From: Uxbridge, MA
Lost: 45.0 lbs in: 12 months
“I saw a news program about healthywage.com and how it was helping people lose weight by paying them for their success.
I signed up as a birthday present to myself. I was anticipating my 40th birthday a year from then and I wanted to start off middle age as healthy as I could. I wanted to be able to enjoy middle age and not be depressed about my weight and concerned about my health.
Putting up my own money definitely helped me win. At first, I did play around and not take this weight loss seriously. I even gained weight since my first weigh-in. But I kept coming back to, “Do I really want to throw away my $300?”. So I would try to regroup and try again. After, I finally dedicated myself to the process, many times I wanted to give in to temptation. But the thought of the prize kept me focused. And, as weight started to come off, I was very excited about the process. It was not as hard as I thought it would be once I got my mind focused.
I would definitely (and have) recommended this program to my friends! For people who are competitive, it will definitely motivate them to win!”
