Flight Attendant Discovers Runway For Dreams
Annie has always been a big dreamer. But, when her marriage suddenly fell apart she was forced to change many of her dreams. A single mother raising two young children on her salary as a flight attendant, Annie found herself reconsidering her pathway.
“I was sitting at my desk looking at my bank accounts and trying to decide which dreams I was going to live,” recalls Annie of Ontario. “It really hurt to know that I wouldn’t be able to live all the dreams I had hoped for my children.”
Even with her tight budget, she realized she’d be spending less money following the 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System. No longer would she have to spend as much on groceries or eating out; plus, she even had a more convenient, fast solution for her meals between flights, thanks to her high-quality, undenatured whey protein IsaLean® Shakes.
“I had been overweight my entire adult life and it was time to start investing in myself so I could be healthier for my children,” explains Annie.
When her Isagenix sponsor suggested the 2011 Isabody Challenge® with its $120,000 grand prize, this aspiring children’s book author knew winning would allow her to self-publish.
Considering that all she had to lose was “excess fat,” the 32-year-old signed up for Isagenix® and the Challenge and decided to go for her dreams (and her dream body!).
As she put the products to the test, she recognized that Isagenix just made sense.
“This wasn’t rocket science to follow,” laughs Annie. “It was all the things I’d heard over the years, but wasn’t sure how to apply.”
On the road, Annie began exercising in her hotel rooms, using the products and watching the scale dip backward.
One down side to her shrinking size? The cost of buying new clothes, but according to Annie some things are just worth it.
“Not only am I a fit mom, I’m also a hip mom now!” laughs Annie.
When she started the IsaBody Challenge, her size 12 flight attendant uniform fit well, but by the end just 15 weeks later, she had traded down to a size 4.*
Perhaps the best part of Annie’s transformation was seeing how it has impacted her young children’s lives.
“Before Isagenix, I was tired of eating chicken nuggets and fish sticks, but I just didn’t have the energy to cook a healthy meal for myself,” shares Annie. “Now I’m learning new skills and my kids are actually eating—quinoa, turkey, and even brussel sprouts.”
Plus, the kids even watch and help her as she works out at home. The children practice their counting skills and coordination as they do jumping jacks with their mom.
Named the first-place winner of the Women 18-35 Category of the Challenge, Annie is thrilled by how her 39.5-pound* weight loss has changed her family, and her own life, for good.
She has earned enough money to cover the costs of publishing her first book and is excited to continue pursuing her Isagenix business so she can publish the rest of the children series.
“You never know where this journey is going to take you. Isagenix is the solution to living your dreams and making your body reflect your inner beauty,” explains Annie. “As I was cleansing my body, I was also cleansing the negative self talk from my mind. I’m now a better version of myself.”
