I am so excited to have been chosen as one of 50 bloggers to embark on a six month journey with Shaklee Coorporation's Cinch Inch Loss Plan.
The Cinch program seems simple enough. I replace breakfast and lunch with a shake or a meal bar, eat a Cinch snack bar and drink some Cinch tea.... eat a healthy dinner and take 3 metabolism boosters a day.
This simplicity makes me feel like my goals are attainable. The shakes and the meal bar seem simple and easy enough to make quickly so that I stick with the program. I have to say, I am SO excited.
Now...here's my most dreaded part. The most embarrassing part, really. I have to share my before info with you all.
Ugh. That's tough. I'm definitely NOT proud of how I have let myself go...
Weight as of 7-2-2012- 225lbs
|6-29-2012 Measurements in inches|
I was shocked to see my fat percentage (as calculated by CinchWellness.com) so high. Nearly 60% of me is fat?! Ugh. Well... that's going to change.
Become more healthy and more conscious of what I consume. Eat to live...not live to eat.
Weight- 165 or less.
My biggest goal is to fit into my jeans from 8 years ago...
I am a little behind the other fantastic bloggers involved in this journey. I had to start a couple weeks late since I had to be with Luke in the NICU, and then I had to get the okay to do this plan from my doctor and his pediatrician since I am nursing. Thankfully I got the okay last week, so today is my start day!
I do want to note that I am not allowed to do exercise more than walking for the first three weeks I will be on the plan, and I will have to keep my dietary intake at a minimum of 1800 calories while I am breastfeeding per our doctors' orders. It's always a good idea to check with your doctor before starting any weight loss or exercise plan.
I will be posting about my progress once a month, as well as posting a video of my progress once a month. Keep an eye out to see how I do!
