Sharing my weight loss journey with the world

Hello from Dr. John F Murray. I am in my late 50s. I have been as fit as a world class athlete and I have been ridiculous in my life. In the past few years, I found myself going up and up in weight, mostly due to sitting as a professional (clinical and sports psychologist) and I needed to do something about it, so I found this terrific idea that I would like to now share.

My nutritionist recommended a website challenge called Healthy Wage where I could use my competitive personality, and love of contests, to kill two birds with one stone … lose weight and make money! I was able to choose the duration of the challenge, the amount I wanted to lose, and the amount of the bet, and once it was approved, I just had to get what is called a “verified weigh-in.” I got that. And when I reach my goal of losing 50 pounds in 6 months, I will get a check for $962! Of course, I had to pay to get this as nothing is free in life. I pay $75 a month for 6 months … so for a fee of $450 I will receive a profit in 6 months of $512 when I reach my weight loss goal! I have already lost 10 pounds and I am excited.

If you or anyone you know would like to do a challenge like me, I have an idea. Click the link below, and allow me to refer you, and $40 will be added to your prize if you win your own weight loss challenge. I will also get $40 added to my prize, so it is a pure win/win. Here is the link:

When you go to that link, you will have fun choosing how much you need to lose, over what period of time, at what cost and at what prize if you win. You can win a lot more by making a bigger wager than I did, or win less but put less money on the line. I think it is a fantastic motivational strategy and so I encourage you to join me.
