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!)
Added motivation: SparkPeople Challenges, Trophies and Points!

    I know you were struggling a bit and I hope the struggle isn't getting to be too much for you. I haven't seen any new blogs so just checking to see if I was missing something but you haven't been around. If you have gained some don't worry, if you have done it once you can do it again. Hopefully you are just too busy with your new life.
