Mostly, we'll talk about making money, getting fit, and eating delicious desserts to balance it all out! I've still got 23 more lbs to go by July 18th and the weight is coming off slower and slower but Im excited to see where Im going to be. Tuesday, Thurday, Saturday, -30 minutes Stationary bike workout : 4minute warmup, 1 min of going the fastest I can, 2 minute cool down, repeat 1min fast, 2min slow, up until you get to 26 minutes and then cool down for the last 4 minutes. Before going out to eat go online and find out what items on the menu fit within your calorie limit. Remember 30 minutes isn't really a long time to dedicate to your health and fitness and as time goes by your healthier food options become a new kind of normal and you wont have to work so hard at it. Im hoping to loose another 8 to 10 pounds by the end of this month so check back in a month and see how Im doing in my next weight loss post. Im a mom of two boys and a baby girl and I have been married to the love of my life for thirteen years. Not only would these look great on any wall but they would make great gifts to close family members. AS a mom on a budget Im always on the lookout for those great gifts that really show that you care but goes easy on my wallet.
I met Karen through our Facebook group and starting seeing pictures of her weight loss and how dedicated she was to being fit.
The most rewarding thing along my journey is to hear that have inspired & motivated others to become healthy, fit and active. Thanks to Karen for being an inspiration and sharing her story with us as she continues on her journey to fitness and her 1st Duathalon!

On that note, bloggers, you have a chance to participate in the new Shaklee 180™ blogger program to reach your inch, weight and health goals! Shaklee is looking for 90 new bloggers to take the Shaklee 180™ Healthy Blogger challenge for 6 months. An opportunity to be chosen for a Shaklee 180™ video promotion and a trip to Shaklee HQ in California. For selected bloggers who participate monthly incentives, including paid Facebook advertising for your blog, workout gear, shoes, equipment, and more. So if you’re a blogger with a few — or a lot — of extra pounds to lose,  learn about Shaklee 180, then go ahead and fill out the Shaklee 180™ Healthy Blogger application. Six months ago, I started my weight loss journey with Cinchspiration with high hopes, but not really sure if I could believe the hype. I’m hoping to be chosen as next year’s Cinch Blogger Spokesperson, ready to step in and motivate a new group of women to push themselves past the challenges and their self-imposed limitations, so wish me luck! I’ve learned that I can make dishes at home that not only taste better than the restaurant version, but that are lower in calories, sugar and fat, too. So though I still have nearly 40 pounds more to lose before I reach my goal weight and a healthier BMI, I still feel like a winner.
I am in my absolute glee this week, not because the holidays are coming (though I am looking forward to some family time), but because I’ve reached 2 major milestones in my Shaklee 180 weight loss journey! The scale has been inching down a lot more slowly in the last month that it had been when I first started Shaklee 180, and I think that’s probably to be expected. I’m also watching all the other ladies who are participating in this Shaklee 180 challenge blossom into confident, self-assured women, and it is amazing to witness! My cross bite was causing me to chip back molars, so while they were difficult to afford, I had to do it. We went and started dating at 13 and then I was tiny and hot lol and he’s stay with me through my weight gain and depression and loves me for me.
I’ve been on the weight loss journey for a while now and I always stop to take care of someone else.
I love being a graphic designer and making things pretty from blog designs, scrapbooking kits, my home and so much more.

