Weight Loss Success Tips
Keep a Weight Loss Journal


You're immediate thought may be - "That's way too much effort" - but keeping a written journal can be an effective tool in helping keep you on track and motivated to achieving your goal.

Self-monitoring is absolutely crucial to weight loss motivation and success.

Research has found that people who track their food intake and other factors are more likely to lose weight and maintain their weight loss.

However, to keep a weight loss journal correctly, you must write down everything you eat. This includes meals, snacks and even the amount of water you drank that day. If you're on a Herbalife programme then you can note down whether you had your two shakes for that day and if you had any other supplements such as the aloe drink or other supplements depending on the programme that you're on.

You can also record your emotions in your food journal. This can help you identify certain triggers for overeating and help you find healthier ways to cope.

You can also keep your goal weight at the top of each page and use your journal to remind yourself of the main reason why you are losing weight. Keeping yourself reminded of your goal is a great motivational tool.

You don't need to purchase an actual journal. A small notebook where you can use a page a day is ideal and inexpensive.
