Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have six children, and after I had my last baby I couldn’t lose the weight. My thyroid was not working well. I was tired all the time. I was frustrated, I could gain weight just looking at food. I was running 20-25 miles a week and not losing anything.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was totally frustrated and feeling like a failure. I was so tired.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I am so proud of myself for doing all the workouts, even the doubles. I didn’t cheat on anything, and I am no longer craving sweets or trash to eat. I am starting tomorrow again and ready to see some great results. I love my abs and core!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The 21 Day Fix was a complete set. It was easy to follow and doable. I loved that I could actually get it. I can see what foods that I have eaten in my day already because of the color containers. It makes all of the food groups make sense to me. When I leave the house, I make sure I have an orange container. It helps so much. I loved that the workouts are as challenging as you can make them and yet still 30 minutes! I love that they are 30 minutes.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Core strength. I can do plank for 3 minutes straight and push ups now! I have my husband, sister, and children all jumping into my workouts.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I like my arms and core. I have had people immediately notice (without telling them) that I have changed and look better. I am addicted to the daily workouts.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It was a closed group that helped to encourage clean eating and meals… plus it helped me keep focused on the workouts.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She encouraged us each day in our posts, and her challenges were very motivating. She’s really helping ladies be who they really want to be.
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 gave me energy and mental clarity. I had a real problem with brain fog before. My husband says “I am less irritable”.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I now have enough energy to be the mom that I want to be. Before starting the 21 Day Fix, I had to lay down every afternoon…but not anymore! I have more energy than I’ve had in years! I’m no longer drinking soft drinks to perk me up, where as before they were a daily necessity. I am able to keep up with my 6 children now.
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc…)
After struggling for a couple years to get my thyroid levels in balance, they are finally normal. My endocrinologist was so impressed, she’s considering Shakeology herself!
