Split the pot

10% is easier when you break it up, so each round has its own goal - and its own pot to split.

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

Wow. I'm out. I totally got caught up with life and forgot about my DB. Doh. Forgot to weigh in. Sigh. Money, not well spent.

How does the pay pal thing work??

Rachael N.

you set up a paypal account and link it to your checking account. Then you request dietbet to payout. They transfer the money to paypal - usually within minutes its in your account. From paypal you can transfer the money to your bank account - it took about 3 days to get my $$$


Thanks , usually I don't win so never had to do this

Wheeew! That was a lot of fun, actually. :) In an (online) world where people can be so awful with their comments, this was such a welcome and refreshing change - no negativity, and so much encouragement here. I'm spending my winnings on a spa day - can't wait! Congrats to everyone for all the excess weight we've released.

I spent my earnings on a Juicer and fruits and vegetables. Tomorrow, I'm getting new running shorts! Congrats, everyone!

I treated myself to a nice Rachel Ray pan set off of QVC the other day so I'll use this to pay for it. :) And I also have a pair of Sketchers on order. :))

Need a new stove - unfortunately :( that is where mine is going.
