Completed my first 16 Week IsaBody Challenge: Believe You Have A PurposeTuesday, September 01, 2015
I've always been petite except when I was pregnant ( when I gained an average of 50 pounds per pregnancy - 4 times!)
Over the years I had tried various diet and exercise regimens, and I did enjoy a degree of success, but the results were not to the level I hoped for, and they were somewhat short lived.
I was tired, bloated and felt defeated - again! I was also becoming every moody - my excuse? Menopause!
I told my husband, "I think I just have to accept the new me. I tried everything but nothing seemed to work -- and it's so hard to keep it up."
I asked (again) my husband to read the ingredients and see if there's anything in it that's bad. He spent days reading up on the ingredients list. And finally he said, "There are lot of natural ingredients, plenty of herbs and the founder's from GNC so why not try them. If you don't like it or if it doesn't agree with you, then stop."
She gave me a few samples to try. I was skeptical and worried that my food sensitivities would prohibit me from trying the protein replacement meal (IsaLean shake). I told her, "I don't know if this will work. I have a feeling it won't but I'm gonna try anyway. " ( I was banking on the 30 day money back guarantee!)
They think I'm crazy to even think of joining the challenge - because in their minds I was already fit and small to begin with.
I was starting to believe it until 6 months ago.
That got me more motivated.
- Drank a mug of Ionix Supreme "tea" in the morning,
- Had 1 IsaLean Shake for breakfast unless hubby made omelet or poached eggs
- Hearty and healthy Salad for lunch
- 1/2 of IsaLean shake for snack or almonds (my usual snacks)
- Baked Salmon and vegetables for dinner; Or adobo chicken and vegetables
- 16 hour intermittent fasting. ( I couldn't complete a full day cleanse)
On the last month of my challenge, my husband surprised me with a 9-day cruise vacation. I was happy but at the same time told him that the last day of the cruise happened to be the last day of my challenge. It truly was a test to see if this nutritional program is sustainable and adaptable to my lifestyle. (I'd be lying if I told you I didn't have dessert. Life is short not to enjoy some simple pleasures, right?)
I was 123 pounds when I first used Isagenix, and had already released 6 pounds. The 16 week challenge helped me lose additional 5 pounds. Released a total of 11 pounds and 15 inches.
