Weigh In Wednesday 3/16/11


Happy Hump Day Blogging Buddies!

Not much going on at Prim Cats house lately. Mostly just waiting for the weather to warm up so I can get outside and enjoy the fresh air or get on the Harley and take off. Not much of either happening lately but I'm hoping soon! :)

I'm back on the whole food Cinch! (clickity click for more info)detox, cleanse, Fast Forward... whatever you want to call it. The concept is that you eat 4 meals per day, consisting of 5 different foods, for 5 days, and you can lose up 8 pounds in that 5 days. And you flush your system of all the yuckies you put into it. The foods are real and whole and I feel good. I'm a little hungry but not starving by any means so it's nothing I can't work through and learn something from. I am not deprived or anything like that.    

The first time around (click HERE and HERE to read about that) I lost 4.5 pounds in 5 days and did not gain it back. That was 7 weeks ago. I was really sick but I was the leader and had gathered 4 other people to do this with me so I went ahead with it. I lost the least, but I also had the least weight to lose out of the group, 30 pounds. The most lost was 9 pounds by a man.

It was a good week for everyone! :) So good that I decided to do it again while healthy and see how well I would do... and to get myself back on track. As confessed in previous weigh ins I've cheated a LOT. Mmmmmmm wine. LOL! But it's all good!

Lets weigh in... it's a great week! :)

Here’s where we are.


Ideal Weight: 110-115

Starting Weight Jan 3, 2011: 145 Pounds

2 weeks ago weigh in: 133 pounds 4 ounces

Current weight: 130 pounds  3 ounces


Total lost in 10 weeks: 14 pounds 13 ounces



WOOHOO!!!!!!!! It's a good week!  Thank you CINCH!!!!!

I've lost 2 pounds in 2 days on the Cinch! detox. I am really hoping to lose another 2 more by the end of the week. Oh my gosh... I'd be in the 120's again! I can't even imagine!!!! YAY!!!!! Oh 120's how I have missed you! LOL!

Some other good things... my pants feel looser. Now... you have to understand that I only have 4 pairs of pants that fit me. That's it. Not hiding anything there. 4 pairs. When I gained all this weight I went out and bought only 4 pairs... right then was when I decided to lose the weight. I worked at Maurices (a womens clothing store) as a second job for a year so I have stacks and stacks of almost new clothes that don't fit. My vow is to get back into those. :) I tried a pair of jeans off my stack of smaller jeans when I lost 10 pounds. But no go. So I'm praying that by the end of this week, my detox, I will fit into those jeans even if they are tight like no bodys business. lol. Fingers crossed!

I don't remember if I told ya'll I quit the GERMY gym. Well I did.  After being so sick for so long I decided that the gym in NO place for an immune compromised person. No place at all. So I will just have to wait for the weather to coopperate so I can get some walking in.

Thats about it for me right now. 
All's calm at the cat house...

Until next time...

Slow and steady, the way to go. You are doing great. I don't like the gym either. Every time I started up again I got bronchitis, even after wiping down the machines before and after I used them. No fun, lol. I think I'm going to read up on this Cinch thing some more. I would be so happy to lose 10 pounds! Keep it up Carmen, you are a great example to follow, and the kittie are fun to look at too. :)
