Busy Mom Drops 50 Pounds; Reclaims ENERGY, Maintains Loss with Simple System
Cougars & Cowboys Isagenix Team Member Crystal Elin recently shared her Isagenx Success Story as a busy Mom to two energetic kids. Read on to hear her tips for success, maintenance protocol and what made the difference in achieving sustainable weight loss. Thank you for sharing your journey, Crystal.
“I started struggling with my weight when I got out of the Army and transitioned from Wildland Firefighting with the Forest Service to a desk job requiring a lot of travel and a lot of meals on the road. Before I knew it I had gained 50 lbs. I lost 20 of those pounds for my wedding in 2011 and next thing you know it was 2015! I was a stay at home mom with a 3.5 and 1.5 year old, low on time, energy and patience. I saw my Army friend Tina Kantorowicz posting about nutritional cleansing on Facebook and it caught my interest. I was struggling with the leftover weight from both pregnancies so I decided I had nothing but weight to lose and began with the 30 Day System. It took less than a week from hearing about Isagenix to make the move.
I am a stay at home mom and I am lucky enough to get to spend my days with my 4.5 year old daughter and my 2.5 year old son. Before I was introduced to Isagenix my eating habits were pretty unpredictable. For a while I would be great about watching what and how much I ate and then I’d find myself skipping a meal, cleaning off my kids plates/snacks and eating a lot of junk throughout the day or on the go. Isagenix has made it much easier to make better food choices which not only helped me lose weight but has assisted with my energy and performance levels.
I’m much more active than I was before using Isagenix. I’ve completed three half marathons this year which is something I never thought I would do. I think that by improving my nutrition and enrolling in challenges I hold myself more accountable to my set goals and have met or exceeded every one of them. I’m a runner now, and that’s not something that I thought I would ever say.
My favorite products would definitely be the IsaLean Shakes and IsaLean Bars. They make meal planning so easy and I really enjoy how they taste. I also think that the Amped Power is simply delicious and I don’t know how I would have made it through my half marathons or all of the training involved in preparing for them without my trusty Amped NOx, Fuel, Hydrate and E-Shots.
Goal-wise I’d like to keep up running. I enjoy running and the accomplishment I feel after meeting my goals. My husband and I have already signed up for a 15k in February and two more half marathons next spring. I have recently shared this opportunity with my niece who is serving in the Navy and we are both really excited for her to begin her Isagenix journey.
I made the system work for me. I don’t have a perfect diet. I enjoy all kinds of food and not all of them align with my training or dietary plans. I stopped stressing out so much about the numbers that I saw on the scale and began concentrating more on how I felt, how much energy I had and how far I was able to push myself physically. I drink my Ionix first thing in the morning as a warm tea and I keep a pitcher of chilled Isagenix brewed coffee in my fridge and use that to mix my chocolate shake every morning. I’m usually drinking my ‘tea’ while I prepare breakfast for the kids and by the time they’re eating I make my shake and drink it while I get ready for the day. I’ll have a morning and afternoon snack with a shake or IsaLean Bar in between and have dinner with my family. On gym days I’ll drink Amped Power 15-30 minutes before my workout, and depending on where I am on my training schedule, I’ll include E Shots or Amped NOx. After my run I’ll drink my Amped Hydrate and/or IsaPro shake.”
