HealthyWager participants are encouraged to invite Lifelines to walk alongside them during their weight loss journey. Lifelines provide support, encouragement and motivation.
Part of the HealthyWager approach is using social support to be successful. Choose who you want to support you through your life-changing journey. We recommend that you invite 3 Lifelines to begin. You might want to invite the following types of people to be your Lifelines:
- Your spouse, mom, dad or best friend.
- Your brother, sister or college roommate.
- Your trainer, workout buddy or healthiest friend.
You can also invite other HealthyWager participants to act as your Lifelines.
When you are signed in to your HealthyWager dashboard, you’ll just need to navigate to the “Settings” section. From there, select “Lifelines” and then “Invite More Lifelines.” You can invite potential Lifelines via direct email, via native share (on any of the selectable apps on your phone) or by copying and pasting your invite link.
No ... but HealthyWagers with Lifelines are more likely to win. So, why wouldn't you do it?
As many as you want! We recommend having at least 5 Lifelines.
First and foremost - your Lifelines WILL NOT see your weight. That is private and confidential.
Your Lifeline WILL see:
- Your weight loss
- Your prize and wager amount
- Updates when you post a new photo
- Your start and end dates
- Updates when you reach a weight loss milestone
- Your food plan
- The time elapsed in your challenge
That's OK! Asking for support is really hard, but remember your friends and family WANT to support you on this life-changing journey! We won't ask them to do anything they wouldn't normally do IRL (In Real Life).
Lifelines help you win! Your Lifelines' support during your weight loss journey will increase your chances of winning.
We want to make it as easy as possible for your Lifelines to support you. After you invite them, they’ll just need to sign up for a FREE HealthyWage account. Then they’ll provide you with the same support they would in real life while watching you change your life and win huge cash prizes.
Lifelines can customize their notifications, but to start we will let them know when you weigh-in and post in the Chat Room.
From within the HealthyWage App, navigate to the Settings menu and select “Lifelines” and then “Received Requests.” You can also click on the Lifeline request notification.
From the web, you can accept Lifeline requests directly from the status message on your dashboard.
In HealthyWage-speak, a Lifeline is someone who supports a HealthyWager participant during their weight loss journey. Lifelines provide encouragement and motivation, just like they would in real life.
Lifelines help HealthyWagers win! Your friend is putting money on the line in a serious bid to achieve life-changing weight loss. Your service and support are important!
Give your friend the serious support that they need to achieve this life-changing goal. That’s it! Your job as a Lifeline is primarily to be there for your friend. You’ll get notified when they weigh-in and post photos so that you can cheer them on. Lifelines are REALLY important in helping HealthyWagers reach their life-changing goal.
No! It's completely free for you to sign up and support your friend during his or her journey.
