Are you creating a bullet journal weight loss tracker? Keeping track of pounds (or stones) can be a motivating and fun addition to your health and fitness bullet journal!
I love having a bullet journal dedicated to my health journey. Yes, my weight loss journey has a bujo all to itself. But why not? Weight loss takes a significant amount of time and effort – usually more than one 12 month planner can hold.
I’ve put down and picked up my health and fitness bullet journal more times than I’d like to admit. At times, I’m using it daily. Other times it sits on a shelf for months.
I go back to my weight loss graph to see my progress. Up, down, up down, down down down, and up again. It’s tough. Weight loss doesn’t happen in a straight line.
Bullet Journal Tracker for Weight Loss
That’s what got me thinking about creating a tracker that focused on progress – rather than my recent lack of progress.
I wanted a layout to show progress that is not on a graph or a grid. One without date commitments. A weight loss tracker that doesn’t expect me to do this in a straight line, because who knows how long this is gonna take? Really.
Bullet Journal Weight Loss Tracker: Creative Layout
This twisty, twirly layout represents the curvy, topsy, turvy progress of a weight loss journey.
Each number represents a pound lost. The curly lines in between point in the right direction, but will remind you that progress doesn’t happen in a straight line. But these numbers don’t have to represent what the scale shows.
Other ideas for this layout:
- Days spent staying on plan
- Number of workouts completed
- Weeks spent working toward a goal
- A count of meetings or weekly weigh-ins you’ve been accountable for
- Weeks spent maintaining your weight
- Weeks spent committed to your journey (and they don’t have to be consecutive!)
Creating a Whimsical Bullet Journal Weight Loss Tracker
To create this layout, I simply started with the number one in the top, left corner of a two-page spread and twisty-turned around with arrows until I reached 50. Then I added a few encouraging messages where I had room.
To keep the layout readable and not messy-looking, I kept the lettering for the numbers consistent throughout. Every fifth number is a bit larger and a big fancier – because those are the milestones.
Progress NOT Perfection
I left a space for this important little tidbit of motivation. Weight loss really is all about progress. It’s about the journey. I think that’s why it fits so well with bullet journaling.
Yes, there’s an end goal. But that’s not the end.
I hope that creating this layout and returning to it again and again over time will motivate and inspire you to keep moving forward!
