There was a time when I was really into fitness & weight loss, so yeah... I feel you.
Everything sounds really complicated at the beginning but trust me… It’s going to become waaay easier once you start doing it.
But… what if you did it for a while and you still feel that it’s really hard & you feel you can’t keep up with it?
Trust me, I’ve been there.
So let me tell you a few tricks & tips on how to make this process as easy & fun as possible!
(IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: I am not a health instructor nor a personal trainer. I’m just a person who has been trying to lose some weight to feel better about myself.)
Okay, since the headline of this article is a HUGE spoiler on what I’m going to talk about, let’s go:
Use A Printable Weight Loss Journal
This is my tip. THE TIP. So thanks for your time, this is the end of the article.
Ahh, I guess then I have to tell you WHY I love weight loss journals so much and about how you can use them to reach your goals.
Sounds great? Awesome.
Then let’s get it. ;)
But First… Why Is It Good To Lose Weight?
This point might sound really self-explanatory, but it’s still important to dig deep into the main goal of this article:
To help you lose weight in a way that’s as easy & fun as possible.
And my most important point for today is:
Have realistic goals.
This doesn’t mean that you CAN’T achieve what you want and you have to settle for something worse than what you really really want. No. This means that whatever you want to achieve, make it realistic. Don’t say that you’re going to lose 10 pounds in 3 hours because it’s not realistic. Say: “I’m going to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks.”
This is REALLY important, so you won’t feel bad about yourself when you can’t meet unrealistic goals!
And just one another really important thing here: The most important thing is to feel good in your body. You are here to enjoy your life, aren’t you? So burning yourself out isn’t the way. At least, that’s what I believe in. It’s up to you what you want, I just thought why not share this. :)
You have more energy.
If you have a healthy body, then you’ll have more energy. It’s going to be easier to wake up in the mornings. And your overall mood will also be better.
So that’s it for losing weight.
Let’s get into the main topic:
Printable Weight Loss Journals.
Printable Weight Loss Journals For The Win!
Let’s take a look at why should you use printable weight loss journals! :)
It makes everything easier.
If you write things down, then you don’t have to remember every little thing along the way. So yeah, let’s write down your big WHY at the beginning. Why do you want to lose weight? Then write down your end goal. And the date you want to reach it.
This makes everything soooo much easier, since - again - you don’t have to think it over every single day… This helps you save energy, and you can focus on what’s really important: Losing weight.
(A quick story just to show how powerful this point is: Have you ever been in a car that doesn’t show how much gas you still have? Well, imagine you’re driving one. All around America. This is you if you aren’t using a weight loss journal. Of course, you can still do it, but how much easier it is to drive a car that shows how much gas you still have left, right?)
It can motivate you.
Seeing your goals every day is a sure way to be as motivated as possible. Every time you take a look at them, you remember what you want to achieve. And how you’re going to achieve it.
Make it as fun as possible with the help of a mini printer.
As I told you before you can make this process really fun! If you use a pocket printer, then you can print out different quotes for yourself that will help you get through the hardest parts… Or you can print different characters, or even drawings out that’ll help you remember what you want to achieve, and so on… your creativity is really the only limit!
Just take a look:
If these sound great to you, then there is really nothing left, then to do your own weight loss journal and reach your goals! You deserve it. ;)
