Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had just become a first-time mom, and was loving the mommy aspect, but when I looked in the mirror I didn’t recognize myself anymore. It was like some stranger was looking back at me in the mirror.4 I was horribly unhappy. Nothing fit, I felt like I looked sloppy, and the woman I once knew myself to be was gone.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I wanted to be able to get back in shape and better than I had ever been in shape, so I could spend time with my son as he got bigger and wanted to do more things. I also needed to look good for myself to bring back my confidence and show my son that he has a confident and happy mom.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My lack of confidence. As I found my body getting stronger, I found my confidence being built back up. This program introduced me to weight training, which turned out to be my soulmate workout.

I felt accomplished after each workout.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Checking in every day with the other women in the group let me see that other people were having some of the same problems I was having — still wanting some sweets here and there and that they got tired as well.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She checked in with me every day, encouraged me when I was getting down on myself, and taught me to trust the process.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, or digestion/regularity?
