I have been asked the question, does HealthyWage really work for weight loss, a lot by readers. After a lot of questions, research and digging I have found out some great information to help you decide if HealthyWage is something you want to pursue in your weight loss journey.

WHAT IS HEALTHYWAGE?
HealthyWage is a program that allows you to beat against yourself or participate in group weight loss challenges with the opportunity to win money.
You place a bet based on how much weight you plan to lose within a specific time period. If you lose the weight then you get paid based on your wager.
You have to have achieved and maintained the weight loss at the end of the challenge in order to be paid.
IS HEALTHYWAGE LEGAL?
This is actually a very legal program. The word “bet” is used but you aren't making a bet in the same way you would with traditional gambling.
You actually do have control over the outcome at all times and since it is up to you to lose the weight this isn't considered gambling.
DOES HEALTHYWAGE REALLY WORK FOR LOSE WEIGHT?
There are many things that help motivate people to do different things. Money has been a big motivator as long as it has been around.
If you are already motivated to lose weight and feel like winning extra money would help even more then this might be a good program for you to participate in.
The fear of loss is also another way to look at this program. Personally, I do NOT like losing money. If I place a bet then I will not want to have wasted that money by not losing the weight.
You need to look deep inside to answer the question of does HealthyWage really work for weight loss — for you!
HOW TO I PROVE MY WEIGHT?
You have to “weigh-in” twice during your challenge. At the very beginning to get your starting weight and then at the very end to determine if you reached your goal.
There are two ways to verify your starting and ending weight.
You can download the app and a referee will remotely witness your weigh-in. The other option is to do a short video of yourself weighing and upload it to the website.
This process is simple and only takes minutes.
DO REAL PEOPLE ACTUALLY WIN WITH HEALTHYWAGE?
I have made several members of my Weight Watchers Facebook Group have success with HealthyWage.
They already had a weight loss program in effect and decided to go ahead and bet on their success.
