Healthy Weight Reward
The Healthy Weight Reward encourages teammates to maintain or achieve healthier weight and waist measurements that do not create health risks or complicate existing risks.
If your weight is 20 or more pounds above the Healthy Weight zone (view the 2019 Healthy Weight Reward Zones chart), the risk of chronic conditions is greatly increased. Chronic conditions include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, heart disease, certain cancers and arthritis. The good news is just 5 – 10% weight loss (typically 15 pounds) can dramatically reduce your risk of diabetes by 40 – 60%.

Qualify for the Healthy Weight Reward in one of three ways:
- Healthy Weight
- Weight AND Healthy Waist (women 35" or less; men 40" or less)
- Weight Loss of 15 pounds
To submit your measurements:
- Get measured by an Acceptable Professional using the 2019 Healthy Weight Reward Form.
- Follow the instructions on the 2019 Healthy Weight Reward form to submit your measurements to LiveWELL:
- For the 15-pound weight loss reward calculation, the last weight recorded with LiveWELL in 2018 will be used as your 2019 start weight, unless a new start weight is submitted in 2019.
- If HWR goal is met at first weight in (Height, weight and waist if needed), submit the Healthy Weight Reward Form.
- If HWR goal is not met at first weigh in, submit the Healthy Weight Reward Form to record your initial weight. Submit a second Healthy Weight Reward form when a rewardable measurement (in one of the Reward Goal Zones) has been achieved.
