yourself of the goal somehow, with sticky notes, Google Cal, or posting here in Dietbet!

Tell me what your short term goals are right now! 💪?
