If you need/needed to lose weight, do you think you`d be more successful if you were paid for your efforts?

No, as long as I trully want to lose weight, get back in shape and as long as I am motivated to lose weight, I can achieve it on my own.

If I were getting money to lose weight, I'd probably use that money to buy more food to reward myself for losing weight.
