Weight Loss Journey - Month 1

Hi ya peeps!

I've been avoiding this post all day long, but I can't procrastinate any longer.

You can read here where I started on my weight loss journey.

It has been a tough month for me.  I was sooo excited about this challenge that I had set for myself, and then on or about week 2 1/2 or 3 I lost steam.  As per previous years, I just wanted to eat whatever-I-wanted-thank-you-very-much!!!

There were birthday celebrations, there were gatherings, and outings and eating healthy and staying on track became a challenge... once again.  uuuuughhhhh

At my mid-month check-in that you can read here, I had already lost 9 pounds.  As I predicted, those were the easy pounds, cause I can loose those over and over and over again.

I also started on the Shaklee Weight Loss Cinch program.  It has really helped with making sure that I have breakfast every morning. I looooove the chocolate shakes (then again I'm a chocaloholic!).

I have added exercise to my daily routine and I am enjoying Jillian's Yoga (She's a tough cookie)

Earlier today, before I got on the scale, I took off everything that might add weight to the scale... my wedding rings, the elastic band holding my ponytail... ev-ery-thing.

Here are my measurements and weight on February 1, 2011.

Feb 1st - 169 lbs

Waist - 38 inches

Bust - 40.5 inches

Hips - 40.5 inches

So a re-cap of where I started and where I am today:

January 1st, 2011

Weight: 177 lbs.

Bust: 43 inches
Waist: 42 inches
Hips: 41 inches
BMI: 31.35 (yikes)

February 1st, 2011

Weight: 169 lbs ( lost 8 lbs.)
Bust: 40.5 inches (down 2.5 inches)
Waist: 38 inches (down 4 inches)
Hips: 40.5 inches (down .5 inches)
BMI: 29.9

So although, I'm up a pound from my mid month check in, since January 1, I've lost 4 inches around my waist, and about 2.5 inches on bust and .5 inches around hips.

I have a lost a total of 7 inches and 8 pounds.

On January, 19, I posted on my Frugal Mom x3 Facebook page, that I had lost 1 1/2 inches around my waist. Although I was hoping that the weight loss since then was greater, I'm ecstatic that I've lost an extra 2 1/2 inches around my waist since then and since I started the Cinch program.

I can't figure out why the number on the scale is not moving, but I'm happy I'm loosing the inches.

Maybe I need to step-up my exercise abit more.

Is anyone else out there on a weight loss challenge?

What's working for you?

Have you considered Cinch??
