Join the IsaBody Challenge!Andrea Carrara
Palm Beach, Florida

Age: 47
Height: 5’7”
Total Weight Loss: 36 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 1

Overweight and in poor health, this former professional beach volleyball player couldn’t believe she had found herself in a place she swore she would never be. Being unfit wasn’t like her, and she knew she needed to make a change. With Isagenix, not only did she start losing weight, but she also experienced a profound change in her attitude and mindset and realized this is how she’s supposed to feel.




Join the IsaBody Challenge!Barbara Lingle
Winterville, North Carolina

Age: 38
Height: 5’7”
Total Weight Loss: 18 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 5

Barbara’s weight had always been dictated by her stress. Sometimes she overate to console herself, and other times she was unable to eat, leaving her at an unhealthy low weight. She was letting her stress control her. When she saw a photo of herself and realized she had reached 155 pounds, something in her changed. From that point on, Barbara decided she was in control, so she joined the IsaBody Challenge and finally found herself.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!Drew Key
Stone Mountain, Georgia

Age: 61
Height: 6’1”
Total Weight Gain: 21 pounds* of lean muscle
Number of Challenges: 3

Years ago, after losing his career in the recession, Drew felt life weighing down on him. He was heavy-hearted, gaining weight, and completely losing sight of what it meant to be alive. He was living like the walking dead, doing the same thing day in and day out and expecting a different result. He knew there must be more to life than this, and when he found Isagenix, he got his answer. Now, he’s living life to the fullest.




Join the IsaBody Challenge!Duncan Driscoll
Blacksburg, Virginia

Age: 58
Height: 6’0”
Total Weight Loss: 3 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 1

When Duncan joined the IsaBody Challenge, he grabbed his tape measure and let out the gut he’d been holding in for decades. As he looked down to read the tape, he was horrified at what he saw. His wife jokingly asked what happened to the man she married, and that was all the motivation Duncan needed. Now, he’s in the best shape of his life at 57, and his wife can’t stop bragging about his abs!




Join the IsaBody Challenge!

Eric Chen
Akron, Ohio

Age: 23
Height: 5’9”
Total Weight Loss: 18 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 1

When Eric finished his last collegiate swim race after a decade of competitive swimming, he had no idea how different life without swimming would be. In four months’ time, he gained 25 pounds and missed the competition and camaraderie he’d had with his teammates. Fast-forward to the end of his first IsaBody Challenge, and Eric is not only in better shape than he was as a swimmer, but he also has a community of friends he met through his new active lifestyle. Isagenix didn’t just change Eric’s life — it gave him a new one.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!Jarrett Valentine
Goldsboro, North Carolina

Age: 38
Height: 5’10”
Total Weight Loss: 3 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 1

Jarrett started the IsaBody Challenge to cut fat in his stomach area and see how much muscle he could put on in 16 weeks, but while doing the Challenge, he gained so much more. He noticed he was inspiring others to become healthy and fit, and his self-confidence grew as he quickly started seeing results. Jarrett has not only transformed his body but also his outlook on health, and for that, he is forever grateful.




Join the IsaBody Challenge!Jennifer Riveira
Tracy, California

Age: 44
Height: 5’3”
Total Weight Loss: 76 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 5

At 190 pounds, Jennifer never would have believed it if someone had told her that she could be healthy again, feel amazing inside and out, or move like she did in her 20s. But, that was before the IsaBody Challenge, and now she’s living that life. Today, Jennifer looks great and feels even better, and she’s never going back to how things were before.




Join the IsaBody Challenge!Jerry McGill
Lexington, South Carolina

Age: 54
Height: 5’11”
Total Weight Loss: 74 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 8

Jerry is no newcomer when it comes to the IsaBody Challenge, but during the past 16 weeks, he learned something about himself he had been ignoring since day one: He was constantly comparing himself to others and always asking, “Am I good enough?” Several devastating life events had created this pattern in Jerry, but in this Challenge, he realized his accomplishments are his and his alone. Today, he knows the answer to his question: He is good enough.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!Jessica Mull
Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania

Age: 38
Height: 5’3”
Total Weight Loss: 126 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 8

2018 was a big year for Jessica. Not only was she named an IsaBody Honorable Mention, but she also lost half her original body weight since starting her weight loss journey. She’s overcome numerous health challenges to get where she is today, and now she has an amazing son to cheer her on while they get stronger together. Jessica no longer makes time for negative thoughts or self-sabotage; she’s too busy doing whatever it takes to help other women change their lives.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!Lori King
Kingston, New York

Age: 47
Height: 5’4”
Total Weight Gain: 14 pounds* of lean muscle
Number of Challenges: 13

Since her first IsaBody Challenge in 2014, Lori has had her share of peaks and valleys. She knows the path to success is supposed to be that way, but that didn’t make the journey any easier. When an unexpected surgery sent her into surgical menopause at 43, she hit her lowest valley. Doctors told her the weight gain was something she just had to accept, but Isagenix, the IsaBody Challenge, and her amazing husband, Jim, gave her the confidence she needed to change her outcome.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!Lydia Hunt
Columbia, Missouri

Age: 33
Height: 5’3”
Total Weight Loss: 85 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 4

When Lydia started her first Challenge, she simply wanted to lose the baby weight she had gained over the course of two pregnancies. Little did she know, she was about to change from the inside out and completely transform her mindset. Lydia quit her day job, celebrated her one-year Isaversary, attended her first Global Celebration, and was recognized as an honorable mention all in the same Challenge! Now, she’s one of our finalists, and she’s not stopping there.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!Mari Weisman
Natick, Massachusetts

Age: 47
Height: 5’6”
Total Weight Loss: 5 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 8

A mom of three boys with two autoimmune diseases, Mari never felt confident or comfortable in her own skin. She didn’t like her reflection in the mirror, and that negativity consumed her. She knew she needed to make a change, so she did with the IsaBody Challenge. Now when she looks in the mirror, she feels happy and can see what her body is capable of. If she can do that, she can do anything, and she’s helping others do the same.



Join the IsaBody Challenge!

Melissa Barkell
Orting, Washington

Age: 47
Height: 5’11”
Total Weight Loss: 65 pounds*
Number of Challenges: 11

An unwanted divorce and personal family struggles haven’t stopped Melissa from becoming the best version of herself ­— not only for her but for her daughter as well. Instead of letting the stress and anxiety get her down, she’s focusing on feeling good about herself by letting go of her past and creating her own vision of an amazing future.




Join the IsaBody Challenge!Orlando Rios
Richmondville, New York

Age: 45
Height: 5’11”
Total Weight Loss: 13 pounds
Number of Challenges: 5

Following numerous health issues and misdiagnoses by his doctors, former U.S. Navy sailor Orlando knew it was time to start advocating for his own well-being and taking better care of his health. A lack of exercise and poor nutrition certainly wasn’t helping his condition, so when his wife brought Isagenix home, he knew he needed this nutrition in his life, always.




Join the IsaBody Challenge!

Pat Wedge
Taylor, Texas

Age: 50
Height: 6’4”
Total Weight Gain: 14 pounds* of lean muscle

As someone whose work requires him to travel for weeks at a time, it hasn’t always been easy for Pat to keep up with his health and wellness goals. With Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge, he’s been able to end each 16 weeks in better shape than he was before. He’s got the right nutrition and the determination, and he’s not letting anything stop him from becoming a member of Team Isagenix one day.
