In this weeks episode of her podcast, Cindi shares her most recent “stats checkin” and the frustration & confusion that it triggered.
She also shares how she got past “the numbers” and corrected her mindset, through her subsequent thoughts (this is POWERFUL and it’s where many people “fall off the wagon”)
As you listen to the weekend ‘gut punch’ that Cindi shares – and how she didn’t let it derail all the incredible success she has been enjoying – you may be able to relate to her situation…

The whole key to handling these bumps in the road is to KNOW that “weird”, illogical frustrating things will happen along the wellness and fitness journey, ESPECIALLY when weight-loss is involved.
And when we KNOW these unexpected events can, and likely will, occur – we can be prepared to handle them by knowing what could be the cause of these ‘blips’, and that it’s the BIG picture mission that really matters when all is said and done.
For the sake of providing even more value and insights right here and right now – here is what I’ll share…
When “the scale goes up” and some measurements go in the “wrong direction” – there are several factors and variables that we MUST keep in mind that have a direct impact on total body-weight, body-composition and girth measurements.
Here are some of the key variables to keep in mind:
1 – time of month (water retention and possible rise in food intake)
2 – if there was a bout of constipation
3 – seasonal (weather) changes that affect water retention)
4 – increase of healthy muscle density (lean tissue weight increase)
4 – increase of healthy done density (reverse of ‘osteoporosis’)
6 – accuracy/calibration of measuring devices being used
7 – time of day the measurements are being taken
8 – consistency of person doing the measuring from one check-in to the next
As yuo see, besides the possibility of there being some actual “weight gain” – there are also explanations why the numbers may not be telling the full and true story.
That is very important to keep in mind as it removes the negativity that most people stir up in side themselves when a ‘blip’ like Cindi’s occurs…
