- Most Liked Comment: "I decided that I would share what I have been unwilling to admit or confront for the past 5 years. In 2016, after a year of marriage, my husband told me he wasn't attracted to me anymore and left me. Prior to this, I was extremely disciplined. All of my life. I worked out 6 days a week and adhered to a macro creed of 45% protein, 35% carbs and 20% fat. I maintained a BMI of 18 - 22%. My ex-husband left me when my job was particularly tough and emotional (I worked on criminal appeals for life in prison inmates) and I started losing hair. Me losing some hair was disgusting to him. The day he left me, I opened a beer. Many of them. I took a shot of tequila. Several of them. I never worked out again and my diet changed drastically. My drinking on the weekends became drinking during the week. My drinking during the week at night became drinking during the day. I was a miserable mess, spiraling out of control, thinking that no matter what I brought to the table emotionally or intellectually, if my looks weren't perfect, no one would want me. I gained weight rapidly and had an odd sense of satisfaction. No one was noticing me anymore. I felt invisible and it felt GOOD, When my XXL clothes started to be tight, I decided I needed to change a few things to just to maintain where I was. I cleaned up my diet and started walking. But I didn't give up the drinking. I would weigh in and the needle either went up or stayed the same, and I pretended it was old age because I couldn't face the fact that the alcohol was to blame. I was the epitome of a "functioning alcoholic." I gave up booze on 12/25/2021. I decided to join dietbet in an effort to hold myself accountable for my decisions and actions. Thank You for listening!" by Kennedy L.

Go to ROUNDS - ALL at the top of the app. It shows the number of winners for each round. The website is similar.
Keep in mind that people can drop out along the way, unless they paid upfront and got the free month.

Wow, what a share Kennedy. One day at a time. Great job for working on what YOU need. :purple_heart:

I meant to post this sooner, and now I don't know if the game will finalize any minute but, just in case:
Time to make some guesses as to what the payout will be!

What do you think winners will win for this last round??

Who can guess closest??

ETA: Quite a range of guesses so far! To clarify just in case, this is a number just for the Round 6 payout, not the total If you won all rounds. (For which the running total is currently $169.74)
And winner is the closest, even if it's over. 😛

So we paid $35x6 for $210? And we can subtract that from the final payout ($366.xx...)?

Monica M.

Yes Amy. Although I like to pay for all six rounds upfront so some of us who did that only paid $175

  • Hi friends! It is time for our final 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@dietbet.com. Remember that this is a pretty big game and a busy time of year! Responses/Approvals can be a little longer than usual.

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

    I'm so very proud of all of you! Regardless of the number on the scale, each of you have accomplished some amazing things and I hope you feel great about the past 6 months!

    Thank you all for being here and congratulations everyone!

James T - just checked out Coder Kids. Looks awesome! I'm an engineer looking to teach my girls some coding!

I am within 2 lbs of my goal for this game, and less than 3 lbs from being under 150. I’ve been able to get under 150 in the past, but unable to stay there. Hoping to get there over the next 3 days and join some maintainer games. They don’t pay out a lot, but I don’t want to get back up again like I was in January!

  • Just over a week to go and our amazing game is coming to an end!

    What are you going to do to make this week count?

    If you're feeling pretty confident, what are you doing to make sure you stay that way? If you still have a little bit to go, what are you doing for that extra push to the end?

    If you're looking ahead to the future, and want to continue during the rest of 2022, please join us in the Magic Transformer! Have any of you joined, or are you waiting for your payout from this game?

Im there and my high oscillating weight is my target one….my low one is 2 pounds less. Much better than at weight in time when my low was my target, I am also now at a 24.1 BMI and about to break the 140 pound barrier. I think I will get this but more than winning this I have won a healthy body!

Reeling it back in on my carb, quality, and calorie amounts. And trying to explore new routines as my new job has changed things.

  • That was close, but I made it! I drank lots of water yesterday and watched what I ate. I went to bed and said, “I will be right where I need to be in the morning.” Happy to see this email.

Made it….it was hard the last two days as I thought I was going to miss it, came back from the gym and voila, .8 less pounds than goal one. Overall 16 pounds less than January 1st, but even more importantly I am now at 24.6 BMI, aka I’m normal for the first time in 8 years, not overweight! And this is better than not losing those 17 dollars!!!!

To wait or not to wait. I am .6 pounds away from the 10%. Don’t get me wrong I am super happy as I was traveling for the last two months so this is a huge victory. The big question is whether to wait until tomorrow were I might lose those .6 or just submit already, absorb the loss and know that I will at least win the big final one, pretty sure that .6 and more is possible in one month!
