Background: The Everhart’s debuted their new bodies on a trip to the Virgin Islands with family members, and used their winnings to spend an extra week there as a second honeymoon. “We played around with a few different diets and all the things you are told to do, like walking more, and nothing was working for us,” Mat Everhart, 37, told ABC News. “We were both really frustrated.” ... “This thing was sort of the catalyst for us,” Mat Everhart said. “It literally made us put our money where our mouth was and find a way to motivate yourself because there was a tangible motivation.”
Name: Christine H. from Huntington Beach, CA
Winnings: $2,896.06 for losing 60 pounds in 9 months
Background: After living in the UK for 6 years due to her husband's job, Christine and her family moved back to California in 2016. While in the UK, Christine struck up a strong friendship with several women who were also ex-pats (how they refer to themselves). Since Christine has moved back to the states, some of her fellow ex-pats have also moved, so they decided to create an annual girls trip. In need of travel funds and wanting to look and feel good when reunited with her friends, Christine signed up for a HealthyWager.
Quote: "I missed all my friends and they were planning on doing a reunion trip the first week of December. I couldn't afford it so I decided to make a [HealthyWager] bet...I had to win, I had to go to London and see my friends."
