To be healthy, to feel better, to have more confidence, to live a better quality of life; all amazing reasons to finally shed that excess weight and get healthy, but finding out you could get paid to lose weight is probably more incentive for some. That’s right; you can get paid to lose weight. No, we are not talking about shedding pounds and becoming a spokesperson for some national brand. No, we are not talking about getting fit and healthy and becoming some sort of weight loss coach for a company that wants you drinking shakes and posting motivational social media messages everyday (not that we mind the upbeat, positive, happy messages that are such a nice change from politics and complaints).
We are talking about a bona fide way to get paid to lose weight. It’s you paying yourself. It’s other people paying you. It is, essentially, a bet on yourself to lose weight. You are betting that you have what it takes, you have the willpower to succeed and that you will do this. It’s a bet; but it’s not an illegal gamble. It’s the type of bet in which you control the outcome and completely take control of the vehicle; your body. You set your goals, you say what you want to do, and you make it an effort to get paid to lose weight. If you lose the weight, you get paid. If you don’t lose the weight, you not only lose out on the paycheck you’re promised for losing the weight, you also lose out on the funds you contribute toward you own weight loss on this journey of betting for yourself.
Motivation is a funny thing. It comes in all shapes and sizes, and it means something different to everyone. What motivates me to stay in shape is feeling good. I have four kids and they require me to be at my best all the time. I have to be able to carry two babies upstairs and downstairs at the same time, in and out of the car to the store or into the house at the same time. I have to have the energy to get up in the mornings and get two kids ready for a day of school, two more ready to go with me to take them to school and pick them up from school, and I have to have the energy to keep up with the twins throughout the day while trying to work and keep my house and life in order.
Motivation comes in many forms. I love the motivational message I find at church on Sundays. I love that it somehow always pertains to what’s going on in my life at the moment and allows me to leave feeling fired up, ready to start a new week on a positive manner and able to focus on making positive changes in my own life. I love the positive and motivational messages I see on Pinterest and Instagram and Facebook in the mornings after I’ve already been up and working for an hour and finally take the time to sit down with a cup of coffee and my husband.
Motivation is awesome.
And there is nothing wrong with motivation in the form of money. Your paycheck motivates you, does it not? Would you get up every morning at 6 am and get ready to go spend a day at the office filing paperwork and handling customers or clients or coworkers who definitely need a spoonful of sugar to help their particular brand of medicine go down day after day if you were doing it just because you love it and enjoy that time so much? Um, no, you’re not. You’re going because your boss gives you a check, and that check helps you live (and that’s why when you love what you do and what you do is your passion, work doesn’t feel like work).
So, you can get paid to lose weight. It’s what Angie Richards recently did. She was able to lose the weight she wanted to lose and she got healthy as a result. According to her story, she was a frequent dieter. Like so many people who struggle with their weight, Angie was able to lose weight with different diets and methods, but she always found a way to put it back on. It’s a common story you hear from those who try the latest and the greatest weight loss techniques; you do the work, lose the weight and then put it right back on. The reason is that it’s virtually impossible not to put the weight back on when you stop a particular diet. It’s all about a healthy lifestyle change – moderation, enjoyment and plenty of exercise.
Angie tried to lose weight, but it wasn’t until she found out she could get paid to lose weight that she really began to focus. Events in her life led her to a place in which she realized she needed to lose some weight, and making some money off of that weight loss was just the motivation she needed at the time. She began by creating a challenge through a company called HealthyWage. The company allows users to register for the site and create a weight loss challenge all for themselves. Basically, you go on there, you tell the company that you want to lose this many pounds and you want to do it in this many weeks or months. Angie did this, choosing to lose 40 pounds in six months time. She was able to meet her goal and then some, losing a grand total of 52 pounds in her timeframe. The best part of her weight loss is that she now feels like a new person; more confident, happier and healthier. However, she’s also $1,200 wealthier as a result thanks to betting on herself.
How Does HealthyWage Work?
The site is absolutely legitimate, paying people everywhere to lose weight and work hard to meet their goals.
- Choose how much weight you want to lose between 10 and 150 pounds
- Choose how long you want to take to lose the weight between 6 and 18 months
- Choose a monthly payment amount between $20 and $150 to pay each month that your bet is active to go toward your end payment
Now you enter that information into the calculator that HealthyWage provides for you on their website, and you wait to see the amount that it generates. It all depends on how much weight you want to lose, how much time you want to take and how much you are paying in. The rest of the money comes from people who pay in each month and are unable to meet their weight loss goals. The company even touts corporations that pay them sponsorship fees to ensure that they are able to pay their clients for weight loss. These companies are looking for a healthy and unique way to promote good health, and that’s where they decide this is the right solution for their brand.
This is a company that does far more than just allow you to bet on yourself and take money from those who are unable to reach their goals; however. It’s also a company that works with you to help you lose weight. HealthyWage promotes good health by keeping you up-to-date on the latest news and advice in good health. They provide you with weight loss tips, exercise tips and other resources that make it easier to lose weight and get healthy. What you pay for each month is not just money to go back into your own pocket when you reach your goals. You pay for advice from health experts on the subject. You pay for resources that help you track your progress so that it’s there for you to see every single time you login to your account and see your progress.
