Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
After having 2 C-sections (2004 and 2006) then having to have a partial hysterectomy in 2012, I felt I would make small gains but kept having setbacks and felt exhausted, was having digestive problems, and had hit a plateau.1 I thought that this was going to be my new body that I was going to have to accept which was depressing. I work full-time as a speech-language pathologist, I’m wife, and have 2 boys (9 and 11years) who are busy with sports. I worked out at a local gym 3-4 times a week taking different classes prior to starting program, which I gained cardio, but wasn’t losing ‘fat’ or seeing noticeable changes in my body for all the work I was putting in at the gym.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I decided that I really wanted to do it for myself and achieve my fitness goals that I had been trying to achieve for the past 9 years, as well as, set an example for other women, my family and my kids that you can be healthy and strong if you put in the effort!

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 I faced before beginning the program was finding time, especially for ‘myself’! Being a mom, wife and having a career, by the time there was time, It was night and I was exhausted, so would put it off. Another challenge was organizing meals for day. 21 Day Fix was easy to follow using the containers/guidelines, which was stress free since all laid out, then my Beachbody Coach checked in regularly, ran an accountability group through Facebook, and answered questions that came up, which kept me motivated and on target since I had to check in daily once workouts were completed.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The meal planning was really easy/simple to follow and it was all the foods I was already eating, so it helped organize my eating/portions and the workouts were fun, quick, and loved the variety to add to my current routine. I was shocked how difficult it was to get all the containers in daily, so after the first week I talked to my coach who suggested Shakeology to add, which I did starting on the 14 day. I was shocked after the 21 days how my body wanted to work out daily and how routine the meal planning fit into my daily lifestyle.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I did 2 rounds of the 21 Day Fix, and added Shakeology on 14th day to supplement food, since I was not getting enough. During that time I lost 37 inches total and 28 pounds! I am at my high school weight (which I thought I would never see again) have never had so much energy, and never felt so strong and healthy.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I’m proud that I was able to do this for ‘me’, my kids see me as strong and ‘can do anything’ ! Plus the feedback from other woman/men that I have inspired them has been an added bonus. If I can do it anyone can!

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Being part of the accountability group through Facebook, kept me accountable to complete my workouts since I had to check in daily, as well as, positive feedback from the other woman in the group.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
He checked in regularly, ran an accountability group through Facebook, which included daily posts once workouts were complete, answered questions that came up, encouraged me to take progress pictures and measurements, which kept me motivated, focused, and linked me with others to keep me on target.

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?
I added Shakeology at day 14, to help with getting all my nutrition in since I was full and not getting all containers in daily. I saw a huge difference in energy and helped with eliminating sugar cravings, bloating, and focus.2
