I'm a mom of 3 kiddos which means my body has been through the changes pregnancy brings to a body 3 separate times. Can I tell you? It's hard to recover from that, physically speaking.
I began to hear this sort of conversation happen amidst moms that sounded something like "Your body will never be the same" and "You can't go back to that young body after you've been pregnant". And since I was seeing how different my body looked, I just agreed and went along with that school of thought.
But back in February of this year, I had started to think about making an attempt at taking control and taking my body back. Honestly, I wanted an easy way out. I started an essential oil regiment where I used Lemon, Peppermint, and Grapefruit Vitality oils in my water and saw absolutely no major changes....because I was doing literally nothing else different. I snacked like crazy on all kinds of sugary snacks and never ever limited my portions...and exercise? Pfft. No time for that!
From there, I began to suffer from a sort of body dimorphic disorder where I only ever saw myself as fat, lumpy, and gross. This is a dangerous place for my mind to go because I went through an anorexic period in life while a abusive boyfriend would tell me multiple times a day how fat I was. I have fought every day to not return to that behavior because I have 3 beautiful kiddos who watch me very closely.
That leads me to this experiment. I had watched this product being revealed at the Young Living Convention this year and thought, "Now. Don't wait any longer. Take the leap, take back your body, and set a healthy example for your little ones and friends." I ordered myself a box of Slique CitraSlim and waited for it to arrive at my doorstep.
Once it arrived, I looked the box over to see exactly what the product would help me achieve along with directions on how I should be using it. It was very specific and I took it literally. I had to take the supplement while eating a sensible diet and doing regular exercise. "Ok" I thought to myself. "It's time to go all-in...and here I go."
Let's cover a few more details on Slique CitraSlim before I tell you what I did on my own and show you my progress so far (I can't wait to show you!!!). What exactly does this supplement claim to help with? Check this out.
