Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting the 21 Day Fix, I had become very unhappy. I had zero self-esteem and no confidence. I didn’t care about my body or my health at all.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I knew I needed to get my weight and my health under control. I had a friend who used the program and had success, so I decided I’d commit to 21 days and see where I ended up.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge I faced was emotional eating. The 21 Day Fix helped me learn how to fuel my body with the correct foods in the correct portions. It also taught me to relieve stress through my workouts and not by eating junk.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that the 21 Day Fix was simple! Easy to follow and easily manageable. I was still able to eat my favorite foods, just in the proper portions each day. I also loved the simple at-home workouts. I was easily able to squeeze it in each day. It was also nice to have someone telling me what to do and how to do it instead of being left in a gym to figure out what I should do on my own.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’ve lost a bunch of weight and gained confidence in myself. It helped me push myself to my limits when I wanted to quit. It also helped me mentally overcome sadness and realize I was worth it and my health was worth it, which I think is the biggest accomplishment I’ve had during the program.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am definitely happier overall. I’m healthier and more confident.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Having to publicly post my food, water, and workouts each night in a Challenge Group was key to my success. It kept me accountable, because I didn’t want to fail publicly in front of others. It also helped keep me motivated knowing others were in the same boat as I was. It was also great sharing tips or recipes to try.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She always checked in on me to see how I was doing and gave me motivation and encouragement to keep going.
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?
I drank Shakeology, which I found really helped my cravings. Since I was able to drink a healthy chocolate shake every day, I didn’t need or want junk as often.2
