How Do You Lose Weight In Bullet Journals?

  2. Find Trackers That Will Help You.
  3. Use a Goal Tracker
  4. Follow For A Month
  5. Do An Honest Assessment

Set a Goal

Setting a goal is always the first step, this is especially so in weight loss and fitness. The most important thing is to set a realistic goal when you are starting out!

So with your first month, set a good goal like shedding a two or three pounds. This should get you going and let you find out if your plan is effective.

Find Trackers That will Help You

Here’s where the Bullet Journal gets really fun. Once you narrow down what you need to achieve your goal, the next step is to setup the trackers you need in your bujo!

If you’re having trouble finding what you need to lose weight, here’s some ideas!

  • Weight Loss Trackers
  • Exercise Trackers
  • Meal Plans
  • Water Trackers
  • Sleep Trackers
  • Calorie Trackers
  • Body Measurements Trackers

Use A Goal Tracker

Keep track of your goals! No matter how small the goal is, write it all down and celebrate(with something healthy) every time you reach it. The most important part is that you feel the progress that you have achieve.

For example, in your first week, setting the goal of being able to do 10 pushups is amazing! Another goals could be to run 2 or 3 miles cumulative throughout the week!

Follow For A Month

You have to do this, honestly and cleanly, for a month to really see the effects. And, by using the trackers, it’ll be easy keeping track of the days you have succeeded in or missed!

Do An Honest Assessment

At the end of the month, the only one you’ll be held accountable to is yourself! If you do an honest assessment, you can adjust your plans and shape it to what works for you more.

If you don’t do an honest assessment, the only one you’ll be cheating is yourself!
