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

Does this actually work?

Out of 895,278 DietBetters, 98.72% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 16,430,918 lbs and won $62,263,235. In other words...yes.

All results shown on DietBet are from actual users. Individual results may vary.

Don't take our word for it

I've been trying to verify my weight for a while now and the app isn't cooperating on my phone. So I got on my iPad and now the Internet is being super slow. Ugh...seems like I can't win no matter what lol.

Made it in the 11th hour by a hair (or .2 lb). With the next one I'll be a bit more consistent throughout. So happy!

Ok so this is weird. I got a notification update in the upper right in box saying my weight was verified. I never got an email and haven't heard anything from DietBet. Is this how it goes or should I have gotten another email after my weight was confirmed it was received? HHhhmmm...

Anybody out there know? Please and thanks for any help.

I did it!! but the website & app won't let me weigh in... Help! I worked so hard!

I had the same problem. I finally got it when I did it from my laptop, but I had to go through all the trouble of taking the pictures before I opened the app, then emailing them to myself, followed by downloading them to my laptop from my email before it would finally let me post them. IDK if maybe the file size of my photos was too big or what, but I can't finally worked. I hope you managed to get your weigh-in done as well. Good luck!

I also had the same problem but couldn't get it to work :(. Website kept hanging up

Please join me on my continued journey towards a healthier lifestyle and a New Me. I credit the past DietBet games that I participated in with my success in the 25 pounds lost since June. The inspirational stories, recipes, successes and failures that everyone has shared gave me to motivation to continue through the plateaus and struggles. I invite you to continue your journey with me at my first DietBet game: 2014 Can Be The New You.

I will share my journey, successes and failures with you, and invite you to do the same by posting your recipes, tips, triumphs and struggles. We will support each other in obtaining our short and long term personal goals.

Just submitted my weigh-in and waiting for verification. I am pretty happy with my results and lost more than I was actually working towards.
