Weight Loss Journey – Day 1

Well day 1 didn’t go exactly as I had planned, maybe because I have a pretty vague plan.  But I did successfully avoid eating any sweets and as a result I did lose 1 pound, better than gaining.  So I better come up with a more specific plan.  Makes me think of what they say in Weight Watchers … “If you fail to plan you plan to fail”  Lesson learned.

Why I love being a Lemon Dropper

I became a Lemon Dropper on December 26, 2014.  I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils earlier in August 2014 but wasn’t quite sure what to do with them, until I asked a fellow Lemon Dropper, whom I work with, how I could become part of her team, best decision ever.  In the 3 months since joining the Lemon Droppers my love for essential oils has grown and grown.  I finally found what I have spent years looking for … a healthy and holistic way to make positive changes in my life; and, a group of wonderful women to share my experiences with and learn from theirs.  I found the place where I Belong.

I want to share this video that shows what it means to belong to the Lemon Droppers.  I’ve never been more proud of a decision I have made, buying essential oils and becoming a Lemon Dropper.  God has blessed me in many ways; my family, my friends and now being a part of the Lemon Droppers.

No Hot Flashes, Naturally

It’s been 10 days since I stopped taking my hormone replacement therapy and replaced it with the Progessence essential oil.  I’m happy to report no hot flashes, no night sweats, no side effects at all.  I am so happy to be able to stop taking the premarin.


Now, it goes without saying, but I will.  Don’t stop taking any medication because I said it works for me.  Please check with your doctor first.

24 More Days Until Vacation

Vacation is getting closer and closer and me and the family are getting more and more excited.  I was talking to Mom yesterday and Dan and I were a year older than my boys when we took our big family vacation to Disneyland.  We had such a great time.  I swear it was just like the movie “Vacation:.  We drove from Cheyenne to LA with Grandma Hawkins in the back seat between us.  Looking back it was hilarious,

29 Days Until the Cole Family vacation

20150220_164259 (1)

2/26/2015 Before Picture and Stats Weight – 261 Measurements: Chest-51″; Waist-56″; Hips-56″; Right Thigh-29 1/2

29 more days and the Cole Family will be on their first vacation since 2005 (I think).  We are all so excited.  So what does that mean for me?  I have 29 days to shut up that swimsuit that is sitting in the corner mocking me.

Even I can do anything for 29 days.  Starting today I’m going to follow Weight Watchers and use my YLEO (Young Living Essential Oil) weight loss protocol.  That swimsuit is going to regret the day it decided to make me look like Free Willy, that’s a story for another time.

2015 Health v1.2I hope you will join me on my 29 day journey!!
