DIY Weight Loss Tracker Magnets


I have been on this weight loss journey since August 31 and have lost __ pounds so far. Keeping track of my successes really helps push me to do better and better as the weeks go by. I wanted a fun way to keep track of my weight loss so I added a new addition to my Weight Loss Command Center.


When I first started, I kept track by putting a magnetized pom pom on the weight lost side for every pound I lost. My board was getting full of pom poms and I didn't want to have to keep making pom pom magnets for each pound that I lost. I decided to make it easier for me to track and count my pounds lost by making magnets for each number in the 10s. I think it will also be fun to collect the magnets as a milestone and a reward for each time I hit another 10 pounds lost.

Supplies 
  • Numbers template
  • Flat Craft Bottle Caps
  • Clear Epoxy Adhesive Seal Stickers
  • Tacky White Glue
  • Super Strong Adhesive

Step 1: Print out the numbers template using the fit option onto card stock. Cut each circle out and set aside.


Step 2: Use a strong white glue to place a little bit of glue on the front of the bottle cap. Place one of the circle templates in the middle and press and glue in place. Repeat with the rest of the templates.


Step 3: Carefully place a seal sticker on top of each glued bottle cap.


Step 4: Use the super strong glue to attach a magnet to the back of each bottle cap magnet. Allow to dry for at least 6 hours before using.


**I found most of the supplies on Amazon.

What fun ways do you use to keep track of your weight loss?

  4. I love this because you can kind of customize them to something that makes you happy and this girl needs some visual motivation...I may just have to make a set of these to go along with the new year fitness challenge I signed myself up for!

  9. I really love this idea, it's a prefect area to make sure that you keep focused for your weight loss goals to be achieved. I need to make something like this but I have no idea where I'd display it, I'll have to find a place.
