This Company Paid These Women a Collective $10,495.28 to Achieve Their Health Goals
Could money motivate you to lose weight?
Honestly, you might be surprised. (The human brain is such a weird, mystical organ.)
We’ve talked to dozens of people who’ve been motivated to lose weight by making money through a wellness company called HealthyWage.
Here’s how it works:
- Enter your goal into HealthyWage’s calculator to see how much you could earn.
- Define a goal weight and the amount of time you’ll give yourself to achieve it.
- Place a bet on yourself ranging from $20 to $500 a month.
Depending on how much you have to lose, how long you give yourself to do it and how much money you put on the table, you could win up to $10,000.
Could it be?
We chatted with Teresa Suarez, who lost 68 pounds and won $2,415.28 through HealthyWage.
Sure, this sounds too good to be true, but we kept meeting HealthyWage winners — like Caitlin McKenna, who lost 61 pounds in nine months and banked $3,180. Kimie Pruessner signed up through her employer. It was hosting a team challenge. She hit her goal weight and earned $2,500.
Angela Harkins wanted to get healthy — and save enough money to build a home. She placed a bet on herself and won $2,400, which she put toward a down payment on her new home.
