Your bullet journal is an excellent tool to help you with your weight loss goals. There are loads of ways to use your bullet journal to track and motivate your weight loss:
Weight loss tracker: An easy graphic is a great way to track your weight loss. Color in each block for every pound lost. You’ll be surprised at how motivating this is! You’ll want to work harder to lose each pound so you can color in the blocks.
Be sure to set rewards for reaching your goals. But remember: make these NON-FOOD rewards! Give yourself smaller rewards at first and work your way up to big rewards as you get closer to your goal.
Food Log: Keeping track of your food is a great way to make sure you are eating healthily. It keeps you honest about your food intake. And I’ve found I don’t want to eat unhealthy treats because I don’t want to have to write them down and have them staring back at me from the page!
You can write a food diary in the daily pages of your bullet journal:
Or if you don’t want to have to write down everything you eat, you can do a simple tracker to make sure you are getting enough water, fruit/ veg, protein and whole grains, and not too much fat and sweets. Other options include logging food points, or calories.
You may find it handier to use a pocket size notebook to track your food intake, so you can take it everywhere with you.
Exercise: Be sure to set daily and weekly goals for your exercise. This tracker (that I showed in the bullet journal trackers post) is a quick and easy way to see if you are reaching your exercise goals each week.
Other weight-loss related things you can add to your bullet journal are lists of healthy food choices, recipes, charts for inches lost, strength training and/ or cardio routines, motivational quotes, etc.
