Raising two busy boys on her own and running her own hairdressing business was taking its toll on Nicole H. She felt like all the vitality, fun and laughter had gone from her life. When she was introduced to Isagenix®, she wasn’t expecting the transformation that was in store for her.
“I resorted to stress eating and binge drinking and I became overweight, tired, emotionally depleted and despondent, all the while maintaining the happy facade for friends, family and clients,” says Nicole. “This was not how I wanted to live and I was dragging my boys down with me. I desperately wanted to bring back the enjoyment to our lives.”
Nicole was sceptical when she was introduced to Isagenix, but she was open to try it and find out for herself. “I had tried other shake diets and remedies before. Why would this be any different? But what did I have to lose? So I ordered my first 30-Day Nutritional Cleansing Program.”
“The first two weeks of my 30-Day Cleanse were uneventful; no extra energy, no restful sleep, minimal weight loss. I was disappointed but determined to give this Program a go,” describes Nicole. “Then, unexpectedly, I noticed a change in how I reacted and coped with the day-to-day stress in my life.”
“The nervous, sick feeling in the pit of my stomach was diminishing and the urge to head for that glass of wine or block of chocolate had decreased. The flow on effect from this was the weight loss I had so desperately been trying to achieve. Was Isagenix going to be the game changer?”
Within two months Nicole had released 7.2 kilograms* and decided to take part in the IsaBody Challenge in the Energy and Performance category. “I was feeling good, but I had no idea how good I was going to feel!”
During the IsaBody Challenge, Nicole released a further 4.2kg, lost 6.6% body fat and gained 1kg of lean muscle. While she made impressive achievements, these weren’t the things that excited her the most.
“I became excited when that nervous, sick feeling in my stomach had gone. My body had been adapting to the stress in my life,” says Nicole. “My sleeping became better and I was excited with the abundance of energy I had gained.”
Nicole has created time in her schedule to go to the gym and now enjoys exercise on a regular basis. “I am lifting weights and performing personal bests regularly and I am enjoying the running that I hated 18 months ago,” she says. “The bikes gathering dust in the shed have had a new lease on life and the boys and I are enjoying weekend bike rides together.”
“I don’t feel good, I feel fantastic! Yes, Isagenix was and is the game changer! Isagenix will always be a part of my daily life. It has not only given me back my physical health, but my mental and emotional health, too. The laughter, fun and enjoyment is returning to our lives, all because my boys have their vibrant, happy, stress-less mum back.”
