Make a little $ for losing weight

It won’t make you rich, but you can make a little extra money through Healthy Wage and DietBet if you lose the required amount of weight. It’s a gamble though as you do have to put up your own money which you’ll forfeit if you fail to meet the target goal. Personally, I hate losing money so the possibility was a big motivator for me. I’m sure there are scams out there that promise to make you rich for losing weight, but basically just take your money. The two I named are legit though. I’ve made a DietBet a few times and they always paid out when/if I won my bets. HealthyWage has been around for a long time and has been featured on many popular shows and in numerous newspapers. I just wanted to mention these two options since a few users here have expressed trouble with either getting the weight off before surgery or losing enough weight after the procedure. I thought this might provide some extra motivation since it did for me. If you know of other programs that pay you to lose weight please share.

Some work places offer incentives for healthy actions like exercising and losing weight so you might check to see if your employer does.  Prior to surgery I tried DietBet as well. I lost one game and won another. I had lots of fun both times.

Wow, thanks so much sharing those!  I’m trying to shed 10% of my body weight before my operation and DietBet will give me some extra motivation.  I thrive on competition and this looks fun!

I hate losing money, too, so that would definitely motivate me. I’ll check those sites out.

Our local library actually had incentives for losing weight, too, so you could check and see if your library does something similar.

Thanks a lot for sharing those websites. I’ve seen it once on TV, but I didn’t believe that this is true. I’m sure it won’t make us rich. On the other hand, it will be a great motivator for me because I don’t want to lose the money that I’ve given.
