No matter what I'm doing, if I find it difficult to visualise how something looks or will look, I just cannot grasp it in my mind. I'd much rather someone show me how to do something or tell me, than have to read instructions. Not because I'm lazy, I'm quite the opposite in fact, it's just because I do not learn easily that way. I have always struggled with being a slow reader, and finding it difficult to comprehend the written word, particularly if it's complex.
Keeping in mind that in my book, simple is good, I use three easy methods for tracking my weight.
1. Daily Planner - My Daily Planner includes a section to record the following:
Weight Change -/+
Total to Goal
This means that each day I can record my weight, note any change up or down, and see the total amount I have lost, and how much I have to go. I see this everyday when I am in and out of my planning document.
2. Pounds of Butter - Yes, that's what I said, pounds of butter. In my Daily Planner I add an image of pounds of butter showing how much weight I have lost so far. A pound (500 grams) of butter is something I can easily relate to, both in my minds eye, and when I see it.
3. Happy Scale App - A fantastic free app to record your weight loss goals and progress. With options for chunking it down into mini goals, and the ability to see the data in one home screen, it's a real game changer. I love how I can get a prediction of when I will be at my goal by choosing how much weight I'm committing to losing each week.
Well, I hope you've found this helpful for your weight loss journey.
