I'd like to share something I'm so excited about! I mentioned a little about it in my last post, but here are more details.  So I love being a mother- there is nothing else I would rather do with my life- it is the most rewarding thing I have ever experienced.  But it has also been the most exhausting and challenging experience of my life.  After Jarom was born, the stress of motherhood and 5 pregnancies in 6 years had definitely taken a toll on me physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I have always been passionate about health and fitness and even became a part-time Turbo Kick instructor after my 4th child was born in hopes that I could help people achieve their health goals.  I don't believe in diets- since they're not an effective long term solution.  My motto for weight loss and good health after each pregnancy was always- "Eat less- move more."  And after each of the first 4 pregnancies, the baby weight fell off quickly as I tried to apply this principle.
But after I had our 5th child, eating less and moving more was simply NOT working.  I could not get the extra weight off despite my best efforts.  10 months went by- and I had lost very little of the extra prego pounds.
  
The change for me came just this last April after watching "Food Inc".  I learned more about how nutritionally bankrupt our food has become, and I wanted to DO something about it.  I was concerned about the state of our health, running on low energy much of the time, dealing with sugar highs and crashes, and feeling overwhelmingly frustrated that I couldn't drop the baby weight.  I believe in the power of prayer, so I poured out my heart in prayer about all these concerns, asked for help... and the next day I stumbled upon a video about Isagenix.  I knew immediately that it was an answer to that prayer.  The fact that it was not a diet, and not a fast- but a total body nutritional cleanse really appealed to me, so I decided to give it a try- plus with a 100% moneyback guarantee, I felt I had nothing to lose.  I knew it was time to make a change and regain control of my unhealthy eating habits. 

I was so excited to start a new lifestyle!  And the results blew me away.  I lost 10 lbs. and 11 inches on the 9 day system, and went on to lose another 11 lbs. and dropped 4 dress sizes.  More importantly, I feel more energy than I have had in years and my cravings are supressed.  It feels so liberating to develop greater self-control over my sugar habit- (and hopefully save money on dental bills).  I rarely crave processed, refined, nutritionally void foods now because my body is finally getting the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it was really hungry for.  I can FEEL the difference.  The visible results are just a bonus. :)  What kept me on track during the cleanse was a clear motive that I kept in mind.  My motive was to have greater health and more energy to better serve my family.  I wanted to be an example of excellent health for my children.  Another critical factor in achieving this goal was the support of a fabulous coach and a network of new Isagenix friends from a support group to keep me accountable and inspired.

So it has clearly been a great blessing in my life.  So much so that I've decided to share it forward and become involved in promoting and teaching people about it.  So I'm now a nutritional cleanse coach- helping others achieve their health goals too.  What I love about this is I can work from home during the kids quiet time- and coach people as they make this healthy lifestyle change.  In this business, we can only succeed by helping others succeed!  What a blessing to have a chance to make an impact in the world and enrich people's lives through sharing this phenomenal product and opportunity.  There are a lot of misconceptions about it, so I'll clear some of those up in a follow-up post soon.  But if anyone wants more info- check out http://www.isagenix.com/ and watch the Isavideos.  And let me know if you have any questions about it.  It could change your life. :)

Nicole,
I am so grateful I took the 9-day challenge! I also went through what you did with having ow energy and craving junk and not losing the baby weight. I felt out of control and it was hard for me to handle our five prcious boys and all their energy! After getting amazing nutrition and cleansing my body I felt the power that I do have to be a better Mom! I was energized, motivated, and happier. It was just icing on the cake that I lost 7lbs and 13 inches. Having better health has changed my whole well-being and my family. If Mama ain happy aint nobody happy, right? ;) Having a highly nutritious food plan has been the key to my overall improved health and I'm loving it! Thanks so much for helping me to find peace through better health! ;)

Did you do this while still nursing? I'm feeling the need to change something and get my sugar cravings under control, but worry about making too drastic of a change that would affect my milk supply. I'm going to read more about Isagenix--- and maybe you can help me figure out what would be best for me.
