Feeling unhappy and lethargic was Rachelle Phillip’s normal and as a result of her low confidence, she began to take it out on those around her. When Rachelle’s dissatisfaction with her physical appearance began to affect her marriage, she knew it was time to bite the bullet and make a positive change.

A mother of two, Rachelle had formed unhealthy habit over the years. “I used each pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted,” says Rachelle. “I gained weight rapidly and would eat even more to make myself feel better. It was a terrible cycle.”

After some self-reflection, Rachelle realised that how she felt about her physical appearance was deeply affecting her emotional state of mind. “After this realisation, I knew I needed to make a change to help repair not only my relationship with others but my relationship with myself.”

Rachelle soon found her inspiration via her husband’s good friend, Adam Nesbitt.  “My husband was following Adam’s transformation via Facebook and he asked me if I wanted to do the IsaBody Challenge® with him,” says Rachelle. “I was skeptical but I decided I had nothing to lose.”

Within days of joining the Challenge, Rachelle began to notice her energy levels increasing. “Staying on track was not as difficult as I thought it’d be as the IsaBody Challenge community is so supportive,” shares Rachelle. “Taking on the Challenge with my husband also helped me to stay on track. We were on a journey together.”

As healthy habits developed, Rachelle began to feel happy for the first time in a long time. She began to rebuild her confidence from the inside out as she smashed her health goals – and her relationship with her husband flourished because of her positive mindset.

“I can’t believe what I’ve accomplished and I can’t believe this is now my new normal! I am so thankful for what the IsaBody Challenge has motivated me to accomplish and for the incredible community that has come with it. I’m a skeptic no more!”
