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

Finally got my approved weigh out!!! 17 lbs down since 12/4/16. This was my second Dietbet ever and it was so much HARDER the second time around. Glad I won but taking a break from this style of weightloss for a bit. Super happy to have cemented the healthy habits I started in December and excited to see what happens for me on my own in 2017! See ya back for Maintenance, Dietbet! Thank you everyone for all the support, recipes, insight etc. Good luck to us all in 2017!

I didn't reach my goal in time but I stepped on the scale this morning and was two pounds below it! I am pretty stoked on myself right now.

Looks like an average of 67% met their goal...don't think the payout will be much more than our original bet...I thought end of the year games had the best payouts as another r player had said....but pounds lost I guess are worth more than the money 😄

49.9% met goal payout was $52.70! Congrats!

Julie W.

Yes better than I was expecting...I was anxious trying to do the math and was getting about $40 or so so that's much player had commented that the end of year games have the best payouts so I was hoping it would be like double our bet but anything is better than nothing and the pounds lost are a bonus!

  • Congrats to all players!
    Regardless if you made your goal or not, please be proud of yourself for getting through the holidays. With so many temptations and the cold weather, this was more than a weight challenge.

    Here's to celebrating a healthy life in 2017!!

The app often gives me a lot of trouble too ~ freezing up a lot particularly.

Tried to weigh in this morning and was not able to. The game recorded my last weigh in and said "Game Over". Does anyone know how I can contact game administrators to weigh in??

I would email them and explain your situation. They may be able to reset so you can weigh in again.


The app wouldn't let me weigh in either, I landed up going to the website following the link in the email they sent.
