FREE - BMI Challenge
The BMI Challenge is completely free and pays you $100 if you get to a healthy weight after 1-year. To qualify for the BMI Challenge you have to start with a Body Mass Index (BMI) above 30. Your BMI is a ratio of your height to your weight. Use the BMI calculator to see if you qualify http://www.presidentsc
Step 1 - Register online at healthywage.com by choosing the BMI challenge
Step 2 - Get your starting weight verified and check-in weekly
After you sign-up, you need to get one verified weigh-in. You have two options:
(1) use our private weight verification video tool, or (2) visit your doctor, health club, or one of our thousands of health club partners throughout the country. You do not have to be a member of a health club to join the challenge. After that, your weekly weigh-ins do NOT need to be verified; you just self-report your weight on the website (takes less than a minute).
Step 3 - Get to a healthy weight and get paid
Get to a BMI below 25 after exactly 1-year and win the cash prize. You'll get your ending weight verified by your doctor or health club. Payment will be made via check or paypal.

"This Sour Grapes Clause applies regardless of the reason for the sour grapes, and applies even when the Participant was disqualified by HealthyWage for a rules violation, whether the violation was caused by the Participant or by someone else, and whether the Participant agrees with HealthyWage's ruling or not. Participant covenants and agrees that he/she will not say anything disparaging about HealthyWage via any means, including electronic media (including but not limited to email, Twitter and Facebook), written media (including but not limited to letters, press and advertisements), and spoken word, for two years following the end of the challenge. This includes all disparaging remarks whether true or false. Participant understands that sour grapes can cause serious damage to HealthyWage and Participant hereby agrees to be financially responsible for such damages and to pay any and all legal costs and fees, including attorneys fees, that HealthyWage incurs in any successful action against the Participant for violating this clause, even if HealthyWage's damages are small."
Make sure you read the T&C before signing up. The "V. Sour Grapes Clause" section is just silly. You cannot say anything bad about the company on Facebook/Twitter or else they can come after you...
Quote :Participant agrees that the word “disparagement,” as used in this section, shall be construed very broadly, and that damages shall be presumed to be not less than $1,500 per disparaging remark, and possibly much, much more.
It seems that losing 10% of the body weight in 6 months now only pays about 11% (In contrast to 100% during the 10% Challenge) :-(
