Incorporating doTERRA Products

Each day I started with water and the Slim & Sassy® Metabolic Blend for a morning boost.* I used the TerraGreens® mix after a workout and changed my eating habits for healthy portions of lean meats, vegetables, and fruits. I reduced excess sugar and processed foods and focused on eating higher fiber foods. Each day I take the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® supplements to support my daily intake of antioxidants.* I incorporated the Slim & Sassy® Trim-Shake for a low-calorie evening snack.

Exceeding Expectations

In the end, I exceeded my weight loss goal by 10 pounds, and more importantly, I have implemented a healthier lifestyle for myself and my family. I have dropped far more inches than expected, and I am under my waist size goal by three inches. With the change in body fat and improved posture, I am feeling healthy and energized, and I no longer get up struggling with neck and back pain. A primary goal was to change my family’s nutritional habits. The new lifestyle has allowed me to set an example of healthy eating, and I cook more for my family! My wife and I are incorporating enjoyable physical activity in our own quality time. Being active has helped me keep and have fun running and dancing with my children. The lifestyle change has motivated many around me to begin their weight loss journey. I often get asked how I lost weight, and I am happy to share this experience with them.

Joe's Tips to Success:

Value Yourself and Think Positive

Evaluate and reduce life stressors and trigger points to make healthier lifestyle choices. Make a mental decision that you are important enough to carve out time for yourself so you can have a better, healthier lifestyle. Self-reflect on what you consider fun and build your workouts around what you enjoy doing.

Find Motivation

Keep motivated by surrounding yourself with support and healthy reminders. Ask friends to help you stay motivated and to join you in activities and healthier eating habits. Place motivating messages of encouragement around your house. When the mind stays motivated, the body will follow.

Exercise

Focus on increasing your upper and lower body strength when beginning your lifestyle change. Increased muscle supports posture, mobility, and is the body’s frame. As you begin to see results, don’t stay complacent. Push yourself to achieve goals that you once would never create for yourself. Confidence will build, and you’ll look forward to new achievements.

Create Awareness of Calories and Nutrition

Read food labels and choose whole foods that are unrefined with no added sugar. Familiarize yourself with serving sizes to maintain portion control. Clean out your pantry to remove unhealthy foods and create a shopping list of healthy foods and stick to that list.

Stay Hydrated and Well Nourished

Avoid drinking your calories and save your calories for eating nutritious foods. Eat high protein and high fiber food sources at every meal and increase your servings of plant-based foods. Take dōTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® supplements to support your nutritional needs.*
