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.
“I was so unhappy back then. I hated the way I fit in my clothes, and I didn’t let anyone take my photo,” said Jennifer. “I just didn’t love myself anymore.”
Jennifer had tried other weight loss programs but never truly followed them, which led to giving up. She even saw an old friend from high school post about her success with Isagenix but was too nervous to reach out. It took about a month for Jennifer to talk to her friend about the system. Since then, she hasn’t looked back.
Today, Jennifer is not only 76 pounds* lighter than she was that day, but she’s also a five-time IsaBody™ participant and our 2019 U.S. IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner!
“Isagenix has completely changed my life, and being named the grand prize winner changed my future the second I walked off that stage,” said Jennifer. “I knew in my heart that sharing Isagenix was what I wanted to do full time, and the following Monday, I walked into my job and gave my notice.**
“IsaBody continues to give me the confidence to face my fears. Once that happens, you finally realize there’s nothing you can’t do!”
Get to Know Jennifer
We recently caught up with Jennifer. Here’s what she had to say as our grand prize winner:
Isagenix: How does it feel to have been named the 2019 U.S. IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner?
Jennifer: It feels surreal. Each time I’ve participated in the IsaBody Challenge, it’s been a different experience because my starting place was different. I made progress and just kept going and going, and it was amazing to look back at past weeks and Challenges to see how far I had come both physically and mentally. To think I’ve come this far is an incredible feeling. I’m so honored to have been chosen and so excited to show others that they can achieve their goals, too.
I: What’s your best tip for making living a healthy lifestyle easier?
J: Always remember your “why.” Write it down, and put it everywhere: on your refrigerator, on your bathroom mirror, in your car. That why is what’s going to get you through hard times. You have to remember why you’re doing this.
I: Through most of your Challenges, you’ve been focused on weight maintenance and keeping off the 75 pounds* you’ve lost throughout your IsaBody journey. What do you think is the most important aspect to weight maintenance, and what challenges have you faced?
J: Honestly, maintenance has been easy. Through this Challenge, I have learned that I am in control of what I eat and when I eat. I’ve learned to have portion control and that eating every two to three hours is essential for me. I eat to fuel my body and don’t allow cravings to take over.
Of course, I’ve had times when I didn’t eat the best, but the amazing thing about the Isagenix System is that it allows you to get right back on track.
I: What is your favorite form of exercise?
J: I just recently starting doing yoga, and I love it! I love deep breathing, relaxation, and strengthening my body. Right now, I do yoga three times a week.
I: What are your top three must-dos each day to keep yourself on the path to success?
- I start every day by having my Complete Essentials™ Daily Pack and my IsaLean® Shake with Ionix® Supreme.
- I work on my personal development. (Currently, I listen to Brendon Burchard’s podcast.)
- I make sure to have daily contact with my team and my leaders. Every morning, as soon as I’m done taking my son to school, I check in with my team and prospective new Customers. I’m so excited for this part of my morning each day!
I: If you could tell fellow IsaBody participants one thing, what would it be?
J: The biggest thing I want people to know is that if I can do this, they can, too. I didn’t do anything extraordinary. I didn’t spend five, three, or even two days a week in the gym. I didn’t feel like I was following a strict guideline about what I could and couldn’t eat.
I simply wanted to lose weight and feel great, so I signed up for the IsaBody Challenge for the support and to keep myself accountable. I reminded myself daily why I was doing this so that I never forgot. I shared my journey with others for accountability, but also because it was amazing to watch them transform their lives along with me.
I started this Challenge with the goal of losing weight, but what I got in the end was so much more. Isagenix gave me the life I always dreamed of, and here I am, living it!

*Weight loss should not be considered typical. A two-phase 2016 study published by researchers at Skidmore College showed an average weight loss of 24 pounds after 12 weeks. The study evaluated the use of Isagenix products in men and women for weight loss followed by weight maintenance. As part of the weight loss phase, the participants took part in a calorie-controlled regimen of Shake Days and one Cleanse Day per week. During the weight maintenance phase, the subjects who continued the calorie-controlled program using Isagenix products better maintained their weight loss in comparison to those who transitioned to a traditional diet after 52 weeks. For more information on the study, see IsagenixHealth.net.
