My partner was in the hospital earlier and I missed the weigh in by a couple hours—I have my photos, I just didn’t get them posted. Is there a way I can post now?

I'm so sorry to hear about your partner, Nick. While I'm not sure if there is anything to be done about your weigh-in, it doesn't hurt to contact support@waybetter.com to see if there is anything they can do. I hope your partner is alright!

Ish Sarah

Oh no! I hope your partner is okay! And that you are able to get your photos in somehow

  • Hi friends! It is time for our Round 1 weigh-in!

    * Please be sure to submit your Official Weigh-In, with both your full-body photo and scale readout, and not just a Progress Weigh-In. (You have 48 hours to weigh-in and can re-use approved weigh-ins from other games within 48 hours)

    * Also, be on the lookout for a notification saying your weigh-in was received and another saying it was approved. Check Alerts or Notifications in the upper right - depending on your notification settings, you might not receive emails.

    * If you run into any trouble with your weigh-in, reach out to support@waybetter.com.

    Whether you made your goal or not, enter your weight so that you are accurately tracking each round! Even if you didn't make this goal, you still have a chance at other rounds, the game prize, and the overall game pot!

    As you see the winnings reported, remember that half of the pot each month is put toward that huge pot at the end. All winnings will be awarded at the end of the game. We're in this for the long haul!

    Thank you all for being here and congratulations everyone!

I’m away and unable to weigh in.

It appears that you can only re-use an already-verified weigh-in. So if you are trying to weigh-in for two or more things at the same time it won't work because the first one hasn't yet been verified. If you weigh-in once and wait until that verifies, then when you weigh-in for the others (within 48 hours of the time the first one was submitted), you will probably be given the option to use it.

  • If this is your first Transformer, there are somethings you should know.
    We each pay $35 per round to participate in this game, although if you pay all up front, you only have to pay for 5 rounds. Of that $35, half ($17.50) goes into each round pot, and the other half goes into the round 6 pot, making it much larger and more desirable to stay in the full game to win the big money. The pay out comes after the 6th round. The winnings might look something like this
    Round 1 - $18.43
    Round 2 - $27.13
    Round 3 - $32.62
    Round 4 - $34
    Round 5 – $32.88
    Round 6 – $168.99
    Total - $314.05
    Or maybe the real winnings you take home are several pounds lost and some new friends made along the way

  • I really really REALLY didn’t want to eat well today. It’s a gloomy and super gross humid day, my body is depleted from going too hard yesterday, and my sleep sucked. But I had my steak ready to go in the fridge and I cooked it up with some ghee and added avocado and it was really tasty!! And I’m so proud of myself for sticking with my goals when I really didn’t want to. Usually on stressful/down days is when I am at my weakest and want to cope with food so I’m really proud of myself! And I’m so happy to have a community here to share my win with.

Well done! Looks good! :blush:

Good job. I know sticking with it when mentally you just don't want to can be one of the hardest if not THE thing to do. Keep at it.

  • Well, I went with the Apple Watch instead of a Fitbit. Nervous/excited, I did NOT add the cellular ($$) and now I GOTTA finish strong in this bet! Motivational photo added!

Tip for battery life (if no one has told you yet): Apple Watches are usually set to keep the face lit up all the time. If you find your charge isn’t lasting as long as you’d like, you can set it to only light up when you raise your wrist. (As you do when checking the time.) This will almost double your battery life.

Ish Sarah

Wooo! I’m an Apple Watch user too, after years of being a fitbit user. I love it! And I love your photo. I miss Disney so much!

Geesh! I thought I posted this afternoon, but I don't see it. Anyway, I was just sharing that I had tried to donate blood today. Iron levels must be at 38, but mine was 37. UGH! I don't usually have a problem. I'm sure it's because of my reduced calorie intake these days.

I regularly donate plasma. And my iron used to be a problem. What I found to be my biggest face palm was that if you work out before you donate, even just a brisk walk, your iron will be low. And I’m not talking just before. Within 6 to 8 hours it will affect you. I was exercising before donating so I wouldn’t be too tired later in the day. But they kept rejecting me for low iron.

Another important thing, if you are trying to boost your iron, especially through supplements, your body will not absorb much iron for two hours after a heavy work out. There’s a hormone that is produced that blocks absorption. So try to make sure that dietary iron is taken in either before your work out or at least four hours after.

Ish Sarah

Wow interesting! I’m not sure what the baseline levels are for iron for giving blood but the one time I did, whatever is consider “okay” for them must have been super low for me because I ended up becoming anemic after. :joy:

Frustration post: over the last few weeks I have only lost 1 lb total. I have been working out, following my ww, etc. I have also been cleaning and organizing the house a bit, so even added calorie burn. I don't get it. I now am in the position of needing to lose 8 lbs before weigh-in. I'm so frustrated that the scale isn't moving as it has been. 😠 Any tips?

You can do this Carrie. It sounds like you're committed to a program already. Stick with it. I did a transformer last year and didn't make my first weighin, but I made the rest and still got a big payout.

Do you have a ww group that you check in with occasionally? Could you ask them what they recommend? I don't think it would be a good idea to restrict calories any further or exercise more. That's not sustainable. Your results could only be temporary and you'll go through this same struggle next month. Take care

Ish Sarah

Is it possible you may be eating something you are allergic/intolerant to? And maybe more of it with the challenge? For instance, if I eat any dairy, I GAIN weight. Even jf I only ate 1000 calories every day, if there was dairy in there I would still gain weight. It’s crazy.
