you get as many tries as you want, as long as the "tries" are contiguous. Let me give you the real timeline:

1) weighed in with clothes. Didn't make weight.

2) took off clothes. Didn't make weight

3) took off ring. didn't make weight

4) spent a little time cutting. made weight.

So in other words, the first three were one right after the other with clothes/accessories removed, which is not at all uncommon.
