Mom Ditches Sweat Pants and the Couch For Bikinis and Biking
Amber never really saw it happening. Over the course of a decade the mother of five’s weight had slowly crept up until she couldn’t even jump anymore. Before gaining more than 100 pounds, Amber used to lifeguard and play volleyball. The former athlete tried different things like eating healthier to lose the weight but nothing seemed to work. She began avoiding situations where her weight came under scrutiny until she wasn’t living much of a life.
“Being overweight took everything out of me and slowly narrowed my world until I was barely there,” recalls Amber. “The most painful thing was how I looked on the outside didn’t match how I felt on the inside.”
The Utah mom thought her spirit was crushed for good until a family friend introduced her to Isagenix.
Her first question? “I asked if it was safe because I wasn’t into fad diets,” explains Amber.
Fortunately for Amber, after giving the Cleansing and Fat Burning System a shot, she realized the complete opposite was true. After dropping 30 pounds,* she knew she’d finally found something that worked and was a healthy lifestyle change that she could maintain for good. As her energy returned, she began craving sessions at the gym and began getting involved in cycling races.
Several months later, the new Amber was virtually unrecognizable. After losing 105 pounds,* the vivacious woman who was dormant for so long emerged stronger than ever. Even her 21-year-old son who was away from home serving on a church mission didn’t even recognize her at the airport.
“Even I still do a double take when I see myself now because there’s the person that I had forgotten about and missed tremendously,” shares Amber. “But she’s here now and will never be missed again!”
Amber’s husband is especially excited that his wife has ditched the baggy sweats for bikinis and now wants to go everywhere with him and do everything. The 45-year old mom recently took second place in a 100-mile cycling race and started training to compete in a triathlon next year.
“Before, I couldn’t jump, run or climb the stairs,” says Amber. “Now that I’ve got the weight off and the nutrition from Isagenix, I can do it all. I’m in better shape now than in high school!”
The stay-at-home mom is so convinced of the power of Isagenix that she channeled her passion into a new business. Her sister’s already lost 90 pounds* and her brother-in-law is 5 pounds* away from reaching the 100-Pound Club.
“We’re definitely an Isagenix family,” says Amber. “They have all seen what it’s done for me and it has given all of us a whole new direction for our lives. A shared purpose where families can work and play together, which is what we’re all about!”
