Business Major Drops 101 Pounds* of “Fat Baggage” and Picks Ups Residual Income
No matter what he did, Jesse could never lose what he called his “fat baggage.” Even after all the diets and competitive football and swimming in high school, his weight never dropped below 230 pounds. When he left for college, the “baggage” became even heavier once the stress of being on his own mixed with the typical college life of partying and fast food. For Jesse, the ubiquitous “freshman 15” turned into the “freshman 40,” and by sophomore year the former athlete was close to 300 pounds.
“In a college setting people are very competitive and it’s in the back of your mind that you’re not in as good of shape as your peers” says the 21-year-old. “It kept me from participating in things, which made it difficult to fit in.”
Dejected, Jesse gave up on trying to balance healthy habits at school and his college experience began to revolve around playing video games and drinking. It wasn’t until a breakup that he decided to be more productive with his time and energy.
Introduced to Isagenix® by his mom, he was skeptical at first because he had tried everything but nothing seemed to help him keep the weight off for good. With each diet, one little cheat piled the pounds back on.
But his experience with Isagenix was much different. After his first Cleansing and Fat Burning System: 9-day supply, there was a noticeable change. After trying a second 9-Day, the results were undeniable. Soon, Jesse was down 31 pounds* and motivated to not only stay on the program, but also make some lifestyle changes. He began biking, lifting weights and even running, which he couldn’t do before. After losing a total of 101 pounds* on Isagenix, Jesse is now an avid believer in Nutritional Cleansing.
“I always knew how to eat healthy but I had never been introduced to the cleansing,” shares Jesse. “I think that was a key to getting rid of that extra fat baggage I’d been carrying around for years. It’s finally gone.”
Jesse is now a lean 189 pounds and sporting washboard abs—a great advertisement for his Isagenix business. After meeting other 100-Pound Club members at Celebration, Jesse feels honored to be among them and sees it as a great networking connection for his business. The newly-minted Consultant has had more success in the past year with his Isagenix business than with any summer job he’s ever had and views it as a great way to pay off student loans.
Impressed with the company and its business model, the business major plans to grow his business after graduation by targeting college-age kids and educating them on health and wellness.
“Isagenix has positively impacted my health and provided me with mental clarity, energy and physical improvements in strength and endurance, as well as a side income to live on while I’m in school,” shares Jesse. “It’s been the opportunity of a lifetime.”
