With three children in tow, life can get hectic. For Carley Fidock, her waning health meant that life was especially hectic. Finding it difficult to keep up with her children, she found herself needing an afternoon nap to help her get through each day. Trying countless fad diets as a way to lose weight and regain energy, Carley never saw the results her health and confidence required.
Not being able to run around and play with her children took its toll on Carley, feeling she was missing out on an important part of her children’s lives. ”I knew my children deserved better,” she shares. “But my goals seemed so far away and I always found excuses as to why I couldn’t start or stick with anything long term.”
With her health struggles permanently in the back of her mind, Carley couldn’t help but notice her friend from school, 2 Star Golden Circle, 1 Star Crystal Executive, Hayley Riley, smashing her weight-loss goals. “We’d had our babies around the same time so I had been watching her weight-loss transformation for over a year,” she explains. “Not only did she share her 30 kgs weight loss, she also talked about her improved energy and this is what made me finally say ‘yes’ to the Isagenix System.”
Eager to start a new chapter in her life, Carley purchased the Weight Loss Premium Pack under guidance from Hayley. “Seeing results is what motivated me at the beginning,” she says. “It proved to me I could change.” Carley consistently turned her bad habits into good ones, switching her couch for her running shoes and leading a more active lifestyle.
Feeling fitter, stronger and more energised than ever, Carley’s children now have to work hard to keep up with her. “I just love seeing the look on their faces when I involve myself in activities such as bike riding, playing on the swings at the park or just running around the backyard,” she beams. “Having a mum who is not just present but also active in their lives is what brings me the most joy and encourages me to keep on track.”
Now 46 kgs lighter and a valued member of the 100 Pound Club, Carley’s outlook on life has changed in ways she never thought possible. “The Isagenix System is easy to follow and now that I’m incorporating more exercise into my regime, it’s so easy to customise,” she explains. “I can follow the Isagenix System and still go out for the occasional dinner with family or have a drink with friends without feeling guilty because it’s now a long-term lifestyle instead of a short, quick fix.”
Now 1 Star Silver Circle, Manager, Carley’s confidence has soared to new levels. Once nervous about being out in public due to fear of judgement, she now walks with her head held high. “I love sharing my journey with those who need a health kick,” she says. “I want to help parents to regain their confidence and health so that they, too, can experience the joy of participating in activities with their family.”

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.
