Taking the dōTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® also added such an increase in energy in our lives! My daughter loves being outside and on the go, and it is wonderful to be able to keep up and catch every smile as she goes. doTERRA Slim & Sassy TrimShake made a perfect post- workout treat that kept me full until lunch. I also carry a large stainless steel bottle with me all day now with water mixed with a few drops of the Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend in it. Occasionally I add Peppermint to help me stay cool while I work outside. Halfway through the challenge, we decided to do an additional cleanse and loved it so much we kept the DDR Prime® and PB Assist®+ in our supplement lineup. I was so close to the weight loss goal and I feel very proud of what I accomplished in three months. True, the scale never hit the 204.5, but I did lose 8 percent body fat and gained in muscle. I sleep better, have more energy, and I’m much more aware of what I put into my body. Between exercise, nutrition, and supplements, I am excited for the continued transformation and the lifestyle that is here to stay. 3  tay Committed—the first couple S weeks were by far the hardest. The diet change was difficult. It was hard to turn down the sweets and snacks that were basically everywhere. But after a couple of weeks, my taste buds changed. I was never a big fan of cherry tomatoes, now they are like candy to me. It was almost like my body eventually re-set and realized how good natural food is and how great you feel after eating healthy food. 4  on’t Starve Yourself—talking to D friends and family who had tried various other diets, a common reason for failing was from being too hungry and then caving on the vending machine. We made sure to give ourselves plenty of healthy food. 5  lan Your Meals—if we didn’t plan our P meals for the week ahead of time we were doomed. Do the research, go to the store and prep as much as possible. If I don’t have a lunch packed, I’m probably going to eat something bad instead. If we don’t have dinner thought out when we get home, chances are pizza is getting delivered. / 9
