How to Start a Weight Loss Journal

Posted by   + Show Post

Welcome to the Healthy Weight loss journaling forum!

Journaling is a great way to keep track of your weight loss progress.

To start your own weight loss journal in the group, follow these simple steps:

2. Title your journal: Call it "[Your Name]'s Weight Loss Journal or something more creative.

3. Start posting! Introduce yourself, share how much weight you want to lose or what healthy changes you want to make to your life, and write about what you want to get out of journaling.

4. Return to this post each day to update your journal and keep track of your progress. Just reply to your original post to keep your journal fresh and updated. Be sure to check out the comments that other moms are making on your journal, too.

How do you stay motivated? I am not good at keeping track of anythin or sticking with anything and I really want to loose weight and stay motivated doing it.

I should have started one of these at the beginning of this summer diet - would have been nice to chart all my progress to keep that momentum going!  I guess it's never to late to start!

Thanks for sharing - going to start one!!

I'm going to start tomorrow. I'll do an official weigh in, do the measurements and record everything! Question? How often should you weigh yourself?
I have also bought a weightwatchers cookbook full of yummy recipes.
My daughter and I haven't had fast food in two weeks now, yah!!!!

if you have an iphone or a smart phone, you can download the App called MyFitnessPal
You can put in the foods that you ate, the water intake, and the exercises and workouts that you did.
Its great. It also counts the calories for you, if you need or want to do that.
