I have a renewed sense of determination to persistently pursue my goals this year. I want to be able to say at the end of 2018, WOW, you really stayed focused and met the challenge.

For every 8 pounds I lose I will give myself a non food related reward.

1. new hairstyle
2. new workout clothes
3. new bathing suit
4. new pretty underwear
5. book a trip to somewhere fun
6. beauty makeover
7. buy a whole new wardrobe and throw out the old clothes

I have revamped my list from 2017, and now on to 2018.
