My Journey With Isagenix
with Jim King

Since starting Isagenix, I have never been better.  I have a great business that is growing steadily and a new lease on life.  At 58 years old, I have recaptured my youth!  18 years ago, I was at the highest competitive level of powerlifting.  I won the American Deadlift National Championships in 1992 with a National record lift of 635 pounds.  I weighed a pretty solid 220 pounds of muscle that I actually spent 12 years putting on!  I retired from competitive lifting and my weight fell to 196 pounds.  But, I slowly began to trade muscle for fat.  I gained a large spare tire around a waist that formally was a 6 pack!   I spent the last 8 years putting on & taking off about 10 pounds regularly.  I found myself working very hard, struggling to avoid becoming a victim of my family history.   On my dad’s side, my Grandfather, my father & his brothers all died from cardio vascular disease, either heart attack or stroke prior to 59 years of age.  On my mother’s side, my mother has suffered 3 heart attacks and bypass surgery, her first heart attack coming at 60 years old.  My younger sister had her first heart attack at 49 years old.

With this family history, I thought I had things covered by riding my bike 130 miles weekly and eating what I considered to be a healthy diet.  Then last fall, I had tightness in my chest and found out that I had a 95% blockage in an artery of my heart, which they fixed, by placing a stint in that artery.  My heart was in great shape, but the plumbing was faulty.   I desperately needed to do something to change the course of my future health.

My girlfriend and life partner, Lori Foster, began losing weight with Isagenix, and encouraged me to give it a try.    I began and have not looked back.  Having lost 30 pounds, I am a lean 167 pounds with 12% body fat.  My energy levels are high, throughout the day.  I am the same weight and size I was when I was 27.  My doctors cannot believe the changes in my blood work as for the first time every indicator is within the specified range.  My blood pressure is 104/78.   I cannot remember feeling and looking this good.  I am riding without pain or discomfort.  And, instead of riding at the back of a very elite group of cyclist, and getting dropped on every tough part of the ride, I am now a group leader, setting the pace.  I wake up pain free without the achy joints that I always blamed on “getting old“. And if I am allowed to talk about libido, let me just say a young man has nothing on me!
