My Weight Loss Journey + Weight Tracker Free Printable

Wight Loss - Free Printable

This year I'm on a mission to get my weight in check!  Last year I was at my biggest ever (even bigger than when I was pregnant!), coming in at a whopping 154 pounds.  I looked at myself and knew this is not the weight I needed to be, especially being only 5'1!  

Not only did I not feel comfortable in my clothes, I also didn't feel comfortable health-wise.  I found it hard to breath just doing simple tasks and it bothered me that I never really felt hungry.  I finally realized that I was just eating to eat but my body wasn't actually hungry.  This is when I started making changes and taking the steps to live a healthier life.

I started last year by running and eating better and lost 7 pounds right away!  That gave me the motivation to keep going.  I have to admit the holidays and cold weather really affected me.  I stopped running but continued to eat healthier.  Even with not running and only eating healthier, I still lost an extra 6 pounds which equals to a nice 13 pounds down from my original weight!  I can't even begin to tell you how much healthier I feel!

My goal right now is to reach 135 pounds by summer and be a healthy size 6.  I feel this is a perfect weight for me and my body type.  One way I plan to reach my goal is with this Weight Tracker sheet I made.

There's a section to write down the weight and I know some people count calories, so I put a daily calories section, too.  And of course it's always important to get your glasses of water in, so you can tally that up in the water tab. 

I personally don't eat 6 times a day, but I know when weight training it's important to eat a lot of little meals.  This is why I made a section for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner along with 3 places in between for snacks.  This way all the meals can be planned to encourage healthy eating. 

And I couldn't forget the most important part...the Goals section.  This section is to write daily goals and a little note of encouragement to help reach those goals. 

I think this weight tracker will be so helpful, I decided to share it with you!  Get your free printable Weight Tracker here.
