Shaklee #Cinchspiration Kick-Off

Today is the day that I put all of my excuses behind me.  No whining.  No feeling bad about my extra bulge.  Today is the day that I am going to take my first step to reaching my weight loss goals!  Today I will begin the Shaklee Cinch Inch Loss Plan to help me lose weight, lose inches and finally gain my confidence back!




And so my story begins….


I will be updating this once a month with my weight loss tracked and with pictures.  As you can see, right now my target areas are my thighs and my stomach.  I’ve always had a completely flat stomach and it really grosses me out the way that clothes fit me now.  I’ve never had a problem with this and I don’t know how to tackle it.  My thighs however, have been with me for a while and I know what needs to be done to bring them back to a healthy size.  I just need to do it!  The Cinch Wellness site has workshops {or classes} that will teach me about my body and what I need to do to lose inches and keep them off.  I feel that understanding why I’m overweight is important in knowing how to maintain a healthy body weight.


Current weight: Oh, this is hard. Okay, 160.  There I said it.  I weight one hundred and sixty pounds!


My goals: Cinch is encouraging the Cinchspiration team to have SMART goals.  Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic,Time-driven goals.


My goal is to lose 30 pounds.  20 would still be awesome but 30 is my lofty, dream goal right now.  I figure this is a 12 week program and if I lose just a little over 2 lbs safely per week I’ll reach my goal.  I don’t know what size clothes I’ll be in but I’m pretty sure I would be able to fit into my pre-baby clothes…but if not, I think a shopping trip is in order!  Before I get carried away with myself, I’m going to get off here and go read more about this Cinch plan.


I’m a #Cinchspiration Team Member!



Yay! I’m a #Cinchspiration team member!  I’m excited to have been chosen to join 49 great, inspirational, and funny women in a journey to lose weight.  Yes, I’m fed up with this left over baby weight and I’m ready to get moving and Cinch it!  Cinch a program by Shakelee designed to help women lose inches and not just weight.  I’ll be documenting the highs and lows of my weight loss journey with you and I hope you’ll enjoy following along.


I’ll be honest, I am completely petrified at the idea of being held accountable for losing inches/weight.  It’s not that Shakelee will be upset with me if I don’t lose X inches by a certain date but if I document the journey for you, you’ll know if I fail.  Heaven forbid you find out that I’m not perfect!  Ha!  You already know that, don’t you?  It’s just a bit of extra pressure motivation to stick with it.  Nervous or not, I’m going to do this.  The process will be documented, you will see embarrassing pictures, and you will hear details about my life that you never knew before.  Hopefully, you’ll be able to laugh with me and find a bit of inspiration to reach your goals too.
