2014 Drop It Like It’s Hot

by McKenna Gordon on January 22, 2014

Now that January’s almost over, I have to admit I’m getting a liiiiittle bored with my New Year’s Resolution efforts. I can’t afford to get bored, because it’s time to get serious about ditching my pregnancy weight (and nursing weight–why did everyone tell me I would magically lose weight from nursing? That did NOT happen.)  I like to mix things up a little and I decided that an epic challenge with my amazing readers would be so much fun!

I collaborated with one of my best friends, the wonderful Tamarah Bartmess over at TheLightsomeLife.com to offer some great prizes. I’m talking $1,000 grand prize, $500 1st place prize, $250 2nd place prize, and a prize for EVERYONE who completes the challenge.

This challenge is going to be relatively small in numbers, so if you work hard, you’ll have a pretty great chance at winning one of the top prizes.

I’ll only accept 100 people. Since over 5,000 readers are on my subscription list, I suggest you register ASAP!

The challenge will go from February 1st and end on May 31st. I’ll give you a simple eating plan, a very customizable exercise plan, and personal support. Plus, we’ll be using some essential oils that address the most frustrating areas of losing weight:

1. Emotions
2. Hormonal Balance
3. Hormone Receptors
4. Blood Sugar Balance
5. Cravings
7. Metabolism Level
8. Optimal Digestion

But before we dive in together, I’m hosting an important webinar next week to go into detail on the above 8 weight loss factors. We’ll talk about how to gain control over all 8 factors, and which specific essential oils are scientifically proven to balance each of these factors. This webinar will really set you up for success in the challenge.

When you (1) eat whole foods, (2) move your body every day, and (3) heal your body using powerful yet safe and effective plants and herbs in the form of concentrated essential oils… well, then, the ONLY possible result is a healthier body at a healthier weight.

You’re going to feel amazing. Energized. Motivated. Lighter (in weight AND mood, stress, etc.)

If you’re ready to join me on February 1st, be SURE to attend my getting started webinar on January 29th at 9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific. Register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4701009599467824897



1. Must commit to eating a whole foods diet (I will provide challengers with some very simple, fast recipes)
2. Must use doTERRA’s metabolic essential oil blend (3-5 drops, 3-5 times a day. Ingredients are highly concentrated lemon, grapefruit, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon. On the webinar, I’ll explain how these plants so powerfully bring balance and ease to all of the body systems that are SUPPOSED to burn fat like a boss if only they weren’t bogged down by processed foods and body imbalances) as well as 2 other doTERRA products of your choice. I’ll share which two products I’ll be using as well as several other options on the webinar.
3. Optional: May replace up to 2 meals with a McKenna-approved shake (details on the Welcome Webinar)
4. Must be a doTERRA member on my team. If you aren’t already, I can get your membership fee WAIVED (Membership is simple with no obligations. It works like a Costco membership: members get to purchase wholesale).
5. Cannot use any other weight loss products during the challenge.
6. Winners determined by the following: 50% of scoring will be based on the participants why, how, and goals. When submitting your registration email and final entry email, you will be asked to explain these in 1,500 words or less and whether or not you met or exceeded your goals. 50% determined by percentage of body weight lost.

I am not a member of your team, but if you can waive the fee I’ll for sure join :) . How much is the metabolic blend? And is it safe to take while nursing? I’ll need to pick some of that. Let me know if I can join the challenge. Just had my second baby and I really want to get back in shape.

Hi Sondra! The metabolic blend is called Slim and Sassy and the wholesale price is $24.50 (you’ll get wholesale pricing). It is safe to take while nursing, but it does have peppermint in it, which in some people, can decrease milk supply. So if you already know you are sensitive to peppermint, it might be best to either wait or go slow with this challenge. If you aren’t sure if you are sensitive to it, then I would start out with a very small amount and watch your supply for 3 full days before increasing. Be sure to register for the webinar where I’ll go over everything in detail, including how to get your membership waived. https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4701009599467824897

Oops, I thought I was applying for the challenge, not leaving a comment. I tried clicking the enter challenge button, but it says that page isn’t there.

Link to join isn’t working for me either


McKenna Gordon January 23, 2014 at 4:34 pm

Fixed the link! Thanks and sorry about that :)


Danielle January 23, 2014 at 1:21 am

I am excited to join the challenge! I am very willing to join if the doterra fee is waived :) I can’t sign up however. The link doesn’t go anywhere. Looking forward to join!! :)


McKenna Gordon January 23, 2014 at 4:34 pm

Fixed the link, Danielle. Sorry about that!


Bambi January 23, 2014 at 10:31 am

I’d live to do it and it would be a great reason to finally try doterra oils; however I can’t do the metabolic one cause of the grapefruit: I’m highly allergic to it. So sad! Enjoy everyone that gets to do it though!


Mica Church January 23, 2014 at 1:38 pm

I am already a member of doterra, but not on your team, so does that mean I can’t join the challenge?

Mica, it depends on what type of member you are. Are you an IPC? If you are a Preferred Member, you still can, since it’s a different type of membership. Email me at kennalyn1 at gmail dot com and I can help you figure it out.
