I’m four months into my six month weight loss journey on Shaklee’s Cinch program! Starting out, my goal was to lose 50 lbs. I’m excited to give my weight loss update after four months! Drumroll please!
A typical day for me now after four months looks like this: a Cinch meal bar and coffee for breakfast, no lunch (100 cal mini bag of popcorn for snack), a sensible dinner, and a snack in the evening after my boys go to bed. I have to admit that I’m not keeping track of my calorie consumption as closely as I should. Though I don’t feel like I’m going over them, I know how easy it is for those portion sizes to accidentally get larger.
Unfortunately, the biggest area where I’m struggling is regularly making time for exercise. (More on this in my Month 4 video!) I find so many things to do instead of going for a walk or working out at home. I’m a stay at home mom with two little boys and it’s hard to take them to do any exercise (they’re heavy, pushing them in the double jogging stroller is miserable), I don’t want to deal with tripping all over them while I do an exercise game or video in the living room, and I honestly just don’t want to give up my free time while they are napping in the afternoon. And then I don’t want to get sweaty and have to take two showers if I don’t get a chance to exercise until later in the day. But I know — I’ve got to make better choices and I’ve got to do it now. I need some motivation! Please, inspire me!
The good thing is that I have lost weight, 30 lbs., with 20 to go. My BMI has dropped by 5 and I’m on the verge of going down another pant size. I think I can do it by next month if I really commit to moving more.
