I recently participated in a HealthyWage Step Challenge and was blown away by the motivation it gave me to up my game.
For the step challenge, I synced my fitbit with the healthywage dashboard to record my steps.
I couldn't believe I actually increased my step count by 25%! AND I won MONEY to do it! In fact- it's listed as one of my top Fitbit Hacks!
Leading academics have found that money enhances weight loss success, making dieters significantly more likely to lose weight. HealthyWage applies that research, offering cash weight loss challenges that model those studies and make losing weight more fun and effective.
You'd think health and vanity alone would be strong enough motivators for weight loss, but financial incentives provide additional benefits that are critical to success. Cash-based challenges are powerful tools that help you (1) commit to a specific starting point (eliminating pre-diet procrastination), and (2) avoid quitting before you've accomplished your goals.
The challenge I did was only a month long but it left me hungry for more! Especially after seeing the results of the longer weight loss challenges, like the ones below.
2018 Healthy Wage Review
“I found what worked for me,” exclaims Brooke Everhart describing life after she and her husband Mat recently lost weight together through HealthyWage. “My wife and I have lost a collective 120lbs. Holy cow!” adds Mat.
Brooke continues, “I came to a point that I was going to just stay fat and happy or really do something about it. I was tired of yo-yo dieting and fad dieting. I decided to make a real lifestyle change.” Although she was unhappy with the way she looked, she says that she “didn’t loathe it.” And that made it difficult for her to find the motivation to lose weight, until she actually put money on the line when she found HealthyWage.
Brooke and Mat set themselves a goal of losing 50 and 70 pounds, respectively, in 9 months.
Mat admits, “I do well when I have black and white goals… having something where there’s a set date and goal.” Before HealthyWage, Mat says that he “used to be always hot and sweaty and now I’m always cold. In terms of energy, it’s a huge difference. How well I sleep. I don’t think I realized how poorly I slept when I was taking in these carbs late at night and not doing physical activity where my mind was tired but my body was not. I’m truly resting now.”
Mat and Brooke decided together that they’d join HealthyWage after one of Brooke’s co-workers won money for successfully losing weight during a HealthyWager personal challenge.
Mat bet $200 per month for nine months that he would lose 72 pounds and Brooke bet $50 per month for nine months that she would lose 50 pounds.
When their final weigh-ins confirmed that they’d both reached their goals, they won a combined total of $4,458.95.
So…THAT doesn't suck!!

How Does HealthyWage Work?
If you want to get paid to lose weight, here’s how to get started:
1. Start with the HealthyWage Prize Calculator, where you’ll enter how much weight you want to lose (10-150 pounds, minimum 10% of your starting weight), how long you’ll take (6 to 18 months) and how much you want to bet ($20-$150/month).
Based on that information, the calculator will determine the amount of your prize- up to $10,000. You can change up the calculator until you get the payout and goal just right, and you’ll know your payout amount before officially placing your bet.
2. Sign up and lay down your bet. You agree to pay the monthly amount for the duration of the challenge.
3. Achieve your weight-loss goal, and win your prize!
You’ll start and end your challenge with a video-recorded weigh-in to demonstrate your weight loss. Throughout the challenge, it’s recommended that you use the HealthyWage app to log weekly weigh-ins (these are just self-reported, not verified by video). It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable and on track to meeting your goal!
4. If you don’t hit your goal, your money goes to support HealthyWage, including prizes for others who achieve their goals.
