Since joining Isagenix® in May 2014 and commencing her first IsaBody Challenge® in March 2015, Margaret has experienced a transformation achieving results beyond her wildest dreams.
Being announced as an IsaBody Challenge category finalist for Healthy Ageing made her dreams a reality.
“I was introduced to Isagenix by my son, Josh,” says Margaret. “For so long I felt exhausted from carrying extra weight. I was close to being morbidly obese and wouldn’t go to social events. I was missing out on my grandchildren’s childhoods, not to mention all the things I had planned for this time in my life.”
Time for a change
Margaret had enough of leading an unhealthy, unhappy lifestyle and realised she had nothing to lose. With her son’s support, she joined Isagenix with the President’s Pak, which includes the 30-Day Nutritional Cleansing Program as well as supporting products.
Margaret was amazed by her results: she released 19.6kg in her first 30 days. Throughout her IsaBody Challenge, Margaret released 10.3kg, bringing her overall weight-loss to 46.1kg and 275.5cm since she started using Isagenix products in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise, which is now Margaret’s favourite pastime.
For someone who found it hard enough to get out of bed this time two years ago, Margaret has completed some amazing achievements since joining Isagenix:
- Fun run for cancer research
- Fun triathlon
- 13-week weight-loss challenge with local community
- Running challenge – 60km in eight days
- Strength training
- Golf tournament – won longest drive competition
Margaret, who happily says she’s “57 years young”, will also be participating in a half-marathon with her daughter, starting a 4-week boot camp and has already enrolled in her second IsaBody Challenge.
At the recent Breakthrough Tour event in Auckland, Margaret was invited onstage to share her inspiring story.
“I was so nervous to do my talk not only in front of a full house but also in front of Erik Coover and Peta Kelly,” says Margaret. “I was so excited when people said to me afterwards that they were inspired by my story to get out of their comfort zone and to get started.”
“The best part of Isagenix – more than the abundant energy and new joy for life – is the simple ability to share my story and help family and friends begin their own equally amazing transformations,” says Margaret.
“I am passionate about helping others create their own stories. My mantra is ‘aspire to inspire’.”
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.
