Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I started my journey at 240 lbs. When I started, I was sad, depressed, and felt hopeless! I had just had my daughter, and, in a time that should have been filled with joy, I was angry and sad. I couldn’t believe that I had let myself get to that point! I would never go out of the house, and I rarely let people come over.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My daughter! I refused to settle with this body! I refused to let her see me unhappy because of my physical appearance! I wanted her to have a healthy happy mom that sets a good example of what health should be! I did it for ME! I knew there was something better than this, something better than waking up depressed and feeling fat every morning!!
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 starting was overeating! I had absolutely no self control! I ate my weight in chocolate cake most days, and then I wondered why I wasn’t losing weight! Once I started 21 Day fix, I figured out that it was my portions and probably the pounds of junk I ate daily. Once I started drinking Shakeology, paying more attention to my portions, and working out harder, the weight started dropping off, and my confidence started to come back!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
When I first started 21 Day fix, I was 205 lbs. I have lost 45 lbs. so far! That’s a huge accomplishment for me! I can now do burpees. When I first started, there was no way I was doing even one burpee!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life is completely different! I am so much happier and confident. In return, that has made me a better mom! I have this new passion and outlook on life! I am now a Beachbody Coach, because I truly believe in this product and in Beachbody products! I have a purpose now and a passion to help other moms find their confidence again!
