Well, it’s been 4 months since I’ve started the Cinch and it really has been life changing for me. I’ve learned so much about myself, losing weight, and how a support group is key that I just can’t say enough about it. It is awesome!
I’m at the point right now where I’m kind of stuck though… I want to get down to 150lbs but seem to be hovering between 157 – 160 (depending on the day). And for those of you following along that is a loss of over 20lbs and almost 40lbs since I started back in May with Wendy and her #iwillrock this challenge. Not bad, right?
Aside from losing the weight there are some major successes as far as I’m concerned and some of these might just be the best part about the program.
- I look pretty damn good for the first time in a while. Yes, I know it sounds vain but after seeing what I looked like last winter and seeing myself now I think it’s okay.
- I weigh the lowest in a long time. So long I don’t even remember.
- I drink a lot more water and a lot less pop (soda for those of you not from Michigan).
- I feel better about myself & don’t hide behind clothes that are to big.
- I exercise more then I ever have in my entire life.
- I really think about what I’m going to eat, the calories involved in it, and if I really need it or not.
- I’m healthy!
- I like shopping again!
- I am encouraged to keep the weight off and work towards my goal no matter how long it takes!
I may have said it before but I’m going to say it again. Cinch works. It truly is an great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is ready to start their own weight loss journey.
So let’s take a look at some pictures!
There is one thing that I wish I would have thought of a long time ago… one of my friends and #Cinchspiration team mates, Maribel, has a series called Wear it again Wednesday where she pulls something out of her closet that she hasn’t been able to wear in a long time and well… she wears it! I got rid of all my smaller clothes because I never thought that I’d fit into them again. Aside from that she’s a great cheerleader and is always doing something to inspire me to keep on going! You need to check our her post today! Go… do it!
I have to mention Sommer! She is our brave leader and is there for all of us on the Cinch program to support us, to challenge us, and to lift us up when we think we just can’t do this anymore. I was so incredibly lucky to have met her earlier this month along with two other Cinch ladies who I am so happy to call friends as well, Jennifer and Maggie.
I have to thank Sommer & her sister for taking this pretty awesome picture of us! We had a really fun weekend together and I hope that we can all get together again.
If you’re interested in getting started on your own weight loss journey and are interested in Cinch let me know. I’d be happy to answer any questions that you have and help you get started.
I did some measurements this morning and I finally have seen some dramatic changes in the numbers!
So here are the June measurements…
Thighs: 25 1/2
And here are Octobers…
So that is a total loss of 23lbs and 14 inches!
