There are many tracking options available such as a fitness watch or apps on your phone.
However, what I love about having a weight loss tracker in my bullet journal is that I can open the page and see my progress on paper. It allows me to see how far I’ve come with every pound lost.
In this article, I’ll show you how to use the bullet journal to lose weight and give you lots of tracker ideas.
How to use a bullet journal to lose weight
Write down your current weight and your goal weight

Take body measurements
Create a tracker that allows you to move towards your goal in small increments such as a half-pound or pound.
Reward yourself when you hit a milestone such as 5, 10, or 15 pounds lost
If you over-indulge one day, don’t give up. Every day is a fresh start!

Bullet Journal Weight Loss Tracker Ideas
#1. Weight & Measurements
Plan_in color created a two-page spread that includes measurement trackers for 6 months including bust, waist, hips, thigh, calf, and arm. If you are doing weight training to build muscle, taking measurements may be a more accurate read than actual weight loss.
Tracking weight on a weekly basis can be more effective than daily weigh-ins. This chart tracks the current weight each week.
Counting the Pounds
There’s something really satisfying about taking note when you lose a pound. This tracker blocks out every pound so that they can get colored in by small increments when new pound is lost.
#2. Game Your Weight Loss
Ulla Lang channelled a favorite childhood game to create this fun and interesting weight loss tracker. It’s a Candy Land inspired bujo page that takes you through temptations such as nachos, fast food, and cupcakes. You can do it. Each step equals one pound lost.

Guten Morgen Ihr Lieben 😊 ich habe mir ein neues Bullet Journal angelegt, um meine Abnehmreise zu dokumentieren. Wenn Ihr Interesse daran habt, schaut bei @mywonderstartsnow vorbei und folgt mir dort gern. Ich wünsche Euch einen schönen Tag 😘 #happyplannerweightloss #happynotes™️ #bulletjournal #bujoweightloss #handlettering #mywonderstartsnow #bulletjournal2019 #weightloss2019 #weightlossjourney2019 #happyplanner #ad #werbungwegenmarkennennung
Inspired by the board game Monopoly, poundopoly is a bullet journal page that guides you step-by-step through each pound lost. There are rewards along the way when milestones are achieved.
#4. Quack Up
Charms.bjournal created a really fun duck-inspired weight loss tracker. She also went about it in a really unique way. Rather than tracking pounds lost, she created a monthly calendar with a box for each day. The box records both a review of the day as well as weight gained or lost.
The daily review includes Good/Healthy, OK/Slacked, and Bad/Gave In. These reviews are noted by color and are a good way to check your weight loss focus each day.
The weight gained/lost uses symbols for each. An up arrow means weight gained, a down arrow means weight lost, and equals sign means didn’t weight, and a hyphen means stayed the same.
#5. Picture This
Hayley Green created a really empowering weight loss page in her bullet journal. Planned as a one-year tracker, there are boxes to record dress size at the beginning of the year and at the end of the year.
In addition, there are sections to record body measurements and weight at both beginning and end of the year.
There is also a monthly tracker to record arms, chest, waist, hips, and thigh measurements.
What I really love most is the before photos she’s attached to the page. I need to incorporate before and after photos into my bullet journal weight loss tracker.
#6. Pyramid Goals
Have you seen the game show, $100,000 Pyramid?
This bujo weight loss tracker reminds me of that show. It starts at the bottom of the pyramid and records weight lost until you reach the top. At the end of each row are rewards such as nails, hair, new shoes, new bag, and finally…a new wardrobe.
#7. Lifestyle Plan
If you’ve tried all of the diets out there at some point you realize its not about the diet, it’s about lifestyle changes. Bujo.angela created a two-page spread. The first page spells out what she’s going to do each day to work towards those goals including 8000 steps and juicing.
The second page is a honeycomb-style tracker to color in weight lost. Below it is the reminder, “I’m not dieting, I’m changing my lifestyle.”
#8. Practice Your Scales
#9. Light and Bright
This bullet journal spread from stethoscoping is an overall heath tracker. Not only does it track weight loss, it also records steps, water intake, water, exercise, and clean eating. All of these tracker use bright colors on a clean white background.
#10. Wealth is Health
A two-page weight loss tracker can record goals as well as provide inspiration. The left side is an annual calendar to track workout days. There’s a goal of 4 times per week minimum.
The right page tracks pounds lost along with inspiring quotes such as, “the greatest wealth is health.”
#11. Minimalist Weight Loss Tracker
Here’s a weight loss tracker for minimalists. With a simple header of Body, this clean and simple tracker records monthly weight loss and body measurements for an entire year.
12. Six-Month Snapshot
Another two-page spread for inspiration! The Petite Planner records weight and measurements on the left page, while the right page provides a workout snapshot. Workouts include: cardio, strength training, and yoga. All of the information is recored over a six-month period.
