Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was tired. I worked out, but I wouldn’t consider it really fulfilling. I love dancing, Zumba, and running, but I was not looking at my diet at all. I love carbs and wine. I had a friend from high school ask me if I wanted to try a challenge, and the challenge changed my life.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was getting ready to turn 40, and I was not liking that at all. I decided to turn my habits around. It all started with a 21-Day Challenge. I just wanted to feel better and lose a few pounds, but, as my challenge progressed, I really enjoyed my experience. For instance, I started losing weight and inches, and I just felt soooo good!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I feel as though my biggest challenge is stress eating. Just grab a munchie when I am sad or stressed. Well, my challenge helped me break this habit. I continued my eating goals: drinking water, eating when I was hungry, and eating clean things. I decided to continue to do well and not give up on myself. The workouts helped me relieve stress, and feeding my body good things also helped!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I really enjoyed that the workouts are 30–40 minutes long. I can make time for that every day, and they are balanced if you follow the schedule.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have lost 50 pounds and 39 inches. I did six rounds of 21 Day Fix, one round of Hammer and Chisel, and one round of 21 Day Fix EXTREME. I have never felt this good in my own skin, and am so happy with this product.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am very happy with myself, and all I want to do is push harder and see what else my new 40-year-old body is capable of. I want to set a good, healthy example for my son. I want to inspire people to do this as well. It has been the best thing ever for me and my health. I am so happy to be in it, introduce new people to it, and am so excited about the people I have met through it! I think that I am in the best shape I have ever been in, and I continue to go forward in my journey!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Yes it did. It was nice to hear others meet goals and help each other through struggles.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She is there for me whenever I need her!
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 loved the shake, because it really helps with cravings and energy! I love to have it every day!2
