I have tracked my weight since 2009 when I lost 46 pounds. I keep the charts I use to graph my weight daily in a three-ring binder. It is nice being able to look back on my progress, or lack of progress. Now I am 20 pounds heavier than I was two years ago. It is amazing how it crept on slowly 10 pounds each year. Graphing my weight daily gives me motivation in the short term, I can see what is happening. The charts provide such a history for me in the long term. I can see how various events, such as vacation or an injury have an effect on my progress. The monthly weigh and measure charts from Curves I also keep in the binder. This gives me not only weight, but inches and BMI. Sometimes the progress does not show on the scale!
