On the train to maintain.

If I can keep my weight within range (never beyond 119lbs) for 12 months, then I'll know I'm in it to win it.

Will take it one week at a time.

I lost 151lbs in 14months. (Highest weight was 268lbs, I'm now 117lbs).

V-52: 1 Year to Prove that I CAN! February 2012 Goals

V-52: 1 Year/12 Months/52 Weeks to Prove that I Can
April 2012

Overall Health Goal: Maintain below 54.5kg + Get Moving + Self-confidence and Kindness + Try New Things! + Let Go of Worries and Anxieties + Push Myself + Follow Through

- I am enjoying the benefits of health and I want to keep on enjoying.
- I want to be physically strong. Exercise makes me feel good and it strengthens my body.
- I want to raise my self-esteem so that I can become a productive, contributing member of society.
- I want to be good, gentle and kind person. I want people to see my good heart.
- I want to do more so I can be more.
- I want to empower myself.
- I want to be a calmer person.
- I want to step up my game.
- I want to follow through on my commitments.
- I want to lead a balanced lifestyle.

Added motivation: Maintenance Reward Fund
- Drop Php20 for every day that I’ve stayed within range
- Drop Php100 for every week that I’ve stayed within range (7 consecutive days)
- Allowing myself to just set aside a part of my savings instead of dropping money in my jar everyday.

As of March 31, 2012: I should have Php 3,300 ($76) in Maintenance Reward Fund. – I owe myself some money! I signed up for a save up mechanism as part of my payroll account. It automatically transfers part of my salary to an account that I can’t withdraw from unless via file transfer. Another plus is that it’s an interest earning account!

Added motivation: Bi-weekly reminders of maintenance target dates programmed into my IPhone calendar (with alerts!)
