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

I had a terrible day, but it turned around. I was late for my class this morning, and the energy it took me to talk myself into getting up before dawn and racing to make it on time drained me. Of course I was too late and they don't allow late comers to join due to injury possibility. Cried in the car, cried at home. Then wonderful hubby talked me into putting my running shoes on and going to the gym. 1.5 hours of me time with headphones full blast and some awesome coffee later, feel much better. If this was the me before this game, I would totally let it ruin my weekend, but now, no way man!

Hang in there lovely dietbetters!!!!!!!!!!! We got it. Let these last few days be your picture perfect clean eating and workout days :) Go get'em!!!!

I keep fluctuating between 0.4 pounds under goal and 0.2 pounds over. Here's hoping weigh in falls on an under day! Good luck everyone! We are in the home stretch!
