“Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” ~Emilie Coue

Transformation is making a complete change, usually to improve something. It’s an act of process. My transformation process began in September of 2011. I had started working for The Shaklee Corporation, the number one nutritional company in the U.S. in July of 2011 and in the winter of 2012 there was a chance that the corporation would attend a social media conference and we would attend highlighting Cinch a weight loss program designed to help people lose inches not muscle*. This made me nervous, how could I attend a conference overweight and talk about a weight loss program if I did not try it myself to verify that it works? In good faith I could not ask my blogging peers to try something unless I could verify for myself that it works.

At this time I began using Cinch with no direction from The Shaklee Corporation and I paid for all of it myself. I only told my co-worker and thus the journey began. I was never asked to take photographs, weigh myself, measure my inch loss or blog about my journey.  In fact, my boss was only told of my weight loss and use of Cinch in January! I was using Cinch for myself because I needed this body revolution for my self-esteem and health. Through ups and downs, eating healthy, using Cinch, exercising regularly, trying to sleep more and lots of hard work I have truly seen a body and mind makeover in myself.

Inch Loss Reveal

As a blogger revealing yourself can be hard to do. Petrifying and worrisome but raw exposure is how others relate to you and know you are genuine which is why I had to share these photos and numbers to demonstrate my transformation to you with more than just words**. Especially seeing that The Shaklee Corporation is looking for 50 female bloggers who want transform their lives like I have and of course, revealing the change is part of the challenge. How can I not do what I ask others to do? Putting these photos together I worried about judgment, feared what others would think but when I saw the change visually I could only be proud.
