The $50 HealthyWager is a lot of money. Why is it so much?
Committing to make a change in your health is hard to do. The $50 HealthyWager is large enough to entice you to keep going.
How do I win the competition?
Is there a minimum weight lost goal?
No. Although this program is designed to help you to lose weight success will be measured by the commitment to the goal and not the number of pounds lost.
How is the final prize calculated?
The final prize is calculated by the number of participants in the HealthyWager challenge. Each participant will pay $50.
What if no one meets their goals?
To win a participant must commit to following the program at least 25 of the 30 days (83%). If none of the participants meet the goal then the pot will be moved to the following month. Participants will add another $50 to the pot which will increase the winnings for that month.
Can I get my money back if no one wins?
No. You will forfeit your money for that month. The money will stay in the pot for next month's winnings.
If no one wins can I use that $50 for the following month?
No. Each month that you participate in the program you must make another HealthyWager of $50.
Can a Winner participate in the following month's challenge.
Yes. As long as you pay your HealthyWager you may participate in as many challenges that you wish.
How do I know my payment information is secure?
HealthyWagers will be collected using the CheddarUp application. Cheddar Up is used by hundreds of thousands of organizers, sellers, groups and communities across North America. We help collect millions of dollars each month and have major partnerships with large national organizations.
Is the HealthyWager program legal?

Do I have to lose weight to win the challenge?
No. Winners are selected by commiting to their goal. There is no monthly weigh-in (other than the non-verified weigh-ins that you can optionally do on the app to keep track of your fantastic progress!).
Can I participate if I had bariatric surgery?
Yes. Winners are selected based on their commitment to the goals and not weight loss.
Can I participate if I am using weight loss pills?
Yes. But you must do so under the advice of a medical professional.
What if I have a medical event during my challenge?
We understand life happens and sometimes injuries or illnesses occur. If a medical diagnosis will cause you to miss 5 days or more then be prepared to provide formal documentation. If your documentation is approved then your HealthyWager may be moved to the next challenge.
