The winner of the prestigious DMX Lifestyle Challenge for 2013 is Jim Joiner from Mansfield, Texas. Jim and his wife, Mellie, “teamed up” to inspire one another in accomplishing some truly amazing lifestyle transformations.
As a firefighter, fitness and health are crucial to Jim being able to perform his duties. This was made very obvious to him last summer when he was sent home from an active fire because he was unable to recover from the strain of fighting fire in the heat. Jim’s excess weight had really taken a toll. He felt like he had let down the citizens, his fellow firefighters, and his family by not taking care of himself. While getting sent home was tough, it was a wake-up call for him. Shortly after that experience, Jim started the DMX Life Coach’s Challenge with his wife, Mellie. The Joiner’s had tried to lose weight before and were anxious to try a system that addressed all of their needs, NATURALLY. With the help of the videos and the products in the Kit, they were able to change not just their eating habits, but their lifestyle. They started eating the way they knew they should. This couple was especially encouraged with the life coach’s tips. They lost enough to begin working out on a regular basis…Jim doing weights and cardio along with interval training and rope training at work, and Mellie doing fitness boot camp. They both were really seeing a difference. Once the weight started coming off, Jim added the DynaMAXX B4 product to his routine. His workouts intensified and so did his results. The inches started falling off and so did the pounds.
By Christmas of 2012 Jim was slimmer and trimmer than when he got married and so was Mellie. Fellow firefighters noticed. They were amazed at the difference, not just in Jim’s appearance, but in his ability to perform at work at a level comparable to when he started at the department 15 years ago. His yearly physical was better than it had been in years. People the Joiner’s had not seen in a while were stopping them to remark on how great they were looking and to ask how they were doing it…. DMX was the answer. Both of them felt better, had more energy, and much to his wife's delight, her husband even stopped snoring! Jim was no longer embarrassed to swim shirtless with his daughters anymore and his youngest daughter really loved that!
The greatest part is that the weight continued to drop. During the DMX Challenge Jim lost a total of 89 pounds, 26.5 inches, down 4 waist sizes and minus the 2X on shirt sizes. Mellie lost 48 pounds, 33 inches and down 4 sizes; something she didn’t think she would ever be able to do. The Joiner’s know that the changes that they were able to make by following the DMX System have made all the difference in the world. By using all of the products and watching the videos together this dynamic couple were able to support each other in making sustainable changes to improve the quality of their lives.
The Joiner’s are now healthy enough to do all of the things that they enjoy and their habits have changed thanks to the DMX System. They know that the life changes that they have made have done more than help them lose pounds and inches (and that IS impressive!)… this System has given them their lives back. Thanks to the DynaMAXX DMX System, Jim and Mellie are both looking better, feeling better, and living better!
The 2012 DMX Lifestyle Challenge Winner, Jill Evans, is an amazing story of belief, persistence and overcoming some of life’s greatest challenges. In the 8 years prior to being introduced to DynaMAXX, Jill battled three major surgeries dealing with and removing tumors in her body. As she was progressing beyond these surgeries, she was diagnosed with melanoma cancer. This led to yet another surgery and lymphadenectomy. The stress and struggles were taking a tremendous toll and one of the areas Jill turned to for comfort was food. On top of everything, in 2010, Jill lost her daughter's father. At that point Jill just wanted to give up. She didn’t care what she did, what she ate or how much; and her weight gain was excessive.
In June 2011, Jill went to see her doctor, Carrie Carda stating, “I want some Xanax, diet pills and something to help me sleep because I can’t sleep any more”. Dr. Carda replied, “No Jill, I’m going to give you something that will change you forever.” She then presented me with a DMX System and told me….”you CAN do this and I’ll be here to help you every step along the way.”
Inspired by that encouragement, Jill made the decision to change. She watched the daily videos, followed the recommendations from the on-line personal trainers and consumed the products contained in the DMX System. The results were dramatic. She lost 18 pounds the first month. By September, she was down 35 pounds, by Christmas 2011, 50 pounds and by September 2012, Jill had lost a total of 87 pounds and was feeling better health-wise than she had ever felt before.
At the October 2012 Corporate Rally, DynaMAXX announced her as the DMX Lifestyle Challenge Winner and rewarded Jill and her daughter Kaylee with an expense paid trip to Orlando, Florida staying at the beautiful Bonnet Creek resort property, a $1,000 shopping spree and 5 days at Walt Disney world. There wasn’t a dry eye in the auditorium when Jill was accepting her award stating, “Thank you Dr. Carda for believing in me and for introducing me to the DMX System. The support system is amazing! DynaMAXX is life changing. DynaMAXX is the answer. I will always be thankful and never be a day without it!” Congratulations Jill on your amazing accomplishment and for the inspiring example you have set for all of us here at DynaMAXX.
