Can You Help This Reader?
A friend of mine is trying to convince me to join one of these weight loss sites with her that allows you to bet money that you will lose a minimum amount of weight in a specified amount of time. I tend to live fairly frugally but am always open to earning a few extra bucks (plus I really do need to lose a few pounds), so I am on the fence as to whether I think this could be a way for me to make a little money while dropping a few pounds, or simply a way for me to throw my money away. Have any of your readers used these types of sites? Have they found the potential of losing money a good motivation to try hard to lose weight or just an easy way to lose a few bucks? And are these sites on the up and up? Do people actually win? Thanks for any advice anyone has.

Does anyone know how to get a checking account if your credit is not very good? I have not been able to open a checking account due to credit problems in the past.
