Round Goals

The object of the game is to maintain your initial weight for 12 months, with a +2% allowance to allow for daily fluctuations (you can also lose up to 4%). To make that easier, we break the Maintainer into 12 rounds, each with its own pot, giving you regular accountability and incentives. That means if you stay within -4% to +2% of your weight all year, you can cash out 12 times!

Miss a goal for a round? Don’t worry—you can still win the next round and the Grand Prize at the end of Round 12. Half the bets are spread across the first 11 rounds, and the winners of Round 12 split the other half. The goal for each round is the same, though you MUST be between -4% and +5% of your initial weight by the end of Round 11 to be eligible to win the final pot. This is to prevent unsafe sprints at the end.

Rounds 1-10: between -4% and +2%

Round 11: between -4% and +2% to win; within -4% and +5% to qualify for Round 12 (MANDATORY)

Round 12: between -4% and +2% (MANDATORY)

How do we verify your weight?

For all official weigh-ins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight. Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting 2 photos: one of you standing on a scale in lightweight clothing (no shoes, hats, belts, watches, coats, or outerwear), and another of the scale’s readout with your weigh-in word written on a piece of paper.

What you'll need

  • A scale (preferably digital)
  • A digital camera or smartphone
  • A full-length mirror or someone to take your photo

Perfect timing all, as I am off to Mexico for five days as I won a “get fit” contest!
As some of you know I was in get-fit contest from Jan through April this year. It had darn strict requirements with a series of goals, all of which you had to complete and then a bunch of bonus categories. I met all the basic categories, and won 4 of the 10 bonus categories which put me in 2nd place. (one was highest percentage of bodyfat lost :))
I won 4 days at a high-end resort two hours outside of CanCun!
The timing is perfect as I leave this Friday – which means I am splitting the end of one maintainer and the start of another.

I consider the support I got here to be part of the many ways I have had success in maintaining...and improving! Thanks all.

I have zero association with this program and it only occurs in two cities anyways, but here was the contest for anyone curious – Seattle and Austin only.

Have a wonderful time Scott! And congratulations.
