Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was exhausted all of the time. No energy to keep up with my kids. I had two children back to back and had let myself go.4 I knew I needed to make a change, because I was not happy having to shop at the “bigger” clothing stores. There are others in my family that are larger as well, and I did not want to follow that path.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I watched a friend of mine on Facebook transform herself after having kids, and I was fed up with myself and wanted to do the same. I wanted to become healthy and fit for myself and my family. I wanted to be able to be a good role model for my children and others.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I used to be very athletic in high school, so starting this program after 10 years of not doing much definitely worried me. I was worried I may fail. However, once I make up my mind to do something, I do it. I told my Beachbody Coach that I would be one of those “crazy Success Stories”… and here I am! TurboFire and Shakeology have helped me drop 51 pounds in just about three months. My Coach was there for any questions I had and encouraged me along the way. Following the meal plans, Shakeology, and the workout helped me achieve my weight-loss success. I plan to continue my quest to become even healthier with other Beachbody programs.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Chalene is a great motivator. She kept the workouts fun and the song selections were fantastic. She broke every move down so I was able to pick it up quickly.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
51 pounds down in three months! I also went from a size 20 to 12. I can wear my wedding ring again too! I am proud that I have shed this weight and that I learned I love cardio! Going from struggling with the 20-minute workout to completing the hour-long workout with ease, it is nice to see that transformation.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have so much more energy than ever before. I am able to keep up with my kids and also become a Coach to motivate others. I now eat healthy and strive to make a better me every day!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I was encouraged to check in each day, and it held myself accountable.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was there for all the millions of questions I had. She was full of encouragement and support.
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?
Shakeology definitely increased my energy, as well as curbed my junk-food cravings completely! My mood is also positive every day.2
