How This Couple Won More than $2,800 for Losing 100 Pounds


“I was miserable . . . I avoided pictures or would work to make sure I was in the back so my head was all that was visible,” recalls Kristin Westerfield, describing life before her weight loss transformation.

Less than two years ago, Kristin weighed over 278 pounds and knew it was time to get serious.

She had seen a bunch of HealthyWage winners on Good Morning America and knew money might be the ultimate motivator.  She was skeptical, but decided to give it a try.  Twelve months later, Kristin had lost 114 pounds!


What was the final motivator that helped Kristin meet her goal?  Through HealthyWage, Kristin placed a bet on her weight loss and she won big.

She bet $100 per month for those 12 months that she would lose 100 pounds.  When that final weigh-in confirmed her success, Kristin won $4,000!

Get Paid to Lose Weight — Seriously

It sounds too good to be true, I know. I thought for sure there’d be a catch, but after talking with many people who lost weight using HealthyWage and working with HealthyWage for a long time, I haven’t found one.

If you stick to your goal and lose the weight you say you’re going to, the company pays you. It’s as simple as that.  If you’re like me — a skeptic when it comes to anything I see on the Internet — you might be interested in checking out the HealthyWage review compilation that HealthyWage keeps to show that you can trust the company.

Here are a few more of my favorite recent winners:

Husband and wife Katelyn and Cort Pincock each made a six month bet.  She bet $75 per month that she she would lose 40 pounds; he bet $75 per month that he would lose 60 pounds.  Both reached their goals, landing them just shy of $3,000 (she won $1,437 and he won $1,413).


Michelle bet herself that she’d lose 100 pounds. She nailed it, lost 100.5 pounds and won $1,401.98!

Caitlin McKenna, who found out about HealthyWage through a Google search of “get paid to lose weight”, lost 63 pounds in nine months and won $3,180!

For Glenn Spoon, it was about making a serious lifestyle change to his health.

“I had already decided to lose weight and was in the process when I hit a wall. I saw HealthyWage mentioned in an article about making money online and figured it would be a great way to help re-motivate me.”

Glenn wanted to lose 100 pounds and with a cash incentive, he was prepared to work for it.

He beat his goal, losing a total of 101.6 pounds and won $2,569.26!


“HealthyWage is helping me make a difference in my life.”

What Motivates You?

For Glenn, he knew that if he kept eating and living the way he was, his life would likely be cut short.

“I honestly had given up and accepted the fact I would be dead before I was 50.  I’m now looking forward to a long healthy life.”

It’s great to be able to walk up stairs and not wheeze. I haven’t had to take diabetes or blood pressure medication in over a year,” he exclaims.

“If I can be that extra bite of inspiration or motivation that makes someone decide that it’s time to stop making excuses and start making a difference in their life, then it’s well worth it.”

Kristin agrees. Whereas money was the initial motivator, being an inspiration to others has kept Kristin on her path to healthiness.

She “loves any opportunity to ‘pass it on’ and help others reach their goals!”

“I now get asked to ‘play run’ with my nieces and love every second of the fact I can keep up!”

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. You conduct your weigh-ins. You choose your weight-loss goal and time frame.

Really, HealthyWage doesn’t make you lose weight — it just handsomely rewards you when you do.

“My HealthyWage bet was great motivation!” Kristin states.

“I started around 1200 – 1500 calories a day and have gradually increased my calories so that hopefully maintaining my weight will be a little easier,” she explains.

Here’s How It Works

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 prize and goal just right, and you’ll know your prize amount before officially placing your bet.

  1. Sign up and lay down your bet. You agree to pay the monthly amount for the duration of the challenge.
  2. 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, you’ll also log weekly weigh-ins, but not on video. These help ensure you’re losing the weight in a healthy way, not through extreme measures.

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

The fine print:  weight loss is challenging.  We don’t have a magic formula.  We offer fun and motivation, but you still have to do the work!  Individual results vary!

Seems like a scam? — here’s a mountain of evidence to show that it’s not.
