Name: Kaila V.
From: Slidell, LA
Lost: 80 lbs
in: 12 months
“I was the heaviest I had ever been,” recalls Kaila V. “I was uncomfortable in my own skin to the point I felt claustrophobic.
I have two children and like most moms, you go through weight gain of course, but at a certain point, you have to say ‘this is not healthy. I’m hurting my body and I shouldn’t feel like this at my age.’
I knew I had to do something, and I was determined to make it happen.”
After coming across HealthyWage, Kaila was intrigued. “I thought, if I’m going to [lose weight], I might as well get paid to do it.”
Kaila placed a bet on her weight loss that she would lose 80 pounds in 12 months.
To lose weight, Kaila “did many different things. I’d done Noom in the past and learned a lot that helped me lose weight, so knowing what I learned, benefited me this time with weight loss.”
While her focus was nutrition with calorie counting and ensuring she was in caloric deficit, Kaila “tried to get moving whenever she could.” This included fitness programs such as Insanity and Px90, as well as riding bikes with her kids.
When Kaila’s final weigh-out confirmed she had hit her goal of 80 pounds, she won $8,640!
“I feel way more confident. I don’t feel like I have to hide behind my clothes and things like that. It’s very comforting and freeing really.”
For Kaila, investing in herself was key to weight loss success.
“HealthyWage is just a way for you to basically bet on yourself that you’re going to lose weight. You’re betting that you will, and if you do, you win a ton of money in return. I mean, it’s really a win.
“The flexibility of being able to choose how I lose the weight [was] definitely the best part of it because everybody loses weight in different ways.”
After committing to her health and losing 80 pounds, Kaila’s ready to conquer new goals.
“I’ve never felt so determined to do something in my life. Never knew I had so much willpower ever to know that I could lose 80 pounds. I mean that’s so unreal and then it makes me even more positive to get to my ultimate goal that I’ve always wanted to be but never thought I could do it. I think I could really do anything at this point.”
