RESET is one of our first sponsors, and many more to come. I REALLY want to see you in those smaller size jeans- I want to help YOU get there-- and I'm providing sponsors that ONLY have your best interest at heart. I feel like RESET will do just that! Here is what it is all about.


Problem #1 A Quick Fix. Dieters often drastically restrict their calories or food choices now but return to their old habits once they reach their goal. SOLUTION: Permanent lifestyle changes are needed to achieve sustained weight loss.

Problem #2 Fad Diets = Unbalanced Nutrition. Too often, diets focus on specific types of foods or nutrients and disregard the importance of everything else, leading to unbalanced nutrition. SOLUTION: For optimal nutrition, our bodies need a balanced variety of nutrients, including the right types of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.

Problem #3 The High-Glycemic Trap. Eating high-glycemic foods can sabotage even the best of diet plans because the resulting spike and subsequent drop in blood sugar leads to a more rapid return to feelings of hunger. SOLUTION: A better approach focuses on low-glycemic carbohydrates, which help to moderate blood glucose levels, leaving you feeling full and satisfied longer.

WHY YOU CAN SUCCEED: Thousands of people just like you have avoided these pitfalls of dieting and discovered a healthier, happier lifestyle with USANA Health Sciences. With USANAs solution, the exclusive RESET program, you too can achieve success. Better yet, you will start to see real change in as little as five days.

RESET is a jumpstart to healthy living. The program is simple. For five days you replace your meals and snacks with USANA's delicious foods. The program also includes USANA's world-class nutritional supplements, which provide your body with the essential micronutrients you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In five days with RESET, you can: *lose those first few pounds, *curb hunger through low-glycemic foods, *launch your healthy lifestyle by breaking poor nutritional habits.

The Next Step to Success: To keep up the momentum you have built with RESET, USANA has designed two simple programs to help make your healthy new habits a way of life.

Transform. To continue losing weight after completing RESET, replace two meals and two snacks each day with USANA foods and eat a healthy, low-glycemic dinner. You should also gradually introduce more exercise into your life. Once you reach your weight loss goal, be sure that healthy eating becomes a lifelong habit with the Maintain program.

Maintain. Continue to replace one meal and one snack each day with USANA foods and eat a healthy low-glycemic lunch and dinner. Be sure to keep active with regular exercise. Follow this program every day for optimal health.

Thanks Nisha for sponsoring us and for the great support you will be to many of our clients!

Recent publicity

I can't tell you how excited I was to find 2 recent articles written about Lose and Win Free Jeans! The internet is amazing, and you never know who may be lurking about to discover your business and give their opinion.

The first article was written by Lela Davidson over at Business Pundit: Jean Insurance Serves Micro-niche. - Thanks so much Lela- your opinion means a lot to me- even though I don't know you! It was great to see an article about my new company!

The 2nd article can be found over at: Denim Therapy. Denim Therapy is such a cool company in NYC. Check out what they do here.

Any kind of publicity is good publicity (even bad publicity- because it gets your name out there.)

Check out these articles and let me know what you think. Comments are always welcome.

The site is now accepting applications for sponsors. If you are interested in advertising on my site, please e-mail me at I've have already had some interest in this area- and thought I would throw it out there for everyone, before choosing who I would like to be sponsored on my site. Thanks so much! Soon- I'll have a t-shirt like this - but with all of YOUR names on it instead!!

Some fit tips!

1. I'm sure some of you have noticed the music I have put on the site. It is for a very good reason. Music can motivate, it can keep you going when you feel like giving up, it can get you revved up to start your workout, it can help set the tone for a great workout.

That is why I have chosen to put 2 songs from the Rocky soundtrack for you to hear every time you come to my site. Be inspired, be motivated and get moving! Put some heart-pumping music onto your iPod and just get out and go! (or stay inside and jump around and dance) :)

2. Accountability helps you stay on track. Stick with people that have the same goals as you. Message boards and forums are a great way to meet people who have either been there, are going through it, or are just starting out-- but either way- they all are there to support each other and to be supported! A few that I have found that seem to have a very tight community and are very welcoming to newbies are: 3 Fat chicks, Oxygen forums, and the Self Forums.

I encourage you to join one of these forums and share your story and your journey with others. There is nothing like knowing you are not alone in this- and knowing that it CAN be done!! All the forums are absolutely free!

Good luck and keep on losin' so you can get your free jeans!!

It's time for YOU to make money!!

Over the last 2 weeks I had a contest running and the prize was 75 bucks towards a new pair of jeans. I'm all for this kind of contest, but only one name is drawn at the end of the contest, which means only one winner. This time I thought you ALL can be winners. I've developed a "referral program" where you get 5 dollars each time someone signs up because of you. You will each receive your own personal ID number most likely your first and last initial and 2 of your lucky numbers. I have created a flier that I can send to you as an attachment and you can either put them at your place of work, on cars at your gym, at the front desk of your gym if they let you, give them to your kids to hand out at the park to parents, get creative! You are not limited to using these fliers, you can use and do whatever you want! Go shout it off a mountain top, put it on the jumbotron at a play off game, seriously- anything you want! For each and every person who purchases jean insurance, and puts in your referral number, you WILL get 5 dollars.

This is open to anyone, anywhere, whether I know you or not, or how you happened upon the site. If you are interested in doing this please e-mail me at, and I'll get the referral number you want to use and send you the attachment.

We will do this through the month of May. The person who brings in the most clients will receive an additional 50 bucks!! Good luck and let's get this game started.... so that you can "Shout for Joy" like the guy pictured above!

May Promotion

We are all about prizes and giving discounts and rewards for all of our clients who lose weight, body fat, inches - whatever it is that you are doing to get fit.

If you purchase jean insurance anytime in the month of May then you will get an extra 10 dollars given back to you, when it is time for you to get new jeans. So, if you buy a 50 dollar pair of jeans, insure them, then when they become too big for you to wear anymore - then I'll give you 60 bucks for them, instead of 50! So, that would be 60 dollars you could spend towards your next pair.

Reward yourself!!! You deserve it:)
