Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started with 21 Day Fix and Shakeology, I was overweight and unhappy with who I saw in the mirror. I gave birth to my daughter and never lost the baby weight. I didn’t have time or a babysitter to go to the gym, so I was stuck. It had come to the point that I was hating shopping and seeing myself in the mirror. I couldn’t believe I had let myself go!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
What inspired me was my family. I wanted to have more energy, be stronger, and most importantly, be healthy! I needed to be healthy for my family, but most importantly for myself.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge was maintaining my weight after I reached my goal. That is mostly because I would basically do crash diets and I would starve. It only took one round of 21 Day Fix for me to stop looking at this as a diet and start looking at it as a lifestyle change. Shakeology was one of the biggest reasons I overcame my challenge, because I fed my body the best! It also took away all my cravings and gave me energy to go after a toddler! I learned how to have a balance in life: 80 percent nutrition and 20 percent workouts.2
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
What I love about the 21 Day Fix program is the simplicity of it. You have this much you can eat and here is a list of the foods! I’ve eaten more than ever while dieting. It already stopped being a diet and is instead a healthy lifestyle. I’m never looking back!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’ve lost the most weight in 21 days while eating more than I was before starting 21 Day Fix. Aside from eating right, I always slacked on the workouts. I love how my muscles are getting firmer and the sweat I get with just a 30-minute workout. I was able to lose 36 pounds and 45 inches in three months. Never looking back!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has made a complete 180. I am not the person I was back in March. I have more confidence and energy, I’m stronger, and I can just go on and on. All my family and friends can’t believe how I have lost all this weight and eat all this food. I now pay it forward because it truly changed my life.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
What kept me accountable was our Challenge Group. It was a key factor in my weight loss. My Coach and challengers were all doing the same, so it was a big community of motivation. I loved seeing everyone’s results. Also, seeing them post their workout gave me the push to do the same.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was there for me whenever I had a question, offered support when I felt down, and she’s my friend. She is one of the reasons I was able to achieve such great results in so little time.
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 is heaven on earth. I don’t go a day without drinking it, because it curbs any cravings I have. It’s my go-to “fast” food and gives me energy to tackle my day. It tastes like a frosty every night.2
Tell us about your experience with Beachbody On Demand. If applicable, how has it helped you achieve your goals?
Beachbody On Demand is amazing! Whenever I can’t work out at home, I just take out my phone and I can do my workout from anywhere. When my little one is playing, I can just do the workout next to her without going to the living room. Plus, I have the meal plan right there if I don’t have the book around.
