How Kristy R. Won $1,541 for Losing 65 Pounds

“I’ve struggled with weight my entire life,” exclaims Kristy R. Before her recent 65-pound weight loss, Kristy was a seasoned yo-yo dieter. “I was the one who’d say “’I’ll start on Monday’ or be on a new diet that would last maybe two months before I’d fall off track. It was an endless cycle of repeating that.” 

After coming across HealthyWage on Instagram, Kristy was intrigued. “I thought it was something that could really keep me accountable. Knowing I was putting my own money out there and betting on myself.”

Kristy bet $45 a month for 10 months that she would lose 60 pounds.

I loved the HealthyWage app because I could look at the [challenge] newsfeed that was encouraging and related to weight loss,” she says. “Connecting with other people through the app and newsfeed in the community was also helpful.” In addition, Kristy utilized the progress tracker to help her stay in line with reaching her goal. “Seeing myself get ahead of my expected weight was extremely encouraging.”

To lose weight, Kristy focused on food portions. “I would try not to completely cut anything out. Instead of having bread every single day, I’d have it once a week.” In addition to watching her portion sizes and tracking calories, Kristy’s exercise consisted mostly of cardio with strength training later being added further in her challenge to help combat plateaus. “At the end, those last pounds were challenging, but I buckled down and with stuck with it.”

When her final weigh-in confirmed she succeeded her goal, losing 65 pounds, Kristy won $1,541!

Get Paid to Lose Weight — Seriously

It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. If you stick to your goal and lose the weight you say you’re going to, HealthyWage pays you. Lose weight, win money — it’s as simple as that.

Find the Motivation You Need

For Kristy, it was about financial accountability. “Wanting to lose the weight and knowing that putting my own money into it would keep me accountable…plus that that huge prize.”

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 was able to customize her challenge, Kristy says she was able to achieve her weight loss goal. “I played with the prize calculator a lot because I wanted to do a bet that was going to be enough money that I wouldn’t want to lose it. I thought $45 a month was enough to make me not want to lose it but not too much where I couldn’t afford it, and then payout was incredible.”

Since shedding 65 pounds, Kristy is taking advantage of her slimmer figure. “It’s amazing to go buy more clothes and being able to find your sizes,” she exclaims, as well as enjoying “taking pictures and liking what you see.” But, as Kristy can attest to, weight loss goes deeper than the surface. “It’s improved my happiness and quality of life. When you spend everyday thinking about how you need to lose weight, it can be draining. I definitely feel like a weight has been lifted in that sense.”

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.
