My Accountability Goal for 2011

I recently discovered the The National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) which was established in 1994.

NWCR is the largest prospective investigation of long-term successful weight loss maintenance:
  • Developed to identify and investigate the characteristics of individuals who have succeeded at long-term weight loss.
  • Tracks over 5,000 individuals who have lost significant amounts of weight and kept it off for long periods of time.
  • Detailed questionnaires and annual follow-up surveys are used to examine the behavioral and psychological characteristics of weight maintainers, as well as the strategies they use to maintaining their weight losses.
  • It's FREE.
To join the NWCR, one must meet the following requirements: Lost at least 30 pounds and maintained a weight loss of at least 30 pounds for one year or more

So, my goal is that on December 17, 2011 (my one year anniversary of hitting goal), I can sign up and join the registry at 145 lbs, having maintained my 111 lb loss for 1 year.
PS: Weigh-in tomorrow.


  1. That is a great anniversary to work towards :o)

  2. That's awesome! :) I might have to do that on my one year bandiversary!

  3. It's a great goal-- I might steal it to modify :)

  4. I have nominated you for the Stylish Blogger Award. See my blog for information and instructions on how to pay it forward.

  5. GOOD LUCK!!! I know you can do it, just from what I've read so far you have done so much, came so far, I know you can do it.
    Have a blessed afternoon.

  6. 12/31/11 will be my one year of reaching 60 pounds lost... one year anniversary. I think this is a great goal and I am looking forward to following in your footsteps, 14 days after you join I will as well :)

  7. Thank you so much for this information about the NWCR. In 2010 I lost 40 lbs for the 2nd time, so I really know how important it is to have a maintenance support group - for me more so than a weight lose group since losing weight got fun once I dropped a size or two.

  8. Thanks for metioning the Registry. I still have a while until I am at goal for 1 year, but it is something to keep in mind!
