Weight Tracker

I found a good way to embarrass myself. I now have added this weight tracker graphic on the top of my blog where I will be updating every Monday. It will track the weight lost after starting my low-calorie diet last week (at the time I was weighing 162 lbs). The reason I put this here is so that I can push myself to go forward with the diet, because if I backtrack, the arrow will become red (instead of navy-blue) and everyone will know that I screwed up. It’s just one more mechanism to push myself. The absolute healthy weight for my size (I am short) is about 102 lbs, but even if I end up losing 50lbs instead of 60lbs that would still be a major success. So, let’s see what I can accomplish this time (although my scheduled August vacations in Europe will obviously disrupt the diet).

Accountability is a good tool.

Do you have a maintenance plan for when you do get to your goal weight?

I made it in PaintShopPro. I am pretty handy with pixel-pushing. :)

My weighing thingie tells me my weight in lbs, so I keep it that way, sorry. :)

There is sth that will give you much greater incentive !

You can send a picture of you with your current weight in a bikini, to someone who doesn’t like you all that much. Then ask him to publish it on hot or not unless you reach your target weight in 4 months.
