As I have mentioned before, Wes and I started on the 30 day Isagenix program last month, and have now completed all 30 days of it.
Going into it all, I was pretty skeptical and not really sure what to expect. But I did know that a lot of the friends I workout with had great results on the product, so I finally decided to give it a try. I really, realllllly, didn’t want to have to do a “wedding diet.”
Funniest ad ever… I give you a little bit of credit Slim Fast, although I would never drink you. My love for Blue Bell and buttercream is documented quite well throughout the blog, so it is pretty obvious as to why I did not want to be on a diet. Plus I run marathons, do Camp Gladiator, and run the dogs on a pretty regular basis, so that makes me feel somewhat entitled to 1/2 cup of icecream each night. Perhaps that is the wrong attitude, but it is how I feel and will always feel.
But, I decided to give Isagenix a try. With the 30 day program comes a 9 day cleanse kit as well as a whole bunch of stuff to make for shakes. Honestly, shake days weren’t really all that different from how I regularly eat. However, instead of oatmeal for breakfast, I swapped it for a shake, and then just kept my lunchtime shake pretty much the same. I still ate snacks. I still had icecream. I even drank wine and some very dangerous Joe T Margaritas! Cleanse days though? They were not fun. I will not lie to you and tell you they are anywhere even remotely close to fun.
Wes was a bit more strict than me. He apparently has an unbelievable ability to avoid eating ice cream straight out of the container with a fork each night. And the fact that I am doing it doesn’t bother him at all. That alone is beyond my level of comprehension.
Regardless, the stuff worked. Although my pantry was over-taken by massive amounts of product and we had to create extra storage room, it was worth it.
Now I believe all the stuff my camp gladiator friends were telling me, and I am somewhat to moderately hooked on Isagenix. I have already ordered the next round of shakes and am going to stay on the one or two per day regime. My mom has also started on it, as well as my dad, and they love it. Of course my dad gets to have much more interesting things in his shakes than me because the guy needs the extra calories. One of the only benefits of Crohn’s disease… crazzzzzzy metabolism.
So, our results? Here they are:
Wes, in 30 days, said goodbye to 19 pounds and 21 inches.
And me? Well I will not have to force 6 extra pounds and 15 extra inches into my wedding dress, and I get to take a trip to the alterations lady.
Curious about what we used? There is plenty of information here and I of course would love to talk your ear off about it.
