This week: Take Back Your Life !
An Office Manager, a Dental Hygienist and a full-time Mom ~ this week's guests made a commitment to take control of their lives ~ then did the work and are now enjoying and sharing the benefits.
Meet Michelle Caravella, Judy Abram and Sheila Battaglia
Stuck in a rut and discouraged, Michelle was determined to take control of her health.
Despite a healthy eating routine and dedicated juicing, she had reached a plateau she just couldn't seem to overcome.
A Facebook post by Peter Kaufmann extolling the benefits of Nutritional Cleansing caught her attention and got her excited again.
Isagenix sounded like exactly what Michelle was looking for . . . a simple, healthy System she could follow easily. She signed up for her first Isagenix Cleansing and Weight Loss Program right away.
Within the first few weeks she sailed past her plateau as the pounds started to come off. Not only was she shedding the extra weight ~ she felt better than ever before and was even more motivated to stick to the Isagenix Program!
Two and a half years later and over sixty pounds lighter, Michelle is amazed at how simple it has been to keep the weight off just by following the Isagenix Maintenance system.
Although Michelle initially had no interest in the business whatsoever, people insisted she share her success story. Enrollment after enrollment, her Isagenix Team began to build. Her new income first started off paying a few bills then kept growing.
"As a result of this income, I have recently purchased a summer home for my family which has been a dream of my husband's and I for a very long time. I finally feel like I can make a difference in people's lives and I wake up with purpose and passion now."
A Team member who has also made a commitment to change is Judy Abram.
Weight problems just seemed to creep up on Judy.
At 42, no amount of on and off exercise or dieting could overcome her poor lifestyle choices.
As the weight crept up, her mood, energy and self-image plummeted.
"I was depressed, unmotivated, angry and had no energy. I didn't want to go out because I didn't like how I looked or felt. I needed to get rid of the weight but didn't know how to anymore." says Judy.
Michelle Caravella's facebook posts about Nutritional Cleansing got Judy interested ~ but she made excuses and put it off. Even going to a family reunion and discovering that family members ~ who looked amazing and healthy ~ were following an Isagenix Program wasn't enough to convince her.
Finally, it was Michelle's facebook posts about the amazing changes that both the Isagenix lifestyle and the business opportunity had brought to her life that really got Judy's attention. Trusting her friend, she signed up for her first Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Weight Loss Program
As the excess weight started to drop off, Judy's hope, mood and energy shot up. She began sharing her results with others and they joined her on her Isagenix journey.
Now 25 pounds lighter and armed with the tools to maintain her new healthy lifestyle, Judy is busy building her Isagenix business part-time.
"Financially I have less anxiety about the future. There's no limits to how far I can rise in Isagenix ~ unlike my day job of dental hygiene. I love that now I can help others with so much more than teaching them how to floss and brush their teeth!"
Another Team member who has risen to overcome her challenges is Sheila Battaglia.
Sheila had just given up on ever finding a solution to her weight and energy problems.
With each pregnancy and passing year, her weight and discomfort kept going up and her energy dropped.
"I was so exhausted all the time that I was really just going through the motions of life. I wanted so much to be the fun, exciting, active mom with my kids ~ but it would take me days to recover from a day out with them."
A friend posted about their Nutritional Cleansing results but Sheila was certain it wouldn't work for her. It was her husband who suggested that she had nothing to lose by trying. Still unconvinced, Sheila signed up for her own Isagenix Program, then waited to start a 'group cleanse' with friends.
While she waited, she began researching the Isagenix products, programs and company. The more she read the more excited she got! Finally, seeing that there was an IsaBody Challenge starting, she decided she just couldn't wait any longer. She jumped in and started right away!
Her first Isagenix program results were so encouraging that she signed up for a second. "After that there was no stopping me. The weight loss was wonderful, but honestly ~ it was the way I felt that kept me going." says Sheila.
A year and a half and 90 pounds later ~ Sheila may be smaller but her life just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Skiing with her children, running her first half marathon and triathlon, hiking the Grand Canyon . . . "All the things I used to just dream about became a reality."
Building her Isagenix business and her residual income has been a bonus.
"I couldn't help but share my Isagenix secret with friends and family who asked about my change. I hadn't intended to start a business, but when something changes your life that much you can't help but share it."