I think she has a great story and I thought that others in our group might want to get to Karen as well. Please feel free to reach out to Karen within our Facebook group if you have any questions. Like a lot of people, I was kind of bad about my eating over the holidays and I was lazy about exercising, and it took a while for me to get back on track. As my weight has decreased, I’ve also had to decrease my calorie intake so I can continue to lose, and it took some tweaking for me to get it right. Like the first program, you’ll receive 6 months worth of products to help you take back your health.
Six months later, I feel like a new person inside and out, 45 pounds lighter, but more importantly, with a much stronger spirit and self-confidence through the roof! Still though, I have clothes in my closet in size 12 and 10 that I’ve bought recently as motivation to keep going. As a result, I received a 6-month supply of Cinch products along with online support and incentives as I documented my journey. I threw my name in the hat for a chance to be one of 50 bloggers who’d get to use the Shaklee 180 program for 6 months. I’ve lost a total of 44 pounds on the Shaklee 180 program in a little less than 6 months!
The Shaklee 180 smoothees and meal bars are convenient, but the thing about the plan that helped me more than anything else was having to choose my own, healthy, dinner. And I have Shaklee, team leader Sommer Poquette and the 49 other ladies who began this journey, and the 30+ who have completed it. I went from a woman who almost never allowed anyone to take full body photos (the one shown above is one of only a handful) to one who proudly, excitedly posts outfit of the day photos each week. As a result, I have received a 6-month supply of Shaklee 180 products along with online support and incentives as I document my journey.
I started this journey just hoping that, for once, I’d be able to stick with a weight loss program. As a result, I have received a 6-month supply of Cinch products along with online support and incentives as I document my journey. The shock to my system when I went from eating crap all the time to eating much healthier foods and from being basically sedentary to exercising for 45-90 minutes 4-5 days a week was bound to make me some lose some weight in a hurry at first. Life has gotten crazy busy all of a sudden, but I wanted to share how I’m doing on my Shaklee 180 journey to this point. They haven’t moved nearly as much as I’d like, but progress is progress, right? The FitBit is tiny and discreet, and it will track my steps, how many flights of stairs I climb (which will be interesting to see, since I live in a third-floor walkup), how many calories I burn throughout the day, and even how well I sleep. When you have to look at yourself every day, the changes can seem really small and disappointing. They sincerely motivate me to continue even on days when I just don’t feel like it, or when I feel like eating lots of pizza or cake. In spite of the fact that I have failed to exercise as much as I should, it looks like sticking strictly within my daily calorie limits is paying off, because I’ve reached a milestone.
So I’m going to pat myself on the back for a bit, then get back on the horse, better and stronger than before.
As a result, I will receive a 6-month supply of Shaklee 180 products along with online support and incentives as I document my journey.
I’d always been small in high school, but after having a child and dealing with postpartum depression, I easily packed on the pounds. My braces make it hard to eat pasta, as it seems to act like glue on them, so I dont really eat pasta much at all. Now, more than 7 months later, I am 49 pounds lighter, 24 inches smaller, and I’m a winner!
I am still in awe, because all the ladies who remained in the program did such an amazing job, and we all supported each other throughout the journey. I never thought I was really ready to lose the weight I’d be wanting to lose for years,  but I was. Results and experiences from the Shaklee 180 Program are unique for each person, so results may vary.


I thought I just didn’t have the energy to eat healthier foods or exercise regularly. If you want to know how I did it, feel free to scroll through all my Cinchspiration posts to see the transformation.
Six months ago, I skipped breakfast nearly every day, and when I did eat, I typically ate crap loaded with sugar, simple carbs, fat and failure. After doing that for the first few months and waiting for my body to get used to the reduced calorie intake, I learned which foods to choose, so that even on days when I’m away from home and not able to grab a Cinch meal, I can still choose healthier options. I especially want to thank women like Maribel, Brooke, Maggie, Mandee and a couple of others who were particularly supportive and always trying to motivate all of us to do our best.
In a few short months, I have transformed from a woman who was faking confidence to one who actually is confident. My 30th birthday is in four days (gasp!), and my health is the best birthday present I could ever receive. But my encounter with the nurses reminded me of how far I’ve come and that I should be proud of that. Now that school is back in session and as a family we have so much to do, there are a lot of nights when we eat takeout. Its a great way to get custom workouts just for you and your specific needs and not have to leave home to do it.
All I really want to do now is tone everything up and convert any remaining fat to muscle, particularly around my belly, back and arms. And even better, if I had to eat like this for the rest of my life, I’d be perfectly OK with that. People following the weight loss portion of the Shaklee 180 program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds a week. My goal for the 6-month period was 40 pounds, and I still have more than a week left before it’s officially over, so I’m pretty darn proud of myself! I feel like a completely different person on the outside, but more importantly, on the inside, too. Last time I weight this much last year I was so focused on just on the scale and sometimes I would only eat like 900 calories a day all week long. I’ve come to regard sweets like cupcakes, cookies and ice cream as very occasional treats rather than staples of my diet. People following the weight loss portion of Shaklee 180 can expect to lose 1-2 pounds a week. Because I’ve still got some problem areas to work on and quite a bit more weight to lose. My older 2 boys were in school, so after dropping them off, I would put him in the stroller and off we’d go.
My aunt and grandma have started walking (even with replaced knees and cancer, she’s out there walking).
I didn't think I really looked different until I looked up my before pictures I took two months ago, to do this post and as I started putting the pictures side by side and equaling the scale of me in the photo I got the biggest grin on my face. But cardio is FUN for me (Zumba, anyone?) and strength training, for the most part, is not.
In fact, all of the ladies who participated the first time are eligible to apply again, and I’m seriously considering doing just that. I dont use canned foods other than tomatoes and occasionally beans for chili (I usually use dry beans). I LOVED having the support of so many other bloggers who shared a common goal, and I’d love to do it again! I would carry it outside so I could spend time in fresh air while my boys could play soccer or jump on our trampoline in the backyard! My boys got to see me being healthy, making time for important things to me, and of course, this got them into fitness as well.
