I love New Year Resolutions! It is a time for new beginnings. A common resolution is about money (saving it, paying down debt, or making more) and this blog deals with that quite a bit. One resolution that I do not touch upon this much is weight loss. How about combining the two!
HealthyWage provides cash incentives, social support, information resources, and goal-setting and tracking technologies to help Americans lose weight. You can win up to $1000 in their 2010 challenges. Recent studies have shown that providing a financial incentive can make weight loss three times more likely! Here is an overview of their programs:
BMI Challenge – Free to join. Corporate sponsors will pay $100 to people who lose weight. You must start with a BMI above 30 and end the year with a BMI below 25. Those numbers must be verified by a doctor. You log into the site and record your weight weekly so you can track how you are doing and stay in the contest. EVERYBODY who completes the challenge will receive $100
Supersizer – This program increases the financial gain, but you have to put some of your own money upfront. Studies have shown that this can help your motivation for losing weight! At the bottom of this post you can enter the giveaway to get into this program for free! If you pay $150 then you will get $450 for completing the challenge and if you pay $300 you will get $1000 for completing the challenge!
Top Motivator– Do you want to motivate your friends to join the BMI challenge with you? The person who motivates their friends to lose the most weight will win $1 for every pound lost! The number of motivatees that are counted is capped at 100. For example, if your top 100 motivatees lose 100 pounds each and that is the most for the contest then you will win $10000!
Weekly Weigh In – All contestants will have to weigh in each week. The website will list those contestants who have lost the most weight that week and companies may provide free products and coupons to those winners.
You can join this contest for free and you will be provided with social support, helpful information, and a financial incentive for losing weight. If you want to increase the financial incentive then it will cost you $150 (to increase your prize from $100 to $450) or $300 (to increase your prize to $1000). Or you could win a Supersizer membership here!
