“I feel different now,” says Jennifer D, who recently shed over 50 pounds. “I made it past the barriers and feel so much better.”
After feeling overweight and exhausted from all the holiday festivities, Jennifer D. was finally ready to get serious about her weight loss when 2018 arrived. Having heard about challenges that pay you to lose weight, Jennifer searched online and stumbled upon HealthyWage. “I’m a-stay-at home mom so anything to make money is great,” she relays.
Jennifer bet $100 a month for 6 months that she would lose 50 pounds. When her final weigh-in confirmed she not only met her goal, but had surpassed it, she won $1,939!
In order to meet her goal, Jennifer decided to make her food intake a primary focus. “Your body counts calories, whether you do or not.” However, that didn’t mean removing all her favorite foods, but rather limiting them in moderation. “Instead of saying ‘I can’t have this,’ I would watch my portions.” In addition to tracking her food intake, Jennifer incorporated weight training and cardio into her workouts and immediately noticed a difference, not just on the scale, but in her appearance and mindset as well.
Asked if she’s happy she did the HealthyWager challenge, Jennifer will burst out a loud YES! “I feel more in control of what I’m eating,” states Jennifer. “This 6 month challenge allowed me the time to learn things that I hadn’t learned before because I was doing short-term diets.”
Congratulations Jennifer on your incredible transformation and success!
