How it Works

1) Calculate Your Prize

Use our calculator to enter your goal and calculate your winnings.

2) Make Your Bet

Increase your winnings by adjusting your goal weight, how much you contribute, and the time you expect it to take! Find a prize you like and make your wager!

3) Lose the Weight

Stay on track throughout the contest with weekly weigh-ins and support from other contestants.

4) Win Money!

Meet your goal and win your prize! It's that simple!

How do I weigh in?

Use our mobile app to do two verified weigh-ins -- one at the beginning of your HealthyWager, and one at the end.
Get on your own scale and our mobile app "witnesses" your weigh-in (one of our referees watches later to confirm). It's super easy and takes about two minutes.

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 the weight loss bet.

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

Last April, when I started this challenge, I was prediabetic and suffered from a lot of arthritic knee and back pain plus asthma. Now I am no longer diabetic, and 99% of the time I forget I have arthritis and asthma. I am so excited about my weight loss and thankful for HealthyWage.

HealthyWage has been the catalyst to a lifetime achievement for me. Not many people can say they lost 68 pounds in 9 months, on their own without any professional help or coaching, while working a busy full-time job, commuting in some of the worst traffic in the country, and caring for 3 children as a full-time single parent.

I am completely so much more positive than I have ever been before. I’ve always been sarcastic, but all of a sudden I find myself being non-judgemental. I’m a better friend, a better person, better version of myself all the way around.

What I liked about the individual HealthyWager was that I got to customize it to myself and my goals. With other programs, there’s no customization.

I never thought I could [lose weight] but HealthyWage gives you the parameters to help you succeed. I’m just an ordinary person who has a lot of the same issues other people have with their weight. If I can do this, other people can too!

HealthyWage was there for me every day when I didn't have the motivation to go to the gym or eat right. Best weight loss tool ever!
Kayla C. Springfield, MO

One of the main things that was really good for me [while] doing the HealthyWager was shifting the focus. The focus was on the money and not the weight loss...For my personality, it worked really well and allowed me to structure my own weight loss plan.
Brooke E. High Point, NC
50 $1,506.95
I came to a point where I was going to just stay fat and happy or really do something about it...I decided to make a real lifestyle change. I now go to the gym 5-6 times a week and eat much healthier.
Stephanie S. Lancaster, TX

Everybody Loves HealthyWage

Good Morning America host Abbie Boudreau explains how HealthyWage works and interviews HealthyWage's co-founder Jimmy Fleming on the effectiveness of financial incentives and social support for weight loss.
