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

At least I made this one. I've been so busy I forgot about the other one I was in and lost just because I forgot to weigh in. :( Sucked.

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight (Feb 4) at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Feb 6 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. Remember - don't eat that cupcake until you get an email that your photos are approved! And don't forget to check your spam folder. You must have an approved weigh-in in order to be declared a winner.
Once all weigh ins are submitted, the game will finalize 24-36 hours after that. Good luck!

I may miss this one by a pound or two. But even if I do hit my goal - I should have paid more attention to the ending date. I'm going to be out of town on vacation on the weigh-in days and away from my scale and internet. So ya'll have fun spending my money! ;) Still lost over half my goal so far, which was the real goal here anyway - the cash is just the best motivator I've ever found for myself - so I'm not counting it as a total loss, and still trying to get rid of the rest. I'll be back for the next challenge though!

Bummer, I did the same thing on a previous challenge. One of the players in that game packed her scale in her suitcase for the same reason so she could weigh in. I was doing carry on only so I couldn't do it. if you can find a scale do your weigh in! I know its hard on VACAY!


I am on vacation to my home country for a month, carried my scale with me + telling mom not to feed me fattening food :P

Birthday week-end right before the end of the challenge. Didn't set me too far back because I was good and did A LOT of exercise to compensate! Almost there guys. Hang though.
