I am not your model Isagenix client and have found myself cheating more than I have stuck to the meal program. I have however, been successful in dropping 13 pounds and a few inches. The best part is that I lost those 13 pounds and then went on an eating and drinking binge between weekend vacations and dinner nights at our local Moose.
I thought for sure that I had put the 13 pounds back on and when I reluctantly stepped on the scale the other day, I was AMAZED and so happy that I was holding at 13 lost and not putting weight back on.
That pumped me up and made me want to keep going and get serious about this again. The problem is the darling husband. He is less than amused with me spending money on this each month and I think it is because somehow I set myself up on an autoship for some astronomical amount of money. It would not be that bad if I could just get the autoship correct. My meals on Isagenix are less than $5.00 each and I know for a fact that you cannot find a healthy lunch for that amount anywhere.
I don't want to give up and quit because I have seen firsthand how Isagenix can help and how it has help me. It is not just the weight loss, but is also me sleeping better at night, waking up chipper and ready to tackle the day, not being as stressed out as I was and just overall all around feeling better.
You know what they say, "Where there is a will there is a way!" I will find a way!
I am not a trend setter by any means, but if I see something "new" and if it looks interesting enough I just might want to give it a try.
Not everyone may know this about me, but I think I have tried just about ALL direct sales companies and have not been successful at any of them.
When I found Isagenix, I was not looking to replace my income and I was not looking to become a distributor. I ran into a friend who had been on it for a few months, shared her results with me and I knew that it was something I had to try.
I contacted her peeps and eventually ordered. I have never been more amazed with a cleanse + fat burning product ever! Not only am I losing weight, but I feel amazing. I have more energy then I sometimes know what to do with. Getting out of bed at 3:45 am is not as much of a problem for me anymore and I don't feel as If I am starving myself.
Since I have started Isagenix I have never felt better. I have shared with all my friends and family and everyone says that it is not worth the price. That is ok. One day I will be able to say I told you so!
What is weird is that I look forward to cleanse days!
I spent the evening watching my kids eat and smelling their food, which was not as bad as I thought. I tried to laugh about it. I had just a slight headache when I headed to bed, but I woke up feeling pretty darn good.
Day two of Isagenix cleanse
I woke up feeling slightly energized and feeling like I had a little pep in my step.
I have had small bouts with a growling tummy, but I just keep drinking that water. I feel kind of gassy and full and I don't know why, but hoping the fullness feeling goes away because it is in my stomach and my waist band is tight.
I am more annoyed at Sprint than I am at my being hungry. They have the nerve to keep reminding me that my old cell is worth a whopping $13.00. Bite it! I am keeping it at that price.
Day 1 of cleanse
Today is my first day on the Isogenix cleanse. So far not too bad and I am sure it will get easier.
We were away from the house all holiday weekend and so this morning I was in a bit of a rush trying to get everything ready for Danny and I. I ended up forgetting the IsoFlush and so I don’t know how that is going to affect day one.
So far I have had one cleanse drink and one snack. The drink itself is not that bad, but the snacks are HORRIBLE. I am hoping that I will get used to them or maybe I will get used to not eating and won't need to eat them.
It's "lunch time" and I just had my second serving of cleanse. I have had a few moments where I have felt hungry, but what I will do is just guzzle some water. I even had a cup of green tea to give me a little ooomph.
Being bored while cleansing is never good. That is when I want to hunt down food. I am holding strong, knowing that the hungry thoughts will go away.
This is going to sound weird and whenever I have brought this up in conversation, no one ever understands what I am talking about, but here it goes. When I am hungry, I start to get these pains in my shoulders which I refer to as gas pains. I have no idea what they are or why I get them. Why would I hurt in my shoulders when I am hungry? Makes no sense.
The husband just found out that he gets NO dinner and NO beer for two days and he may just end up hurting someone.
It was just snack time and let me tell you, those little wafers are not bad when you are STARVING!
I am 10 minutes away from more cleanse and an accelerator and also going home. Almost made it through day 1. I hope the kids don't expect me to make dinner because I don't think I can trust myself around food.
