Lon’s Success Journal (click to download)
I hesitate in providing this, but in the end I also want to help someone else. This is my Journal which I keep in parallel with what I enter on the BeyondDiet website. I created this spreadsheet initially to track my weight loss each week since that feature wasn’t available on the website.
The Excel spreadsheet includes my first 35 weeks on the program with daily entries for all my meals. There is a tab for my weight loss and graph with notes embedded for significant events. The spreadsheet grew to include a food sugar tab, Glycemic index and a list of example foods for Protein, Carbs and Fats from the Beyond Diet pages.
I’m providing this so that perhaps someone who is interested in this level of detail and tracking can use it. You are free to copy and download this file.
PLEASE NOTE. For obvious reasons of time and resources if you are not familiar with Excel or do not have the Microsoft program, I am unable to help or instruct. I’m sorry, but it’s just not practical to think that I could help folks from the internet on how to use a spreadsheet. I’d love to, but…. Thanks for understanding!
If you have questions or comments on the content I would happy to answer if I can.
Update July, 2012. I’ve just uploaded a copy of my current, working Journal. There’s a gap between Nov, 2011 and Feb 2012 – and I put back on nearly 15lbs. A couple things happened. Major knee surgery getting reconstructive ACL surgery on my right knee. Old skiing injury, this was more proactive maintenance as opposed to a serious injury. Anyway, exercise had stopped in November, surgery December 1st. It wasn’t until I was able to do some active physical therapy and conditioning in late January that I was able to start exercising again. In addition to that, I fell off a bit and began eating some foods – wrong foods, wrong times and late at night. Subsequently I gained some back. Come full circle, I’m back to where I was before surgery with a little ways yet to go. It’s a journey – and a lifelong one at that.
