How to Make a Weight Loss Graph
For accuracy, weigh yourself weekly at the same time of day on the same day of the week. ( Images)

Achieving your weight loss goals is difficult if you aren't tracking your weight each week, so creating a weight loss graph is an important step if you're serious about getting healthy. Once you have the proper diet and exercise regimen in place, a weight loss graph can help you see how successful or unsuccessful you are in implementing it. It will also prompt you to make changes where needed. Creating a weight loss graph is very simple and requires only a few materials.

  1. 1

    Write a range of weights next to each horizontal line of the graph on the left side of the page. For example, if there are 50 horizontal lines on your graph paper, write the weights 90.7 through 68.5 Kilogram - if you weigh within that range - on the lines on the left.

  2. 2

    Write a range of weeks on each vertical line of the graph at the bottom of the page. For example, write 6/6/11 for the first week on the first line, 6/13/11 on the next line, and so on. To give yourself enough space, you might want to write the weeks on every other line.

  3. 3

    Place a dot indicating what you weighed on what date where the two lines intersect. Continue doing this each week, connecting each dot with a line. When you're finished, you should have a graph documenting your rise and fall in weight over a period of months.

  4. 4

    Post the graph in a prominent place to give you motivation for your weight loss goals.
