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

Get ready for the final weigh in! Once the game ends tonight at midnight PST, you have until 11:59PM PST on Sep 14 to submit your final weight. If you're a winner, you'll be asked to submit photos and will get a new weigh-in word when you visit the weigh-in screens.

Submit early to make sure your photos are accepted, and remember - don't eat that cupcake until you get an email that your photos are approved! (If you don't get one, check your spam folder.) You must have an approved weigh-in in order to be declared a winner.

The game will finalize 24-36 hours after all weigh-ins have been submitted. Good luck!

  • Not too bad as a clean meal. Lettuce, tomatos, corn in light vinaigrette with black beans, two table spoons of white steamed rice and Pablo breaded chicken breast

Last chance to invite friends to join the game! Growing the pot adds to the fun for everyone. The player who gets the most friends to join each day becomes the game's Most Valuable Player, and we'll award an overall MVP once invitations can no longer be sent.
