Healthywage Success Story: Valerie

I saw a news program about 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 them and I wanted to start off middle age as healthy as I could.  I wanted to be able to enjoy middle age and not depressed about my weight and concerned about my health.

valeriePutting 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!
