Introducing Healthy Wage
I know what you’re thinking, “why would anyone pay me to lose weight?” Because Healthy Wage wants to make the process of getting healthy and staying fit more fun.
Most people already know how to eat healthily and lose weight, the problem is staying motivated to stick with your plan. That’s where Healthy Wage comes in. The online platform keeps people motivated to lose weight by letting them win big cash prizes by betting on their weight loss!
First, you place your wager. You do your weigh-ins. You decide how much weight you want to lose and how long you need to do it. If you achieve the goal you set, you will receive the prize you selected from Healthy Wage. The top prize is $10,000! How’s that for motivation?
Sound too good to be true? I thought so too, but after some investigating, I can confirm that Healthy Wage is legitimate. Healthy Wage has been featured on NBC’s Today Show, and ABC’s Good Morning America.

How Healthy Wage Works
1. Start with the HealthyWage Prize Calculator. Enter the amount of weight you want to lose (10-150 pounds–minimum 10% of your starting weight), how long you need to lose it (six to 18 months), and how much you want to bet ($20-$150 per month).
The calculator will determine your prize amount–up to $10,000! You can play around with the calculator to come up with the prize and goal that you want before 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. Verify how much you weigh; once at the beginning of your program and once at the end. Don’t worry, the weigh-in is easy — you have two options:
- Download the app and follow the instructions to let one of their referees remotely witness your weigh-in [takes about two minutes].
- Make a short weigh-in video that you upload securely to their website.
You don’t need any special equipment for either method other than a smartphone and a scale. Achieve your weight-loss goal and win your prize! If you don’t hit your goal, your money goes to support Healthy Wage, including prizes for others who achieve their goals.
Healthy Wage offers challenges for companies, individuals, and groups. A company can set up an event that allows its employees to compete. However, group challenges allow anyone to sign up and enjoy the fun. Healthy Wage offers many different types of challenges.
Current Healthy Wage Challenges
To increase your chances of earning more money, you can participate in more than one challenge at a time. Here are some of the challenges that are currently available.
The Healthy Wager Challenge
This challenge is simple, choose how much weight you want to lose and how long it will take to lose it. The amount of time you select must be at least six months. Next, determine the amount you want to wager. You must contribute at least $100 over six months.
Enter your information into the prize calculator and lock in your bet. In order to win, you must meet or exceed your goal by the end of the last day of the challenge. If you achieve your goal weight early, you must maintain it. If you don’t meet your goal, you forfeit your contributions and any prize money.
The Team Challenge
You need a team of five people for this challenge. The challenge lasts three months, and each person contributes $33 per month. The best part is the huge payout – $10,000. You compete against other teams and the team with the greatest percentage of weight loss wins.
Cortney and her family won $8,000 by participating in two team challenges. She contributes her success to having a team to hold her accountable. Not to mention the big prize that was also pretty motivating! Sign up. Join a team. Lose weight. Win up to $10,000!
The Personal Jackpots change all the time so you need to check the website to see the prize amount. Each of these challenges has a set entry fee and time limit. The amount that you can win is determined by the number of people who sign up for each of these challenges. With the Personal Jackpots, your goal is to lose 6% of your body weight in the set time. All the winners split the pot. The website shows you the pot amount before you sign up.
For example, there are several personal jackpot challenges going on right now. One of the challenges has an entry fee of $33.33/mo for 3 months and the pot amount is $31,200. If you won the challenge by losing 6% of your body weight in 3 months, you would split $31,200 with the other winners.
The goal of the step challenges is to get you to increase your daily steps by 25% to win cash. The entry fee, duration of the challenge, and pot amount vary depending on the challenge you choose. New challenges are offered all the time so be sure to check the HealthyWage website for current offers and challenges.
Want to earn even more money for you and your friends? Each friend you refer will receive a $40 Healthy Wager prize boost, and you’ll get a $40 prize boost for each referral that signs up. Holy cow! That means if you tell all your Facebook friends and 50 sign up, your prize will increase by $2,000!
However, you must win your challenge to get your referral bonuses.
How Will I Get Paid
If you win, you have the option of being paid via PayPal or check. If you choose a check, you’ll be paid in one to three weeks. The PayPal option pays in five days or less.
Healthy Wage has conducted research that shows that cash rewards increase your chances of weight loss success. Also, betting on your weight loss with your own money helps increase your chances for success. So if you want to earn cash prizes, increase your motivation, and lose weight, think about trying Healthy Wage.
