Weight Loss Command Center: Pounds Lost Tracker

As soon as I felt myself slipping with the weight loss efforts I went to my Weight Loss Command Center to tweak it up a little bit. Having this huge visual right by my door is super motivating because it makes it easier to schedule my day. I decided I wanted to make my Weight Loss Command center just a little bit better.

I have a weekly notebook planner where I write down what I will eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now I take the Whiteboard part of my command center and write down what I am going to eat the night before. This way as soon as I wake up I can look at my command center and prepare my meals for the day.

The whiteboard calender was a huge disappointment as the marker wouldn't easily come off and it was already starting to peel off. I found the cork board square that went with my other squares in the center so I used it to hold a paper calender that I designed. Click on the link to download your own calendar. This made it easier to just write on the paper and post it onto the cork board then having to write on the wall.

I wanted to add a fun way to track my pounds lost so I made these super easy magnets out of pom poms. I always have pom poms on hand from my daughter's art projects so I took little pieces of magnetic tape and hot glued them onto 15 pom poms. For every pound lost I will move it over to the lost side. My first small goal is to lose 15 pounds so this is one way to keep track.

I also changed the motivational poster for the month. You can download it here.

What are some of the fun ways you keep track of your pounds lost? 


  1. You have obviously found some great ways to motivate yourself and I'm glad it is working for you. As for me--I am fighting at the moment to just not gain any and maybe lose one or two although I need to lose a whole lot more then that. It is infinitely harder to lose weight the older you get (I will be 65 in September)

  2. What a great idea. I think if I had a setup like this, I would be much more motivated.

  3. Having a command center is a great idea! I really need to motivate myself. I hit a rut and I can't seem to get myself out of it. One thing that does motivate me is a picture I have hanging on my fridge. It is me before two babies. Now I doubt I will get to the 115lbs that I was in that picture but it reminds me I would be happy if I was around the 130 mark.

  4. That is an awesome idea! I love that you glued little dots to magnets for your pounds lost section. This looks very motivating.

  5. that is an awesome idea! i need to make this for myself!

  6. I love that you have this and have tweaked it to make it work better for you! Go girl!
