Wearing A Statement Color

Hi everyone!

I hope had great week and are ready for a beautiful weekend. 

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love the color teal! It is such a fun rich color. No mater how it is worn, I know it will look great. I love wearing what I call “statement colors” and teal is definitely one of those colors!

I must say this though, I am completely in love with a white pea-coat as well. Although who isn’t, right? It just looks so dressy and sleek. 

For today’s Fashion Friday I paired it with a teal dress, teal heals, a Vera purse and a white belt to tie the whole outfit together.

Its a Cinch to loose an Inch

Hi everyone! This is a repost that I wrote on my old blog back in 2010. A lot of people have been asking me for the my whole weight loss story so here it is! I hope you enjoy it.

At the beginning of last year, I had just returned from a 4 month volunteer program in Germany.  I came back 20 pounds heavier, only to find that my clothes didn’t fit me anymore.

It was time to break out my big jeans. :(

I went from a size 12 to a size 15 / 16.  I couldn’t believe it!!!!

I tried everything from the Makers Diet, the Lemon Cleanse, to just eating healthier all together.

After a while I figured that I was at the weight that I should be and there was nothing else I could do.

I guess you can say that I kind of gave up trying! I told everyone that I was comfortable with my weight. 

I kept telling myself I would loose the weight without any problems, although I found that it is easier to put on weight than to take it off.

That is until I used the Shaklee Cinch!!!!

I must say I feel so much happier and healthier now that I have lost all of the weight from Europe plus some but that’s not all, I lost over 13 inches everywhere.  I feel better now than I have ever felt before!!!

 Before and After 2

Cinch Starter kit

My sister Bonnie is the one that really got me started on the Shaklee Cinch weight loss plan. I never really looked into it even though I am a Shaklee Independent Distributor myself. I just thought “I am sure it works for some people but that isn’t for me.”

I couldn’t of been more wrong.  Needless to say, I gave it a try and I am so glad that I did. It has changed my life forever!!   With a 100% money back guarantee who wouldn’t want to try it.

Bonnie told me that she would do it with me since she was going to be going on a tropical vacation with her family!!

As far back as I can remember, every time either of us was going to try a new diet of some sort we always had the other one do it too.  It makes it more fun knowing that someone else is doing it with you! :)

My Daily Routine.

Shaklee Cinch Shakes

I start  off everyday with one of Shaklee’s four delicious Cinch Shakes.  I mix one scoop of the protein powder with about 10 oz of milk. I drink my first shake around 8:00 A.M.

One container contains 15 meals, 2 scoops per meal.  One scoop fills me up for 3 to 4 hours.  I will tell you that the first few days I was on this diet I felt like I was still hungry and I wanted to eat more. I just wanted to eat something I wasn’t really hungry at all.  Every time I ate something with the shake I was so stuffed I felt like I just had a thanksgiving dinner.

Each scoop comes out to be a LOW $1.30 per scoop!!!! Now that's affordable!  A complete healthy meal for less than a $1.50!! 

Cinch to-go shakes

Around noon I would have another shake. Shaklee also offers the shakes in to-go packages. It is supper convenient for when I am on the go.  Sometimes I will blend the vanilla or strawberry powder with my smoothies, I love it. It makes for a even more tasty meal.  (See upcoming posts for some of my favorite recipes)

 Shaklee Cinch-Meal-In-A-Bar

Another great alternative when you are on the go is the Meal-in-a-Bar. These bars are so filling that I  seriously can’t eat a whole bar in one sitting.  I just love the Peanut butter Chocolate Chip, it is my favorite!

I start to get hungry again around 3 or 3:30, that's when I grab a snack bar or a healthy snack.  I usually make a healthy snack when I am at home and save the Meal-in-a-Bar for when I am on the go or I don’t have time to pack a meal. Shaklee Cinch Snak Bars


I eat dinner around 6:30 or 7.  I try to eat a balanced meal with a meat, a vegetable and a grain or potato.  I try not to eat anything after dinner because it is not healthy to go to bed on a full stomach.

My days vary from day to day but that is about it!

I try to change  up my diet with different kind of shakes and bars but I have to tell you that I have not and will not get tired of dinking the Cinch.

Whether I mix the Cinch with milk or put it in one of my shakes, I absolutely LOVE it!!!

The Cinch is so creamy and delicious. I love the way I feel when I drink the Cinch protein shakes, they give me more energy!!!

This is my kind of diet!!!!

Before and After 2

I am now a size 6/8 and going down!!!

I have lost over 19 1/2 inches and counting.

I feel great and look even better than I did before I left for Germany.

I don’t work out but I am going to start walking now that the weather is nice. This is the easiest diet I have ever been on in my LIFE!!!

Plus, this is the most affordable effective weight loss program that I have ever tried!!!!


I highly encourage you to give Cinch a chance! I did and I loved it!!!!!

I recommend it to everyone that is looking for a SAFE, NATURAL and EFFECTIVE way to loose weight!

There are just 3 easy steps

1) Click Here to order the Cinch

2) Choose the flavor you want and have it sent directly to your house!

3) Save money by becoming a life time member for only $20 and save 15% on your first order and every order after that!!! 

You won’t regret it, I know that I didn’t!

Now that you know my story its your turn.

Try the Cinch and tell me your story!!! :)
