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

Hi, I found out a couple of days ago that I'm expecting my second child so I have to leave this game until next winter. See you soon. :)

Yeah, that's happened to me before too. Linda's right-come along with us for the next month. We have an insane amount of people, more than 700! I think it will be a good group though. Our core group stays the same, and they're all amazing of course. :)

Linda F.

I can't believe that we have over 700! this is awesome

it takes a few days or even up to a week

Amy B.

I think they had to have had a big game finalizing the same day as ours. Or around the same time. Because I feel like it took a lot longer for them to make it final then other months.

Yeah, made weight this morning. Lotta good that does me LOL guessing that I just need to bust a move this month so I can make weight on the right day. Does this ever happened to you?

Went to weigh in this morning and the weigh in screen is locked 😩 did I miss the deadline?!

Amy B.

No, you didn't. It's possible that there's a larger game that's processing the same day. Try it again, and if nothing else email support at for the way in window closes. They Will get you all sorted out, and they'll do so quickly.

I am going to win for the FIRST time. I passed my goal by .8. I am joining the next one of course. I am going to do much better at participating more in the events and such. My extracurricular life is always so busy, but I am going to try to do better. :)

  • Hello Everyone! Question: Does anyone have this type of scale? If anyone does, do you find it reliable? I own one, but I find it giving me different weight numbers. If I weight myself now and then wait at least one or two minutes and weight myself again, it will give me a totally different number. Thank you all! :-)

Yes, I have the same scale and I lose and gain a couple ounces per second! LOL. I just have my camera ready and try and catch it at the lowest! LOL


LOL Linda F., I know that feeling. Last night I searched on Youtube on how to calibrate it. The guy actually put a 10 lb dumbbell on it and it gave him the exact weight. I don't have a one 10 lb dumbbell so I put two 5 lb dumbbells (one on each side) and at first it gave me the 10 lbs and after 1 min, I tried it again and it gave me 9.2 lbs (the same this morning). I searched for some reviews (all with the same issue as me) and I read a response from the company that said to wait at least 5 mins b4 weighing again. I'm going to give it a try and see if it's true. :-)
