Secrets of Success

Weight Loss Chart




This may sound silly, but I've created a weight loss chart that I hung on the wall. I write down how many calories I consumed that day, how many calories I burned through exercise, and every week I enter my weight. I also write down my goal weight for certain deadlines (1st week, 1st month, etc.). There's something about writing everything down on a chart that holds me accountable. Plus it gives me a burst of motivation every time I look at it because I see how far I've come.
