111k pot and we win 45.01? 😒
Wow. I guess 95% of us were winners.

just fyi, only a select few are actually partnered with Dietbet as hosts and get money from the bets, usually really famous ones that help promote DietBet from their own platforms. The majority of hosts simply get their bet fee waived

We won 50% of our $30 buy-in - I think that’s fantastic.

  • This is how weight loss looks for me, two steps forward, one step back. That last 5 days of straight loss is rare for me. I’m happy that it’s progress. Next stop...the 150’s

Yes!!! 150 is my ultimate goal, but right now it’s 10# at a time :grin:

Jolly Botanist Leila

Right!? I see any 5-10# loss in a month a win.

Usually by tomorrow or Thursday.. people are still able to weigh-in.

Jolly Botanist Leila

The weigh out closes at midnight tonight, then it usually takes 24-36 hours for them to calculate and update everyone’s accounts that won. You can then request a payout via PayPal.

40hr fast got me through! Yesterday I was 1.5# over my goal and could not weigh out so I decided to extend my 18hr fast to 40.
5L of water, 2C bone broth and a few cups of coffee later, I came in 2.6# under my goal. 🙌

Congrats everyone, happy thanksgiving!

It can take upto 12 hours but anywhere from 10min to 3 hours is the average.

Ughhhhh I didn’t make it! I’m in the worst stall I’ve had in months and nothing is working :( I’ve been doing keto since March this year and lost about 70lbs but normally I can kick a stall like this with a fast or carb cycling... something. Nope.

me tooooo, I gain and lose the same 10lbs after the initial 50lbs i lost on keto. Ive been stalled for a freakin year. I want to cry.


Oh man! That’s the worst. Sometimes our bodies need time to catch up and heal... but it did come at an incredibly inconvenient time. Keep your head up, love... 70 lbs is AMAAAAZING. But you know that hehe!

This was my first diet bet, I reached 85% of the goal and suddenly my weight went up yesterday :( I think because of my cycles. Feeling pretty low :( and I don’t think I’ll be able to cut it by tomorrow

Has anyone ever lost their first bet and won after that?

I’ve lost more than I’ve won. You just have to stay positive. And make sure you’re drinking lots of water

Maria S.

I lost my first two but have won many since

Anyone else having issues with the app? I submitted my official weight and photos but now it’s saying to submit my unofficial weigh in.

Andrea S.

That is normal....go to the little bell at the bottom and it will tell you your weight has been submitted. It will then tell you when it's been approved :)

Jolly Botanist Leila

You haven’t been verified yet. Just hang tight. Could take up to 12hrs (usually doesnt) but check back in a few hours.

Well I hit my goal ... by .4 lbs. Bit of a squeaker! Just waiting on verification. I had surpassed my goal on Saturday and then my cycle started. Thank heavens for 2 day weigh in windows.

Even if I hadn't won, this has been my favorite Diet Bet. About 6 weeks ago, I was diagnosed with Epilepsy as an Adult. The new medication gave me some rough side effects and I was overwhelmed. My neurologist suggested Keto. She said it may help with my mental state and cognitive function. So blessed to have found @low_carb_linda on this Diet Bet. Through messages, shes been coaching me on keto, answering questions, and telling me about amazing groups online. Linda, I can't thank you enough!

If anyone is considering trying a keto lifestyle, I can't recommend her enough! I'm still working through everything and I feel better, but couldn't have done it without Linda. I truly feel I've made a friend for life!

I feel I too have made a friend for Life, Mandi!

App is glitchy. Probably due to the hundreds of people attempting to log in their weight.

Molly V

I had to log out then log back in as well.
