Weigh in Wednesday 2/9/11

Due to illness… I’m a week behind in updating this. Sorry to my fellow losers!! Winking smile Even though I have been sick I promise I have still been at it!!!!!

Still on the Cinch! diet with no problems. Woohoo!

The Gym… my breathing nemesis right now. LOL! I have gone to the gym a few times but I must admit that with this illness… this last week I have FAILED at making it to the gym. I went last Monday and Tuesday but then it was OVER. And the last 3 days it would probably just kill me. O.O

I really want to go… but I know I can’t yet. Hoping to get back to it by Friday. Really hoping. I think I feel worse because I can’t go. I would take a walk but darn it… it’s just to cold with this respiratory problem. So no exercise for me.

So… lets get right to it…

Ideal Weight: 110-115

Starting Weight Jan 3, 2011:
145 Pounds

Cinch! start Weight Jan, 24th:
139 pounds 10 ounces

5 day Cinch! Detox RESULTS

Day 1 detox weight:
139 pounds 10 ounces

Day 5 detox weight:
135 pounds 3 ounces

I lost a fantastic 4 pounds 7 ounces on the 5 day Detox!!!
Woohoo! Totally worth it!!!

Current weight: Possibly 134 pounds 10 ounces

Not sure. My scale is being stupid. >.< I replaced the battery but it’s still not giving me consistent results. I weighed myself 5 times tonight after replacing the battery and I got 138,137,136.5, 138, 135.8. Um… No. I definitely did not gain 4 pounds today. I will have to reweigh in the morning and see.

I am used to weighing myself every morning since I have Crohn’s Disease. And even the slightest dip in weight can point to a flare.

(Hmmmmm I could use a good flare right now. A twenty pound one would be nice. LOL! Just kidding!!!! er…. sorta. )

Anyway… little tip for weighing yourself. My morning weight is always dead on consistent. Very tiny fluctuations. 1-2 ounces… if any. I know a lot of people say that’s not possible… but I’ve been weighing myself everyday for 4 years and I can tell you my naked morning weight is the most consistent way to keep track of my true weight. I started my naked morning weight per my gastroenterologists instructions. So if you want to keep track of your most consistent weight… that’s how you can do it. Naked… after the pee. Winking smile

I REALLY hope I am able to get back to exercising soon. Actually what I really wish for is nicer weather so I can just power walk! Come on Ohio! Cooperate!!! and I will keep up my new Cinch! eating plan. It’s pretty easy and I like it. I would recommend it if your looking for something to try or if your stuck at a certain weight on another plan.

Ok that’s it for my Wednesday Weigh in. Sorry it’s not more exciting.

Until next time…

Great Job Carmen! I do the Naked Weight too, have for years! I come from a large family and have always had to watch my weight because diabetes is always around the corner! I weighed 140lbs 8 months ago and now weigh in @ 113! It is definitely a life change, not just a diet!

Hold steadfast gal:) I always weigh my least in the morning after a good pee too. We're counting points and I've lost seven pounds in one month with 2 weeks of that having a nasty cold and flu symptoms. Good luck to ya hon!

Keep up the good work!! I hope you feel better soon. Being sick is the pits. And I'm with you on this dumb Ohio weather. Soooooo cold today!! Can't wait to see my tulips. Poor little things won't be uncovered from the snow until July!! Have a great day.

Good Job, Girl Friend!
Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Yes, another Ohio girl here stuck in the snow. Congrats on the weight loss, but don't push yourself too hard at the gym as your body needs to get better first. I always seemed to catch bronchitis at the gym even with using the disinfectant spray first. Yuck. Oh, and never weigh yourself after taking a shower. lol. Your hair is full of water and it's just not worth the frustration. lol. I finally discovered my flaw after many crying spells.
