“I was the heaviest I’ve ever been,” recalls Katie W. “I remember thinking that if I ever end up being 300 pounds, I might as well be dead…I was 316 pounds.”
“We both had been trying to lose weight,” exclaims her husband Josh W. “When we found HealthyWage, we knew it was an extra motivational push. Once we signed up, there was no going back.”
Together, Katie and Josh challenged themselves to each lose 100 pounds in 18 months.
With countless diets tried and failed, they took a more basic approach this time to losing weight: counting calories and exercise. Used to eating takeout 3-4 times a week, Katie and Josh began meal prepping and cooking at home. In addition, they began walking together, which developed into consistent workout routines. Investing in an elliptical, they increased their exercise from walking 3 days a week to working out almost every day. “Being in the comfort of our home made it more convenient to workout. No preparation time nor driving to the gym.”
Katie and Josh each bet $35 a month for 18 months that they would both lose 100 pounds. When their final weigh-ins confirmed they had reached their goals, they won a combined total of $4,333!

For Adam and Rachel B., it was about getting healthy for their family. “We both had been wanting to lose weight for a couple of years now, but never committed to it,” Rachel states. “We thought [HealthyWage] would help us commit.”
Adam bet he would lose 67 pounds in 6 months, while Rachel bet she would lose 58 pounds in 6 months. They both exceeded their goals – Adam losing 71 pounds and Rachel 59, and together won $3,407!
“Not only [was] this a chance to help us win money, but also the push that you’ll lose money if you don’t win,” exclaims Rachel.
That’s the key to this challenge. HealthyWage isn’t a diet program nor weight loss regimen. While you’ll benefit from joining the community by reading tips and exchanging recipes, the company’s main purpose is to facilitate 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.
Putting cold hard cash on the line was the motivation Katie and Josh needed to lose weight and get healthy. “We [had] to lose the weight because we’re paying for it. No cheesecake was worth losing our bet.”
It was the hardest thing I’ve done,” Katie admits, “but now I feel like I know how to lose weight. I’m finally on the right track. And I wouldn’t be able to get [here] without HealthyWage.”
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.
