If you were going to get paid to lose weight would it motivate you? And what would happen once you stopped getting paid to lose? Would you be able to maintain? I saw this TODAY SHOW article on financial incentives to lose weight  and got to thinking about it. Isn't good or better health something of a financial incentive (or at least an investment)?
I know I've heard people say that health insurance premiums should be somewhat weight based. Wouldn't that be a financial incentive or does only cold hard cash work?
