A HealthyWager winner

“This is the first time I have been successful in setting my weight loss goal and achieving it! I'm a very competitive person by nature. So, if there's not a winner and a loser involved in it, I'm less inclined to participate. I knew that that was the only way that I was going to be able to accomplish my goal.”

Financial Incentives

The Power of Financial Incentives

It's really quite simple, money motivates! Leading academic research shows that money enhances weight loss success, making dieters significantly more likely to lose weight. HealthyWage uses cash-based challenges designed to help end procrastination, encourage perseverance, and harness the power of your desire to avoid losing your wager.

“I look better, I feel better, and nothing has pushed me so far out of my comfort zone and taken away ALL my excuses like HealthyWage has. I know I would have never made it if it wasn’t for HealthyWage holding me accountable.”

Too good to be true?

Too Good to Be True?

No, it's not.

HealthyWage makes money from corporate and government clients who are interested in creative solutions to weight loss. In addition, although financial incentives are great weight loss tools, people sometimes lose their weight loss bet.

The question is: will HealthyWage make money from you, or will you make money from HealthyWage?

Prize: $1,163

“There is no greater motivation than betting on you and holding yourself accountable. I’m a very competitive person and I don’t like to lose money.” In addition to her individual HealthyWager challenge, Kim joined HealthyWage Jackpot and Fast Track challenges as well “to help keep me on track and ensure that I would not get comfortable in a plateau. The [mini] challenges were key in helping me meet my overall goal because it kept me on a schedule of losing 1-2 pounds every week.”

Prize: $1,371

“During my pregnancy, I gained 50 pounds, and after having my baby, I was still up 25 pounds from pre-pregnancy. I thought breastfeeding would help me lose the weight, but it had the opposite effect. I was hungry all the time and couldn’t stop eating! After gaining more weight and getting close to my highest pregnancy weight, I decided I need to make a change. I found HealthyWage and that was the motivation I needed!”
