Third time's the charm!

It's been over two years since I posted.  Why?  

You may remember I was shocked to find out I was pregnant in the summer of 2013.  Our daughter was born in March of 2014.  We were elated.  I used Isagenix products to lose all my baby weight (50lbs!) by the time she was 6 months old.  I started training for the Rome marathon again..  Well...we were surprised again to find myself pregnant in February 2015.   Our son was born in October of 2015, and shortly after we moved 6000 miles from Italy to Southern California.   

Our move and transition was rough.  ROUGH.  I have gained 20lbs in the past few months from the stress.  I have a baby who cries all the time, I am deep in the trenches of post-partum depression, and I have two other kids who still rely on me for everything.  We are in a new city, new country, new state...and we have no friends or family close-by.  I have tried to sooth my frustrations and loneliness with comfort food.  No more.  I am deciding it is time to get back on the fitness & health wagon.  So I am obviously turning to Isagenix.  It has worked two times in the past...I have no doubt it will work this time.  

Today I start, at the weight I was when I arrived at the hospital, nine months pregnant, to deliver both my babies.  And I'm not pregnant.  I'm disgusted with myself and I want to make the change.  We don't plan on any more biological kiddos and so this will be it.  I'm going to get rid of this weight for good.  I want to be healthy and active and be a good example to them.  

I have decided my mantra for this cycle (which I'm calling 'third time's the charm') will be:

I have some hefty goals.  I want to finally get down to 160lbs.  I want to be strong.  And, hopefully, be able to run again.    

I am entering the IsaBody Challenge as well, and I joined the local YMCA a week ago.  

I am ready to make this transformation.   
I am stronger than any of my excuses. 
I will. not. fail.

Let's go!!

  1. Can you detail what you were doing in addition to the isagenix to lose the weight? I have 55 lbs of baby weight to lose. I have PCOS and have done 2 months of isagenix. I'm only down 6 lbs and seem to have stalled. I really need this weight to get moving. Thanks!
