Isagenix is more than a weight loss solution for me. It was the kick start I needed to help me on my journey to recovery from the hardest year of my life in 2020.
My second child was born in the first UK lockdown, and due to an undiagnosed milk intolerance, he cried uncontrollably for prolonged periods, which led me to suffer with postnatal depression, mood swings and poor eating habits. To cope I turned to hot chocolate and binge eating. I remember my worst point was Christmas 2020 – I’d put on weight, I was miserable and my mental health declined drastically, so on New Year’s Eve I promised myself 2021 would be a year of healing.
I was nervous but determined to get myself out of the black hole so, I signed up to Isagenix, I began gentle exercise by walking with my baby in his carrier, and I also signed up to counselling. I even ordered my first cook book, and I’d never enjoyed cooking but I found myself getting excited about new recipes I was going to make. Bit by bit I began to feel better. After 30 days I braved running, starting with 5k. It was hard at first, but I enjoyed the sense of achievement and quickly saw an improvement to my times and my mood. 60 days passed and I was on the road to recovery – I’d started enjoying trail running and increased my distances.
I’m 16 weeks in now and I hardly recognise myself. I’ve entered a half marathon and train with the Isagenix AMPED™ range. I’ve developed coping strategies for my mental health which don’t include unhealthy eating habits. Everyone I know tells me how energised I am, how well I look and how happy I have become! But it’s not just the big changes that have impacted me. I notice the little things too, like how I bought a new watch strap because my old one was too big, and how when I returned to work, my suit was so big I had to dig out my 10-year-old suit from when I first started my job. I could go on…
Isagenix is more than a weight loss solution for me. It is now the way I start my day, end my day and get the best performance from myself throughout the day!
