I’m trying to remain positive and I’m still following the Cinch plan. No, I’m not following it 100% and maybe that’s the trouble but I have upped my workouts and no matter what I do I can’t seem to shed these last 10lbs! I’ve been stuck for a while it seems… funny thing is that the weight went down for a while and I was super close to my goal but it managed to get right back up. It’s like my body thinks it has to be just under 160lbs but not at 150!
I’m in a slump. I almost feel like giving up really… but I know that I’ve come really far in the past 6 months and that giving up should never be an option. So I am reaching out to all of you.
This is what I need…
- Help getting out of this slump.
- A stalker of sorts to make sure that I’ve been to the gym (3 times/wk) and to make sure that I’m not eating a bunch of crap.
- A cheerleader to push me.
- NO MORE Diet Coke. I’m quitting again.
- Workout 3 days a week minimum.
- Cinch shakes twice a day.
I am so close to succeeding that it’d be such a huge win for me!
I love the Cinch program and have never had such good success with losing weight before ever! It truly has been life changing for me… want an example?
Okay, I joined the YMCA and with that membership came a free month to all of the aerobic classes that they offer. Nice, huh? So I decided to do the HIIT (high intensity interval training) class one morning before work (it’s at 5:30am that alone should show some dedication to wanting to lose the weight). Here’s a bit of info about the class, it’s a timed interval class that focuses on 1 to 2 minutes of high energy movements with 30-second recovery. It increases your energy, strength and endurance. Doesn’t sound to bad, right? Well, I’m here to tell you that it was HARD. I somehow managed to keep up without stopping and finished the class, but… by the end of the day I was starting to feel it. It was good though because I knew that I finally had a good workout. The following day came and walking after sitting for a while hurt like hell! The day after that it still hurt but I went back to the gym and got in almost 3 miles on one of the elliptical machines and a few weights. Then the weekend came and I was back to normal!
I’m going back to the class on Wednesday morning. Why? I need to. I have to. I found something that finally worked that jiggly part of my arm! The ab workout was freakin’ amazing. Best of all… the instructor took her time and came over to work with me directly and show me how to do things right so the workout was effective.
This month my numbers haven’t changed at all. The weight and measurements are exactly the same! Good news is that I’m maintaining… bad news is that I’m not losing…
October & November measurements
I would love to hear what your ideas are! How do you get past the slump? What have you done to lose those last few stubborn pounds?
Anyone want to be my helper/stalker/supporter?
You can also check out my video update too! It’s not that good… I suck at videos.
I do highly recommend the Cinch program and would more than happy to answer any questions that you might have about the program or how I’ve done with the program.
UPDATE!! I wrote this on Monday (11/19) and as of Tuesday (11/20) the scale moved a bit. I’ve managed to get down to 154.
