Are you still trying to hit those weight loss goals for 2016, but you’re feeling frustrated that you’ve had trouble staying on track all year long?
We told you all about HealthyWage earlier this year — a site that offers health and wellness challenges and provides cash incentives for losing weight. In addition, they offer social and expert-based support, weight tracking tools, and resources to help you achieve your weight loss goals!
We’ve continued to follow this company because of the steady stream of women who’ve lost weight with the help of HealthyWage’s fun and powerfully motivating weight loss bets, and so many women have found this program to be extremely helpful and lucrative!
Interested in getting started? Here’s how it works
HealthyWage lets you place a “bet” on your own weight loss, and they pay out prizes as high as $10,000 if you achieve your weight loss goal.
Whether you’re looking for a team-based or personal challenge, experts at HealthyWage will help ensure you get back on track with your resolution in a hurry, and actually lose the weight.
The best part is that you have to pay in each month, so you are being held accountable to your goal or else you’ll lose your money. That’s pretty motivating!
You start at the HealthyWage Prize Calculator, where you decide the terms of your bet (i.e., amount of weight you want to lose, how much money you’re willing to bet, etc.). Then, the prize calculator uses a secret formula to spit out the prize amount based on your terms.
You can play with the calculator all you want without commitment. When you’ve created the perfect bet, you sign up and get going!If you achieve your goal, you win your prize! If you lose (you’re not going to let that happen, are you?), your money goes to support HealthyWage, including prizes for people who achieve their goal. It’s as simple as that.
Anastasia won $10,000 for losing 41 pounds, and you can check out her before-and-after set above. Valerie got paid $1,000 for losing 45 pounds. The prize amount depends on several factors, including your weight at the beginning of the challenge, and the amount you are willing to bet.
Valerie explains, “Putting up my own money definitely helped me win. At first, I did not take the weight loss seriously, and many times I wanted to give in to temptation, but the thought of the prize kept me focused. And, as weight started to come off, I was very excited! It was not as hard as I thought it would be once I got my mind focused.”
