  1. Have a competition for maintenance only open to former diet bet winners at their goal weight.

    Since the key to dieting is maintenance for long term success - It would be nice to be able to stay with diet bet even once the weight is lost and have a forum to stay competitive keeping the weight off. I realize this might be tough to monitor - so perhaps it should be open to prior contestants who have won from diet bet? Sure would be nice to be held accountable at maintenance too.

    • Create a continuing weight loss bet

      The bet concept is working well for me, and I would like to repeat the process after this six-month period is finished. I could just start a new DietBet 10 round, but that doesn't seem like a good idea. The DietBet 10 is clearly geared to people who are just starting to lose weight and therefore will drop a lot of water weight quickly at the beginning.

      It would be nice to have a continuing weight loss bet that you could "graduate" to at the end of the six month period. I would structure it such that your starting weight…

      • Add a way to search through posts.

        This would be great to find resources people share like links, articles or particularly awesome comments or ideas, or challenges. Or specific people's posts. It's difficult to scroll through, especially in an active game, especially in an active DB10, to find a specific post you remember liking or wanting to remember.

        • I think the site needs a reconstruction - e.g. improved comment section and a section for recipes

          I think the comment section is very chaotic. Good advice, interesting stories etc. drown in "have weighed in and lost" and "ate a salad" posts. It works against an active conversation. Further, it is so difficult to find older posts - so I usually give up having some chit chat with my fellow losers.

          I would also think that an entire section should be allocated for recipes.

            We have recently added a new community section where users can join/create groups that aren’t related to games and read/write blog posts – complete with a category for “recipes”. Check it out and comment with any further suggestions.

            We’re working to improve our comment and other sections soon.

          • Separate Official weigh-in details and reminders in Email Settings

            Please separate "Official weigh-in details" and "reminders" in email settings. I understand why Official weigh-in details is required, and I want to receive emails to remind me that I need to weigh-in, or that my weigh-in was accepted.

            It is really annoying though that I receive so many "Reminder: Weigh in regularly" emails, sometimes two days in a row, sometimes twice in the same day, often the day after I just submitted an official weigh-in. I want to change my Dietbet email to my spam email instead of my regular one but I'm afraid I will miss an official weigh-in!

            • It should be easier to find / see my target weight for each round

              Today's the day to weight in at the end of round 2, but nowhere on my profile or the game page is today's target weight. Rather, it shows the target weight for the *next* round. It's almost like they did this on purpose so some people will forget their target weight and accidentally submit a weigh-in that is 0.1 pounds too high (and lose). Pretty stupid. All 6 target weights should be easily discoverable (without having to recalculate them on my own).

                We should have a fix released for this soon so that the round goals do not change in the sidebar progress module until AFTER you’ve submitted a weigh-in for that round.

                We’re also going to add the goal weights into the progress circles on the profile’s dashboard so you can view all goals there without having to hover over the graph.

                  Definitely agree. So sorry for the delay on this. It is entered to be fixed soon so that the round progrses stats and goal do not change in the sidebar until you’ve submitted your weigh-in for that round. Please comment with any further feedback so we can continue to improve.
