I truly admire my sister, Martha. She not only has lost the weight she always wanted to lose, but she has been successful at keeping it off for years.
I, on the other hand, have continued to struggle.
I think the big difference has been, I'm always looking for the "quick fix" or that "magic pill" to do the work for me.
Name just about any crazy diet out there, and I've tried it.
So this time I plan to do it her way, slow and steady.
I know I routinely crave sugar and when the cravings set in, look out.
If there is chocolate in the house I'll find it, and then the binge begins followed by the guilt.
Who hasn't been there?
This time though, I'm prepared...

Actually this is one of my favorite oils, and I use it daily.
Using doTERRA's Grapefruit Essential Oil (affiliate link):
I add Grapefruit essential oil (affiliate link) to a gel cap in the morning, to my water all day long and to my diffuser throughout the day (I just love its fruity, floral citrussy aroma).
I even add grapefruit to my skin moisturizer.
