Claudia and Ian Silk had struggled with their weight for years, trying countless programs and diets in an attempt to reach their desired health goals. While the pair would often lose the excess weight, they discovered they would struggle with their energy levels and eventually gain the weight back. Frustrated with their results, they were on a mission to alter their lifestyle and achieve long-term health.
Claudia was introduced to Isagenix® through her sister, 2 Star Golden Circle, 1 Star Crystal Executive, Gabrielle Rothel. Having also struggled with her weight, Gabi raved to Claudia about the Isagenix products. Claudia however was not interested. “I thought it was just another fad that Gabi had discovered,” laughs Claudia. “To be honest, it was the 30-Day Guarantee that convinced me to give it a go. I had the intention of trying the products for two weeks then sending them back as a return.”
Intent on returning the products, Claudia was surprised when she began to witness results. “It wasn’t just the fact that I was releasing excess weight,” shares Claudia. “I was feeling energetic, sleeping better and my cravings for certain foods were diminishing. My husband, Ian, was excited by my results and decided to give the products a go for himself.”
It wasn’t long before Ian was experiencing similar results to Claudia. The couple began exercising and making healthier lifestyle choices. “The Isagenix products helped so much with cravings,” explains Ian. “We were so excited by our progress and wondered what it was about the products that made them so great. We researched the products thoroughly and learnt as much as we could about them. For the first time, we realised this could be a long term solution.”
Becoming involved in the Isagenix community is still a big part of the couple’s motivation, particularly after joining the 100 Pound Club. “We never want to find ourselves in a dark place again,” shares Claudia. “There’s no looking back now and the Isagenix community helps lift us up and motivates us when we doubt ourselves or hit a wall.”
Their lifestyle changes now allow the couple to participate in activities that they struggled with in the past. “It’s the little things that mean the most to us,” says Claudia. “For Ian, running on a treadmill and participating in sports he hasn’t been able to play since he was a child is what lights him up. For me, it’s being able to walk into a store knowing clothes will fit.”
With their motivation at an all-time high, the couple have incorporated Isagenix into their new lifestyle, regularly challenging themselves by completing 30-Day Programs. “It helps us to keep our mindset in the right place,” says Claudia. “A 30-Day Program challenges us, which allows our motivation to flourish and be at an all-time high.”
“In the past, we had tried everything to achieve our goal of losing weight but Isagenix has taught us the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Releasing over 45.5 kgs each and joining the 100 Pound Club community reminds us every day how far we have come and motivates us to never give up, no matter what obstacles we may perceive to be standing in our way.”
Weight-loss results depicted here should not be construed as typical or average. In a study performed in 2012 by University at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 4.1 kg with an average of 0.9 kg of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix System. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet.
