Pounds melt away with Z-Weight Loss plan

This is the year to make your New Year's resolution of losing weight happen ... with a little help from the experts at Z-Weight Loss. For nearly three years, they have been helping folks slim down and maintain their weight. In addition to diet and exercise, medical-grade hCG is part of the plan. Make note, however, it's not the OTC or retail hormone that's untested and unregulated. (Though the FDA is making strides to crack down on such inferior substances.) Z-Weight Loss uses medically approved hCG that is compounded in a Scottsdale pharmacy. It's safe, effective and results are swift.

WEIGHT LOSS BEFORE AND AFTERClients are required to have a medical exam prior to starting the program. People of any age (Z-Weight Loss treats clients well into their seventies) who wish to lose 10 or more pounds are eligible. Thus far, thousands of your neighbors have seen success. Not only do you get the physician monitored hCG shots (or administered under the tongue), you get total support as to food and fitness. Plus, there's the heartfelt championing your success from staff.

There are tremendous health risks to not only obesity but also simply being overweight. They know this at Z-Weight Loss, and they want to help. They care. They offer a caution about buying OTC or retail-grade hCG, as it's simply not worth the risks. Call them, talk to them, let them set you up on a safe and successful weight loss plan. There's no doubt 2012 can be the year of the skinny jeans for all! Call Z-Weight Loss at 480-570-9200 or visit


Make a fashion statement with finery from Anne's Closet

marcie bradley of anne's closetCAVE CREEK - Fashion-forward women are not going to find the same clothes they can get anywhere else in the valley at Anne's Closet Ladies Boutique.

Owner Marcy Bradley, who opened the store Sept. 1, said she goes out of her way to carry the unique, the unusual.

"This is a small community and no one likes to go out and see someone wearing the same thing!" she explained. As such, she strives to support local artists, so her items are more exclusive. Many denizens are familiar with Andrea Lambert and her intricate beadwork. Along with Lambert's necklaces, there are many accessories: handbags, belts, silk scarves, Spruce Goose jewelry.

Then, there's the clothes! "I have something for everyone," Bradley assured. Like bling on your jeans? Check out Tru Luxe. For less flashy, there's Mavi. Into golf? Anne's Closet carries two lines of golf gear. For those into yoga, ask for "Alo," a very "green" line from an environmentally-aware company out of LA.

For the holidays, there's plenty of night-on-the-town attire. For more casual parties, the dressed-up graphic tees from "All of the Above" are more art than everyday. And since the new spring line will be introduced Jan. to March, Bradley will have various sales on her already competitive pricing to make way for more fun and fabulous apparel.

Anne's Closet, named for Marcy's sister, is directly south of the Safeway in Tatum Ranch at 29850 N. Tatum Blvd. Women of all ages are thrilled with the diverse collection. "I've met so many nice people in here," she added. For details, call 480-515-6199.
