Before After Mary P. Location: Granbury, Texas Age: 60 Height: 5’5” Was: 144 lbs Lost: 4 lbs and 9.5 inches* As Of: June 2008 Mary Takes Leap of Faith and Discovers Greater Health and Wealth If anyone had told 60-year-old Mary a few years ago that she would ever enjoy exercise or that she would feel better today than she did when she was 30, she would have said they were nuts. Now this proud Texas native happily eats those words, saying there is only one word that can describe how she feels today — “passionate.” Armed with her distinctly positive outlook on life, Mary is on a mission to tell all who will listen about her story of health and wellness and the power of Isagenix® to truly transform lives and produce financial freedom. It wasn’t always sunshine and roses, though. Mary sheepishly admits to being cranky and skeptical when she was first approached about Isagenix as a business. Her response was a defiant “not on your life.” Eventually the stars aligned and Mary set aside her skepticism and took a leap of faith, deciding it was worth a shot. She had just handed over her salon business to her daughter after spending 22 years building it, so the timing was just right to try something new. It wasn’t long before she saw the benefits of Isagenix products, understood the unique mission of the company and the lasting impact it was having on people’s lives worldwide. She quickly climbed the ranks, reaching 4-Star Golden Circle, 2 Star Crystal Executive status and was even honored with one of the 2007 Women of Isagenix awards. What she remembers most clearly though was when “the gauntlet was tossed” at 2008 Top Achievers to lead by example and enter the 2008 IsaBody Challenge™. Almost reluctantly, she did. What most people didn’t know was that while Mary was relatively healthy and a rising star in the company, she suffered from a lifelong health issue that prevented her from exercising, participating in sports and even just a fun night on the town dancing. Not one to go back on her word and wanting to be a role model for her team members, the feisty Texan vowed that her health issues were not going to hold her back any longer. With great trepidation and apprehension, she found a certified personal trainer and began her journey. By the end of the Challenge, Mary was thrilled and amazed to say goodbye to 9.5 inches* and hello to a newly tightened and toned body. She went from doing a light 10 minutes on the treadmill to a challenging 40 minutes, plus weight training. “I feel better than I have in my entire life, and I’m 60,” shares Mary. “It’s exhilarating.” Today, she shares her story and proudly promotes Isagenix on the back windshield of her car. She wants to inspire her team as a leader and coach. “I want my team members to experience the health, wealth and freedom I’ve experienced,” she shares. “I want them to climb straight to the top.” Mary sticks faithfully to the routine that made her a third-place winner in the Women 60+ category of the Challenge, starting each day with an IsaLean® Shake and Ionix® Supreme, cleansing one day each month and getting plenty of exercise. “It took me a while to come around, but when something changes in your life,you want to share it with the world,” explains Mary. “When a very skeptical person experiences good results, you’ll have a fanatic on your hands, but why not? These products are amazing.” The individuals pictured are actual Isagenix Associates and not paid models. *The weight-loss testimonials presented apply only to the individuals depicted, cannot be guaranteed, and should not be considered typical.
