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 895,038 DietBetters, 98.71% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 16,383,366 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

Yay! Congrats to all that hit their goal! I lost but managed to lose back to starting weight after a major fall off. I'm a bit disappointed I didn't do better but my head was not in this bet. Good luck with all future weight loss endeavours :)

The timing of this one was super hard. Keep at it, you can do this, and you proved it by losing back to where you were before - just keep going from there! :-)

I'm going to miss you all! This is weird to say, but I am down too far (18+ pounds total, thanks to dietbet!) to get into another bet. I could stand to lose 5 more pounds, but it's going to take awhile since it is the last five and I am over 45years young. I'm okay where I am at. Waiting for them to post Maintenance Bet options! When they were testing it out, I still had 8-10 lbs to lose. All this blab to say thanks to everyone, and to keep up the good work! Maintenance is hard!!! (I'll probably have to join some other plan to follow until DB puts out there maintenance bet, or I will throw caution to the wind and gain it back!)

Thanks! I'm looking at it. Trying to figure it out. Will join if my brain works. PS- I had leftover Frango mints. Bad on the waistline AND the brain.


Oh! Wow. Thanks, JayP505. That was easy. Love the sticker page... I am all about short term attainable goals with visuals. Thanks for updating me on this!!!

So happy!!! This is the most I won from a DB game! The main reason I do DB is to NOT lose the money so this is awesome!!

I got my winnings, not going to lie I was a little dissatisfied in the amount with such a big pot and the fact I almost doubled what I was suppose to lose! But at least it kept me on tract through the holiday season.

I did think you got your $20 back and then the pot was split from those who didn't make it too, but hey, still got over the $20 back and it was FUN! And challenging :)


Yeah, no bonus for losing more than your goal, you either win an equal split of the pot if you made (or exceeded) your goal, or you get nothing (for not reaching goal). But winning over $16 on a $20 bet (the $36.52 total) is a higher percentage than I have gotten on many of the bets I've done. I think it was like an 82% return on the investment! Hard to beat that! :-)
