No More Jiggly Butts!
weight loss is easier if you get paid for it
an interesting article - but the line at the end tells the true tale: [...]the studies were highly effective at producing short-term weight loss, but when the money stopped flowing, the weight began to creep back on.
it needs to be a forever-change, not a quick-fix.
but still, that's impressive! 16lbs in 4 months, definitely doable. the difference between the gettin' paid and the gettin' better fittin' jeans groups is pretty dramatic.
food for thought I suppose.
I wonder if this could be utilized at home... ie: if you're on WW, every time you go don't have to use any of the 35 extra points for the week on a day, you put some money in a jar. at the end of the week (or month) - you get that money to use as you wish. (that way it is positive reinforcement, vs. every time you eat more than your allotment for the day - or week - making a deposit...)...
