HealthyWage participants are encouraged to invite Lifelines to walk alongside them during their weight loss journey. Lifelines provide support, encouragement and motivation.
Part of the HealthyWage approach is using social support to be successful. Choose who you want to support you through your life-changing journey. Invite other HealthyWage participants to act as your Lifelines (formerly known as “Friends”).
When you are signed in to HealthyWage, just click on the name of anyone that you’d like to connect with as a Lifeline and then click the “+ Add Lifeline” button on his or her profile.
No ... but HealthyWage participants with Lifelines are more likely to win. So, why wouldn't you do it?
As many as you want! We recommend having at least 5 Lifelines.
First and foremost - your Lifelines WILL NOT see your weight. That is private and confidential.
Your Lifeline WILL see:
- Your weight loss
- Your prize and wager amount
- Updates when you post a new photo
- Your start and end dates
- Updates when you reach a weight loss milestone
- Your food plan
- The time elapsed in your challenge
Lifelines help you win! Your Lifelines' support during your weight loss journey will increase your chances of winning.
From within the HealthyWage App, navigate to the Settings menu and select “Lifelines” and then “Received Requests.” You can also click on the Lifeline request notification.
From the web, you can accept Lifeline requests directly from the status message on your dashboard.
