Taking Control

Ten days ago I signed up for the Isagenix Presidential Pak and three days ago started the 30-day Cleanse. Already I feel better–I’m not kidding. No doubt it has to do partly with not having sugar. But it also feels so good to be running lean, without the frequent snacking. Roasted salted almonds in particular. I like the taste of the shakes. I can start to play with additions when I want a change, but right now I like them the way they are.

We’re expected to take a small snack between the three meals, but I find I need a second snack in the afternoon.

The Ionix Supreme knocks me out for a deep night’s sleep. It has many of the same herbs I was taking for adrenal support and it delivers that same punch; within twenty minutes of ingesting it, my brain slows and suddenly the pillow is singing a siren song.

I think there are many other people like me who are desperate to lose the weight in a sensible manner for whom Isagenix will be a good fit, as it is for me. It’ll be easy to recommend it if people around me see the change over time!

I have tried other approaches but nothing fit me. This does. Some reasons:

  • I only need to prepare one healthy meal a day.
  • My other meals are prescribed.
  • I like the taste.
  • They have the same herbs I have learned are appropriate for me.
  • The protein-carb-fat components are sensible.
  • It doesn’t use fake sugar; if it does, I can’t taste it.

I don’t like the cost. It is a bit of a sacrifice but I have rearranged our budget because this is important. Some of it can come from my grocery budget.

Every time I ask myself what is the one thing that would change my life significantly for the better, I have the same answer: lose the weight. Live the rest of my life appropriately slender, as I was until I had my six children. Feel lean and healthy. It comes down to that.

It feels good to be finally acting on it in a lifestyle I can sustain for the long term.

I promise to post Before and After when I have something to show you.
