Every Tuesday we will be highlighting one of our many inspiring transformations, better known as ViSalus Transformation Tuesday. Today we’re sharing Carly Hahn’s incredible story that is a great example of how ViSalus and the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge are about so much more than just weight loss- ViSalus is truly about transforming people’s lives. Below is Carly’s incredible story, in her own words.
“I will start in August 2006, I moved to Arizona to be with my Mom due to her being very ill. I also came to Arizona to get out of a very abusive marriage. I sold everything I had to move from Houston, Texas to Arizona with my two children. Within the first year my Mom passed away from an obesity related heart attack- she also had high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes and Breast Cancer. For the first time in my life I was TRULY ALONE.
To make things even worse, my abusive husband (at the time) found me. I was literally stuck, scared and had no one to help me. I not only suffered physical and emotional abuse, I was told repeatedly that no one would ever like me because I was fat, ugly, and worthless. Things got so bad that I took my children and we went into a homeless shelter for safety. On the advice of law enforcement and legal aid my identity was changed and I started over. In 2010, we had moved into a one bedroom apartment, I was scared, essentially terrified of life at this point.
Within 10 months a man walked into the local bar and asked if he could buy me a drink. As he went inside to get me the drink I ran out the back door. Yeah… I did. A couple of weeks later, he was there again and I stayed. Within a year I married the man of my dreams, and got 3 amazing step kids in the process. My life was heading back on track but still missing something.
A year later I found ViSalus and what started as a moneymaking opportunity turned into a LIFE CHANGE. I promised my Mom that I would be the woman she always knew I was on her deathbed. I CHOSE to change my life, I CHOOSE to be better everyday. I AM GRATEFUL for my life, for my family, for ViSalus for helping me become who I always knew I was.
When I started my first Body by Vi Challenge I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and pre-diabetic. After 60 days on The Challenge I stopped all medication and my cholesterol was at a safe level. Today I am healthier than I have ever been in my life!
To date I have completed 4 Challenges and the results have been incredible. I have lost 112 pounds, lost 64 inches and went from a size 22 to a size 8! Not only did I lose weight, but I was also able to gain 24 pounds of lean muscle through the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge! I utilized both the Shape Kit and Transformation Kit to achieve these results.
I now have been happily married for over 2 years and have everything I ever dreamed of. Now my mission is to be REMEMBERED AS ONE OF THE WOMEN THAT HELPED END OBESITY.
THAT IS THE CHALLENGE!”
While the pictures don’t do it justice, Carly even has the Vi-Guy with ‘ViSalus Rocks’ tattooed on her! If there was any question as to whether Carly was dedicated to fighting obesity with ViSalus, that alone should answer it!
