How Jessica Won $1,938 for Losing 67 Pounds

Jessica Cummings after losing 67 pounds – and winning almost $2,000!

“I’ve struggled with weight my whole life and this has been the most enjoyable weight loss experience I’ve had,” exclaims Jessica Cummings, referring to her recent weight loss transformation with HealthyWage.

Once a collegiate athlete, Jessica had gained weight over the years due long work hours and studying for exams. While her career was soaring, her health was plummeting. It wasn’t until Jessica’s friend asked her to be a bridesmaid that she decided to take action against her weight gain.

After seeing an ad for HealthyWage online, Jessica signed up and bet $100 per month for 6 months — she wanted to lose 50 pounds.

She then planned out her new exercise and diet schedule. By removing carbs from her diet and focusing on protein and veggies, Jessica saw the weight begin to fall off. In addition, she returned to a dedicated workout schedule with cardio and strength training every morning and hot yoga in the evenings after work.

Jessica crushed her goal, losing a total of 67 pounds and winning $1,938.71!

Get Paid to Lose Weight — Seriously

It sounds too good to be true, we know. But after talking with these HealthyWager winners, we confirmed that 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.

Check out these other recent HealthyWager success stories:

Kayla C. bet on herself that she’d lose 50 pounds in six months. She reached her goal, winning $1,358.27!

Brooke E., who found out about HealthyWage from her coworker, lost 50 pounds in 9 months and won $1,506.96!

Find the Motivation You Need

For Meg Gallardo, it was about feeling less tired and living a more active lifestyle. When an annual checkup revealed she was over 200 pounds, she knew something had to change.

“I was just tired and unhappy. I thought ‘I don’t want to feel like this on my next birthday’”, Meg explained.

She started participating in fitness challenges, and when a fellow challenger mentioned HealthyWage, Meg became intrigued. “I thought it was a good complement,” she recalls.

Meg bet $52 per month for twelve months that she would lose 52 pounds.

When her final weigh-in confirmed she beat her goal and lost 53 pounds, she won $2,028.69!

Putting cold hard cash on the line was the push Meg needed to lose weight and get healthy.

“Winning was an incentive, but not losing $600 (her bet) was an even bigger incentive”, Meg said.

That’s an important key to this 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.

Because she controlled her own diet changes and exercise plan, Meg says she’s been successful in losing weight.

“What I liked about the HealthyWager was that I was able to customize it to myself and my goals. With other programs, there’s no customization.”

How Does HealthyWager Work?

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

1. Start with 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 (6 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. Throughout the challenge, it’s recommended that you use the HealthyWage app 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.
