An Isagenix product user since 2011, Evelyn did not start her first IsaBody Challenge® until 2014. Prior to getting started with Isagenix, she weighed over 300 pounds, but successfully released 80 pounds* by using Isagenix products and exercising regularly.
However, after suffering from two broken legs in an accident, her weight-loss journey was stalled, causing her to take almost a year to recover. The accident kept Evelyn out of the gym and resulted in gaining back most of the weight she worked so hard to release. In addition, she was still working through past health issues and the death of a loved one. Her weight was a huge source of stress for her, preventing her from sleeping.
Even though Evelyn felt she’d hit rock bottom, she wasn’t going to throw in the towel. When she was given clearance to begin exercising again, she immediately went to the gym, even though she had to use a walker.
Once she had completely recovered from her accident, she decided to enroll in the IsaBody Challenge.
“I knew that if I totally committed myself to this nutritional system and my workouts once again, I would have a chance to lose the weight for good,” she says.
This year was her third Challenge, leaving her with a total of 229 pounds* lost and the title of IsaBody Finalist!
Evelyn credits IsaBody with helping her dig deep to find the confidence she always had inside of her.
“I used to suffer from really bad social anxiety because of my weight,” she explains. “Now I feel strong and empowered. That’s huge!”
An Inspiration to Others
Evelyn’s newfound confidence is something she’s sharing with others. Once she received the news about becoming a Finalist, she went on Facebook Live for the first time and shared with everyone.
“It was one of those breakthrough moments where I felt it would be selfish not to share this happiness with everyone that’s been cheering me on,” she explains.
Her story and her transformation have inspired many others to hit the gym and get in shape. Her husband and her daughter are two people she has been able to inspire.
Evelyn’s husband witnessed her results from participating in IsaBody, and he was so inspired he began an Isagenix System and dropped 65 pounds.*
Evelyn’s daughter has also had much success, losing weight and gaining lean muscle. She regularly works out with her mom, and they love incorporating some of their favorite Isagenix products into their workouts, especially e+™, AMPED™ NOx, and IsaLean® PRO Shake.
When Evelyn receives messages from people asking for advice about weight loss or those who are interested in the Challenge, she tells them to not be afraid and that “you have a whole life to gain.”
“Everyone starts somewhere, and it starts with yes,” she tells others. “I said yes, and because I said yes, this has been a gift. I’m the happiest girl in the world!”
*Weight loss should not be considered typical. In a study performed in 2012 by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 9 pounds with an average of 2 pounds of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix System. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet.
