Forecast Your Weight Loss Progress for Motivation

cloudsWhen you embark on your weight loss journey it can sometimes feel that your goal is a million miles away. It is important to remember that your weight loss journey is an evolving transformation, and every couple of weeks you will notice exciting changes.  You don’t have to wait until you get to your ultimate goal to feel good.

Don’t think that you have to get to your goal before you feel good and look good.  That is really not true.  Your journey and transformation will reveal many exciting things to you along the way.

One thing that helps to keep me motivated is to forecast my weight loss results over the next month or so.

FREE WEIGHTLOSS TRACKER SPREADSHEET – Perfect for forecasting your weight loss!


The New You Plan has a free weight loss spreadsheet that is a great tool to help you record your weight loss results, but it also is fun to use to forecast your weight loss results in the future.

By typing in your average expected weight loss each week you will be amazed at what you will achieve just by being consistent on your diet and sticking to the plan 100%.

The spreadsheet also calculates your BMI, so you will see how you will move down the BMI categories and approach your healthy target weight.

Get excited as you drop BMI, Stone Brackets & Jean Sizes!

When I started my weight loss journey I was BMI CLASS 3 OBESE- which is the highest, moving to BMI CLASS 2 OBESE, I was so happy just to get to the BMI CLASS 1 OBESE category, and when I entered the OVERWEIGHT category, well I actually felt amazing 🙂  When I get to the HEALTHY category, I will be dancing on the ceiling. 🙂

Things that really motivated me where:-

1.)  Moving down the BMI scale 

2.)  Getting into a new stone bracket

3.)  Getting into smaller jeans


Get excited and forward plan so you know when you can expect these milestone to occur.  If you know that if you stick to the plan 100% in 2 weeks you could be in a lower BMI class, a lower stone bracket and a size smaller jeans, then that is an exciting thing to hold on to when you feel tempted to break the diet.

Get really clear in your head the mini milestones you are working towards.  Forward tracking has really helped me to stay motivated.

Plan some treats and rewards to celebrate your wins!

nailsWhen I forward track, I always plan rewards and treats.  Like a new handbag, or a new pair of shoes, a nice scarf, or a beauty treatment.  I usually picked something that wasn’t clothing related, and something that I can enjoy no matter what weight I am.

One thing I have got addicted to is getting Shellac Nails, here is a picture of the first time I got them done, I get them done every few weeks now as I just love how I feel when my nails look so nice!  🙂  My husband loves it when I get them done as I am always in really good mood that day!! Ha ha! 🙂

It is VERY IMPORTANT not to say you will treat yourself to something and then when you achieve the goal, decide not to do afterall.  I have done this in the past, and then I usually find I lose motivation, so if you plan a treat, make sure you see it through!  Don’t cheat yourself! You want this journey to be exciting and fulfilling so that you enjoy it.

Plan a break in 90 Days time AND BOOK IT NOW!

I also found it helped me to have a weekend break or a holiday planned, something that I could not change the date of, so that meant I had a real focus and date to work towards.    It is good to plan a weekend break every 90 days or so.  Whatever your budget you should try to do this, especially if you are booking a few months in advance you can usually get cheap rooms in hotels and if you want to fly somewhere easy jet have cheap flights if you book early.

If you always wait until the time is perfect, until you have lost your weight, and until you have money saved, then nothing really happens and you just stay stuck.  So get some real goals set, and get something to look forward to booked.  Even if it is just a weekend in  a travel lodge or premier inn hotel in a town 30 mins away from where you live.  Just book it now! Set some goals and get excited!!

      I have just forecast my weightloss, and I have to say it was the most motivating exercise I have ever done!
      My problem in the past is thinking that I could never be down to a normal weight, but for me to go from “Class II Obese” to “Normal” with the New You plan it will take just 17 weeks!!

      Watch this space in May 2013 when my slim self will be rocking it!

      Anyone debating whether to try this? Don’t think, just do. Trust me – really helps with the mental attitude, and once you know you can do it, it gets so much easier! 🙂

          Aww thanks Julz! Yes I am an avid reader of the Secret Slimmers group, it keeps my mind busy when I get a bit peckish 😉
          No other diet plan has ever worked for me, but within 3 weeks on the New You (before Xmas) I lost 1.5stone and that has really encouraged me to continue with my goal of a total 6 stone loss.

          Must say a massive thank you to everyone at New You and all of the fantastic support – I have a strong feeling that this will change my life 😀
