Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had a baby on February 12, 2015. I gained a lot of weight with her, and I am trying to get back down to my “pre-baby” weight. I started running and following the 21 Day Fix. I have completed it three times since I started the program on January 18, 2016.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I wanted to get back to a healthy weight so I could enjoy running and the outdoors with my daughter.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I fractured my ankle in August of 2015.* I had normally ran to keep the weight off. But since I was unable to run or jump, I could complete the modified exercises in the 21 Day Fix program. The modified exercises from Beachbody enabled me to start working out before I could run again.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love how the program had modified exercises so that I could do those at the beginning when I was less fit.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am amazed at how flat my stomach is now, especially post-baby! My stretch marks have also become less noticeable since I am not carrying around the extra weight.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am now more confident in my body, and I can fit into my pre-baby clothes! I am even thinking about wearing a bikini for this summer!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Our group is absolutely amazing. I could never have done it without them. Having the challenges in the group really motivated me to be accountable. I really wanted those shakes (haha)!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She is always so positive. Even when I had a bad day, she was there to pick me up and keep me on track with positive feedback.
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 amazing! It helped curb my appetite and helped me maintain my caloric goals.
