    I am new to listening to these pod casts and I love them. They really help me feel more connected to the company and those who are also living the oily life. Way to Go YL for doing this!!! Edina’s story isn’t much different from other leaders, winners, achievers ~ perseverance through adversity. I am enjoying her story very much – we are just getting warmed up.

  • Susan Green January 14, 2017 - 8:52 pm Reply

    What a great inspiration! I retired from the corporate arena last year and have realized what sitting at a desk for 8-12 hours a day for years has done to my body. I am now trying to recover and improve my health. So many great ideas and great inspiration to get through those down days. Of course my oils and supplements have already helped but have a long way to go!

Determination and being healthy in life gives you a wonderful feeling, not only to yourself but by helping others. That’s why I spread the word about my use on the essential oils.

  • Tracie Lampe January 16, 2017 - 9:09 pm Reply

    Edina is very inspiring to want to lead a healthy lifestyle. Surprised to find out she only spends 30-40 mins in the gym and most of her time is spent in the kitchen! I am off to look up her go to products to see how I can incorporate them into my daily life!

    What a great story.

  • Audrey Miller January 17, 2017 - 12:40 am Reply

    Very inspiring message from Edina! Loved how she brought out the story of her parent’s work ethic and how that impacted how she approaches all of life today, and how that kind of foundation will set you up for success. The other thing that really stood out is how important it is to surround yourself with those who will actively support you and invest their time in you. How cool that she has Pure Protein Complete before AND after a workout! She gets to double up on all of that goodness! Congratulations on the achievement of previously being named one of body building’s top 10 fittest women in the nation!

  • Robin C Saunders January 17, 2017 - 2:03 am Reply

    What a beginning she had! Parents not giving in to hopelessness, which would be so understandable is an inspiration to me. Glad to hear that getting into the gym was ackward to even for here. So glad she is a brand ambassador for YL!

  • Angie Brannigan January 17, 2017 - 4:02 pm Reply

    Very inspiring & motivating! Love that she points out the importance not only of exercise to stay fit but also the nutritional component, including her favorite YL products.

  • Rotalia Borja January 17, 2017 - 4:59 pm Reply

    Thanks for sharing Edina, your parents are an inspiration and I want to be courageous like them! I am a single mom who believes in leading by example. Like you, I spend more time in the kitchen meal prepping than working out and I use YL EOs in my cooking and muscle relief products too. I can’t wait to share your story with my other fitness moms and they will benefit in using the same EO’s. Take care.

  • Mandy Newhouse January 17, 2017 - 6:14 pm Reply

    It is always inspiring to hear other peoples stories. Thanks for sharing this. I am not into bodybuilding or anything, but I have started changing my exercise habits. I am interested in several of the products. Right now, I definitely do Ningxia Red everyday and take Slique capsules but would like to in-cooperate several other products as well!

  • Amanda Ludwig January 18, 2017 - 9:26 pm Reply

    I love this! What a great inspiration to so many people. She has been through so much and has overcome more then most of us have experienced. “Work hard, not to complain or give up” is what she tells her self and we need to remind ourselves daily to do this. Setting goals helps keep us accountable and she set the ultimate goal! I love that she is inspired by moms that are setting an example for their little ones by being active!
