“I am so much more positive than I have ever been before,” says Jennifer D., describing her recent weight loss transformation.
“I’ve always been sarcastic, but all of a sudden I find myself being non-judgmental. I’m a better friend, a better person, better version of myself all the way around.”
Two years ago, Jennifer weighed over 400 pounds — and she wanted a change.
“I had to go out and buy a new scale because after months of holiday binge eating and drinking, I had maxed out my scale with a 350 lbs. limit. I was horrified after buying a scale with a 405 lb. limit only to see I had maxed that out too.”
After seeing a TV news segment about HealthyWage, Jennifer was intrigued. “The concept just seemed so foreign but also interesting.”
10 months later, on December 8, 2016, Jennifer had lost 102 pounds with HealthyWage.
What was the incentive that finally helped Jennifer push past her plateau and lose more than 100 pounds? Through HealthyWage, Jennifer placed a bet on her weight loss, and she won big.
She bet $150 per month for those 10 months that she would lose 100 pounds. When that final weigh in confirmed she had actually beat her goal and lost 102 pounds, she won $4,180.60!
Get Paid to Lose Weight — Seriously
It sounds too good to be true, I know. But I’ve been working with HealthyWage for 8 months now and I can assure it is for real — this is an awesome organization. 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.
There are so many success stories, I don’t even know who to talk about next.
Michelle O. bet herself she’d lose 75 pounds in six months. She beat her goal, lost 76 pounds and won her $1,416.71 payout!
Beth K., who discovered HealthyWage when searching for ways to lose weight on Google, lost 81 pounds in 12 months and won $1,376.82 — more than tripling her bet.
For Bekah C., it was about ending the cycle of fad diets and proving to herself she was strong enough to shed the weight she’d been so desperately trying to lose for years.
After hearing about HealthyWage on NPR, Bekah was interested but skeptical at the same time. After researching and reading reviews, she signed up and bet $50 for nine months — she wanted to lose 50 pounds.
Bekah crushed her goal, losing 54 pounds and winning $1,475.33!
“If you want to do it, you can do it. I never thought I could do it, but HealthyWage gives you the parameters to help you succeed,” Bekah says.
Find the Motivation You Need
For Bekah, it was about combining two things she needed and wanted: extra cash and weight loss.
“I was confident I could do it and hold myself accountable.”
She gradually changed her eating habits, improving her diet by cutting down on soda, sweet tea and bread and choosing healthier versions of her favorite drinks and meals. In addition, sleep became a top priority. “I noticed anytime I slept better, I lost weight and when I didn’t, I would gain. So, I made sure I was on a good sleep schedule.”
“I feel like so much more confident now. When I put clothes on, they’re not tight,” Bekah exclaims. “I’m just an ordinary person who has a lot of the same issues other people have with their weight. If I can do this, other people can too!”
Putting cold hard cash on the line was the push she needed.
Jennifer agrees. “I knew if I were to put so much money into it, I would do exactly what it takes to reach my goal,” she states.
And she’s maintained her healthy lifestyle and lost even more weight since winning her bet!
“I took whatever money I would spend eating out and put it into HealthyWage. I was basically reallocating my funds to a better investment.”
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, Jennifer says she’s been successful in losing weight.
“I did a lot of research and experimented with different diet programs to see which one was best for me.” Now, she’s on a roll. She’s taken up yoga and running. “I did a 5k and ran the entire race – I never thought that would be possible.”
How Does HealthyWager 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.
Throughout the challenge, I recommend 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.
