With the help of an amazing sponsor, I set out to try yet another weight loss diet. Oh wait a minute, did I use the word diet? What I meant was I was pretty sure that that was exactly what I was doing, that it was just another 'fad' program available to make the rich richer and the poor...well still fat. This product is NOT a diet. It's not a fad. It isn't anything but a complete NUTRITIONAL CLEANSE and REPLENISHMENT system. Replenishment is probably the best thing you want to read about when you are seeing the word "cleanse" in anything.
I have spent many years, and countless amount of money, sweat and tears on programs and solutions and 'the best thing on the market' to try to combat my ever expanding waistline to the point that I ended up on lots of medications and have had plenty of dark moments in a corner.
Anyhow I first heard about Isagenix through facebook of all places. I was bitching about being fat (still) and someone had gotten ahold of me and said hey I have this wonderful product etc (it was at this point I pretty much stopped listening). I have heard every line in the book about this is the best, this works, this is guaranteed (which in fine print always says as long as you hand over your first born child) and really the list grows and grows. I thanked her for the information, basically telling her there was NO way in hell I could afford any of it (not with my debt) and carried on about my way.
For the next few months I was hearing the name Isagenix over and over again throughout the internet, a few conversations and then a very good friend of mine brought it up again. Someone who has struggled with weight for a very long time, know to pretty much everyone as "Big Mama" caught me on text one day with a "Girl we need to go for coffee" so after some reschedules etc I finally was able to go see my Big Mama (oh how I miss the days when my real friends were around me all the time). So we will fast forward all the basics but I seen her after not seeing her for awhile and almost died right there on the spot. My "Big Mama" is a "Big Mama" only in heart now. She was down 60 CENSORED WORD pounds!!!! I almost walked right passed her. After a bunch of ear piercing dog crying gibberish girly "talk"(?!) she told me her secret. Isagenix.
WTF there was the brand AGAIN!
I confessed that I was contemplating it but so tired of being tired and she kept with the "Trac, I'm TELLING you, Isagenix. No joke."
Sooooo I came home, totally over the moon ecstatic for her. She deserves to be happy and love the way she looks and feels and if losing 60lbs (and I'm fairly certain more by now) is what it takes then girl, if you are out there reading, WORK IT!?!?!
I then spent the next chunk of time researching this product. I compared it to other brands that are well known from years and new up and coming fast fads which are so focused on sales it's pathetic, however I'm not going to dog the company, just say that if you are smart then research the actual ingredients you are ingesting into your body before you go around telling everyone that you are the best of the best.
So I do the work, find some answers to my questions and set out to find the girl that had once spoken to me before, only I couldn't find her. SO I put out an SOS call on facebook and the gods bless Angie, she responds.
We spend the next 2 weeks going through everything and working out some details and she completes hooks me up, like COMPLETELY (I love her to ridiculous bits).
Well I figure what do I have to lose right? I look at all ingredients, I see nothing horrible and the best part of all? ITS NOT A DIET!!!! Sweeeeeeet. I like the sound of that.
I had been contemplating a "cleanse" for a long time as well. I have several friends that have gone to Shoppers, bought some "stuff" and ended up horribly sick or couldn't actually complete it etc so I thought yeah that doesn't exactly sound appealing but if it's going to give me this little 'jump start' I need then maybe it's a good idea. I am SO thankful I was too afraid to actually give one of those 'cleanses' a go.
Not only did I find my answer with Isagenix I will let you in on a little secret. I worked out for a total of...wait for it...40 minutes! :) One time during this whole 30 days. I ended up with an ear infection/cold (thanks Z, mommy loves you) and couldn't jump around to the cardio so I just said screw it for now. I'm almost thankful for that because I was able to spend 30 days being completely set on just my food intake and preparing my lunch etc...and I STILL managed to misplace 16lbs :) Can I complain??? Not a chance. This next month brings exercise and a goal of sit ups for me so we'll see you back here in a month to hear more :)
Some other great things:
I sleep about 75% better than I used to (I'll TAKE it)
I'm not sluggish everyday all day
I'm more alert and able to focus better
Best one of all? I think I'm going to be able to do the "Pants Falling Down" dance with Theresa soon.
As much as I could rant about this product ALL DAY LONG I'm going to leave you with that. You want more information? Visit Isagenix or contact me and we'll yap about it all you want. There are MANY questions, I understand this, but this post was mostly meant as a BRAG because I can, I will and I will continue to do it again and again and again. This is by far the cheapest, less stressful, most rewarding and beneficial for my health and body system I have EVER seen. It will take quite a bit to get me to change my mind about any of it at all.
