He’s just an ordinary guy, but he’s done an extraordinary thing! It is with great pleasure that we proudly introduce our 2015 IsaBody Challenge® Grand Prize Winner, all the way from New Zealand… Damien F!

Like many transformation stories, Damien’s wasn’t easy. As a busy father, he was running a number of businesses and not always making the right choices when it came to his diet. Living a roller-coaster lifestyle, he was finding it hard to keep up with everything that life was throwing his way.

Damien’s Isagenix journey started with two simple words that confronted the truth about his weight. “You’re fat,” his brother said. It was that very moment, Damien knew it was time to do something about his poor health.

Not long ago, weighing in at 167kg, he made a start on using the products. The 40-year-old’s first 30 days proved nothing less than tough, nevertheless, he never saw failure as an option. When Damien looked in the mirror he knew he was his own worst enemy and he was dedicated to making a change.

“It happens in everyone’s life. A hurdle will come your way and you have to step over it,” says Damien. “Sometimes it might not be stepping over but going under it or going around it, you just have to find a way,” he shares. “I knew I had to find a way to get my life back.”

Building a solid foundation of motivation and commitment during his IsaBody Challenge, Damien soon created positive changes for himself and his family. It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t quick, however it was a journey of body, mind and life transformation. Damien also found the beauty of love and compassion for his wife, Kelly and their four lovely children- a passion which he had once lost.

“My ‘Before’ photo demonstrates the pain I was feeling on the inside,” says Damien. “This journey has made be a better husband, a better father and just a better person.”

With no plans to look back, Damien says maintaining a healthy and happy life will be a part of his vision, for life.

A huge congratulations to Damien F., our 2015 IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner.

*Weight loss should not be considered typical. In a study performed in 2012 by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 4.1kg with an average of 0.9kg of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix Program. 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. Always consult your physician before making any dietary changes or starting any nutrition, weight control or exercise program.
