“I am strong enough to make a goal and stick to it and not give up on myself!” exclaims Whitney Cunningham describing life after her recent weight loss transformation through HealthyWage. “Emotionally, it’s given me such a boost of accomplishment.”
“Before my challenge, I felt like I was active, but now I can run around with my kids and not feel tired. I would get tired at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Now I feel energized all day.”
A year ago, Whitney weighed over 50 pounds more — and she was ready to get healthier, for herself and for her kids!
“I was addicted to sugar and food and that had to change. I had little energy and very low confidence. I have been overweight since 2005 and after having 2 kids I became even more overweight. I knew that without an extreme motivator like money, I would just lose enough to get “comfortable” which was around the 175-180 lb. range. But I really wanted to get back to a healthy weight and live a healthy lifestyle for me and for my family.”
Whitney’s friend suggested HealthyWage to her, sharing that she knew several people who had won money after successfully hitting their weight loss goals. She thought this could be the right motivation for her to make healthy changes.
Whitney bet $100 per month for nine months that she would lose 55 pounds.
When her final weigh-in confirmed she beat her goal and lost 56 pounds, she won $2,659.34!
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.

Find the Motivation You Need
For Kelsey Brown, it was about getting back to a healthy weight after her fourth baby turned one. She was done nursing and felt she no longer had an excuse to start making healthy changes.
She had heard about the concept of betting on your weight loss and Googled “weight loss challenges.” Once she came across HealthyWage, Kelsey immediately signed up and bet $50 per month for 15 months — she wanted to lose 50 pounds.
Kelsey liked the timeline that her HealthyWage challenge provided. She says, “before, I would just have an open timeline but this is more disciplined and tangible. I liked the accountability of tracking and seeing where I was and how much weight I had to lose.”
Kelsey crushed her goal, losing 55 pounds and winning $1,564.93!
“I feel healthier and I sleep better and I’m more mindful of not just what I eat, but what my whole family eats. I feel really good about the health of our family and I know that came from me feeling good about myself and feeling responsible for feeding them healthy. When I’m healthy and taking care of myself, I can make better decisions and be more responsible.”
Kelsey states that she is highly motivated by money, so the goal of winning her wager kept her on track.
Whitney agrees. “The money factor was what motivated me to jump in and do it. It was a motivator both ways – I would lose $900 if I didn’t win but I’d also leave $1,600 on the table. I hate to lose money but I love to win it!”
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, Whitney says she’s been successful in losing weight.
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.
