Finally is Cinnamon’s ability to boost brain activity…

    Hey there! I would love to look at your Watkins catalog but can’t figure out if you are in Illinois? If not do you ship? Thanks!

    • So sorry, I haven’t logged in here in forever! I am in Illinois (Aurora) but I’m no longer selling Watkins. (I needed to get a “real” part time gig!) Their website is great and you can directly order from there or you can find great deals on eBay (consultants sell at cost/free shipping for the points I think…) Tanya=Mom O Matic? Can I say that I love you?! And I wish you were a neighbor, I need a walking buddy come Spring… Way to go on your inspiring weight loss last year, that needs to be me this year or else. Michele
