Mark Transforms From Size 60 to 32*
For years, Mark’s doctor encouraged him to lose weight to improve his health and wellness, but he just wasn’t ready to commit to downsizing his 400-pound frame.
Struggling with a lack of energy and spending long evenings in front of the TV, it wasn’t until a close family friend called him and told him about Isagenix® that he began to consider the change. He researched the company, read testimonials, and talked to his wife before settling on trying the Cleansing and Fat Burning System.
After using the system for a little while, Mark felt more energy and lost more than 10 pounds.* He knew that Isagenix was what he needed to get — and stay — motivated. With the support of his close family friend along with his wife and grown children, he made the decision to stick with the system for one year to see what he could accomplish.
Now 330 pounds* lighter and part of the Isagenix 300-Pound Club, Mark says it wasn’t the numbers on the scale that kept him going; it was the milestones along the way.
“I knew from personal experience that if I stepped on a scale regularly and wasn’t at my target weight that I’d think I wasn’t successful,” Mark says. “So I set my goals on shirt, pant and belt sizes.”
First, he dropped down to the size he was when he got married. Then he set his sights for his high school weight, all along using IsaLean® Shakes, Bars and Soups, and regular cleansing to meet his goals.
He’s since surpassed many of his previous targets, going from a size 60 pant to a size 32*, and is now doing what he never dreamed he could: shopping in the regular clothing stores and wearing Wrangler jeans again.
“It was just awesome when I went to a store to buy my first pair of Wranglers in 25 years,” recalls Mark of his first shopping experience. “I had to bring them back and get a pair two sizes smaller.”
At 158 pounds*, he’s reached his ultimate goal weight and is loving the process of rediscovering life again.
He’s experienced many milestones along the way, but his favorite happened just a few months ago.
“I was walking through the store and my doctor walked right by me in the aisle,” explains Mark. “I just smiled and he came back after walking two aisles over and said he didn’t even recognize me. It was one of the most gratifying moments.”
