Weight Loss Ticker: Use It – And Lose It!

March 24, 2009 | By | 57 Replies More

If you are trying to lose weight, you might be active in weigth loss forums. There is just so much to learn from others who are in the same boat, and it is uplifting and inspiring to connect with other people who have their stories to share and their experience and help to offer.

You have probably seen the little “weight loss ticker” bars some of the people in these forums have displayed on the bottom of those posts.  I think they are really nice, and if you use them I believe that they can actually help you stick to your weight loss resolution just this little bit more. By simply displaying your starting weight and your goal weight publicly in a weight loss ticker that also has a slider indicating the weight you have lost, you are making your goal more “visible”, it’s a bit like adding some “visualization” to your weight loss plan. So you will be able to actually see your progress – and you will also be a bit more accountable for what you are doing (or not doing) because others can see it as well.

Sometimes that is all that’s needed to give you the last “shove” to not eat that piece of chocolate, or to not grab those chips – because later you will have to go and adjust your weight loss ticker for everyone to see!

I have investigated a little where you can get a weight loss ticker from, and here are a few for you to check out:

Ticker Factory

My Calorie Counter

My Fitness Pal

I actually like these little tickers so much that I have decided to add one to my blog! 🙂

Here it is:

Now I just have to remember to update it and really get stuck into losing those stubborn kilos! What do you think of my weight loss ticker? Please let me know whether you find the ticker sites of any help.

  1. Those weight loss tickers are really cute. I realized that some of the forum members have it too. I’m not really a fan of weight loss forums but I visit them occasionally.

    I like the weight loss ticker and love to have one for myself too.

  4. I had never noticed these weight loss tickers before you brought them to my attention, but that’s a great idea. By using the weight loss ticker, you essentially now have an audience watching your weight loss performance. This adds additional motivation to consistently show progress!

  8. Weight loss is a simple 3 part formula. Watch what you eat, eat healthy, that means nutritious food without a lot of calories from fats and sugar. Then you must do something to burn those calories. A little exercise such as 30 minutes of walking, swimming, jogging, biking etc. will go a long way to help you meet your goal. Then perhaps the most important is Motivation. To help with staying at it do it with a buddy.

  9. Ally Kaye says:

    When you are trying to lose weight, the best way to do it is still by proper dieting and exercise. Avoid taking slimming pills at all cost, they do more harm than good.

  10. I agree with you Chuck about doing it with a buddy. You can both motivate and support each other. The best way to get into a new thinking pattern and start new habits to replace the old is to surround your self with friends and people who are also doing what you are doing. Support and positive motivation and just having someone believe in you is powerful. I think anyways. We must believe in our selves first and then others will follow and believe in you to. If you don’t then it will be hard to motivate others to direct their energy towards to you.

    The ticker is a really great idea! I hope that a lot of people find benefit from it. The My Calorie Counter one is my favorite, design wise. Does anyone know if it has and iPhone App?

  11. I think you have a very nice site here. I have started paying more and more attention to weight loss. I have been small all my life, but all of a sudden during these winter months, I find myself putting on more and more weight. This is frightening because I never had problems with my weight. But your site and the site that I created along with many other weight loss sites will help me to get back on track. Thank you again for putting this site up with all this useful information.

  12. I think the weight loss ticker is a great idea. Any goal that you can maintain focus on becomes easier to obtain. By focusing on what we want rather than what we don’t want, what we want comes closer and closer. The weight loss ticker seems like a great tool to help us maintain our focus on Weight loss goal.

    We all need acountability as part of our weight loss programme. A weight loss ticker can be a good way to add an extra layer of accountability, but I believe that regular photo’s are the best way to hold yourself accountable.

  37. That’s a really cool idea. I didn’t know about that before. I’m a bit scared to stick it on my blog though. A bit to much information for me to disclose to people. I can see how it would motivate you to stick with your plan if you did. Who wants to have to report to the world they are going backwards 🙁
