I think I need a new scale.  We have the Aria scale, and the past month every time I step on it the weight is across the board.  I mean from 99 pounds to 126 pounds to 150 pounds to 148 pounds.  I weighed myself in London on a traditional bathroom scale and was 148 when coming home.  Today, I am back at 150.  I put it down but I do not believe it;  I feel lighter, I went over a notch on my belt this week, and my jeans are looser.  To be honest before starting this journey that is how I weighted myself.  Now that my rant is over let’s check out Fit at Fifty Week Twelve.  By the way do you have a favorite scale?

Fit at Fifty Week Twelve

I can just tell you how much I am loving SPIN at home.  OMG – I have become addicted. Who am I?  I can officially say buying a spin bike for at home use has been one of the best things I have ever done. I have worked up to 90 minutes on the bike, and honestly love it so much I could keep going.  Quitting the gym may be one of the best things I have ever done!

Beginning Weight:  148

End of week: 150

Successes: 

  • Worked out 5 days in a row and honestly I LOVED it
  • Portion control is under control, and I do not feel hungry or crave sugar
  • Losing belly fat;  I feel it melting off

Failures:

  • Still have not had a chance to get a proper eating plan into place which I want to focus on while being home this week.  I really think I need more protein.
