We have been talking lately on MPM about some things you can include in your weight loss journal that will help motivate and inspire you in your weight loss journey. It’s a journal that tracks your journey, and today’s free printables are going to help you do just that!
Because you asked… and because I love to get creative…
Several of our readers have asked specifically for printable weight loss trackers after I mentioned mine in a meal plan post about a month ago. My weight loss tracker really wasn’t all that pretty, but it worked. I decided to call it my “100 Pound Countdown” and I shared a picture of what I made in my planner…
Since the time I posted that original picture, I have had the pleasure of coloring in 14 squares, with each square representing one pound. (I had already lost 7 pounds when I first created my 100 Pound Countdown, so I had a little bit of a head start.)
I have been playing around with some different ideas on canva.com, and I have nailed down a few different styles for you to pick and choose from. These weight loss trackers are perfect for anyone trying to lose 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, or 100 pounds, and several include a place to record your rewards and reasons for weight loss as well.
Here is how this will work…
Click on any picture to be taken to a PDF you can print off.
The pictures below are small and include an MPM watermark. I wanted you to get an idea of what the printable looks like, but that is not what you will print. When you click on the picture, it will open up a PDF of the printable that you can see better, that doesn’t include the watermark and that you can easily print. Each of these resources are just a click away from being printed off. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Here is what we have for you…
WEIGHT LOSS TRACKERS
“Getting Warmer” Weight Loss Trackers
Let’s start with the simple squares style of the weight loss trackers. I started this style as a “100 Pound countdown” (because that was what I was doing) and then based the rest off of that same framework, to accommodate people who are trying to lose less weight. With the trackers that have less squares to fill in, there is room to write in your reasons for wanting to lose weight.
You are getting warmer… warmer… oooh! You’re getting hot!
The cooler colors at the beginning and the warmer colors at the end serve as a reminder that with every pound lost you are getting “warmer and warmer” to reaching your goal. (Did you play that game when you were a kid?) By the time you reach the end, you are HOT! (in more ways than one) 😉 Are you ready to start crossing off some numbers? Simply click on the picture of the weight loss tracker you need, based off of how much weight you are trying to lose, and it will open up a PDF that you can download and/or print.
“My Weight Loss Journey Starts Now” Weight Loss Tracker
This one was inspired by weight loss trackers I saw on Pinterest. These trackers turn losing weight into a game… a game that you just can’t wait to win. 🙂 With this style, you can fill in each box or just cross off the numbers as you lose the weight. Smaller ones that have enough room also have a spot to write in “rewards” for losing the weight, as an extra incentive. If you are losing 50 pounds or more, we have extra pages that give room to write out your rewards below these trackers.
♥ Heart Weight Loss Trackers ♥
For people who are trying to lose 20, 30, or 40 pounds, I made these cute little heart shaped weight loss trackers. The idea of bubbles you can color in looked like fun to me, and the concept was totally up my creative-make-it-cutesy alley. It got a little tricky when I started to do more than 40 bubbles, so I reserved this style for those trying to lose 40 pounds or less. My thinking behind this style is that when you lose the weight, it makes your heart healthier and does more than just help you squeeze into smaller sized pants. I wanted to shift the focus on overall health with these, while making them cute at the same time.
REWARDS AND REASONS
And, finally, it felt right to include a space in my personal journal to write out rewards I would give myself as I reached milestones. I also wanted to be intentional about writing out my reasons why I needed to the lose the weight. All three of these work together to motivate me, so I thought they might help you to. Here is an example of what a “rewards and reasons” spot in a journal might look like…
When I first started making printables, I was just going to do them for people trying to lose 100 pounds, and I was going to do a “100” theme (like when I made my “100 Things to do besides eat” post). As I created the printables, though, I wanted to open it up to more people, so below you will see what I originally made for people trying to lose 100 pounds. Below that is a “fill-in-the-blank” version of the same thing. You can fill in the number of pounds you are trying to lose with those and make it your own! 🙂
