Name: Kathy Bechand
Kathy says: I am a 45 year old mother of 2. I know I needed to loose weight to become healthier,not only for me... but for my kids. My Mom died nearly 4 years ago... way younger than she should... and I want to be there for them alot longer than she got to be the for me... My son is 16. He has been beekeeping for a couple years and loves Dr. Who. My daughter is 13. And loves Ice Skating and Music (singing, guitar, flute, and more...). They both need to loose weight too. My son was not up for joining my journey this time but daughter was... I told her if she looses 40 lbs with me. I will get her "meet and greet" tickets for Pentatonix ... her fav group! (This made more of an impact than cash ...being 13 she is still kinda young to get how much $$ is really worth. It makes it more valuable to her...) So it will take most of my prize as decent seats are like $80. And meet and greets are nearly $300 add on....each! Will likely be over $800. But if she looses that much she deserves it too. And I will still have lost the weight that I wanted too. So I'm doing for her as much as me. (And so her mommy doesn't die young like mine did...... :-( .......) I have never been looking forward to going to gym...lol but having my little gym/diet buddy by my side makes it fun... and betting on myself gave me the drive to do it all. I am so motivated... I tell everyone! Healthy Wage is so awesome. It has helped me stay on target. And I cant wait to say I earned $1000 loosing weight!.
Name: Alex Otto
Alex Says: "Hi everyone! My name is Alexandra Otto. I gained a lot of weight when I was pregnant, and I had trouble losing it afterward. Like many moms, I put my personal goals on the back burner. When my kids turned 8 and 10, I decided it was time! I placed a Healthy Wager and won it, going from 239 to 196 pounds in 2018. The financial incentive and the community really kept me motivated. I love to talk to new people and I would love to answer any questions you have and help you get started! If I can do it, so can you."
Name: Christian Cebrián
Christian Says: "I used to be a football player and eat anything I want when I was younger and had practice everyday. Fast forward 10 years and with bad eating habits not going away as easily, I was almost 60lb up. I decided to lose the weight when my blood pressure started to be on the higher end. And my knees were taking a toll from the extra weight and past injuries. Healthywage was invaluable as a tool for motivation and keeping myself accountable through the whole process. It made me take the next step and learn how to eat better and take charge of my health. And the extra money is the icing in the cake."

I track calories on MyFitnessPal and have completed several walking challenges. I’ve also done several 6% weight loss challenges. I’m a Type 2 diabetic and tested last week at nondiabetic blood sugar levels!"
Name: Kristin Schultes
Kristin Says: "I am a very busy mom of 5 kids 8 years old and under. After gaining around 40 lbs with each pregnancy, it has proved harder to find the time and effort to lose the baby weight. I love that I found HealthyWage to give me the extra push to be able to fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans and feel like myself again! I'm also excited to use the extra cash when I win to fund my entire next year of homeschool curriculum and co-op fees!"
Name: Jennifer Downing
Jennifer Says: "I was sick and tired of being bloated and uncomfortable. I am highly motivated by cash, lol. So I searched to see if I could make money by losing weight....guess what? It was a real thing:) it took me 6 months to lose 55 pounds (my wager was for 50). I paid in $100/month for 6 months and received my winnings of $1938! Not only did I win money, but I feel so much better! I'd lost the same 20 pounds over and over. The money gave me the determination I needed to break past that point!"
Name: Holly Millard
Holly Says: "Ever since I was a child, my weight has been a constant struggle for me. Last year, I had pretty much givin up on any attempt at fitness, until I heard about HealthyWage. I'm very competitive, so I was eager to place my bet and get started. Thanks to the incentive that I got from HealthyWage, I weigh less now than I have in the last 10 years, and I feel SO good!!"
