Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started 21 Day Fix, I was overweight, at 173 pounds. I was embarrassed to even look at myself in the mirror. I felt uncomfortable in everything I wore and was never happy with the way things fit on me. Before starting the program, I never believed I could be consistent or stick with anything past a week! On top of all of that, I was depressed every single day and felt like I had no purpose in my life.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I met my Coach who inspired me, and told me that I could do this! That I could see the results I was after. I have never had any type of support in the past when trying to lose weight or work out, and being a part of her group, with the support and encouragement meant the world of a difference for me. I was surprised my first week, and seeing that I had lost 4 inches in my waist the first week was all I needed to keep going!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Consistency was the number one challenge. Without that, I never followed through or stuck with anything. Not even other small things in my life, so I thought it was impossible for me to really stick with a workout program. With the meal plans, and workout schedules, it helped tons. Everything was laid out for me, I didn’t have to count any calories so that made things a lot simpler and stress free. The support from my Coach and others was a great factor in me showing up every single day. At first I didn’t want to let my Coach down. Then after that first week when I did see changes, I didn’t want to let myself down. When I think about where I am today, I never want to go back to not working out, and eating poorly. I felt terrible, and now? I feel amazing! I haven’t been bothered with my depression in what feels like ages! Beachbody completely changed my life for the better, and I am so, so thankful!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was a well-rounded program, covered everything from cardio, Pilates, yoga, and strength training. Perfect!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I dropped 8 pant sizes, and went from 173 pounds to 137 pounds! I haven’t seen that number on the scale since I was a teenager! I love how much stronger I have become, and I’m no longer out of breath after walking up a flight of stairs. I can even run up a flight of stairs and still not be out of breath! I’m proud that I have stuck with the program for well over six months now! I never thought I would make it past 1 week!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I’m much happier. I have tons of energy, and working out every day has kept my depression at bay. I feel like I have a purpose in life now! Seeing how much the Beachbody program has changed my life, I want to help others experience the same results, and feel the same way I do!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I never felt judged if I ate bad. There was always someone else who felt the same way I did, and to me, that made me feel at ease and I was able to tell myself, “It’s okay to mess up every once in a while.” The motivation, encouragement, and support from not only my Coach, but the many other women in the Group played a part in me showing up every day, therefore seeing those results.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
With daily motivation, and showing up every day herself. She truly inspired me, and was right when she told me I could do it. That encouragement meant a lot!
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 increased my energy, regularity, and my mood. My cravings for junk? Gone! I was the type of person who could eat pizza every day!2

I love that I can switch to another program at ease. After 7 rounds of 21 Day Fix, I moved on to 21 Day Fix EXTREME, and challenged my body even more to really turn it up a notch.
