I’ve reached my Cinch Journey Week #4 aka 1 month of my #Cinchspiration journey. It’s been a challenging week. Not for this program – Friday the 13th just seemed to get extended a week. Tackling one obstacle after another made it hard not to cheat. Exercise – it didn’t really happen. I skipped a few shakes/meal bars for some real grub. I opted for a cup of coffee over the energy tea a couple of times and I barely touched the snack bars. The real downer? I had an ice cream sandwich, a candy bar and even some cheese puffs this week! Talk about emotional eating. I blew it… Or did I?
This morning I went on the scale and I’m under the 200lb mark – 199.6 woohoo! I know it’s BARELY under 200 and I still have a LONG way to go but if I can come back next week and start that ugly 3 digit number with a 1 instead of a 2 – that makes me smile!
OH and those capri jeans in those pictures – they have been far from zipping up for well over a year! They’re snug and as you can see they push up the muffin top, but they got over the hips and that’s awesome!
My measurements have yo-yo’d a little, but I’ve slacked so I expected that. All I can do is buckle down and get back on track.
My mother-in-law was in from Florida this week and she was checking out all my cinch goodies. However, she has peanut allergies and asked about FDA approval. I had no clue about either, so I had to do a little digging for her. I thought I would she the information I was given:
The Cinch Blueberry Almond Crisp Meal Bars and the lemon cranberry and chocolate snack bars, do not have peanuts in them but are made in a manufacturing plant that processes other products that may contain peanuts. It is required by law that we include an allergy warning statement because of that. However, if your mom is highly allergic to peanuts then I say yes, forgo the Cinch meal bars and snack bars. She can still do the program successfully by following our meal plan guideines, using the meal replacement shakes only plus the 3 in 1 Boost and Energy Tea.
FDA doesn’t approve any commercial diet programs in the market place. Only weight loss prescription drugs which are full of side effects. Our program is safe and based on sound nutrition. We also have the highest quality standards in the market place.

I owe a video blog, speaking of slacking. I don’t know what the heck to record – any ideas? Please share! I’ll try to work on that this week. See you next week!
