You may be wondering why you need a printable weight loss chart. What is the point of it? Why does it help?
A printable weight loss chart offers many benefits that you may not have considered. Have you ever noticed that when you have a busy day and you write down all the things you need to get done that you achieve more of those aims than you would had you not written them down? The reason for this is that you refer back to that list when you complete a task to see what other tasks need to be completed. In other words, that list helps maintain your focus on the GOALS you have for the day. If you tick or cross of tasks as they are completed it also provides motivation because you can see your progress at a glance.
I’m sure just about anyone reading this has heard of the ‘Law of Attraction’ and one important aspect of utilizing the law of attraction involves the use of a ‘vision board’ or ‘dream map’. This is a poster created containing pictures and phrases pertaining to the life you desire. It may include pictures of happy families engaged in family activities, luxury cruise ships (for holidays), a Lamborghini Countach as your ideal car, a mansion for your home and even a picture of you with the body you want. For this last one, just attach a head shot of yourself to an image of the body you want to achieve. Make sure it’s practical though, if you’re 6′ tall and 2′ across the shoulders (bones only) then pasting a picture of some petite little person who isn’t even 1.5′ wide isn’t going to work as it’s physically impossible because you can’t change your bone size. The purpose of this poster is to help you focus on the things you desire and motivate you to do the things you need to do to achieve them.
The purpose of a printable weight loss chart is basically the same thing.

- Start date: This provides a yardstick for your efforts. With it you can see how much weight you lose over time. For example you may have lost 12lbs in 12 weeks.
- Starting weight: What you weighed at the beginning. Again, used as a yardstick to see how far you have come.
- Goal weight: Your goal weight provides a tangible goal for you to commit to rather than just some airy fairy ‘I want to lose weight’. This goal weight should be decided in consultation with your family doctor based upon your BMI so that you don’t have unrealistic weight loss goals.
- Goal period: How long do you want to take to reach your goal weight? It is extremely important that you select a practical time frame. Don’t aim to lose 50 lbs in 12 weeks because it’s not going to happen and you will become discouraged and give up. Even if it were possible, if you lost weight that quickly within 12 weeks of stopping the diet you would probably have regained those 50 lbs plus an extra 10 lbs. Aim for a weight loss of around one to two pounds per week. If you have a large amount of weight to lose you can do it in stages. Say for example you need to lose a total of 100 lbs, make your first goal 50 lbs then when you reach that create another 50 lb goal. That way the odds don’t seem so insurmountable.
