These Guys Won Serious Money for Losing Weight

Mat Everhart’s health started to decline as his career began to rise. “I took a position where I was traveling 100-150 nights a year,” he states. “Over the course of 10 years, I went from 190 pounds to almost 280 pounds. I was just unhealthy.”  His wife, Brooke, explained that “we got in this rut where we worked crazy hours and had a young child.”

Things changed after Brooke’s coworker talked about winning a big cash prize in a weight loss challenge through HealthyWage. “I thought it was a total scam,” Mat admits, and he and Brooke literally waited to see the coworker’s winning check before either of them thought about signing up. When they realized it wasn’t a scam, the only thing left to do was sign up. His wife made her weight loss bet first, and then it was Mat’s turn.

He bet $200 per month that he would lose 72 pounds in 9 months. He exceeded his goal — losing 73.8 pounds and winning $2,952!

The money motivation helped Mat get back to the gym, where he focused on cardio and bodybuilding exercises. In addition, he began meal planning and logging his food ahead of time to avoid cheating. “I’m a very methodical type,” he explains. “You can make great decisions about what to eat tomorrow.”

Get Paid to Lose Weight – Seriously

It sounds too good to be true, we know, but we’ve done our research. If you stick to your goal and lose the weight you say you’re going to, HealthyWage pays you. It’s as simple as that.

Putting cold hard cash on the line was the push Mat needed. “I would not have seen the results I got without HealthyWage. HealthyWage offers something totally unique…it takes away the excuses.”

Check out some of the other guys that recently won big for losing weight with a HealthyWage challenge:

Glenn S. bet $40 for 10 months that he would lose 100 pounds. He beat his goal, losing a total of 102 pounds and winning $1,383!

David S. lost 66.8 pounds in 6 months and won $922.67 for successfully crushing his goal. He says that HealthyWage “helped me go down the path that I wasn’t willing to go alone. My quality of life is so much better now.”

Find the Motivation You Need

Calvin Gardner’s weight steadily crept up while in graduate school. Weighing-in at 220, he was ready to make a positive change and have more energy.

Calvin bet $300 that he’d lose 50 pounds in 6 months. He hit his goal and won $1,000!

He credits the challenge with motivating him to slash calories and hit the gym for a good workout nearly every day.

“It kind of set a deadline for me so I couldn’t procrastinate anymore,” he says. “And being a poor student, the idea that I could turn $300 to $1,000 was pretty motivating.”

That’s one of the keys to a personal HealthyWager. Just like Calvin, all participants are fully in control of the amount of effort they put in to the challenge. HealthyWage isn’t a diet program or weight-loss regimen. While you’ll benefit from joining the community, reading tips and exchanging recipes, the company’s main purpose is facilitating your bet.

You put up the collateral and choose your payout amount. You conduct your weigh-ins. You choose your weight-loss goal and time frame.

How Does HealthyWage Work?

If you want to get paid to lose weight, here’s how to get started:

1. Start at the HealthyWage Prize Calculator, where you’ll enter how much weight you want to lose (10-150 pounds, minimum 10% of your starting weight), how long you’ll take (six to 18 months) and how much you want to bet ($20-$150/month).

Based on that information, the calculator will determine your prize amount, up to $10,000.

You can play with the calculator until you get the payout and goal just right, and you’ll know your payout amount before officially placing your bet.

2. Sign up and lay down your bet. You agree to pay the monthly amount for the duration of the challenge.

3. Achieve your weight-loss goal, and win your prize!

You’ll start and end your challenge with a video-recorded weigh-in to demonstrate your weight loss (it takes about two minutes with HealthyWage’s mobile app).

Throughout the challenge, it’s recommended that you use HealthyWage to log weekly weigh-ins (these are just self-reported, not verified by video). It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable and on track to meeting your goal!

4. If you don’t hit your goal, your money goes to support HealthyWage, including prizes for others who achieve their goals.
