- My ketosis experiment
- A new book I'm reading
- A very exciting update on my search for a new scale!
Ok, first things first...here are this week's numbers:
Weekly Progress Numbers
Week three of Ketosis is going really well. Since I've started my experiment, I have lost over 4 pounds, which is definitely good for my situation. I also feel better and I have noticed a difference in some of my clothes, so I suspect that I have been losing mostly fat.
I've recently picked up another book that has been helpful. Many of you know that the whole low-carb movement started with the Atkins diet. Since I've been following a similar plan, I decided to look into an Atkins update by Dr. Eric Westman. The title is The New Atkins for a New You. It looks to be very helpful as I adjust to this new super low carb diet. I've posted a link here:
New Scale! The Fitbit Aria
Over the past few months, I have been having problems with my bathroom scales at home. One just stopped working, and the other one has been very inaccurate. For instance, when I would weigh myself a few times in a row, it would change up to a pound in either direction. Since my weight loss has slowed, this has been very frustrating. I would always just use the lowest number, but still, I never really trusted it fully.
I've been looking at the new Fitbit Aria scale, but I was put off by the high price. As with all electronics, I figured if I waited it out a few months, the price would go down. It turns out I didn't have to wait.
So, as I was walking through a local electronics store, I went back to the clearance section to see what was super cheap and to my surprise they had clearanced the exact scale I had been looking at it. I got the Aria for almost 50% off!
This is a really cool scale. I can program it to save all of my weigh-ins, send the data to my iphone, and track my progress with a graph. Very cool! Here is a link to Amazon in case you are interested:
The old scale showed me as 240.8, and then 239.8 on the second try. (1 pound difference on the same scale!)
The new scale was very consistent at 240.3. Hooray for one solid number!
