Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I am a mom, wife, daughter, sister, an aunt, and friend… Those roles always came first in my life, until I was 45 years old. I reached a weight and clothing size higher than ever before and developed high cholesterol, anemia, and an extremely negative self-image. I decided it was finally time to make myself a priority.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My children are 18, 15, and 10 years old, and yet I still had the occasional person ask if I was pregnant.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Emotional eating. Whether I was sad, hurt, angry, lonely, or bored, my go-to activity was eating. And not just eating, but eating terrible foods. I would make myself a sundae, consume a row of Oreos in milk, or eat a bag of Doritos and drink Diet Coke. Not only did this self-destructive habit not make me feel better, it actually made me feel much, much worse. The 21 Day Fix spelled out for me exactly which foods my body needed and how much of it to eat! In addition to learning proper nutrition and portion control, it also got me off the couch and moving! It has been life-changing!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love the simplicity of the eating plan and the variety of the workouts. And Shakeology is so great that it’s addicting!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I gained so much confidence and emotional well-being since starting my journey. I am proud that I took the first step toward a healthier me and even prouder that my children are now learning healthy habits through my example!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel confident and happy with myself. I haven’t been able to say that for a very long time.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
My Challenge Group keeps me excited and motivated to keep going and share my success with my group each day. The group members are incredibly encouraging and uplifting. We have become a family!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach is always so happy when we succeed. She’s been a wonderful motivator and friend.
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 has given me energy and curbed my cravings.2 I look forward to ending my day each evening with my sweet, healthy treat!
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
My cholesterol level has significantly improved with the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology!2
