Size of waistline vs. size of paycheck

The size of your waistline could not only hamper your self-confidence, it could also affect your paycheck.

A new study in "The Journal of Applied Psychology" shows that the skinnier women are the more money they make.

But for men, it's the opposite, the more they weigh, the more they make.

Women who are 25 pounds over the average weight take home $16,000 less a year.

On the other hand, men who are 25 pounds above the average, take home $8,000 more each year.

It's time to shed those pounds to rake those dollars in!
