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

Congratulations everyone who has reached their goal ☺ and for those like me who haven't, good on you for giving it your best!! I hope that this month has helped in some way whether it be motivation, breaking bad habits, being more active etc. I did get a loss which I'm so happy about but unfortunately will not be joining another diet bet as I feel it's just not right for me but I did really enjoy the experience and think it's such a great idea for those that need motivation, encouragement and accountability.

Well done everyone ☺ have a terrific 2016!!

Yikes, I messed up and attached and submitted both of the full body pics and not one of the close up! I have emailed DietBet. Does anybody know what else I can do to be able to submit the close up?

At the top of my page there is a button to 'cancel and resubmit' do you have that? Mine in on my kindle app.

This was my first DietBet, and I loved it. Lost 5.7kg (needed to lose 5.4kg), am so pleased with myself. Thanks Elora for putting this link up on your Shrinking Violet page, your are a real inspiration to us all. Looking forward to doing another game to help keep me on track.
