We have all seen plenty of: Lose all your weight or dress sizes in a month, marketing scams and maybe some of them work, but I’m willing to say most of them are unhealthy because they create a yoyo diet effect. Without a clear way to satisfy your nutritional needs, you’ll be back to stuffing your face in no time.
How To Use The Fitbit Weight Trends Chart
How do you Determine Your Correct Weight?
There are 3 main calculations, the BMI Body Mass Index, Waist to Height Ratio WHtR my favorite The Body Fat Calculator.
Body Mass Index (BMI)
Several charts for BMI take into account your age, height, and weight to come up with your index.
Even the person who created the Body Mass Indes in the 1830s told the government (the UK) it should not be used to gauge someone’s health.
Waist to Height Ratio Calculation (WHtR)
Considered by many doctors and scientists as being the best and easiest indicator to gage obesity-associated cardio and diabetes risk.
The Body Fat Calculator
This calculation uses the U.S. Navy method and includes a calculation of body fat percentage using the BMI method, so you see the best of both.
The Body Fat Calculator is made up of a calculation to measure body fat as a percentage of body mass using measurements from height, the neck, waist, and hips.
The U.S. Navy method shows the percentage and amount of body fat and lean Body Mass, and the BMI percentage of fat.
Monthly Weight Loss Chart Updates
The Fitbit Weight Loss Chart is an easy way to track and be accountable for your weight changes.
Weight Goals: 186 pounds and 12 to 16 percent body fat
I took a look at several measurement scales including the Navy BMI, body fat index, and height to waist ratio. I haven’t weight 186 since, well a long time ago. That weight puts me on the high end of a normal weight range for men in my height and age range.
Weight Trends for May 2021
This chart has been a big wake-up call to question my actions, motivation, and why I’m being so lackadaisical about my weight.
First of all,
What is my mission?
- To be healthy
- Keep a good fitness level
- Stay healthy
What’s the motivation?
- Get back into a yoga class
- Start traveling again
- Don’t do any drugs (including prescriptions unless I have to.)
- Live a healthier abundant life.
What actions will be taken?
Summer has just started so being outside is a great way to walk or hike and experience new trails and different parts of the city. With Covid restrictions finally coming to an end now might be a time to start checking out some new yoga teachers.
Diet of course is the most important action to incorporate into a weight loss program, and this being summer it will be easy to include more veggies and longer periods between meals. Currently, the schedule is set for 2 meals a day with no snacks and the meals are about 5 hours apart.
Weight Chart for 2020
As usual spring and summers are always an easy time to be active and lose weight and late fall and winter, well not so much.
I’m down to 2 meals a day and when I stay away from snacks I always feel better.
Protein is starting to be a primary part of the diet and including vegetables to help to support the brain and body connection.
HIIT is now being added twice a week for strength and agility. And Qi Gong or yoga is being added every day for flexibility and balance.
So I’m not in a rush to meet my weight goals, health is still the number one goal, so trying new foods and exercise routine is a part of keeping a healthy lifestyle.
Weight Trends Chart for September 2020
Why have I lost so much weight in the last 4 months?
I’ve lost just over 11 pounds since May. Not an astounding feat, but consistent and done healthily. Part of the reason is cutting back on carbs and cutting out snacking with 4 to 5 hours between meals. And typically I just eat 2 meals a day, a late breakfast with mostly protein & fat, and a late lunch with mostly veggies, protein, and fat.

3 Month Chart Ending July 2020
There has been so much in the news about people staying at home and putting on weight over the last several months I wanted to show that does not have to be the case.
I’ve talked to several members of the Fitbit Community and they are pretty much taking pretty good care of themselves. A lot of them are getting more steps in and some have started a yoga 30, which’s 30 days of yoga for 30 minutes.
Weight Loss Chart July 2019
Weight Chart for May 2019
This month’s weight has been pretty level and I believe it was because of just being lazy, not getting in enough steps and yoga at night.
I’m planning to change that this month with some Chi Gong in the morning and yoga in the evening with meditation before bed.
And yes will increase my steps.
Weight Chart July 2019
It looks like my weight loss has leveled out. But that’s OK, the main goal is better health so I don’t want to sacrifice health for weight loss. So what can I do to increase health? This is what I’ll be asking myself for the next month.
These are my Fitbit stats up to February 12th, the Holidays are over and weather is still keeping most of us inside.
