New Year resolutions and creating new habits can be so frustrating sometimes. I know at times it has been for me. I make BIG plans and set lofty goals only to peter out along the way. This last year has been full of personal growth and development for me as I match goals with habits and build in incentives to help me stay motivated.
That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about HealthyWage.
If you are looking for a little extra motivation to help you lose weight, stick with me for a few minutes. I found some motivation that will help you (and me!) reach both your financial goals and your fitness goals! HealthyWager from HealthyWage.com is where you bet on yourself and win money for losing weight.
It almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? I thought so too. Yet, I was curious and wanted to give it a try.
Last year, I stepped on the scale and was not happy with what I saw. I realized the residual of a stressful job and transitioning to a new job had added the extra pounds up quickly. It was enough to encourage me to sign up for HealthyWage.
I used their online calculator to find the best financial prize for the amount of weight I wanted to lose. I choose to bet $40 a month for 18 months. If I reach my goal weight by October 2018, I will earn $1,631 through HealthyWage.
More than earning money, I do not like to lose money. I am also very bashful about sharing my fitness goals with others. Between HealthyWage and sharing my goal with you here, I feel motivated to stay on track and focused.
If you have a weight loss or fitness goal for 2018, tell me in the comments below! I would love to support you in this journey as we both pursue a healthier lifestyle!
I know hearing other people’s success stories often motivates and encourages me. I wanted to share success stories of those who have participated in HealthyWage and won big time!
Jennifer knew she needed to change her diet and fitness habits. It wasn’t until falling asleep at the wheel and getting in a car accident that she made the change. Jennifer revised her eating habits by eliminating alcohol and processed foods. She also started exercising on a consistent basis.
Jennifer committed to losing 100 lbs in 10 months! Losing weight became a non-negotiable goal for her, and she bet $150 each month that she would lose the weight.
“I knew if I were to put so much money into it, I would do exactly what it takes to reach my goal,” Jennifer shared.
At Jennifer’s final weigh-in, she exceeded her goal by losing 102 pounds and won $4,180.60 ($2,680 profit)! Wow! What an amazing accomplishment, Jennifer! Congratulations on reaching your weight loss goals and building a healthier lifestyle!
“I saw a news program about healthywage.com and how it was helping people lose weight by paying them for their success. I signed up as a birthday present to myself.”
Valerie was approaching her 40th birthday. She wanted to enjoy life and not feel discouraged about her health. So, she gave herself an early birthday gift and committed to losing weight.
Valerie shared how it helped to have a financial consequence to her weight lose goal. She said she would definitely (and have) recommended HealthyWage to my friends! It really does provide motivation!
Jason has struggled with weight gain his whole life. He wanted to lose weight and feel better, but nothing seemed to resonate with him. One day, Jason saw an article in the newspaper about HealthyWage and his curiosity was peaked. Would someone really pay him to lose weight?!
Jason jumped in and took on the 10% challenge and the BMI challenge. Jason did not want to lose the money he had invested and took losing weight seriously. Through the process of losing weight, Jason found he enjoyed the healthier lifestyle and diet.
Feeling better and better, Jason started hiking and participating in outdoor activities on a regular basis. He even found himself running 5ks with his wife. The financial incentive helped Jason stay on track and focus on a specific deadline. It has allowed him to enjoy his life and family more fully!
