Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!
Could you lose weight if money was involved? Hmmm, depends on how much money we’re talking about here! It seems there are a few websites out there offering to help you beat the bulge with a little cash incentive.
You just tell them how much weight you’re going to lose in what time frame and bet them a certain amount of money that you’ll do so. Then, they’ll take your bet, give you odds, and either pay out or collect when you do or don’t achieve your goal. Sounds almost crazy enough to work!
But guess what? There’s an 80% FAIL RATE!
However, there are people out there who succeed in a big way. Will I be one of them? That’s the plan. I can’t afford to lose even a little bit of money, so am I willing to bet a lot of it? No, I think my motivation has to come from within, not from a bank–or a bookie. So I’ll dig down deep and pull out some commitment, a little willpower, and a whole lot of heart.
A year from now, I hope to be healthier. And maybe I’ll regret not being richer at the same time. But that’s a chance I’m willing to take.