So the box of Isagenix goodies was on my kitchen table when I got home from work last night. I was so excited and felt like I should have started doing something. My official start date will be Monday and yes I know that Monday is a holiday but I want to stay on track with my friend and she cleanses on Monday's and Tuesday's.
I did tear open the box and sorted through all the fun stuff that I got. I will spend the next few days planning out my cleanse. My excitement must have been pouring out because Danny asked if there was enough for both of us! Yay! That was so cool. I am happy to hear that he wants to do this with me. He is not doing it for the weight loss , but he is really excited about the idea of the cleanse.
This morning I did make a shake because I wanted to taste what I got myself into. It was OK, I have had worse. I think that I will add fruit to it next time. I probably won't blog again until I start the cleanse so stay tuned!
Since having kids I have struggle with my weight. I am the one who will eat everything in sight when I am pregnant because I have an excuse. I am also the one who will not lose all the weight from the first pregnancy and will decide it is time for more little feet pitter patter.
Over the years I have tried just about all the fad diets. I was very successful with Atkins and then again with the Phentermine. The problem; those are both just temporary fixes and within a short period of time, all the weight I lost PLUS more came back.
Lately I have decided that exercise is what will help the best and so I have been using my treadmill when I can find the time. The problem; I can't find the time.
I was on the lake a few Saturdays ago and I ran into a friend that I had not seen in a while. She has always looked amazing. She has a nice little figure and big boobs. I was super jealous because she was rocking a bikini at the lake and was afraid to take off my moo-moo. We got to talking and she had mentioned that she had put some weight on and I found that hard to believe because she looked amazing as always. That is when she introduced me to Isagenix. She shared with me how much it has helped her as far as her energy level and in shedding the pounds. I had no idea what it was but I knew that if it was working for her, it had to work for me.
The next day I searched the internet high and low for this stuff and was able to find on Amazon for a pretty reasonable price. The more research I did, the more I learned. I discovered that this is also a network marketing opportunity and that intrigued me. If I use this stuff and it works, imagine all the people that would the be interested in trying it as well. What an awesome opportunity for me to get healthy, thin and make a few extra bucks. My friend referred me to the gal that she ordered from. She and I went back and forth and when I was finally ready, I placed my order.
If I read the tracking information correctly, my Isagenix box should be arriving at my house today, May 23, 2013. Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. As of my typing this, I have not decided if I am going to start this weekend or wait. I am tired of feeling crappy all the time and carrying around all this extra weight but at the same time, I don't want to put myself in a position that is going to allow for me to fail.
I am so excited to get started. I know that it is going to be rough and I know that cleanse days will suck, but it will all be worth it and I can't wait to show off my weight loss success.
I am looking forward to the extra energy that I am going to have which will enable me to get more things done and not just want to nap all the time.
I have been a fan of the Wen Hair Care Cleansing Conditioners but have been turned off by the price as well as the autoship program they put you on.
During a trip to a local drug store, I noticed the Renpure Cleansing Condition which was currently being offered as a BOGO item. With the price at $9.99 and with the BOGO special, that was just $5.00 per bottle. I could not resist giving it a try.
What happened next, what tragic, very tragic! The next time I was due to wash my hair, I was so excited and could not wait. HOLY HELL! I could not comb or brush my hair at all, it was all one big rats nest. I remained persistent and was finally able to finish combing my hair. Even wet, the texture of my hair was not what I was used to, but because this was a new brand of cleansing conditioner, I thought that maybe it would all work out in the end. It got worse. Once my hair was dry, it looked as if my hair was made of straw. It was stiff, coarse and very hard to manage.
I know that sometimes, there might be an adjustment period so I decided to try the Renpure again. Just when you think it couldn't get any worse, it did!
The next day I took both bottles of the cleansing conditioner back to the store where I bought them and never looked back.
I am easily frustrated when it comes to tangles and messes in my hair and this was just the worst experience ever and I could not believe the pain I was in while just trying to comb my hair.
I would rather pay the higher price of Wen and deal with the slightly greasy feeling it leaves behind. At least I was able to comb my hair!
