My Fitness Journey - Using NEW Slique CitraSlim From Young Living

**read the disclaimers at the bottom of this post**

OOOhhhh man. Y'all. I am beyond stoked to tell you about my little experiment and the results thereof. But first, I have to backtrack a bit and give you some details leading up to this.

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. 



Y'all, these claims are huge! When I read that, I couldn't wait to get started. (I also encourage you to check out the Slique in 60 program & guarantee. It's good, good stuff! ) 

Since I started using this, I have felt more energetic and have seen a HUGE difference in my mood, my cravings, and my body. 

How did I use this? While following the dosage directions, I added in exercise nearly every day and started being more careful with my food choices. I also started drinking A LOT more water. By "a lot", I mean around 64 oz. per day.  For my size, I only need to drink 50, but a good work out automatically guarantees I'm going to drink a ton of water. 

Exercise:  Friends? I do this all at home when I'm able to get to it (morning or afternoon). I've been enjoying the workout playlists that Refit Revolution posts on YouTube and will be subscribing to their on demand work outs through their website soon. (And maybe buying some cute workout gear, too? Yah. Probably buying cute gear too. lol)

I have had THE BEST time working out with these gals via technology and am seeing serious changes in my muscle tone and even my self-confidence & self-esteem. 

Goals: Possibly become a Refit instructor to teach other people the ways of family friendly dance fitness. Also, find a used elliptical and use that in between big work outs.

Eating: In my home, we always have healthy options on hand for meals and snacks...but we also have some junk food around too. Since I've had such a horrible relationship with food in the past, I wanted to be reasonable going into this experiment. I LET myself eat things like Peanut Butter M&M's or some other sweet snack from time to time. I think to deny myself all that kind of thing is going to put me in a bad mindset right now. The beautiful thing is that my cravings have totally changed which means I don't want to binge on any unhealthy thing. I WANT to make healthy choices and am totally fine with finding out what a "serving size" is on a snack food and sticking with that. Admittedly, when I ended up eating junk, it wasn't because I craved it, it was because I saw it and thought I would like to have it whether I was hungry for it or not. 

Goals: To continue to care for myself this way and make more protein shakes than I eat junky treats. (While still allowing myself to eat things like cheesecake...y'all...I couldn't ever give up cheesecake!)

RESULTS:  Friends, this is the difference 15 days using this supplement with exercise and healthy food choices makes. Ready?

AHH!!!! I can't tell you how much I love this and how inspired I am. When I first put these photos together I couldn't help but cry happy tears. Yes, I'm getting results. But I'm also so proud of myself because I'm doing this in a healthy way that honors my mind, my body, and my soul. This has been the most positive change for me and I'm going to keep going.  I lost over 3 inches in my waist line, 1.5 inches around my hips, and 5 pounds...ALL IN 15 DAYS! That is only 1/4 of the way through the Slique in 60 program I mentioned earlier.  WOO HOO!

Goals: To strengthen my core, build muscle definition, and focus on healthy food choices while maintaining my current results. 

*My results may not be typical and can vary on an individual basis.*



Check out the Supplement Facts and Ingredients...This is a product made of things that have the same Seed to Seal guarantee as the bottles of essential oils I have on my shelf. I love that so much.

  2. I've been looking at this. Ordering now for me. And looking into Refit. Is it Zumba like? I cant tell...

    1. It is Zumba like. I consider it dance fitness because Zumba tends to be more on the salsa side and this is a great blend of pop, hip hop, and others. They try to include everyone. Refit is free to use on YouTube and they have playlists all ready to go for you. It's a great place to start. 👍🏻

  3. I imagine that it varies on time constraints, but on average how many times per day do you work out and for how many minutes each time?

    1. Thanks for your question! I work out 5 days a week. Following the playlists I mentioned above, I'm exercising for about an hour. (Only once a day during those 5 days)
      I hope that answers your question.

  8. Hi Amy,

    This is a great testimony on how amazing Young Living is. I just started using this company in December and have fallen in love with it. I'm wondering if the Slique Citraslim is something you have to take now everyday or if it just jumped started your weight loss and you continued exercise and working out without taking the Slique?

    1. I only took it to get me started. Now it's about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I recently started running and doing a bit of weight lifting every other day. Thanks for your comment!

    1. That happened to me once. I just continued taking them as recommended. I didn't want to double up in the morning. I just ended up with an extra dose at the end. :) If you ever choose to try it and get concerned, Young Living has amazing customer care. They would be able to answer your questions for you and keep you heading in the right direction.
