Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had just had my second child. I lost 30 lbs before becoming pregnant but was still at my heaviest. I was unhappy with my appearance and overall did not feel good about myself. I wore loose clothes to try to hide it. I was always tired.4
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
After my first son it took my over a year to start to workout. So after my second I knew I wanted to make a change faster. I saw other coaches sharing their journey and decided I was ready to make a change.4
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I had no one to watch my kids to get time to go to a gym. I did not know where to start, I did not know how to incorporate weight training to effectively lose weight. Worst of all I am an extremely picky eater and never knew how to adapt my diet to a healthy eating plan. 21 Day Fix taught me about proper nutrition and not only helped me to eat proper portions but also my entire family. I do not eat meat and my sources of protein have always been limited, I have been told that I would never lose weight unless I drastically changes how I ate. 21 Day Fix meal plan has allowed me to learn how to eat without changing who I am.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The ability to workout at home in a short amount of time, still getting in an effective workout. A meal plan I can actually stick to. I enjoyed learning more about myself and my capabilities.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Not only have I lost over 62 lbs and over 50 inches, but I have gained energy and confidence. I have lost fat and gained muscle I didn’t even know I was capable of. I recently discovered I was not only capable of running a 10k but also winning my age category. I hated running my whole life and now I have the stamina to run and enjoy it. I learned how important eating the correct amount of calories in proper portions is, I never thought to increase calories to lose weight and build muscle.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am confident and proud. I know share my journey with others. I have always enjoyed doing service work and now I have found a new way to help others. I believe more in myself. I used to accept my family history as my future and now I know I am in control of my future. I am stronger mentally, physically and emotionally and I am confident this is my forever lifestyle.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Having a Challenge Group is a great asset, it has helped me stay accountable and feel supported the entire time. Even though I wasn’t physically with these other challengers, I always felt like I had to do my best for them as well.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She checked in on me daily, and even helped me in other aspects of my life, she became a true friend.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology has given me all the nutrients my body has never had. I have more energy, even when my child at 4 months was up hourly. I now sleep better, have more patience with my children, my body is also very regular. I am more patient with others and my relationships with family and friends has drastically improved.2
Tell us about your experience with Beachbody On Demand. If applicable, how has it helped you achieve your goals?
Having instant access without having to have Internet or access to a DVD player is great. I can save my workouts and travel without worrying how I will stay on track. I also love being able to use my phone and bring it in another room of the house and watch kids play while I use my phone to workout and not need to find DVDs.
