Advantages Of A Printable Weight Loss Chart Over A Digital-only Version

When losing weight, sometimes it is necessary to use tools to maintain motivation. After all, motivation is one of the most difficult things about losing weight! It is very difficult to sustain a high level of motivation over the long-term – and, for many people, losing weight is a very long-term proposition.

In many instances, employing concrete weight loss tools such as a printable weight loss chart can serve to keep a person’s motivation at the same high levels that it was when they made their initial decision to get in shape.

Here are some of the ways that using a printable weight loss chart can be even more useful for some people than using a digital version:

1 – With a printable version of a weight loss chart, you can fill in your progress with a pen. For many users, this provides a tangible sense of accomplishment that entering the numbers into a digital weight loss chart on the computer would never be able to convey in the same way. There is just something more solid in the feeling of gripping a pen and writing something down!

2 – When a person chooses a printable weight loss chart, as opposed to keeping track of that information digitally, then another advantage is that chart can be taken with them anywhere they go, kept in a purse or a pocket. Of course, with smart phones, a web-based chart could be accessed the same way – but not everyone has a browser-enabled smart phone – not even close! Everyone can, however, carry a piece of paper around with them.

3 – When you record your weight loss goals tangibly, on paper, you can post that piece of paper where it will do the most good. For different people, that will be different places. For some people, it might be in their bedroom where they can see it first thing in the morning. For some people, that might be in the bathroom near their scale, so that they can record their weight immediately upon stepping off of the scale.

For others, it might be in the kitchen, near the refrigerator, where they can use the information in the chart to help them have the strength of will to make smart food choices – food choices that are ultimately going to support them rather than sabotage them in reaching their ultimate weight loss goal. For every person, the place and purpose of posting the printed weight loss chart will be different, but the effect will be the same – keeping your progress, and your goal, right in front of your eyes all the time.

As you can see, using a weight loss chart that can be printed out can be an absolutely invaluable tool in the ongoing battle to maintain single-minded focus on the end goal of losing weight and getting healthy – and in a battle for your health and life, every weapon matters!

      As a fellow student, I understand your struggle. My butt feels constantly glued to a seat and I don’t have the time or attention for planning healthy meals. It’s tough but I manage to control my weight and even lose weight every now and then with some pretty easy tactics. Since you want to lose it, you’ll have to get serious. I would highly recommend cardio workouts. Depending on your fitness level and personal tastes you could try at home workouts like Tae Bo or you can hit the gym (in which case walking or jogging on the tredmill mixed with weights would be effective). Basically, make yourself workout even when you feel tired from studying or a long day. Next thing you know, you’ll look forward to the stress relief. Remember to watch what you eat and consider counting calories…you may be surprised how much you eat daily! Get sleep. Lack of sleep stresses the bod out and you may compensate with food. And you definitely will have less energy for workouts. GOOD LUCK!
