I went to the doctor this week to get some answers as to why my throat was closing up. After some preliminary allergy tests, the doctor thinks that I have a walnut, almond and soy allergy. I am waiting to get the results from my blood test, but the doctor did advise that I discontinue with the Cinch program as one of the main ingredients is soy.
I am really bummed that I have to quit the program before the 6 months are over, but I have to do what is best for my body.
This doesn’t mean that my weight loss journey is over. It just means that I will have to go about it in a new way.
I have been eating right, counting calories (something I am truly terrible at — thank goodness for the Lose It! iPhone app) and staying active every day. I purchased a FitBit and it has been a great tool at helping me keep track of my steps each day. I am super impressed with how easy it is to use and how much smaller it is then a regular pedometer.
Thank you all for your support on my journey thus far. I am down another 1.6 lbs since last Saturday, and looking forward to losing more going forward!
