Weight Loss Tracker – One Meal a Day for Six Weeks

Post image for Weight Loss Tracker – One Meal a Day for Six Weeks

Over a period of six weeks in during July and August I’m going to be tracking my weight on a daily basis.

This short campaign is part of my One Meal a Day for Six Weeks project.

Although I don’t have a specific goal weight that I’m aiming for, it’s useful to monitor my weight so that I can gauge the overall trend.

Tracking the trend, rather than fixating on one number on any given day, gives a better and more accurate picture of true weight loss.

Since I first started writing about weight loss, I’ve noticed that weight loss isn’t a linear thing. It’s variable and fluctuates, sometime quite significantly.

By providing this data I hope to show you exactly how much weight I lose, but more than that, I want you to see how much scale weight can change on a day to day basis.

I think many people quit diets because they misinterpret scale weight and fail to take into account all the other factors involved.

I wrote about this here: Why am I not losing weight?

My scale measures in LBS with decimal divisions (as opposed to ounces).

I’ve included very rough conversions to stones and kilograms.

Hi David,
Thanks for your blog. I enjoy reading it and to see your wondrful progress. O’ve been doing the diet for 1 month – however while i lost 1.8 kgs on the first two weeks. I put on 0.2kgs in the 2nd two weeks. Seeing your weight tracker makes me feel a little hopeful- although still concerned. I break my fast with one cup of tea with milk at 5pm, a glass of wine some cold meat to snack on a plate of curry and rice and tea with a biscuit by 8pm. I will continue for another month – love the freedom of eating 1 meal a day- i used to be a slave to eating every 3 hours and finding myself stuck in a meeting and starving…. hopefully the progress is still to come
