So it’s been almost a full month since I’ve started using Cinch products. I’m hoping next month will be easier, now that I have a better idea of what I’m doing. This month I spent the first week on vacation, the second week getting back into a routine, and the third/fourth weeks figuring out what works best for me as far as recipes and calories.
So without further ado, here are my first month results, with
Weight: 219.6 (225.2)
Chest: 43.5 (44.5)
Waist: 38 (40.75)
Hips: 44.75 (46.5)
Total weight lost: 5.6lbs
Total inches lost: 6
What’s working: Walking. It’s my best friend these days, and Computer Dude loves going with me. In fact, remember that Silver Falls hike I told you about? I took him back the very next week and we hiked it together! He’s wanting to go back as often as we can, and as long as the heat doesn’t get too bad we plan on going at least a few times a month. I try to take at least a little walk 5-6 times a week on top of that, and I’ve been working with Mamavation on their 2-week challenge.
What’s not working: Old ways of thinking. The past few days I’ve been finding myself thinking negative thoughts. Instead of celebrating and being proud of my progress, I beat myself up over how far I still have to go. I’ve had to mentally tell those thoughts to “F*%# OFF!” a couple times, and I haven’t let myself down too bad.
Favorite product this month: I’m really loving the chocolate shake mix. Some of that with some frozen banana, milk, and a scoop of PB, and it’s a perfect breakfast! Actually, with this heat any of the shakes are awesome.
Something to share: I noticed two things this month. I’m not really seeing a difference yet, except that I have noticed that my fingers look thinner. Weird thing to notice, right? Glad to be getting rid of my sausage hands though. I’ve also noticed that my sweet cravings are almost gone. We have some sweets around the house, which I have not wanted! I think it might be because the Cinch products are sweet, but I am happy that I’m not pigging out on chocolates lately, or even wanting to.
And now, a short video from me (please don’t make fun)
**Ok, I noticed that my video isn’t working, so I’m working on that. It should be up shortly.**
