Unexpected Surprises Takes This Mother on a Life-Changing Journey
Lisa is used to surprises. She has two children, a husband, a house and her own business—she’s always ready for anything thrown her way. What she wasn’t prepared for? Two more little ones!
After the birth of her surprise third child, Lisa gave up a successful painting and decorating business to focus her energy on Isagenix®. She entered the IsaBody Challenge® determined to lose her post-baby weight. A former personal trainer, Lisa was a member of Isagenix seven years earlier and knew her health-and-wellness goals were attainable through the Challenge.
Weeks into Lisa’s regimented workout she noticed she was bloated and unable to get rid of the excess water weight. Concerned, Lisa consulted a doctor only to find out she was 17 weeks pregnant with baby No. 4. Shocked and unprepared for her fourth pregnancy, Lisa discontinued working out.
“I thought…well this isn’t going to work for some ‘after’ pictures,” the 41-year-old chuckled.
A year after giving birth to her fourth child, Lisa’s life spiraled out her control. She was unhappy with her appearance, unable to lose the extra baby weight, and beyond exhausted. She knew something had to change.
Starting with a 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System, Lisa began her life-changing transformation. She was challenged even more when she heard that the 2011 IsaBody Challenge had upped the ante to $120,000 for the grand prize winner.
“I am a very competitive person so it was just what I needed,” says the mother of four. “I needed something to strive toward.”
Two weeks into her workout, Lisa felt like a whole new person. She swapped her daily five cups of coffee for Ionix® Supreme and Ageless Essentials™ with Product B™.
Lisa also knew that in order for her to place in the competition she needed to chisel and lean out her physique to match that of a fitness competitor. Her daily motivation sprung from looking at the cover of a book featuring a fitness model, which she left on her kitchen counter. She worked with her online trainer, changed her diet and put the Isagenix products to the test.
“I created a formula just for me. I took the supplements at certain times of the day when I knew my body needed them most,” she explains. “It’s like my trainer and I created the perfect storm.”
Her quick, six-month transformation flabbergasted her trainer, who’s been in the field for 20 years. The best part? Her hard work paid off and she won second-place in the Women’s 36-49 Category for the 2011 IsaBody Challenge.
Now Lisa is now pursuing fitness fulltime and competing as a figure and fitness model. She’s also earned her Pro Card 10 months after starting Isagenix.
“I was driven by my own ‘why’ factor,” she says. “If you don’t know why you’re wanting to shed excess pounds or why you’re wanting to transform your body, then you’ll have a really hard time sticking to what it is you set out to do.”
