Product Review: Destination Slim Journals

Meal Journals for Surgical Weight Loss Regimes

Keeping track of what you eat is one of the most powerful tools we have to have full awareness of your intake and establish optimal eating patterns.

The simple step of documenting your eating can result in weight loss, as it brings some accountability (even if only to yourself) over your food choices – we all want to feel proud and being able to reflect on the positive choices you make can really give you the push you need to succeed.

In recent years there has been the introduction of  App based and online food diaries and tracking options, and whilst these are amazing in what they can calculate for you, they aren’t for everyone.

For many people, you can’t beat a good old paper based diary and boy is there one we can’t wait to tell you about.

Destination Slim’s Meal Journals are something special, these journals are designed with the needs of weight loss surgery tracking in mind.

These eight week journals have pages dedicated to:

  • Your pre-surgery photo
  • Questions to ask at your next appointment
  • A why am I taking this weight loss surgery journey page
  • Contact numbers for up to eight members of you team
  • Your results so far
  • Your weight
  • Notes, and of course
  • Eights weeks of food and fluid monitoring.

The journals come in five fabulous (and fun) colours, as in Kim from Destination Slim’s words ‘you can’t have the weight loss surgery journey too serious all the time.”

The colour range includes:

  • Luscious Lime
  • Racy Red
  • Bravo Blue
  • Proud Purple and
  • Perfect Pink.

Kim went on to explain, she understands there are people struggling with their weight loss post surgery, and need a little bit of fun to keep them motivated.

In Destination Slim’s spirit, they also sell a ‘Losers Bench’ charm that was so popular, it sold out within five minutes of first hitting their store (don’t worry they have stocked up since then).

Now these journals are a bit of a splurge at $19.95, but they are something you are likely to keep forever – as reminder of where you have come from and how much you have achieved.

To snap yourself up your own journal, or even treat yourself to one of the cute charms, head over to Destination Slim.
