Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I did five rounds of 21 Day Fix before I tried 21 Day Fix EXTREME. I was nervous to start, because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to handle it. I ended up being surprised at how well I could keep up! Sometimes I struggled, but I just kept pushing through. I feel so good about the way I look and feel, and I love my new muscle tone! Next I moved onto Country Heat. For the first time ever, I enjoyed cardio! Country Heat was so much fun!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Before I started 21 Day Fix, I loathed myself. I hated the way I looked and that bled into the rest of my life. I was full of negative self-talk. Feelings of hating my body and the way I looked turned to feelings of stupidity and worthlessness. I finally hit a wall in December and realized that it was either change now or live like this forever. I jumped into 21 Day Fix with both feet. I started 21 Day Fix EXTREME in June when I finally realized that I needed a new challenge. I had grown so much that I needed to try something new. Country Heat allowed me to have fun while I worked out!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge is my food cravings. I have a hard time sticking to what I know I should eat. 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME help me keep on track by providing a defined eating plan, but still allowing for delicious food! Country Heat helped me enjoy working out!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love that is covers everything: eating, fitness, and support!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Since January I have lost 43 pounds and 53 1/2 inches. I did not lose weight while doing Country Heat, but I feel so much stronger and my endurance is much better!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel like I can do anything! There are no limitations on where I can go from here. I love myself and my body!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It showed me that I wasn’t alone on this journey. Everyone has struggles, even my Coach. It was a great place to share both my triumphs and my setbacks.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Monica is amazing! She has been so encouraging. She checks in on me all the time and makes sure I’m hanging in there. I know that she truly wants me to shine! Monica encouraged me to try 21 Day Fix EXTREME when I was nervous that it would be too much for me. She had faith in my abilities when I didn’t.
