Is one of you New Year’s resolutions in 2013 to lose weight? What if I was to tell you that there is a company out there that will pay you to lose weight. Seems to good to be true, right? Who would pay you to lose weight? HealthyWage.com, that’s who. My wife and I signed up last week and are super excited to participate in the challenge.
Healthy Wage has 3 different challenges:
The 10% Challenge
This is the one we decided to do. The idea is that you pay $150 to participate in the challenge to lose 10% of you body weight in 6 months. If you do, you will actually get $300 back! That is right, you actually win an additional $150 for losing weight. If that is not enough money to motivate you, you can also receive $20 for every person you refer to the challenge. By the way, if you would like to join the challenge, please let them know that I referred you and they will ask for a referral code which is 6602922871.
This challenge is free with the opportunity to win $100 in one year. To qualify, you must have a BMI of 30 or higher and get it down to 25 or less in one year. What is BMI, you ask? It is your Body Mass Index, which is a ratio of your height to your weight (Calculate your BMI). According to the Center for Disease Control, “BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.”
Match Up Challenge
Want a chance to win $10,000 for losing weight? Here is your opportunity to do just that. This challenge involves joining a 5 person team, each of you paying a mere $75 entry fee. Whichever team loses the highest percentage of weight by the end of the contest wins $10,000. Don’t think you will get first, that is OK because second place will earn $5,000 and third place will earn $3000. Not too shabby, right?
For all of the challenges you need to weigh in to verify how much you weigh. There are two options:
1. Create a private weight verification video
2. Get your weight verified at your health club, doctor or Weight Watchers meeting. If you do not belong to Weight Watchers or a health club, many health clubs are willing to help out but be sure to call to ask before going.
Is one of your goals to lose weight this year? If so, why not make some money while shedding those pounds?
