Here on my “Weights and Measures” page, I maintain a record of my daily weigh-ins, my diet, and my time spent exercising and meditating.
Body weights and measures are one way we stay on course with our weight loss efforts. It is not the only way, but there is definitely an advantage to knowing where I am on the scale and the tape.
Here, I record my daily weigh-in results and compare them against my goal weight for the day. The goal is a guide, not a hard rule. I just want to know I am in the range. Plus, striving to reach a goal every day helps me make better choices when it comes to eating and exercising.
I also have a column for what diet technique I was using on that day. And I keep a record of my time spent exercising and meditating. I want to get a snapshot of my routine and see how my efforts as a whole contribute to my weight loss and fitness.
- I record exercise in minutes because I have a minimum threshold I want to hit every day.
- Meditation is also in minutes but could be two or more sittings throughout the day. Only mindfulness or focused meditation count for this chart.
I have listed all my weigh-ins here from the beginning of my weight loss regimen. When I type a specific date into the search bar I see how much I weighed, what I was eating, and how much I exercised and meditated.

Tracking my weight loss:
Keeping an eye on my weight loss trend provides valuable information and motivation.
It is not just about the weight I lose. It is where I lose it. Staying on top of my body measurements is another indicator of how healthy I am overall.
I will typically update my weigh-ins on a daily basis so that I stay motivated and committed.
