When youโ€™re trying to lose weight, thereโ€™re many helpful tools you can use. Weight loss isnโ€™t easy for most of us so helpful tools are welcome, right? Theseโ€™re some of the tools that Iโ€™ve used on my weight loss journey. I hope theyโ€™re helpful to you, too.

1. Measuring Cups and Spoons

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Thisโ€™s a cheap yet very helpful little purchase. In fact, you can purchase each of these at Dollartree for a dollar each. Theyโ€™re very valuable when youโ€™re trying to lose weight. Use them to measure out your portions. After awhile you wonโ€™t need them because youโ€™ll be able to eyeball what a serving looks like. If youโ€™ve never measured your portions before then you may be surprised by how big of a serving size youโ€™ve been eating.

2. A Water Bottle

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Water is your best friend on the road to weight loss. Itโ€™s healthy and keeps you hydrated. It can help you cut out empty calories if you use it to replace soda and other beverages that offer no nutritional value. You can opt for drinking bottled water or purchase a water bottle to refill throughout your day. Thereโ€™re many cute options in water bottles, some of which even have motivational sayings for healthy living inspiration.

3. Hand Weights

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You need strength training along with your cardio. Many times you can combine them by using a set of hand weights while youโ€™re exercising. You can use them when you walk, jog or do other types of cardio. Theyโ€™re very economical and can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Target and many other stores. As time passes, you may want to up the pounds per weight youโ€™re using so buying cheap is wise.

4. A Good Sports Bra

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You know, you just canโ€™t concentrate on your workout if the girls arenโ€™t secure! I know itโ€™s funny but itโ€™s also true! A good sports bra is worth the investment. Plus, Iโ€™m just going to be honest. Having cute workout clothing is motivating to me and Iโ€™d say it is to many of you as well!

5. A Yoga Mat

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A yoga mat is a good weight loss tool even if you donโ€™t do yoga. Theyโ€™re great for yoga, Pilates, stretching during a warm up or cool down and more. I even use mine to make planks more comfortable. If you have a hard wood floor like I do then youโ€™ll probably find a yoga mat very valuable during your workouts. It can save your wrists, knees, ankles and more.

6. A Fitbit

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Thisโ€™s the only weight loss tool that I donโ€™t personally own or use. But I couldnโ€™t leave it out because Iโ€™ve heard so many great things about it. It seems like an amazing little gadget. It tracks your steps, calories burned and even how well you slept. It also syncs with your smart phone if you want to transfer your data.

7. A BMI Calculator

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Lastly, a BMI or body mass index calculator can be very helpful to you. It gives you an accurate picture of where you are with your weight and the range you need to be shooting for. You can access BMI calculators for free on many websites. Hereโ€™s the link to one cdc.gov from a very reputable site so you can quickly check yours. Thereโ€™s nothing like seeing your weight and BMI in black and white to give you a reality check.

Theseโ€™re some valuable tools to use on your weight loss journey. Do you use any of them? What other weight loss tools would you recommend?
