Emma Bowyer returned from holiday and when she stepped on the scale, she realized her weight was at an all-time high. Gone were the days when she enjoyed going to the gym. Playing with her two young children left her out of breath and exhausted. She knew it was time to take action. A friend introduced her to Isagenix and she hoped it would help her succeed where she had previously failed. Her mantra became “New year, new me by Christmas!” And that’s where her Isagenix journey began.
Emma started on her Shake Days and working out and she quickly saw results. Not only was the number on the scale going down, she was more alert and energetic. The additional energy allowed her to work out more. Then she decided to join the IsaBody Challenge. Before Isagenix, Emma says, she couldn’t run to catch a bus. Now she runs half marathons!
Throughout the Challenge, Emma leaned on the Isagenix community to pull her through when she needed a boost. She says, “During November, a difficult month to stay motivated, I saw posts for recipes and workouts to keep me focused on my goals when all I really wanted to do was hibernate and eat comfort food!”
If I can do it, you can too!
She now uses almost all the Isagenix products in her daily routine, including the Energy & Performance range to support her, before and after workouts. Emma also loves the treats: “IsaDelights truly are a delight, especially when you need that chocolate fix or during a cleanse day**. Cleansing is a revelation! Following a Cleanse Day, I have so much more energy and usually complete my best workouts.”
One of Emma’s favourite things is the flexibility and convenience of Isagenix products. She takes them everywhere she goes, including on holidays. And now when she returns from holiday, the scale isn’t a scary place to stand on!
Emma’s story began as a weight loss endeavour, but it wound up being so much more. Yes, she’s lost 13kg, but she’s also cultivated life-long friendships, become a healthier, more energetic and capable mum, and gained self-confidence. On top of all of that, Emma was named an IsaBody Challenge Finalist and winner of £1,000 prize money! She is also in the running to win the European Grand Prize of £5,000 and the Global Grand Prize of $50,000 USD. So, what does Emma say to others who want to experience an Isagenix transformation? “If I can do it, you can too!”
*Weight loss should not be considered typical. A two-phase 2016 study published by researchers at Skidmore College showed an average weight loss of 24 pounds after 12 weeks. The study evaluated the use of Isagenix products in men and women for weight loss followed by weight maintenance. As part of the weight loss phase, the participants took part in a calorie-controlled regimen of Shake Days and one Cleanse Day per week. During the weight maintenance phase, the subjects who continued the calorie-controlled program using Isagenix products better maintained their weight loss in comparison to those who transitioned to a traditional diet after 52 weeks.
