Weight Wager is the First, Real-time, Weekly, Weight Loss Bet Competition
Imagine, each morning, thousands of American weight loss competitors stepping onto
their scales as they sync their weight loss data into a national, real-time Weight Loss Leaderboard.
Competitors make a weekly bet against themselves that they will lose weight. Those that go up in weight
from Monday to Monday, pay that bet. Those that go down in weight, win a share of that money from other users.
HOW IT WORKS
Choose Your Weight Loss Game Duration
Between 4 - 24 weeks
You will join a weight loss room with other users
who are also betting that they will lose weight.
In your public Weight Room you can view your weight loss metrics and a leaderboard.
You can also create your own private
Weight Wager Weight Room for you, your
friends or coworkers.
Make a Weekly Money Bet against Yourself
That You Will Lose Weight from these amounts:
$10, $25, $50, $100, or $250
This amount will be locked in for the entire game. You weigh-in only on Mondays throughout the game. We call this 'Money Mondays'. If you gain weight each Monday, you pay the amount above that you wagered. If you lose weight from each Monday to Monday, you win a share of money with other users from those who gained weight.
If you don't weigh-in at all on Mondays, you pay your weekly wager amount.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Weight Wager?
Users bet a weekly wager amount against themselves that they will go down in weight from Monday to Monday during the duration of the game. Users then choose between 4-52 weeks that they want to compete. Users who go down in weight win a share of money from the users who went up in weight and have to pay up.
How do users get paid?
Within 1-2 weeks after the game is over, users will receive their earnings through the payment service that they registered with at the beginning of the game. Users will also pay through that same service when they gain weight after their Monday weigh-in.

WeightWager also helps you establish a clear timeline to achieve that goal.
